from Pastoralists' Review, 15 September 1908

It is with great regret that we have to record the death of Mr. Ainslie Mills, so well known in Riverina pastoral circles. The deceased was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mills, of Uardry Station, near Hay. He was born in Melbourne in the year 1874, and was educated at Toorak and the Melbourne University. For five years Mr. Ainslie Mills studied Medicine at Ormond College. In 1896 he returned to pastoral life, and took up the management of Uardry Station for his father. In 1901 he married the daughter of Colonel Tom Price, and three daughters were born to them.

At the time of his death Mr. Mills was president of the Hay Pastoral and Agricultural Association and a councillor of the Carathool shire, of which he was an ex-president. As showing how much he possessed the confidence of the community, at the recent election for B riding of that shire he polled sixty-three votes out of a total of sixty-nine. His sound judgment, genial manner, and tactful consideration for others specially fitted him to take a leading part, and he put his heart and soul into everything with which he became associated. Great sympathy is felt for his widow and family, and for his bereaved relatives.
