Edward Ernst Moule (c. 1869–1940)

Dr. E. E. [Edward Ernst] Moule, of Pingelly, died shortly before noon yesterday after his motor car had got out of control and fallen into a creek bed. While driving from the hospital, where he had made his morning visit, Dr. Moule apparently collapsed over the wheel of the car, which rapidly gained momentum down a hill, crashed through two fences and fell into a creek bed about six feet deep. Dr. Moule was immediately extricated from the vehicle and taken to the hospital, where life was found to be extinct.

Born at Saddleworth, South Australia, 71 years ago. Dr. Moule was educated at St. Peter's College, Adelaide, and the Adelaide University. After practising for some time in South Australia, he came to Western Australia and practised at Kalgoorlie, Wagin (21 years), Swanbourne, Toodyay and Pingelly. He came to Pingelly five years ago. He was widely respected throughout the Great Southern.

The funeral took place at Pingelly this afternoon after a short service in the Anglican Church. The deceased leaves a widow and two daughters.
