The death occurred in Sydney recently of Mr. Chas. H. [Charles Hunter) Nicoll, who for many years was manager of Haddon Rig Station, Warren, until the property was disposed of by the late Mr. James. Richmond founder of the famous merino stud, to the late Mr. F. B. S. Falkiner. After leaving that district the late Mr. Nicoll managed a station in West Australia, and during the past few years he was at Carwell Station in the Gulargambone district. The deceased, was 69 years of age and years ago he was a keen show supporter, having a string of well-bred horses competing at Western shows with marked success. He was well liked and highly respected by a wide circle of friends. The late Mr. Nicoll, who died on the 6th instant at a private hospital in Leichhardt, was a native of Victoria, and went to Haddon Rig about 1883, where he resided for 5 years. On leaving Haddon Rig he purchased a property in the Trangie district, where he resided for a short time, and then went to Western Australia, where he managed Behn-Ord Station for the late Mr. D. P. Durack for a number of years. Returning to New South Wales in 1931, Mr. Nicoll took charge of the Carwell-Merino Stud for Mr. Fisher, where he resided until his death. He enjoyed good health until a couple of weeks before his death, when he visited Sydney for a holiday and to consult a specialist. He felt much better, but the specialist advised a few days' rest in the hospital at Leichhardt, and within half an hour after entering the institution he passed away. He is survived by two sons Jack (New Angledool Station, N. S. W.) and Charles Richmond, of Landsome Station (Queensland).
