Mr. Hope Osborne, of Widgeongully, near Jugiong, New South Wales, died suddenly last month while driving a motor car.

He was the eldest son of Mr. Ben. M Osborne, sen., and was born off the Cape of Good Hope in 1869. He was educated at the Sydney Grammar School, and at an early age took up pastoral work. In 1869 Mr. Ben. M. Osborne, sen., divided the Jugiong Estate, which comprised Widgeongully, Redbank, Benangaroo, Bundarbo, and Gunnong Jugrawah, all worked conjointly, among his five sons, the late Hope Osborne receiving Widgeongully.

In 1898 he married Mary, daughter of the late Mr. Clement Sabine, a well-known pastoralist of South Australia, and leaves a family consisting of two girls and one boy.
