Yule, Donald Cooper, Farmer, Strathaen, Hamua. Mr. Yule occupies 1100 acres on lease from the Maoris. About three-fourths of the estate is already cleared, sown with English grasses and well stocked with sheep and dairy cows. The grounds around the homestead include both orchard and flower and other gardens, and the house is a pretty villa of six rooms. The proprietor was born in Featherston in 1868, and is the second son of Mr. Robert, and the grandson of Mr. Alfred Yule, who came to this Colony in 1840, and whose picture appears herein. Educated in Featherston, Mr. Yule learned farming with his father. In 1893 he married Miss Catherine Willis, daughter of Mr. William Willis, recently of Featherston, but now settled at Scarborough, near Pahiatua. Their family consists of two girls.
