Obituary

Obituary.

Mr W. H. Waters, for many years known in Melbourne in connection with theatrical journalism, and for a short time a contributor to the Australasian under the nom de plume of « Call Boy, » was found drowned on 2nd July in Barbeta's baths.

Mr Peter Johnson, printer, youngest son of the late Mr Peter Johnson, died at Camper-down, Victoria, of consumption, on 23rd May, at the age of 26. He served his apprenticeship in the office of the Camperdown Chronicle, and attained the position of overseer. He afterwards obtained a situation on the Melbourne Telegraph, where he was so highly esteemed that after he was compelled to leave on account of ill-health, his place was kept open for him for a whole year. Much sympathy is felt for his widowed mother.
