The sad news of the death of Sister Maud Basset, late of A.I.F., came as a shock to the residents of Yarraman, where she is fairly well known. While abroad the unfortunate girl contracted lung trouble, and she passed away at St. Martin's Hospital early on Thursday morning. Her three sisters are: Mesdames Lang, McIvor, and Thannett, of Yarraman, and her only brother is Mr. Jack Bassett. Much sympathy is expressed for her relatives as only in February last they lost their mother.
