Son of William CLEMENTS and Mary Ann nee MATHERS, Maryborough, Qld.

Mr. Edward Clements, a native of Maryborough, but lately residing at Maleny, met with, a serious accident on'Tuesday, by being thrown from a cream  cart. He was conveyed to the residence of his sister, Mrs. W. Jefferson, at Gympie, where he was attended to by Dr. Cuppaidge. The latter, however, had little hopes of him from the first, and the sufferer passed away on Wednesday morning, the funeral taking p|ace the following morning at Gympie. Deceased was 38 years of age, and leaves a wife and four children to morn his loss. He was a brother of Mrs. G. Crew, of this city, and was a member of the well known family who, in the early days, resided in Queen street, opposite the Ululah reserve.

CLEMENTS.— In loving memory of Edward Clements, who was accidentally killed at Maleny, June 12th, 1916.
He left his home in perfect health,
Never thinking death was near ;
Not dreaming that he never would
Return to wife and children dear.
Inserted by his loving wife and children.
