      MR JOHN McDONELL.

      With tragic suddenness, Mr John McDonell passed away peacefully whilst resting at his home on Tutaenui Road, Marton, on Wednesday afternoon, in in his 70th year. He appeared to be in his usual health, being of a robust appearance, and his sudden death came as a great shock to his relatives and friends.

      Mr McDonell was a keen sportsman, and was formerly well-known in the racing world, having raced Papatere and Bonnie Rill. For a number of years he officiated as clerk of the course for the Rangitikei Racing Club, of which he was elected a life member on retiring. In appreciation of his services as steward, Mr McDonell was elected a life member of the Marton Jockey Club at its last annual meeting. During the years 1921, 1922, and 1923 he filled the office of president of the Marton District A. and P. Association, and always took a keen interest in the affairs of the association. For a number of years he followed the occupation of farming in the Sanson, Halcombe, and Marton districts, finally retiring to take up his residence in Marton. Mr McDonell leaves a widow and one son (Wilson McDonell, of Dannevirke), and two daughters (Mrs Henry Lampp and Mrs Albert Lampp, of Marton).
