    Deceased was born in county Longford, Ireland, in the year 1840. Twenty-four years later he arrived in Sydney and his first employment in this country was as a dairy farming hand at Kiama. In those days there were no awards governing hours and pay and he worked 18 hours a day for the princely sum of 15/ per week. After twelve months at Kiama he sought a change of employment and applied for admission and was accepted in the mounted police,he gave about ten years service and during that period was stationed at Pilliga, Deniliquin, Wilcannia, Barradean and Menindie,respectively. He would relate many interesting and exciting experience's encountered in the force and he has to his credit the distinction of having captured, with the aid of a black tracker, three armed bush rangers near Milparinka. On his retirement from the force he had attained the rank of sergeant. It was now that he heard the call of the land, and in 1876 he selected "Springfield," at Gum Flat, where he remained until the time of his death.

    In carving a home in what then was primeval bush, Mr. and Mrs. Makim had all the early pioneering difficulties to contend with. The railway extended only us far as Singleton and transport in the days before motor cars, was an arduous proposition. The fact, however, that they were able to carry on and remain on the property for over half a century, speaks much for their perseverance and the faith they held in the district.

    Whilst successfully working his selection, the late Mr. Makim found time to take his share of the responsibilities of public matters. He was one of the provisional councillors of Bannockburn Shire and subsequently served on the council for two terms.

    The family traditions in this respect have since and are still being upheld. One son, Cr. G. S. Makim, is at present a member of the same shire,and other son, Mr. R. W. Mnkin, is a member of Warialda P.P. Board, and yet another, recently deceased at Manly, was for many years interested in local government. Deceased was also a committeeman of the P and A. Association for several years, and in the early days was a large exhibitor of cattle at the annual show. As a Justice of the Peace, too, he for many years gave service to the community. The late Mr. Makim . is survived bv a family of four sons and two daughters, all of whom are well-known in the north-west. The sons are Messrs. John Makiin, of "Hibernia" Warialda; Cr. George S. Makim, "Currawarra," Gum Flat; R. W. Makim,Pallamallawa, and Fred W. Makim, of "Springfield," Gum Flat. The daughters are Mrs D Wilson, Garah, and Mrs. R.D. Woods, Parramatta.

    The interment took place yesterday at the Gum Flat cemetery.
