      Mr George Ishmael Chant, of Purga, died suddenly at his residence yesterday (our Ipswich correspondent wired last night). From information to hand it appears that the deceased gentleman yesterday morning went out into his garden, and not returning in a reasonable time, his wife sent a lad employed at the house to look for him. The lad found deceased lying on his back. Assistance was speedily procured and the deceased was carried into the house, but he was past all human aid. The late Mr Chant who was 75 years of age was one of the early pioneers of the district, having lived at Purga for nearly 40 years. He is survived by a widow and grown-up family.
