DEATH.

The death took place on Saturday of Mr. R. Herkes, manager of Burn-side Station from Malaria fever. We understand the deceased was out mustering when he was stricken down and lay unconscious in the bush for some days. He was brought to town on the passenger train on Friday but the efforts of the doctor were unavailing, and he died as above stated. To his sorrowing wife we extend our deepest sympathy.
