      Much regret was ex.pressed in the district on Saturday week last for the family of the late Mrs. E. R. Olsen when it became known that she had passed away at, the residence of her daughter, Mrs. D. Shields, Camp Hotel, Werribee. The deceased lady, who was born at sea, came to live in Werribee when quite a young girl, at that time there being only a few huts constituting the township. Marrying the late Stephen Hopper, she went to live at the gate-house well known as "Hopper's Gates," where she resided for upwards of 40 years, rearing a family of sons and daughters who are well known in the district. A large cortege of friends followed the remains to the local cemetery on the 27th, to show a last token of respect. The Rev. Laceby Cecil officiated at the graveside. The raffle for a pair of 'ear-rings donated to the local branch of the Red Cross Society by Mrs. Colin Campbell will be drawn at the Mechanics' Instithe, Werribee, on Saturday the 2nd inst., at 5 p.m. It is particularly requested that all books of tickets, and cash for tickets sold, be returned to Mr. C. W. Tyzack before the above date, so that everyone who has purchased a ticket may have a chance of drawing the winning-number. [2]
