Bush Advocate, 7 September 1906 - KIRITAKI
... It is with much regret that I have this week to record the death of Mrs Clark, senr., who passed away at the residence of her eldest son, Mr John Clark, on the night of the 5th, at the age of 75 years. The poor lady had been ill for so long and suffered so much pain that though we grieve to lose her, her death cannot be looked upon as other than a happy release from severe suffering, as she had not even the relief of unconsciousness to allay the pain and weariness of her last illness. She leaves a family of six grown up sons and daughters to mourn their loss, three of whom, Mr John Clark, Mrs Mortensen and Mrs Philp are residents of Kiritaki. The others are Mr A. Clark, who resides in Dannevirke, Mr Malcolm Clark, of Kawhia, and a married daughter in New York. The funeral is to take place on Saturday. On account of the sad occurrence the management committee decided to postpone the concert, which was to have been held on Friday night, until Monday, the 10th September
Bush Advocate, 10 September 1906 - KIRITAKI
... The death of the late Mrs Clark cast quite a gloom over our district, and in consequence it was considered advisable to postpone the concert, which was to have been held on Friday evening until Monday as a mark of respect to the family of the deceased lady. It is hoped therefore that those having already bought tickets will be so kind as to present them on Monday evening, when the original programme will be presented. As will be seen from a perusal of the programme in Mr Prior's window, several of Dannevirke's favourite amateurs have kindly consented to assist, and there are besides items by our best local talent. To conclude there will be a most amusing farce, in which those taking part have been at much pains to make themselves perfect, and afterwards a dance will be held and refreshments provided, so that if the weather holds good we hope to have a crowded house.

DANNEVIRKE BATHING FATALITY

A MAN DROWNED IN THE MANAWATU
... On Friday morning last (28 Dec 1901) a man named G. Cowan, who was lodging at Petersen's boarding house, went to the Manawatu river for a swim, and as he did not return information was given to the police. A search was made but without result, until Mr Drinkwater junr, and another who were fishing in the Manawatu river, yesterday discovered Cowan's clothes on the banks of the river. From this it was evident that Cowan must have been drowned, but no trace of the body could be found until this morning, when Sergeant Stagpool and Constable Baker, having received information that it was believed the body had been seen in the river, went out early and discovered it stranded in shallow water. The body was taken into town, and is now in a room at Mr Baddeley's hotel (Junction Hotel). The deceased was about 30 or 35 years of age.
The deceased, so far as is known, has no relatives here, but it is believed that some reside in Otago and that a brother lives at Greymouth.

Bush Advocate, 8 January 1907
... We regret to record the fact to-day that Mr John Crist's little girl, who was severely scalded yesterday morning, died from the effects of her injuries at 5.30 last night. The accident occurred very simply, as from the evidence submitted at the inquest this morning it appears that while Mrs Crist was scrubbing the verandah her two children were playing at the other end of it. She left her work for a moment or two to go round to the back to get the hose with which to hose the verandah down, as the soap and water were drying too quickly in the sun. Before going she cautioned the children not to go near the water as it was hot, but as it had been out of the copper for some time and she had been using it on part of the verandah she had no idea that it was hot enough to scald them. While she was away she heard the child scream, and when she returned she found he lying in the passage at the front door with her clothes wet about the back and neck. She at once picked her up and removed her clothes, when she found the body considerably scalded. Dr Macallan was at once called in and applied the necessary remedies, but the child died later on in the day.
An inquest was held at the parents' residence this morning, before the District Coroner and the following jury:- Messrs T. Bain, J. Neagle, J. Cruickshank, J. B. Lloyd, J. Spencer and R. Pattison. The evidence of Dr Macallan and Mrs Crist was taken, when a verdict of accidental death was returned. The jury added a rider to their verdict expressing their sincere sympathy with Mr and Mrs Crist in their bereavement, and this expression of condolence was conveyed to the parents by the Coroner
