Mv. A. P. Anderson, of "Oak Lodge," Best St., Devonport, celebrated his 95th birthday on Saturday, and enjoyed chat ting with a few friends and a stroll round lils garden. He received numerous congratula tions and telegrams from rela tives and friends from the mainland and nearer home.
Mr. Anderson still takes a keen interest in international and politi cal affairs and is possessed of a wonderful memory. He has one sister living in Victoria, who re cently celebrated her diamond wedding. She and her brother are the surviving members of a family of 14, three others of whom lived to be over 90.
Mr. Anderson was born at Cullenswood on the East Coast in 1856 and as a young man selected land in the region. In his early 30's he took a trip to the North west and was specially interested in the Pardoe farm of the late Mr. R. D. Stewart, whose fame as a cheese-maker was Tasmania-wide. Mr. Anderson said yesterday that he felt convinced that the North west had more to offer him and he decided to examine the possi bilities. At the time the silver lead discoveries at Zeehan were the topic of the day and he de cided to visit the region Taking boat for Strahan he tramped over the 30-mile track to Zeehan, and a very rough track he found it. When he reached Zeehan the only hotel at the time, kept by a man of his name, was full and he had to sleep on sawdust. The next two nights he found rough accommoda tion in a lean-to.
After making full inquiries at Zeehan he pushed on by track via Heemskirk by track to Trial Harbor.
At Burnie, he found that a rail way to Waratah was under way and he bought a block of ground at the corner of Mount and Lad brooke streets and, with the aid of a carpenter, built on it and started a store dealing principally in farm ers' requirements. He said he used to buy farm butter and export it to the mainland.
After seven years he purchased land at Flowerdale and engaged in farming. For successive terms he was a member of the Table Cape Road Trust.
Mr. Anderson purchased a pro perty at East Devonport and, after making a trip to New Zealand, re turned and purchased a cottage in Best street. He assists with thc garden work and last year cut the hedge on the property.
