    Obituary: SHORT, Henry Thomas

    The death occurred in a Gympie (Q.) private hospital on Friday night of Mr. H. T. Short, formerly of Lower Southgate, Sportsman's Creek and Dorrigo. He was 75 years old.


    Mr. Short was born at Lower Southgate and resided at Sportsman's Creek for 10 years before he went to Dorrigo, where he lived for 35 years. During that time he had charge for many years of a Dorrigo junior farmers' exhibit and a non-competitive Dorrigo district exhibit at the Grafton Show. He was also associated with the North Coast exhibit at the Sydney Royal Show for a long time. He was a member of the Dorrigo Shire Council for many years and about four years ago he retired and went with his wife to live in Gympie with a sister.


    He was an ardent member of the Methodist Church and in his younger days was a teacher and superintendent of the Brushgrove Methodist Sunday School.


    Besides his wife and a married daughter in Gympie, Mr. Short is survived by a son, Mr. Alfred Short, formerly of Dorrigo and now of Rous, near Alstonville. Mrs. C. Pullen, sen., of Sydney, and Mrs. Reuben Doust, of Bellingen, are sisters. Mr. John Short, of West Maitland, is a brother, and Mr. S. H. Short, of Brushgrove, a cousin.


    The funeral was held at Gympie on Saturday.
