QUE QUE, 9 No­vem­ber 1918. — There is an im­prove­ment in the po­si­tion of things gen­er­ally at Que Que and this has been main­tained for some days. The na­tive cases are prac­ti­cally fin­ished, and the Euro­pean pa­tients are be­ing daily dis­charged, only three re­main­ing in hos­pi­tal at present.

The farm­ing dis­trict of Que Que have had a very se­ri­ous loss by the death of Mr J. E Knooe­sen, who died at his farm Roslin, from Span­ish in­fluenza, on Wed­nes­day morn­ing last, Oc­to­ber 2o, he came to Que Que from the Colony a few years ago with the ex­pressed in­ten­tion of giv­ing farm­ing in Rhode­sia a fair hon­est trial and he was just be­gin­ning to reap the fruit of his labour when death called him away.

He leaves a wife and three chil­dren, who are at present out at the home­stead. Mr W. A Knoosen, his brother, will carry on the farm.

The sad new that Mr Dun­das had passed away on Sun­day morn­ing last, No­vem­ber 3, cast quite a gloom over the town.
