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.
