      DEATH OF MR. A. S. BARTON - A PROMINENT GRAZIER
      A prominent grazier in the person of Mr. Arthur Stirling Barton, owner of Cuttabunda and Moorandah stations, in the Walgett district, died yesterday, after a short illness from haemorrhage of the brain, at his residence at Homebush, in his 60th year. The late Mr. Barton who was one of the best known men on the land in the north-western district and a familiar figure in Sydney, was a director of Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., and of the Australian Bank of Commerce. He was the youngest son of the late Mr. Robert Johnston Barton of Boree Station, near Molong. His only surviving brother is Mr. Robert Darvall Barton, late owner of Headingly station, in the north-west corner of Queensland, and now a resident of Sydney. Another brother was the late Mr. C. H. Barton, who represented the Macquarie seat in the Legislative Assembly for some time. Deceased was formerly owner of Polly Brewan station in the Walgett district, and of another station on the Bogan. He was a member of the council of the Pastoralists' Union and a vice-president of the Sheepbreeders' Association, and also at one time occupied a seat on the Walgett Land Board. His wife, the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Frank Smith, of Cumboogal, Dubbo, and a family of four sons and four daughters survive him. Two of the sons are on active service, and a third is about to enlist. One of the daughters is married to Mr. Hugh Taylor, of Gunnoo, near Wellington. The interment will take place this afternoon at the Field of Mars Cemetery, where two of Mr. Barton's brothers lie buried.

      OBITUARY

      Yesterday news was received of the death at an early hour that morning of Mr. Arthur Sterling Barton, at his residence, 'Overlau' North Sydney. The late Mr. A. S. Barton was the youngest son of the late Captain Barton, one of the pioneer graziers of the Molong district, and was 59 years of age. He leaves a widow and family.

      His wife was a daughter of the late Frank Smith, a former, owner of 'Camboogle ' (near Dubbo), now the property of the Craig family, and he and Mrs. Barton were connected with quite a large number of old squatter families in the west. The sons are Lieutenant J. Barton, now in the officers' camp near Sydney; Ben Barton, who is also in camp, and E. Barton, a youth under age. Mrs. Taylor, wife of Mr. Hughie Taylor, of 'Eulalie,' is one daughter, and there are three others.

      The late Mr. A. S. Barton was a brother of the late Major C. H. Barton, of Nanima, and though his immediate interests of late were not in Wellington, he was a familiar figure in it some years ago, having resided at Montefiores for some considerable time as the holder of the property now owned by Mr. Harry Taylor. He held other properties in the west, in the Brewarrina and other districts, but his immediate interests were at Pollybrewon station, near Walgett. The late Mr. A. S. Barton was in Wellington a few days ago, when he seemed to be in robust health, and Mr. J. T. P. Bassett, when in Sydney a few days since, was frequently in his company, when he appeared to be well. The news of his death came as a shock, therefore, to his Wellington relatives and friends.
