YOUNG WOMAN'S DEATH. - We hear with deep regret of the death on Tuesday evening of Miss Dorothy Maud Arnold, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Arnold, of Steephill Down Road. Miss Arnold who was 23 years of age, had served in the A.T.S. until ill-health brought about her discharge. Subsequently she was for a time, up to a few weeks ago, employed as an assistant at the local Co-operative Stores. Her father is an employee of the Ventnor Council, and with his wife and other members of the family will be assured of the deep sympathy of all who know them.

ARNOLD. - In ever-loving memory of our dear sister and sister-in-law, Dorothy, who fell asleep August 17, 1943. - From George, Alice and little Pat. One year has passed, our hearts still sore,
As time goes on, we miss her more

No one on earth like you we find.

She did her best while on earth she did dwell.

Free from all sorrow she sleeps with the blest."
