      The demise of Mr. F, L. Phillips, of the Royal Queensland Yacht Club, came as a sudden shock to the yachting fraternity. Mr. Phillips was well and favourably known as an ardent supporter of sailing and his death is very much lamented by all his colleagues. Some few weeks back the deceased gentleman was down in the Bay in Mr O'Beirne's yacht, the Bohemian, and getting wet, contracted a cold, which led to pneumonia. He leaves a wife and a large family of bright boys, whom Figaro condoles with. RIP.
