There, passed away at the Molong Hospital on Friday, July 4th, in her 63rd year, Mrs. Edith Cady, wife of Mr. H. P. Cady, well known citizen and one-time Mayor of this town.
A native of Cudal, Mrs. Cady was a member of the Williams family, pioneers of that district, and was married in Molong in 1898.
She had enjoyed her usual good health until a couple of weeks ago, when she entered the hospital after her return from a month's holiday spent in Sydney. She gradually became worse and, following an operation, gradually sank, but the end came with an unexpected suddenness which prevented her two sons, Cecil and Hugh, from reaching her bedside until too late.
After a service conducted in the Methodist Church by Rev. Guy Walker, on Saturday afternoon, the funeral cortege left for the Presbyterian portion of the Molong cemetery, where a service was conducted by Revs. Robertson and Walker, her four sons acting as the pall-bearers.
A long line of friends and relatives followed the remains to their last resting place, headed by members of the Foresters Lodge, of which body Mr. H. P. Cady is the secretary. A large number of beautiful wreaths almost obscured the coffin, amongst them being tokens from the Boy Scouts, Hospital Auxiliary, Women's Church Aid, and Country Women's Association, in all of which bodies the deceased had been an active member.
Numerous letters and telegrams of sympathy were received from absent relatives and friends. Beside her husband, four sons and one daughter remain to mourn their loss, Phylis Royal Hospital, Paddington), Cecil (Strathfield), Fred and Archie (Molong), Hugh (Bournewood). Another son Alfred) predeceased her some years ago.
Brothers are Arthur (Cowra) and Thomas (Sydney) and sisters Mesdames Rooney (Concord), Harris (Enfield), Allen (Chatswood), and Leathem.
The sympathy of a wide circle of district friends is extended to the bereaved family Mr. P. Quinn had charge of the mortuary arrangements.

A Tribute to the Late H. P. Cady
In the year 1891 two sturdy young men arrived in Molong from Goulburn seeking their fortune. They were both blacksmiths, who had served their apprenticeship in that city. 
They were H. P. Cady and Tom West. Molong was then the terminus of the railway, and about 100 teams carried supplies further west and brought back wheat and wool. Those young men saw the opening and setting-up of a blacksmith and wheelwright shop opposite the railway good shed. They toiled early and late, shoeing heavy horses and cutting tyres. They were a most obliging pair and became great favorites with the teamsters. They always had more work on hand than they could do.
The partnership continued until the railway opened to Forbes in 1893 when Mr. West sought fresh fields and pastures new. 
Mr. Cady carried on the business alone. He used to board at the Post Office Hotel, now occupied by the Molong P.P. Board, and he used to jokingly, remark that he was sold three times with the business.
He was a very active member of the Light Horse and, in 1897, when Queen Victoria celebrated her diamond jubilee, he was one of a batch sent, to England to represent N.S.W. He had a very pleasant trip and, in after life, used to recount the things he had seen and the characters he met. 
On his return, he married a Miss Williams who predeceased him by about three years. 
He was a prominent Oddfellow, and took great interest in the Molong branch. He was a member of Molong Municipal Council for many years and, for about four, terms, Mayor. He always worked hard for the advancement of the town. Water, electricity and closer settlement were his chief interests. 
When age began to climb up, he resigned from public life and attended to his own affairs.
He was always a friend of the underdog and especially those who could not help themselves. Now that he has gone from amongst us, we can truly say that one of Molong's good men has gone to rest.
