MR. J. S. AUGUST DEAD
The death occurred at the Auckland Hospital on Thursday of Mr. John Samuel August, late of Lower Hutt, in his 87th year. Mr. August was keenly interested in trotters for 50 years, and drove in races till he was well over 70. He was born at Ngahauranga, and took up farming. Later he leased the Black Horse Hotel in Christchurch, and then acquired the Islington Arms, which he sold about 25 years ago.
Mr. August owned a large number of trotters, including King''s Clere and Black Child, the best trotter of his time (about 30 years ago). Others to race with success in his colours included Sleeve Link, Mary Child, and Child Abdullah.
Mr. August''s wife predeceased him about two years ago. There are four sons living, Messrs. E. J. August, Christchurch, W. G. August, Auckland, J. E. August, Lower Hutt, president of the Wellington Trotting Club, and S. M. August, Auckland. Another son, Mr. H. L. August, died about eighteen months ago
