LOSS TO THE SPORT
DEATH OF MR. H. L. AUGUST
The sport of trotting, and the Wellington Trotting Club, lost an enthusiast by the death of Mr. H. L. August, which occurred during the holiday season. Born in Petone 59 years ago, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. August, he was educated in the district and then took up farming. For 38 years he and his brother, Mr. J. E. August, were in partnership as farmers and milk vendors, retiring about two years ago. Mr. August was a steward of the Wellington Trotting Club for nearly 30 years. During that time he owned and raced horses in partnership with his brother. The most notable of them were Frisco Lady, Frisco Boy, and Zolock Palm. Mr. August was also one of the older members of the Wellington Racing Club, a foundation member of the Woburn Bowling Club, and a member of the Waiwhetu Masonic Lodge. Mr. August is survived by his wife, a daughter of the late Mr. John Bentley, four sons, and two daughters.
