S. $13,440) in a New South Wales government lottery has finally been paid 7 years after it was won — but not to the man who held the winning ticket. The ticket was held by E. J.

His sister. Mrs. A. S. Fly, of Bondi, Sydney's famous beach- side suburb said: The ticket was no secret. We all knew about it and so did the Lottery Office.
