Coming to reside at Kingscote, he for a short period had the management of the Queenscliffe Hotel, afterwards be farmed the property now held by Mr A. G. Boxer and also a section in the Hundred of Haines. Mr Olds took keen interest in sport, owning several racehorses, be also played a fair bat at cricket, usually holding his end up while his partner did the scoring. When the first issue of this paper, printed on safean, was offered by auctlon, the late Mr Olds was the successful bidder, being knocked down to him at £5. About 10 years ago he retired to the mainland. The only member of the family at present on K.I. is Mr John Olds of the Salt Lake.
