Williamstown. A sad case of drowning occurred in a pond, the property of the Glamorgan Coal Company, on a Penrhiwfer Mountain, on Saturday, by which a young man named John Williams, aged 17, son of John Williams, Amos Hill, lost his life. A number of lads were bathing, when de- ceased, having got beyond his depth, was ob- served to be sinking. A young lad named Flic- ker, who attempted to" save him, would have bean drowned but for a pupil teacher named Evan Jones, who jumped to his rescue and brought him to bank, the deceased having sunk in the meantime. The body was not discovered until three o'clock on Sunday morning, despite the gallant efforts of Elli Davies, John Davies, Thomas Beynon, John Lewis, Penrhiwfer; Lancelot Isaac, Thomas and Hczekiah Harris, Williamstown; Daniel Thomas and Edmund Rees, Glamorgan Hotel, and John Lewis, Peny- graig, whose diving efforts in discovering the body were beyond all praise. Messrs Jacob and William Thomas also rendered valuable assistance. The sixteenth annual services were held at the Weslfcy Church on Sundaty. Mr Ty James, Llwynypia. and Mr Saunders, Clydach Vale, officiated. Recitations and dialogues were given by the school children, who had been well taught by their teachers. On Monday the an. nual tea. was held. A large number of the young scholars partook of the sumptuous tea provided for them. The tables were presided over by Mrs Cuttell and the Misses Cuttell, Mrs Daniel Lewis, and Mrs J. Lewis, Mrs Musgrove Mrs W. Jones, Mrs Rowlands, Mrs Williams, the Misses Williams, Mrs Bishop, and Mrs Green, who were assisted by several willing helpers.
