Sad Death of a Retired Welsh Farmer. The death has occurred, under tragic cir- cumstances. of Mr. Moses Thomas, Cwm Isa, Curie. The deceased, who was in his 82nd year, was a retired farmer, hay. ing been exceedingly successful whilst farm- ing. He had been in retirement for some years, and had lived with his son at Cwm Isa farm, which is situated midway between the Royal Hotel, Capel Curig, and Peny- gwrycl. It was the custom of the deceased to leave home for a few days, when he would visit some of his relatives and friends in the district, but he always returned to spend Sunday at Own; Isa. It was on Thursday week, about 6.30 a.m.. that he was seen by his son at Cwm. He left shortly after for his daughtei s residence, Bryn Gyfeilia farm, Capel Curig. He arrived at the latter place and remained there umil about 4 p.m., when he left for home. He was seen later in the village of Capel Curig, and was heard passing the Royai Hotel. No anxiety was felt as to his whereabouts until Sunday, when He failed to return according to his custom, and becoming alarmed the family] wired to all relatives. None of these, how. ever, had seen anything of him, and his sudden disappearance at once developed into a mystery. On the Wednesday search parties were organised, about 40 farmers with dogs scoured the country side, the rivers and all likely places, but to no pur- pose. This search was diligently kept up, and, on Sunday morning Mr. Owen Wil- liams. who is bailiff at the Royal Hotel, dis- covered the body in the Capel Curig lake. THK INOUEST. On Monday, the Coroner, Mr. Pentir W illiams, conducted an inquiry into the chusc: of death at Cwm Isa. Farm. The Rev. H. H. Roberts was elected foreman of the jury. EYidence was given by Mr. William Wil- liams, Fron Heulog, that he saw the deceased about 7 p.m. on Thursday evening. the 24th, going in the direction of Ogwen Lake, about 600 vards distant from the village of Capel Curig. He brought him back and accompanied him as far as Llugwy Cottage. where he bade him good night. Owen Williams. bailiff at the Royal Hotel, said at about 7-15 on the Thursday evening he heard deceased passing the Hotel. It was dark. but he knew his footsteps, and also heard him talking to himself, which was a habit of the deceased. About nine on Sunday morning he went in search of the deceased and found his body in the lake which at that spot was about 6 feet deep: His face was downwards, his stick was in his left hand and his cap in his right hand. In reply to the Coroner, the witness stated that at this spot the side of the lake was about 100 yards from the road side. There was also a small gap in the wall, and he was of opinion that deceased must have gone through this opening. There were marks of the deceased's feet slipping on a rock into the lake, and he must have got up and got on the rock and fallen over the other side, which was much deeper, and where the body was found. A verdict of Found drowned was re- turned, with a rider to the effect that a strong petition be sent to the County Coun- cil asking that immediate steps be taken to place a wall or fence at this spot. On the motion of the foreman, a vote of sympathy with the relatives was passed.âThe family conveyed to those who had assisted in searching for the body, their sincerest thanks. Deceased leaves one son and two daughters to mourn his loss. The funeral took place on Tuesday at Capel Curig Churchyard, the Vicar, Rev. Sinnett Jones. officiating.
