Attempted Suicide at-Traherbart While Mr. John Owen Daniel, of Dum- fries Street, Treorchy, was on his way to Swansea, to sing at the Eisteddfod with the Treorchy and Pentre Choir, on Tues- day of last week, he had to change trains at the Treherbert Station. While on the rlatform waiting for his train, he noticed a man crossing the bridge, throwing his hat down on the metals, and when reach- ing the nlatform divesting himself of his coat, plunging forward just as an engine which was shunting came along. Men shouted and women screamed. Young Daniels, who is a member of the Treorchy Ambulance Brigade, with great presence of mind rushed forward and pulled, the man back just as the engine was within a yard or two. On Daniels asking him what he meant, his only reply was: Me can't see." Mr. Daniels firmly believes that the man intended ending his life. He was dressed respectably, and did not smell of intoxicants. We congratulate Mr. Daniels on his courage and prompt- ness. I
