I At the Police Court on Tuesday a rent col. ⢠lector, on behalf of a client, asked for an ejectment order against a woman who, he said. owed £ 0 on account of rent.

Her daughter paid the rent as a rule. After some explanations by the agent and tby Mr Horatio Jones, who appeared for the owner, the Clerk CMr H. C.

I With fall military honours, the funeral took place on Wednesday of Lance-Corporal Maurice Ward, Cth Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers, youngest son of Mr and Mrs J. Ward, Eustoa-road, Bangor. The deceased, who was 21 years of age, joined the 6th Battalion R.W.F. some time before the declaration of war, and was latter- ly stationed at Cambridge. He was taken ill last week, and was removed to a hospital In Cambridge. His mother and sister, on hear- iug that he was ill, proceeded to Cambridge on Saturday, but he died before their arrival. His illness he bore with soldier-like fortitude, and his death cast a gloom over his company, among whom he was very popular. His officers spoke in high terms of his work and had singled him out for promotion. Before the body was removed from Cambridge the mili. tary authorities conducted a brief service there. The funeral was of a very impressive char- acter and testified to the esteem in which the deceased wa3 held particularly by his fellow-workmen in the Permanent Railway Department of the London and North Western Railway Co. and by the officers and boys of the Railway Institute Brigade, of which he was a member when the corps was formed. The cortege was headed by a firing party from the 11th Service Battalion of the South Lanca. shire Regiment, now stationed in Bangor. Then came the band of the training ship "Clio," who played Handel's "Dead March." They were fallowed by a gun carriage on which reposed the coffin covered with a Union Jack. A number of fellow-workmen of the deceased from the Permanent Way Depart- ment, which was closed for the afternoon, acted as bearers. In the funeral procession were also the Railway Institute Boys' Brigade in charge of Capt. Perkins, a number of friends of the deceased from the 6th Battalion R.W.F., who came over from Cambridge specially to pay their last tribute of respect, the band of the 11th Service Battalion of the South Lancashire Regiment, and a detach, ment of the National Reserve from Menai Bridge. The chief mourners were Mr and Mrs J. Ward (father and mother). Rev. R. Ward, curate of Barmouth, and -Mr J. Ward (brothers), and Miss Cassie Ward (sister), with other relatives. Major Whiskin was in charge of the military arrpjagements. The Rev. T. Lewis Jones, vicar of St. David's Church, officiated, and the choir of the church attended and sang the hymns "How bright those glorious spirits shine" and "0 fryniau Caersalem." The "Nunc Dimittis" was also suiior to a chant composed by the Rev. T. Lewis Jones. At the conclusion of the service a party of the South Lancashires fired a volley over the grave. Numerous wreaths were sent, including a magnificent one from the Institute Boys' Brigade, which I rested on the coffin, and from the officers and men of the deceased's company at Cambridge. MR WM.
