Edwards, of Waunlwyd, Penbryn, Cardiganshire, and late head-assistant at Cadoxten-Barry Girls' School, took place on Wed- nesday afternoon at Penmorfa Welsh Calvinistic Methodist .Burial Ground, amid every demonstra- tion of sympathy and respect towards a young lady whose invariably bright and genial disposition had won for her a place in the affections of all who knew her. The funeral was very largely attended, amongst those present being friends from Cardiff, Barry, Swansea, and the Rhondda Valley. The Rev.

The coffin, which was literally covered with floral tributes, was borne from the house to the grave on the shoulders of farmers and others who had known the deceased frem birth, and several appropriate hymns were sung. Work was suspended in the neighbourhood at noon, and the local school (where Miss Edwards was trained) was closed in order to enable the children to 'attend the funeral, the entire proceed- ings being of a very affecting character.
