THE LATE MR. MAYNARD COLCHESTER HARRISON. It is with extreme regret we announce the death of this gentleman, which took plase on Friday morning last at his residence, May Rose Hill Villa, Cefncoed. Up to within a few days of his death Mr. Harrison had enjoyed comparatively good health, and although he lived until near his sixty-eighth birthday, his apparently strong constitution appeared to promise a life of ad- vanced age. It was not to be so, however, for about a week before his decease he was struck with paralysis- from which he lingered, with scarcely any hope of re- covery, until his death. Mr. Harrison was a man widely known, not merely by the attraction of his social and kindly disposition, but for his business tact, his devotion to the interests of justice and fair-dealing, whether they involved the advantage of employer or em- ployed, and his strict; integrity in all matters with which he was concerned. For upwards of half a century did he serve the Dowlais Iron Company faithfully and honourably, and so great his merit that he worked him- self from the position of the humblest clerk to the im- portant and trustworthy office of cashier, and that in one of the largest commercial establishments in the kingdom. About six years ago, to the honour of the Dowlais Company be it said, his zeal and anxiety in his work having made their mark on his health, he was told that he had done his duty nobly and faithfully, and that for the remainder of his life he might enjoy his days in the quietude of domestic and social life, and that his salary would be continued without any deduc- tion. He shortly after this removed to Cefncoed, and there, relieved of all anxiety, it was his pleasure to en- courage, when opportunities offered, all young people putting forth efforts for advancement in their several spheres of life. Sprung on the maternal side from a noble family (the Colchester peerage), he had instinc- tively the bearing and manners of a gentleman, and therefore the poorest felt, that in him all their little grievances would be heard, and whatever was wrong would as far as possible be remedied, so that among all classes and conditions the late Mr. Harrison was re- spected, and it may be truly said of him that he died without an enemy. His funeral took place on Monday, at Pant Cemetery, and was attended by a large concourse of people, all appearing to testify, by their expression and demeanour, that one had passed away who was an honour to his family, and the district generally.
