DEATH OF MRS. AARON DAVIES. PONTLOTTYN. It is with a feeling of deep sorrow that the many friends of the Rev. Aaron Davies, of Pontlottyn, will hear of the sad|bereavement which has befallen him in the loss of his beloved wife, Mrs. Hannah Davies, who departed this life on Wednesday, the 23rd of January, at the age of 67 year". The news, though unexpected to friends at a distance, bad for some time past been anticipated by those nearer home, for deceased for several months had given signs that her days were drawing to a close. An affection of the stomach had early in tho summer manifested itself, and in spite of all that the best medical aid could render, and that change of air and scenery could do, it was evident that the hand of death had stretched forth to snatch from amongst us one who by her kindness and generosity had made herself beloved by all. For nearly 40 years she had been a niost loving and devoted wife to Mr. Dariee, and had in more ways than we can tell, proved her- self to be a IX-nefactor to the poor of Pontlottyn, and a neighbour W horn to know was to lore. The great respect in which Mr. Davies is held is not only in his own home and parish, but throughout all South Wales, has been made manifest by the large number of letters which are continually pouring in. Among them was one from the Rev. T. C. Edwards, D.D., Bala, written in Shrewsbury, conveying, in addition to his own personal sympathy, a vote of con- dolence passed by a meeting of the Theological Committee of the Welsh University. One of thettrst to send words of sympathy and comfort was Lady Swansea. Her letter runs thuf — Singleton, Swansea, January 24, '95. Dear Mr. Davies,—I can- not resist, though thus early, to intrude upon your grief, for it was with real sorrow that I read the sad tidings of your loss in to-day's South Wala r)ail!i News. How little I thought, when reading your kind, sympathetic letter in my bitter sorrow, how soou yon would be feeling the same anguish. And may God support and comfort you, as He is doing to me, for without that aid life would be impassible. Again I beg to say how deeply I feel for you.— Believe me. Your sincere friend, A. SWANSEA." The funeral took place on Monday last at the Risea Churchyard, where the family grave bad been opened some 36 years ago. Though the day was as wintry as could be a large number of people assembled shortly after 10 o'clock at the house, where a short service was conducted by the Revs. G. Phillips, Pont- newynydd, and T. Rees, D.D., Cefn. A hymn was sung and the funeral cortege wended its way towards the Brecon and Merthyr Railway Station, where a special train was ready to proceed as far as Bassaleg. At all stations on the downward journey the train was joined by kind friends, and the procession at Bast-aleg had increased to very large dimensions. A special train having taken the funeral from Bassa- leg to Risca the procession was re-formed, and pro- ceeded to Zoar Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. Here the Rev. D. Oliver, Rhymnev, presided, and the Revs. D. Morgan, New Trodegar, and T. Thomas, Brynhyfryd, Rhymney, opened the service by read- ing and prayer. Very touching addresses were then delivered by the following :—Revs. D. Williams, Newport J. Prys, Llanover Mr. Alfred Thomas, M.P. Rev. J. Evans, Abercarn R. O. Jones, Bed- linog and Mr. T. C. Thomas, Bedlinog. The Rev. G. Owen, Rhvmney, closed with prayer. At the grave, the Rev. E. Thomas, M.A., Brithdir,delivered a brief address, and Evangelist J. Harris, Elliot's Town, prayed. The singing throughout was led by Mr. James Powell, Pontlottyn, and at the chapel Mr. W. H. James very ably presided at the organ. The coffin, which was of polished oak with brass furniture, was the work of Mr. Robert Davies, undertaker.
