OBITUARY.—We deeply regret to record the death of Mrs. Ellen Williams, wife of Rev. J. H. Williams (Bryntardd), pastor of Taftechan Welsh Congrega- tional Church, which took place at her residence, 8, Gellifaelog-terrace, on Monday se'nnight, after along and painful illness extending over a period of six months, the cause of death being phthisis. The deceased lady, who was 47 years of age, was a native of Carnarvonshire, and removed from near the neigh- bourhood of Pwllheli about 16 years ago to this town. She was a. faithful member of Gwernllwvn Welsh Congregational Church, and that place of worship will sustain a serious loss through her demise. The deepest sympathy is felt for the reverend gentleman and his two sons in their sad bereavement, coming as it does so shortly after the death of an only daughter. The funeral, which was private, took place on Satur- day afternoon last, the deceased being interred at l'aut New Cemetery, the officiating minister being Rev. R. Trevor Jones, Gwernllwyn.—As will be seen from our report in another column, the Board of Guardians on Saturday passed a vote of condolence with Mr. Williams and family.

JOHN DAVIES.—We regret to record the death of Mr. John Davies, which occurred on Saturday week at Cardiff. Deceased for many Jears was one of the best-known men in Dowlais, and e held an important appointment under the Dowlais Iron Company. When he resigned that appointment he went to reside with his eldest daughter, Mrs. David Beynon, Salisbury-road, Cardiff. In Septem- ber last his health failed him, but nothing of a serious character was apparent on Friday night. Towards midnight, however, he was seized with weakness, and at 12.30 o'clock on Saturday morning life ebbed peace- fully away in the presence of his daughter and son-in- law, deith ijeing due to syncope. The late Mr. Davies enjoyed universal esteem in the town, and his depar- ture for Cardiff in Ausrust, 1894, was sincerely regretted by all. He was for over 40 years connected with Hermon Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church, and for 30 years was an elder of the cause there, and acted as secretary for about 25 years, afterwards serv- ing aa treasurer. Upon resigning the secretarial duties, he was presented with a powerful monocular microscope, the deceased being an ardent scientific student. He was also treasurer of the Dowlais auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society for 30 years, and on his retirement in 1893 was presented with a copy of the most costly Bible issued by the society as a recognition of his long and active associa- tion therewith. Finally, on leaving the town to spend the remnant of his day at Cardiff, he was pre- sented with an illuminated address by Hermon Church, and also received from the staff at the Dow- lais Iron Company's Offices a beautiful writing desk as a slight maik of their esteem and admiration. The deceased gentlemen was 65 years of age, and was a native of Carmarthenshire, coming to Dowlais when a young man. The mortal remains of the deceased were brought from Cardiff on Thursday by the Rhym- ney Railway train reaching Caeharris Station at 3.20 p.m. The corpse and mourners were met at the station by a large concou-se of people, and subse- quently proceeded to Pant Cemetery, where the interment took place in the grave where the wife of the deceased was buried.
