MAESTEG. DEATH OF DR. J. DAVIES. Mr. John Davies, M.D., J.P., Maesteg, died suddenly on Sunday morning at his resi- dence, Brynllynvi. He was 62 years of age, and only complained of feeliing unwell on Friday. He was seen by Dr. Parry, Ponty- eymmer, his brother-in-law,, but no anxiety was felt about the patient's condition. Early on Sunday he was seized with severe illness, and when Dr. Rowlands was called at 5.30 a.m., it was only to find that life was ex- tinct. The cause of death was heart disease. Dr. Davies was a prominent figure in the local political world, and was the means, about 1884, of forming the Mid-Glamorgan Liberal Association,, over whose counsels ho presided for many years, entertaining many Liberals of note at his house. He was an ardent Nonconformist of the Congregational denomination, but before taking up medical study at Glasgow, he was a student of the Presbyterian College at Carmarthen, his native place being Llandyssul, Cardigan. His burial will take place at Bwlchygroes. Dr. Davies married Miss Jenkins, sister of Mr. Gwilym Jenkins, Gelli, and there was no issue. He was a member of the Maesteg District Council and the local school board from their formation. In the time of the local board he was a member,, and was the first county councillor to represent Maes- teg, being elected in 1889. For six years he was an alderman, and was during the alder- manic period created a justice of the peace. The late doctor was once medical officer to North's Navigation Collieries and to the Llynvi and Ogmore branch of the Great Western Railway, and under the Factories and Workshops Acts, but these appointments he relinquished two years ago. At his death the only public appointments he held were those of parochial doctor to the Bridgend and Cowbridge Union and public vaccina tor.
