DEATH OF MRS. ROWLAND RICHARDS. HEADMISTRESS OF DYFATTT SCHOOL. SWANSEA. RALLIED ON FRIDAY. BUT A RELAPSE SET IN. It will be learned with general regret that Mrs. Rowland Richards, the Headmistress of Dy fatty School, Swansea, where her hus- band is also the headmaster, passed away on Friday afternoon, after a comparatively short illness. About a month ago she contracted a cold, and broD'chiaJ pneumciiia set in. Dr. John Evans was in attendance, and Dr. T. D. Griffiths was also called in. She rallied, and only cm Friday morning was reportad to be better, but a relapse set in, and x"r&. Riehajds died shortly before three o'clock in the afternoon at her residence in Mansel- street. Deceased was 57 years of age, end can be said to have spent her life in the scholas- tic profession in Swansea. When Miss Hogg, she was a pupil teacher at the old Hafod Copper Works School. In 1870 she entered the Swansea Training College, and secured her first-class certificate, re- ceiving &n appointment under the old School Board in 1875. A most successful teacher, she won general praise, and when in 1883 the vacant headmistress-ship of the Girls' De- partment at Dyfatty School became vacant the deceased received the appointment, and had been there ever since—a period of 24 years. She leaves, besides her husband, with whom the deepest- sympathy will be felt, be- cause he himself has not been in the best of health of laM, one son (a bank derk in Bris- tol), and two daughters, both of whom are <°ssista.-nts nnder the Board, one at Pyfatty, and the other at St. Thomas. The announce- ment of Mrs. Richards' death wM made at the school during the afternoon, --rld very quietly received, all present feeling they had lost a lovable woman.
