Dowlais Man's Tragic Fate. SON RESIDES IN ABERDARE. On Friday morning the body of John Evans, shoemaker, who was employed by Mr. J. Rees, Bristol House, North- street, Dowlais, and lodged at 6, Well- street, was found on the mountain at Twynywain, Trecatty, near Dowlais. The discovery was made by a woman named Mary Owen, who was looking for a strayed pony, and she informed the Dowlais police. The body was after- wards removed by Constables Hunter and Kaley, on the Dowlais Ambulance car, to the local mortuary. It seems that Evans, who had done no work this week, left his lodgings in the afternoon. He made a call in the even- ing at an inn where he had some drink, and the landlord, who went to Rend him a part of the way home, appearo to have been the last person to see the deceased alive. When discovered, Evans was lying at the bottom of a piece of rock several feet in height, over which he had. evi- dently stumbled. In his pockets were three pawn tickets, a door key, knife, and 4d. in coppers. The deceased, who was between 45 and 50 years of age, be- longed to the neighbourhood of Aberyst- wyth, and was a widower, but a son resides in Aberdare.
