LLANDILO. DKI'ARTED ONES.—Seldom has Llandilo been thrown into such gloom as during the present week, conse- quent upon the death of one who was in the full Hush of manhood, and of another who was in the bright bloom of youth. After an illness of a couple of weeks' duration, Mr Den Lewis, draper, Compton House, was called hence on the [8th inst. Up to the day before his death, it was believed he was on a fair way to recovery, but the signs were deceptive, and to the intense surprise and deep sorrow of all who knew him, at an early hour on Thursday morning he was no more. He had only attained his thirty- third year, and leaves a widow and two children to mourn his loss. It is no idle formality tc say that the sympathy of the town has gone out towards her, for if her bruised spirits could be healed and annointed by it, then surely they would. His genial and happy disposition made him many friends, whilst his industry and geniality in business were marked traits in his character. His losi will be severely felt at the English Congregational Church, where his musical voice will be missed and how to fill the post of treasurer, which he held, will be a problem. The little church feels his death keenly, and of th's there were affecting manifestations at last Sunday morning's service. The large assemblage at his funeral, which took place at the Tabernacle on Monday, was of itstlf a proof of the respect entertained for him. Business houses were closed for the afternoon, and along the line of route to the churchyard blinds were every- where drawn.—To Mr and Mrs Williams, Medical Hall, the sympathy of the town has also gone out at the loss of their youngest daughter, at the early and promising age of 21. She had borne with patience a long and trying ilness, which terminated with death on the day following that of Mr Lewis, and thus Rhosmaen-street was in gloom. Miss i bright and cheery face will be missed in J circle, and amongst the society of her y y R friends. But so '« He giveth his beloved sleep. Her remains were interred on Tuesday in the 1 ans Churchyard. The floral offerings were numerous and chaste. —
