LLANBOIDY. DEATH: OV A WELSH MIXING EXGIMEEK AT PKETOKIA.—A l&rge number of people in South Wales will learn ith regret of the death of Mr John Lewis Philipps, mining engineer. Mr Philipps, was the son of Mr Thomas Philipps of Llanboidy,and brother of Mr B. L Philipps, solicitor, Cardiff. He learnt mining engineering as a pupil of Sir W. T. Lewis, and afterwards had a considtr- able connection of his own. Some five years ago, owing to uncertain health, Mr Philipps, by the advice of his medical attendant, went to South Africa, and settled in Johannesburg, and was in that town at the time of the raid that failed in December last. Mr Philipps was one of those who had nothing of which to complain on the part of Boer Republic, and in some letters he recently sent home he stoutly defended the Boers from the attacks very generally made upon them. But Mr Philipps would make friends anywhere, he was so genial, straightforward, and ttue. He had a large circle of friends in South Wales, and his death at so early an age will be much regretted The sad was received by cable on Saturday that Mr Pt.ilipps had passed away at Pretoaa on Thursday and was buried on Friday.
