Death of Mr James Gory, Penarth. We regret to announce the death of Mr James Cory, Penarth, who passed away on Thursday, the 2nd inat., at the comparatively early pge of 56. Mr Cory for the past eleven years held the position of caretaker and rranager of the Esplanade Baths, tha duties of which he discharged during that period with credit to himself and satisfaction to his employers and the patrons of the baths. Previous to his residence in Penarth Mr Cory bad held similar positions of trust in the baths at West- ward Ho and Ilfracombe, and had also occupied the position of boatswain on board the Havannah Indug- dustrial School Ship, Penarth-road. He was a naval pensioner, having formed one of the crew of the Desperate that sailed in search of Sir John Franklin in 1855, Later he became swimming and gunnery instructor in the Navy, and was also an experienced and skilful diver, once walking a mile under water in diving dress. Of late bis health had failed, and some six months ago cancer of the mouth and throat declared itself. The medical men in attendant—Messrs Graves and Robertson—spared no offoit in seeking to cope with the fell disease, while his devoted wife was with him constantly day and night; but, in spite of all, he passed away painlessly and quietly, leaving a widow ahd five children to mourn bis loss.
