4 Ta Late Mr David Ivor Williams, Llwynpia. AN IMPRESSIVE FUNERAL. On Monday the mortal remains of the late Mr David Ivor Williams, Llwynypia, were conveyed amidst deep manifestations of sorrow, to their last resting place at, Lledrddu Cemetery. The deceased gentleman, who was 55 years of age, died at his residence, Dewinton field, on Wed- nesday after a brief illness. He was a brother of Councillor William Williams, and when a youth he worked underground as a collier. Here, however, his intellect and energy, had not suffici- ent scope, and he abandoned this occupation to embark in the less risky and more lucrative grocery trade. Being well imbued in excellent commercial qualities he rapidly made his new business an extensive one, and he soon became one of the leading grocers in the town. A deeply religious man, he was for many years a deacon in Bethania Welsh Calvinistie Church at Llwynypia, and by all who had the pleasure of knowing him he was held in the highest respect. The func-ral cortege was an exceedingly large and representative one, and rarely indeed has a. larger gathering of this nature been seen in this neighbourhood. Amongst those present were the following ministers: Revs J. Owen, M. H. Ellis, and E. Richards, Tonypandy; W. Morgan, Pant; W. Lewis, Cwmpark; H. Jonea, Cwmbach; T. Davies, Treorky; W. Jones,Ton; P. Gelly, W. L. Powell, E. Rees, Porth; E. T. Jones (E.), Llwynypia; Ebenezer Lloyd, and W. IA. Morgan. Letters expressing sympathy with the family and regretting their inability to at- tend the funeral were received from Rev J. M. Jones, Cardiff; Rev R. Morgan, Trewilliam; and the Rev T. E. Davies, Blaenclydach. The mourners present were Mrs Williams (widow), David Morgan, Myfanwy, and Edith (children), Mr and Mrs D. W. Jones, Cardiff; Councillor and Mrs W. Williams, Mr and Mrs Enoch Wil- liams, Mr and Mrs David Evans, bookseller; Mrs Andrew Powell and Mr B. M. Powell; whilst among the laymen were: Messrs John Rees, Gwalia House; David Evans, draper; D. J. Rees, grocer; and T. Jones, Paris House (deacons of Bethania Chapel); Prosser, Tre- orky; W. Jenkins, Radyr; Timothv, Ton; D. Richards, Penygraig; J. W. Jones, Tonypandy; D.

Lewis, J.P.; District Councillor David Williams, District Councillor John Thomas, J. Cox, J. Kinstley, Dr Morgan James Evans, Cambrian House; J. J. Evans, Ferndale; Mr Geo. Evans, printer.

Williams and Sons.
