YNYSHIR IN MOURNING. Four Fatalities in a Week. Ynyshir, during the past week, has been hushed into a; state of solemn quietude. The grim, icy hand of death in its cruel work his wrought desolation to many families, and friends and all alike have joined to mourn the loss by a premature death of not a few of our most respected neighbours. Bank Holiday came, and each and every one was bent on enjoying him- self; but ere the shades of night had fallen younw Joseph Kenvin, who was drowned whilst bathing at Barry, had joined the great majority. Since the sad event a strict search was instituted for the body, and on Saturday all that remained of the poor unfortunate young man, once a brilliant ornament in the household, was washed ashore a few miles beyond the place where the sad accident occurred. Words cannot adequate- ly describe the pain through which the family have passed during this period. The funeral took place on Tuesday at the Lledrddu Cemetery and was largely attended. Following closely in the wake of this unfortunate affair, a double fatality occurred at the Standard Colliery on Wednesday morning. It appears that whilst a married man named John Jones and his son Rees were engaged in their stall a large quan- tity of clod fell, killing the poor boy on the spot. The father was immediately conveyed to the surface, where every medical aid was prompt- ly administered, but at eight o'clock on the same evening the injuries proved fatal. The deceased man, who had resided ai Ynyshir for many years, was a native of Vochriw. He was a most diligent member of the Saron Congrega- tional Chape., and was much respected in the neighbourhood. The funeral of both father and son was held on Saturday at the Llanwonno Cemetery, the service at the residence being conducted by the Rev E. C. Davies. The Standard Colliery suspended operations for the day, and no less than four thousand persons attended to pay their last tribute of respect. On Friday evening yet another death resulted through injuries received at the National Col- liery, Wattstown. A young man named David Davies, of South street, Ynyshir, was engaged in his stall on the previous Wilt's shift when a piece of coal fell, striking him on the loins. Without any assistance whatever he managed to proceed to the bottom of the shaft, and, reaching the surface, walked home with the assistance of two of his fellow-workmen.Through out Friday he lav in great pain, and expired about seven o'clock. The deceased was a pro- minent Band of Hope conductor, and was a young man who had a bright and promising future. He was an ardent supporter of the Eisteddfod, and on several occasions had led choirs to victory. The funeral took place on Tuesday, at the Llanwonno Cemetery, a huge concourse following the remains to- their resting place. The Rev E. C. Davies, Savon Congrega- tional Chapel, of which the deceased was a member, officiated. We sincerely desire to ex- tend our sympathy to each of the sorrowing relatives.
