Llwynypia It is our sad duty this w&ek to chronicle the death and burial of Master Thomas Coleman. aged 17 years, who unfortunately met with such an untimely death whilst f'llowi:ig his occupy tion as miner in the Llwynypia Colliery on Thursday evening last, i:!ou.Á rtsiueU wiLh :;I: parents in Partridge Terrace. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Tuesday afternoon. The mourning cortege presented a most pathetic sight, being headed by the deceased's young friends to the number of 21, each wearing a white rosette as a token of their sympathy for their departed comrade. The coffin was covered with beautiful wreat p sent by Mrs Evan Parry, Mrs Vater, and the young man's personal friends. The immediate mourners were as follows :-Mr and Mrs Knight (father and mother), Messrs William James, Cyrus, and Elli Idrls Coleman (brothers), Master Wallace Knight (brother). Mioses Sarah and and Beatrice Coleman (sistersi, Mr and Mrs William Davies (grandparents), Mr James Coleman (grandfather), Mr and Mrs W. Davies (uncle and aunt), Mr and Mrs G. Davies, Mr and Mrs A. Davies, Mr and Mrs A. J. Davies, Mr Giles Coleman, Mr and Mrs John Yates, Mr and Mrs Tom Davies, Messrs John Yates (junior) and Elias Davies, Mrs Coleman, Mr and Mrs Speed and Mr James Coleman. The choir of Miskin Road Chapel was in attendance, and sang, under the conductorship of Mr J. W. Mills, the hymns "Lead Kindly Light," "Aberystwith" and Babel" with much feeling en route to Treorky Cemetery, where the interment took place. Mr Thomas James, Llwynypia, officiated both at the house and graveside. Much sympathy is felt for the family in their sad bereavement. Under the auspices of Salem Welsh Congre- gational Church, Llwynypia, a highly interesting lecture was delivered by tho Rev. J. Pethian Davies, Treherbert, on family life in Canaan. Several of our Llwynypia and l'realaw friends were dressed in Eastern raiment. Models and domestic utensils, and agricultural implements plough mills, spinning wheels, etc., were shown. The most interesting part of the lecture, how- ever, was in all probability, the marriage ceremony after the manner of the East, which was graciously gone through by two of our Trealaw friends. Eastern life was also shown in all its aspects. Mr Davies having spent some time in the country, his lecture therefore afforded an excellent opportunity of under- standing particular parts of the Bible. Mr Tom John, Llwynypia, presided over a crowded audience. The proceeds were devoted towards the Church funds.
