Ystrad ^onflda. We greatly regret having to record the death o. Miss Elizabeth Ann Prob' rt, the only sur- viving daughter of Mr and Mrs Probert, Bailey street. Ystrad. The sad event took place on Friday evening, the 17th inst., when death came at the early age of 16 years. Miss Pro- bert, although very young, was very well known, universally likel, and highly re- spected by all. She was not of a robust na- ture, but th,y news of her death came as a severe shock to her relatives and many friends. She was a bright young lady, a faithful mem- ber for the last three years of Hennon Welsh Baptist Church, Ten, and also a scholar at the Sunday School, where she figured highly in Scriptural examination, and also quickly earned the respect of her school-fellows and teachers alike. On Wednesday afternoon the funeral took place at Treorky Cemetery, when a very largtt concourse of people assembled to pay their last tribute of respect <o their departed young friend. The Rev W. E. Davies, HebrT. and Rev loan Thomas, Gelli, officiated,, whilo the hymns "Derby," "Tanycastell," "Lau sanne, and "Canton," which had been prin- ted for the occasion on leaflet-, were sung with much sympathetic feeling by ilici Hebron Choir who wore white rosettes as a tribute -if re- spect to their departed little friend. The Sunday School scholars were also n aiten.i- ance, together with a number of ilia Ton :¡nél Maindee Glee Society. Floral tributes were sent by the Sunday Schoalrs; Mrs Lewis, Court Farm, and Miss M. Rees, Ton,.

Edward Wil- liam, Willie, Thomas, Benjamin, krthu,, and b\»fml (brothers), Mr Dav'es (Ynys;O'nh). (uncle), Mrs J. Lewis, and Miss Lewis (aunt and cousin), Court Farm, near Cardiff; Mr and Mrs D.
