~~WREXHAM. COLLIERY FATALITY. — The East Denbigh- shire Coroner (Mr. W. Wynn Evans), on Tuesday afternoon, held an inquiry at the County Hall, Wrexham, respecting the death of Timothy Parsonage, a collier, aged 31. The deceased had been employed at the Brynmally Colliery, and was working down the pit on Thursday morning last. He removed a prop; from the roof that was in his way, and loosened a large stone, which fell upon him, and so badly injured him that he died from a. fractured and dislocated spine shortly afterwards.—John Roberts, a fireman, employed at the colliery, who examined the place shortly before the accident, said he did not think the stone would have fallen if the prop had been left up.—The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death.' THE LATE DR. EDWARD DAVIES.—On Tues- day afternoon, amid many manifestations of regret, the mortal remains of the late Dr. Edward Davies, J.P., who died suddenly on Friday, were laid to rest in Wrexham Cemetery. The mourners were numerous, and included the deceased gentleman's fellow-justices on both county and borough benches, his local pro- fessional brethren, the Mayor (Mr. Philip Yorke), aldermen and councillors of the borough, the Corporation officials, police, and railway servants at the Great Western Railway Station. The wreaths were so numerous that most of them had to be conveyed in a separate carriage. The line of route was crowded on either side, while a number of shops were partially closed during the afternoon. The cortege, which was a lengthy one, first went to the parish church, where the usual service was gone through by the vicar (the Rev. Canon W. H. Fletcher) and the Rev. LI. Wynne Jones. The hymns Now the labourer's task is o'er' and 'Peace, perfect peace' were sung, and as the mourners filed down the aisle and out of the sacred fane, the impressive ceremony was com- cluded by the playing on the organ of the 'Dead March' in Saul. The Vicar officiated at the graveside. The following were the chief mourners:—Dr. J. E. H. Davies and Mr. W. L. Cameron Davies, sons Miss Davies and Miss Gwendoline Davies, daughters: Dr. William Davies (Southport), brother; Mrs. Â. A. Corte, sister; Dr. A. A. Corte (Blackburn), brother-in- law; Mr. W. C. Bull (Oswestry), brother-in- law Miss F E. Corte, niece; and Messrs. T. E. Davies, Jonathan Davies, and LI. E. Davies, nephews.
