DEATH OF THE REV. THOMAS PRICE, ABERDARE. It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death, at Rose Cottage, Aberdare. on Wednesday evening, of the above-named estimable divine. The deceased, who was in his 68th year, was born at Llanamrwch, Brecon, and served his apprenticeship as a painter, afterwards migrating to London, where be worked as a journeyman. It was whilst in tbe Metropolis ha decided upon entering the ministry, aud in 842 was admitted a student at Pontypool College, where he remained until 1845. In that year he was ordained by the late Dr. Thomas, and soon afterwards received a call" from the worshippers at Carmei Chapel, Aberdare, then known as "Old Penpouna." This invitation he accepted, and sper.t the re- mainder of his life in tbe serv ce of the people he tfren joined and their descendants. Fiudiug their numbers exceeding the accommodation at their service, it was decided to build a larger chapel, and in 1852 the commodious building known as Carmei Cuapel was erected. Under the guidance of the deceased the cause prospered in a singularly rapid manner, and upon the completion of his twentieth year of service Dr Price was presented with a handsome testimonial by tbe churches in the Aberdare Valley, which was followed at the end of his rortieth anniversary by another equally hearty vûkeo of the good feeling existing amongst his fi H;k. Taken in connection with the various friendly societies, the deceased may well be said to have had far more experience than even those whose duty it is to take part in such institutions He was a member of the Oddfellows, Ivorites, Alfreds, Foresters, Christian Union, Ministers' Provident, Swansea Royal, Dorcas Female Society, and was the first and only Welshman who had attained the proud distinction of Grand Master of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellow. Upou receiving the latter honour he was presented with a testimonial from th" Oddfellows of Wales, at a banquet presided over by Mr Richard Fotbergill, then M.P. for the borough. The testi- monial was the result of a subscription, which yielded a considerable amount, although limited to one penny per head. In 1869 Dr Price visited Ireland, and afterwards accompanied Mr McHenry to America on behalf of the Baptist Missionary Society, tlm result of their voyage being considerable pecuniary gain to the funds of the society. As a lecturer the deceased was well kuown and highly appreciated throughout the principality, bis chief subjects being My Trip to America," "The RUllhian War," Garibaldi," "The Bible," "John Muller," and" John Bunyan." The rev gentleman had been for many years chaplain of the St David's Lodge of Free- masons, and it had been intended to re-app tint him at the annual festival held on Thursday. Prior to the formation of school boards, he was a Ulanar of the Common School, an original member cf the I board of health, member cf the burial board and board of guardians, and, until his resignation two years ago, vice-chairman of the school board. He has been in failing health since 1886, but had this year resumed duty, and may be said to have realised hi", oft-expressed desire to H die in harness." Dr Price had the misfortune to lose his wife more than half a century ago, and since that time the household duties devolved upou his youngest sister, who ever attentive to his wants. He leaves "nly child, Miss Emily Price, with whom great sympathy is felt. It has been decided that the funeral, a public one, shaH take place on Tuesday, and it will probably be the largest ever known in the district.
