THE PONTYPOOL ROAD RAILWAY CRICKET CLUB. —A general meeting of the members of this club was held at the offices of the Great Western Rail- way Co. on Monday evening last (Mr W. W. Baker in the chair), for the purpose of passing the report and accounts of the club for the past season. It appeared that the present committee took office with a balance against the treasurer of about £ 2, added to which have been the current expenses, including X8 for the field; and, notwithstanding the wet weather, which adversely affected the number of playing members, the treasurer report- ed that the receipts balanced the expenditure. This favourable report has been principally due to the kindness of those gentlemen who came forward with donations. On the motion of the chairman, seconded by Mr B. Edwards, a cordial vote of thanks was passed to Mr E. Parry, the captain, and Mr G. F. Feather, the hon. secretary, for the great interest they have taken in the club during the past season. The meeting was closed by thanking the chairman for his services in connec- tion with the club, which was proposed by Mr Parry, and seconded by Mr J. Walters. SUDDEN DEATH AND FUNERAL OF A PONTYPOOL MAN.—The remains of Thomas Stacey, mason (re- cently in the employment of the Pontypool Local Board), one of the workmen at the Monastery, Cowfold (Sussex), and who was found dead in his bed on Thursday morning, the 13th inst., were in- terred in Cowfold churchyard on the following Sunday afternoon, after the service. The body w^ removed from No. 11 hut, Grovelands, at 3.30, in one of the works vans, drawn by two black horses. The procession was headed by all the principal foremen that could attend, including Mr Wheeler, the manager, Mr Soul, Masters Cropley, Hobday, Plumridge, and Gorton. Four drivers walked on each side of the horses, and about 200 of the work- men brought up the rear, following three abreast. The procession kept in good order throughout. The Rev. Mr Browell met the corpse at the gates, and commenced reading the Burial Service, "I am the resurrection and the life," &c., in a very im- pressive and audible manner, every man reveren- tially and respectfully uncovering his head the whole distance into the church, and a pin might have been heard to have dropped during the por- tion of the service in the sacred edifice. All fol- lowed out in the same respectful manner, and many men at the grave were heard to join in the responses. At the conclusion all quietly left and dispersed to their homes. A collection, amounting to nearly .£11, had been made on the Saturday for the widow and child. Much credit seemed to be due to Mr Wheeler and the other foremen for the very quiet and orderly manner in which the pro- ceedings were carried out.
