SUDDEN DEATH OF MR. JONES, OF BLAENOS, LLANDOVERY. On Friday evening last Mr John Jones, of Blaenos, near Llandovery. died very suddenly whilst walking in a field at Blaenos. The deceased gentleman was about 73 years of age, and had been and still was under Drs. Thomas and Lewis' treat- ment. He had lately been noticed to have aged very considerably, but no serious complaint was made by him, as he was up to the day of his death in the habit of walking into Llandovery town and back, a distance of about a. mile and a half both ways. On Friday last he walked into town as usual, and returned about two p.m. It appears that shortly after he returned, home he left the house aud went to a field adjoining to see the men ploughing, and whilst stooping to pick up something he fell down in a tit. He was picked up, and the carriage was immediately obtained to convey the deceased gentleman to the house. In the meantime medical aid was sent for, but before the arrival of Dr. Thomas the deceased had expired, the cause of death being heart disease. Mr Jones represented Carmarthenshire in the Conservative interest from 1874 to 1880. He had been high sheriff of the county, and was. at the time of his death, deputy- lieutenant of the county, an alderman of the borough of Llandovery, charman of the Llandovery Bench of magistrates, and a member of the Llan- dovery Board of Guardians and Carmarthenshire County Roads Board. The deceased was a member of the well-known banking firm of David Jones and Co. He was greatly respected by all who knew him, and his loss will be felt throughout the neighbourhood.
