TOWYN AND THE FUNERAL. Nowhere was there deeper sympathy felt with the late Mr Corbett's family than at Towyn, where everything that could be done to demonstrate heart- felt respect to his memory was done. All through the week flags were flying at public places at half. mast. On Friday evening representatives left for Droitwich to attend the funeral. Mr Henry Evans, Escuan, and Mr Meredith Jones, Caethle, repre- sented the Towyn Urban District Council, Mr Rees Jones, of Messrs Jones, Hughes and Edwards, contractors to the estate and the following tenants of the Ynysymaengwyn Estate Messrs J D Lati. mer, Corbett Arms Hotel; Robert Roberts, Rhydy- garnedd E Evans, Penowen Robert Pugh, Cyn- fal; J Jones, Hendy; Sylvanus Evans, butcher, and John Morgan, Ynys Mill. The above were accompanied by Mr Richard Gillart, Machynlleth, the local agent to the estate. At Droitwich station on Saturday morning they were met by Mr Hall, estate agent, and informed that arrangements for their reception had beenlmade at the Worcestershire Hotel. The reception given to the representatives of Towyn and the Ynysymaengwyn estate was quite in conformity with the respectful and gener. ous manner in which the late Mr Corbett always treated his tenants. They were told to inspect the Park, gardens, and the salt waters, and all that could possibly be done for them by the bereaved family and others was done. Dr Corbett and Mr Hall, the agent, expressed their thanks to them for attending the funeral from such a distance. A special carriage was engaged for the We: tenants, and by special request they remained at Droitwich over Sunday in order to attend CLurch in the morning. They returned to Towyn on Monday afternoon.
