DEMISE. Another link connecting Llandilo's past and present has been lost in the person of Mr David Thomas, of Bank Buildings, who expired on Satu) day. afternoon, at the ripe old age of 78. The deceased was at the time of his death the oldest native inhabitant of Llandilo, where he pursued the avocation of a tailor. He was very fond of literature, and possessed a poetical mind. Many years ago the departed composed an admirable poem to Dynevor Park, for which he earned genuine encomiums. Mr Thomas has gone over to the majority, leaving behind him an unstained reputation. A widow and five grown-up sons and daughters survive to mourn their loss. The remains were interred at the Parish Churchyard on Wednesday, when the funeral was largely and respectably attended. During the obsequies the shops had their shutters up and blinds were drawn in the houses along the route. PETTY SESSIONS.—These sessions were held on Saturday last before Messrs J. C.
