CYFARTHFA EIGHTY YEARS AGO.-A traveller has left on record in one of the old mechanics' magazines his impressions of Cyfarthfa 80 years ago, and the contrast is one of the greatest.

The annual sum expended for labour is £ 300,000; the number of horses he employs is 450; the number of steam engines, 8, each of 50 horse power, but going day and night, and doing the work of 12,000 horses. The iron stone annually used amounts to 90,000 tons, the lime to 40,000 tons, the coals to 200,000 tons, gun- powder to 80,000, candles 120,000 tons. A NEW WELSH K.C.—Mr. John Sankey, of Cardiff and London, who has just taken silk," is one of the best known legal luminaries in South Wales, and has for years attended the local county courts, especially in compensation cases. He was born at Evesham, in 1866, and was educated at the Cardiff Proprietary School, and subsequently went to Lancing College. He then obtained a classical scholarship at Jesus College, Oxford. Mr. Sankey, not only took a keen interest in rowing and became quite a distinguished oarsman, but he worked hard at his studies, and took his degree in 1889 with honours in the Final School of Modem History. He read in the chambers of Mr. (now Mr. Justice) Pickford, and was called to the Bar in 1892. He began to practise on the South Wales Circuit, and did well from the start. Mr. Sankey had the leading junior practice on the South Wales Circuit. He is an excellent French scholar, and has explored many of the rural districts of the North and West of France; indeed, he does not let many summers pass without a visit to Brittany, to which he is especially devoted. Mr. Sankey is unmarried. OBITUARY.—The death occurred on Thursday of Mr. David Davies, painter, Brecon-road, at the age of 52, at 1 Mount-terrace. The deceased had suffered considerably during the last three years, but bore up with great Christian fortitude to the last. On the day of his death he attended I the May-day show at the Park, be always having been a keen admirer of local enterprise. After returning home he partook of supper and was enjoying his after-supper pipe, when he suddenly passed away. The news of his death caused surprise amongst his numerous friends. De- ceased was a faithful member of Bethesda Congregational Church, and conducted the choir for over 25 years, having obtained the position after his brother, Mr. William Davies, now of Wilkeabarre, America, who is expected here in a fortnight's time. The operas, oratorios and cantatas rendered by the choirs, dating back to the eighties, bring back pleasant reminiscences. Many to-day in the musical world are on the top rung of the ladder through Mr. Davies' instrumentality and strict yet sound training. Mr. Davies will long be re- membered in Bethesda Church for his sincerity and faithfulness. His advice was at all times eagerly sought, and he was ever ready to do a kind action. He was an ardent member of the Merthyr Liberal Club, and also a member of the Sons of Temperance Lodge and Cyfarthfa Castle Lodge of Oddfellows. The funeral, which took place on Monday, at Tabor, Cefn, was one of the largest seen in the district for some time. The rendering of deceased's favourite hymns by. the choir, as the solemn cortege wended its way to his last resting-place, was most impressive. The service at the house* and graveside was conducted by the pastor, Rev. Jacob Jones. Mr, E. Lougher (Sons of Temperance), and Mr. Lazarus Lewis, Cyfarthfa Castle Lodge (Odd- fellows) read the burial service of their respective Orders. RESCUE HOME, MERTHYR TYDFIL.
