MOLD. SALE OF STOCK. Mr. J. E. Davies held his weekly sale of stock at the Grosvenor Street Auction Mart, on Wednesday last. There was a keen com- petition for beef, and a decided improvement in the demand for calving cows and heifers. Bacon and porket pigs were very dear, and so p 11 were calves. Sheep, of which there was only a small supply, sold well. SAD DEATH. A melancholy death took place on Saturday afternoon, when Edward Savage, son of Mr. Savage, Collier's Arms, was called to eternal rest. Deceased, who was only 21 years of age, was a most unassuming young man, and made a large circle of friends. It is believed that in coming home for a week end from Chester, he contracted a cold, which ultimately resulted in rheumatic fever, which was the cause of death. The funeral took place at St. Mary's Parish Churchyard-the procession being a tremen- dously lengthy one. DEATH OF MR. ANDREW MATHER. Mr. Mather, wboei death occurred on Thurs- day, was a Lancashire man, and was born of humble parentage, in the year 1833, thus he was 64 years of age. He came into this neighbour- hood about 35 years ago, and commenced the business of a blacksmith. He then took a situa- tion at the Old Tyddyn Collieries, which he occupied for a considerable number of years. At that time, he became the licensee of the Pied Bull, Pentre and during his lengthened tenancy at that place, and the good times he enjoyed, it i8 reputed that he made some wealth. He retired, and accepted an appoint- ment from Messrs. Lassal and Sharman Caer- gwrle Brewery, as traveller, which he fulfilled for about 13 years. In the year 1879 he em- barked upon another new undertaking of larger dimension, namely, the erection of the Bowling Green Hotel. In this he was also successful. He was the oldest licensee holder in tbè district, and took a keen interest in matters pertaining to the 'trade.' He was very genial in com- pany, and was highly respected. The interment of Mr. Mathers remains took place at the Cemetery'on Monday afternoon 1 .30, and was very largely attended by tilt un people and others. The officiating clergy were the Revs. E. M. Roder ek (Vicar), and Stephen Jones, who perfoxmeu an impressive ceremony. [Other Mold News unavoidably held over]. For the first class PHOTOGRAPHS, go D. & A. HUGHES, Photographers, Mold.
