SUDDEN DEATH OF THE LATE STATIONMASTER. On Monday morning last, the city was thrown into great consternation when the news spread that Mr. William Jones, the late stationmaster of this city, had died very suddenly the pre- vious night, at his residence; in Mount Road. He was fJ6 years of age, and enjoyed good health during last Sunday. He went to bed as lively as ever, but soon felt ill. Medical aid was summoned, but was of no avail, the cause 1 of death being heart disease. Deceased had held the post of stationmaster for a great num- ber of years, and only resigned about twelve months ago, when a presentation of over a £100 was made bo him, got by public subscrip- tion. He was a staunch Catholic, and his loss will be keenly felt by that body. The funeral took place on Wednesday morning last, at the St. Asaph, Cemetery, at ten o'clock. Requiem Mass was held at the Catholic Church at nine o'clock, and performed by Father Lucas. The chapel was crowded, and the funeral then proceeded towards the cemetery, headed by members of the Foresters Friendly Society, of which lodge the deceased was a member. The interment was performed ac- cording to the rites of the Roman Catholic Church, the Rev. Father Lucas officiating.
