Attempted Suicide at-Traherbart




Treorchy. An accident occurred to a young man named David Goodwin Thomas (18), residing at 19, Prospect Place, Treorchy, whilst following his employment at the Abergorchy Colliery (Messrs. Burnyeat, Brown and Cb.) as a collier on Tuesday afternoon. He was cutting at the coal, when a stone fell from the roof and caught him on the forehead, causing a very nasty injury. He was conveyed on a stretcher to his lodgings. He had only come up from Carmarthenshire recently, and started work underground a fortnight ago. -+-+- The headquarters of the Treorchy Foot- ball Club for the coming season will be at the Lion Hotel. The genial landlord, Mr. Francis, has gone to great expense in fit- ting up a commodious lavatory, with a shower bath attached, for the convenience of the players, and they will also have every comfort in the dressing room. -+-+- The pulpit at the Tabernacle (English Wesleyan) Chapel on Sunday last was occu- pied by Mr. Tom James, Clydach Vale, who delivered excellent sermons. At the evening service, a contralto solo was ren- dered by Miss Flossie Horton, entitled Into Thy Hands," the last words of the late Sir Henry Irving. Mr. W. H. Bevan accompanied. With regret we chronicle the death of a very old and highly respected inhabitant of Treorchy, Mr. Daniel Richard, 39, Car- diff Street, who passed away on Thursday morning last, after a long and painful illness. The deceased was a victim of con- sumution, and the breaking of a blood- vessel accelerated his death. The deceased, who was in his 55th year, was one of the most faithful members of St. Tyfodwg Welsh Church, where his demise will be most keenly felt. When the deceased was working underground, he would never start work until he took part in prayer. The funeral of deceased took place on Thursday afternoon, the interment taking place at the Treorchy Cemetery. A large number of friends attended to show their last respects to the departed. The Rev. Thomas Tissington, vicar of St. George's Church, Cwmparc, officiated. A floral tribute was placed on the coffin from M. Thomas, Penywern, Aberystwyth. A num- ber of mourners followed the deceased to his last resting place. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. Jonah Lewis. We also regret to announce the death of Mrs. Davies, Bute Street, Treorchy, which took place on Wednesday morning last, after a lingering illness. Deceased, who was highly respected and esteemed in the locality, leaves five children (one of whom is Mr. Joe Davies, the well-known Treorchy and Penygraig footballer) to mourn her loss. The funeral of the deceased took place on Saturday, the interment being at Taibach Cemetery, Port Talbot. A number of friends jour- neyed with the deceased to pay their last respects. The Rev. T. Davies, Bethlehem, Treorchy, officiated at the house.
