Gelli. The funeral of Mrs. Matthews, wife of Mr. W. J. Matthews, 19, Ystrad Terrace, took place on Saturday at Trealaw Ceme- tery, the Rev. T. D. Jones, Bodringallt, officiating. The chief mourners were:- Mr. W. J. Matthews (husband), Mrs. T. Morris (mother), Mr. T. C. Morris (bro- ther), Mrs. Trenfield (sister), Mr. and Mrs. T. Richards brother-in-law and sister), Misses Rachel Ann and Ceinwen Matthews (daughters). The sad event caused much surprise in the district. Although being in poor health for several months, it was anticipated that the deceased would have come round. Her loss will be felt greatly in the district where she resided, carry- ing on a newsagency business. She won a numerous host of friends by her genial and kind-hearted manner. The blow has been heavy, three children having been left motherless. The funeral was attended by a large number, including Councillor Thos. Thomas, Mr. W. Mason (Guardian), the Rev. P. Gelly, and Mr. Edward Davies (Ton). Mr. Jones, in his remarks at the graveside, dealt with the circumstances under the occasion in a somewhat striking manner, his remarks being less of an emotional character as is the custom on these wa,sions, taking more of that philo- sophic kind which takes away much of the sting of these events. From the remarks of one who was present, it was an address that sent us away optimistic and less pessimistic as one is wont to on these sad occasions.
