The late Mr Evan Phillips.—On Wednesday, June 20th. there was laid to rest in the Clydach portion, of Llanelly Parish Church burial I grcnind the body of the late Mr Evan Phillips, of Tyn-r-Wern Farm, Llanelly. The deceased was a well known figure in the locality, and a very successful farmer. He was a native of Llanelly, had lived in the parish many years. and was liked and respected by all who knew him for his quiet, unassuming ways. He was a sidesman and a constant attendant at the Parish Church. The funeral was conducted by the Rector (Rev. E. A. T. Roberts), assisted by the curate (Rev. D. Williams). At the house, prior to starting, a short service was held. and the hymn, Lead, kindly Light," was sung while in the church the service was read by the Rector, the Curate read the lesson, and two hymns, Let saints on earth in concert sing" and For ever with the Lord." were sung, accom- panied by the organist (Miss A. Evaiis). The Rector read the committal service at the grave- side, when Jesu. Lover of my Soul" was effectively rendered by a large congregation. The church was full of mourners and friends, it being one of the largest funerals ever seen here. There were many wreaths, showing the esteem and respect deceased was held in by the countryside. Universal sympathy is felt for the widow and family of one son and four daughters. On Sunday during evensong the Rector ox- pressed, in a few well chosen words, the great loss the parish has sustained through the death I of such a well known agriculturist.
