Unfortunately, the Se-aPse with which Colonel Harrison was 8g1Ze<^ 011 Sunday week ended fatally about si^?Q on Saturday evening. It is just a year ago Colonel Harrison had ar. apoplectic seizure in CQ6 where he was at th<? time engaged in °t^eCt'°n w,t'i ^s duties as colonel in command th P Montgomeryshire Militia. His condition at id bme was one of extreme gravity, but with the H pf diligont medical attendance and skilful thtSlDr ',e partially recovered from the effects of tlj6 Se'zurcS and was able to spend the winter on Continent. While abroad he had another C Itek, less severe in character. He returned to p^r^°Wel in April, aud took a deep interest in the (jj Nations which were being made for the series of the coming-of-age of his eldest Hugh Harrison. Since his seizure last IItt k Colonel Harrison has been constantly he 6nded by Dr Hawksworth and specialists have ^at" Ca"ed ini t>ut the gravity of the case was aHd ^7 all. on Friday there remained no hope, tjj^ °n Saturday evening the patient succumbed in 0 Presence of his wife and family, with whom we i% Il0b say, the deepest svmpathy is felt in an C £ on rendered all the keener by contrast with *"ejoicings so recently held in connection with w!|ugh Harrison's majority. Ato hen the news was received in Welshpool and ^g^Qtnery, the flags on all the public buildings lowered half-mast, the minute bell at the \¡liehes tolled, and many of the townspeople drew Of and put up shutters. In fact the inhabitants int places were deeply moved by the sad Q 'IGENCE. 0Nel Harrison, who was born Septembei 27th, '•,YAS THE eldest and only surviving son of the V^»' -ROBERT John Harrison, M.A., of Caerhowel, °f Forden, by his marriage in 1841 with 14" beth, second daughter and co-heiress of the IK -^EVEREUX Glynne Mytton, Rector of Llan- FTO11- The family of Harrison originally cime OF Q WILTSHIRE.

In Montgomery I parish Colonel Harrison took an active interest in the management of the Schools and other parochial matters, and lie. was Chairman of the Church Restoration Committee. God had taken him awav in the very prime of life, and though it was hard to .say it, they mast say, "Thy will be done." They could not ask why He took way one in the vigour of life awl health, and left others ailing and aged to oil. Thev were all children of one Father, and would sympathise with and feel for those who were now passing through the furnace of sorrow and bereavement. The final hymn was, Without Me ye can do nothing," with the touching lines of the last verse- I could not do without Thee, For years are fleeting fast, And soon in solemn loneliness, The river must be passed But, Thou wilt never leave me, Aud though the waves roll High, I know Thou wilt be necr me, And tf-hisiper, It is I." As the congregation passed out of the church, Mr Tipping, the organist, played the Dead March from Saul. The rewa of Col Harrison's death was received at Llanfair with universal sorrow. The deceased gentleman was always much beloved at Llanfair and recent events proved that the friendship existing between him and the inhabitants of Llan- fair was stronger than ever. The following letter, in his own handwriting, to the honorary secretary, in reply to a letter of thanks from the County School Managers, dated Caerhowel, May 29, 1896, will show how attached he was to Llanfair:—" Dear Sir,I must thank you very much indeed for the kind expression of thanks conveyed in your letter. I have had so many acts of kindness from my friends at Llanfair that it is a real pleasure to be able to make any small return to them.—Yours faithfully, R. J. HARRISON."—The letter is a picture of the unostentatious character of the gallant gentlemen. He attached some value to what all the Llanfair people look upon as a noble deed. Very great sympathy is felt here with Mrs Harrison, Mr Hugh Harrison, and the rest of the family. THE FUNERAL. The remains of the late Colonel Harrison were laid in their last resting place in Forden Church- yard on Wednesday amid general manifestations of widespread sympathy and affection. The solem- nity of the occasion was marked by a temporary suspension of business in Montgomery, and the people flocked to Forden village from the district around to pay their last tribute of respect. The late colonel was accorded a military funeral in which the officers and men of the 4th Batt. South Wales Borderers participated. The weather con- trasted favourably with that of the previous day. Nature herself at first appearing downcast, yet sunshine, typical of re-kindled spirit, was behind the sullen skies. Presently the welcome rays brightened into cobalt the grey gloomy firmanent, and as noon approached the day became one of gloriously golden sunshine. Within the little God's acre of Forden Church was posted the firing party of the 4th Batt. S. W. B. To the last resting place of him whom they loved and whose memory they cherished, they mourn- fully tramped, their arms reversed, to pay usual homage in traditional military fashion to their late chief at the solemn moment of committal. The officers on duty were Colonel Isherwood, Captains Tolcher, Lomax, Sladen, Gent! Colville, and Gaisford, Lieutenants Hastings, Tudor, Knowles and Hopwood. As the time drew near when the solemn cortcge was expected to arrive at the church there was an air of suppressed excitement about the throng, but there was not one incident in the conduct of the onlookers to mar the dignity and pathos of the deeply-affecting scene. For, be it remembered, the inhabitants of Montgomery and district, cown to the humblest amongst them, knew and loved the gallant Colonel who presided, it seems but yester- day, with great ecldt at the coming-of-age rejoicings of his son exactly three weeks previously. Scarcely one among them was there to whom the Colonel had not made himself acquainted, and in whom he had not at some time or another evinced a friendly and kindly interest, and so now that the shadow of death had crept into their midst and robbed them of one for whom they entertained the warmest feelings of regard, the good folk who dwell within sight, almost, of Caerhowel, came out in force to show, not alone by their presence, but by their respectful and reverential demeanour, how they feel for the bereaved in the loss that has fallen upon them. Twelve o'clock having struck the soldiers, acom- panied by a detachment of officers from the garrison, who arrived by special train from Brecon and detrained at Montgomery took up their position outside Caerhowel and the escort and firing party nnder the command of Colonel Isherwood to enact their important share in the coming ceremonial. A fewlminutes elapsed and eight colonr-sergeants were seen to emerge from the honse bearing the oak coffin of Colonel Harrison. Slowly and reverently these men carried their sad burden and placed it in the glass panelled hearse. The coffin was draped with the Union Jack and over it had been deposited the handsome floral cross from the distressed widow and the wreaths from the late colonel's sorrowing children and sister, together with the helmet which he wore as colonel of his regiment, his sword, and belt. It was an affecting moment, and the final touch of solemnity and pathos was impar- ted to the scene when the hearse moved off at a slow pace to the accompaniment of the band and muffled drums, Lieutenant Hugh Harrison, attired in his uniform, following on foot behind his father's charger, with boots in tie stirrups reversed, whilst the other chief mourners followed in closed carriages as follows Mrs Harrison, Miss Harrison, and Mr Pryce Harrison. Mr and Mrs Wharton Mr E. T. D. Harrison, and Mr G. D. Harrison The Earl of Powis, General Hon. and Mrs Herbert, the Hon Robert Herbert Major Herbert, and Mr F. Montgomery Colonel Montgomery, Miss Montgomery, and Air George Montgomery „ Captain D. H. Mytton, Mr R. E. Jones (Cefn Bryntalch), and Mr ft. J. Edmunds (Edderton, Forden) Major Corbett-Winder, Mr R. W. Williams-Wynn, and Sir Thomas Meyrick Mr Forbes, Dr Hawksworth, and Mr E. H. Morri Mr Hawker and Captain O. H. Johnes The household servants. Closed carriages of Mr Beck, Mr J. M. L oy and others. Nothing could have been more profoundly im- pressive than the music played by the military band as the cortege slowly wended its way to the Church, past the Union Workhouse, the blinds of which were drawn, and where the Colonel had for many years presided with much ability over the deliberations of the Board of Guardians. As the mournful procession neared the Church all heads were uncovered as the carriage on which reposed '(3 the oaken casket threaded its way between the military lines, and thus did the bystanders remain until the imposing cortege was completely out of sight. It was here that the procession was joined by the Mayor (Mr E. R. James), and Corpora- tion of Montgomery, the tenantry on the Caer- howel and Glyn estates, the representatives of the various associations with which Colonel Harrison was connected, the general public and the work- men on the estate. Among them we noticed the following Revs E A Fishbourne, J Roberts, Fron Martin, Berriew; Pughe Morgan, Llandyssil; Messrs Archibald Graham, T W Davies, Welshpool Wm Jones, Montgomery; 'J Withers, Vaughan, Morris Davies, Lewis Griffiths, Clipston, R Jones, Compton House; Stephen Williams, C T P Davies, Thomas Alder, John Edwards, Ed Williams, J.

During the service in the little fan the firing partv, about 60 in number, stood with arms re- versed north of the churchyard. At tho solemn moment following the committal the soldiers fired a volley, and then was heard once more the roll of muffled drums. Yet another pause and then through the still air was heard the sound of more firing. One more sainte- the third and last—resounded, and then the drums, now un- mufiied, sounded a roll long sustained, which pro- claimed that the sad rites had drawn to a close, and that Co!onel Harrison had been laid to his rest. IN THE CHURCH. The church had been striidngly decorated, and in the presence of Nature so radiant, the solemn strains of Chopin's Funeral March struck the ear as a paradox, vet it is the contrast between Life and Death. The choir presently entered, chanting the opening services of the Burial Service, and once again were"heard the words 1 am the Resurrection and the Life,"—a sentiment which from time im- memorial has been the mourners' last solace. Graduallv the procession moved up the aisle, headed bv Rev J. E. Vize (Vicar of Forden), Rev Prebendarv Burd (Vicar of Chirbury), Rev D. Grinialdi Davis (Vicar of Welshpoo]), and Rev E. W. Brown (Rector of Montgomery). Following the bier came the chief mourners in the order already described, who took up their places in the front, pews to the right of the coffin. The prevailing hue was black, and the officers in their scarlet coats, gave a variation of colour on the north side of the chancel. While the congregation were taking up their places, the choir impressively sang Peace, perfect, peace," after which the congrega- tion sang the 39. h and 90th Psalms. Then Rev E. W. Brown recited the Lesson, from Corinthians. The Rector read the noble passages in a clear, resonant voice full of feeling, and in atone befitting the belief in the final triumph of Life over Death. The hymn Now the labourer's task is o'er," having been sung, the procession was reformed, and slowly moved to the moss-lined grave situate on the north side of the burial ground. Here Rev Prebendary Burd read the pre-committal sentences which com- mence with the words Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery," the parting words Earth to earth, ashes to ashes," being pronounced by the Vicar of Forden. Rev Grimaldi Dav;s gave the closing prayers and pronounced the Benediction, which closed the im- pressive service, after which the mourners one by one filed round the open grave and took a last look. And so was laid to rest one who died after render- ing valuable service to his country. Nothing could have been more beautiful than the floral tributes that surrounded Colonel Harri- son's coffin; nothing more touching than some of the inscriptions. First was a cross covering the length of the coffin bearing the words In h ten- derest affection from his wife." Then came a wreath from his three loving children," and a cross, In loving memory, from Mr and Mrs H. A. Wharton; "They rest from their labours." The wreath from Miss B. A. Mytton, Welshpool, was accompanied with the words, A token of love and regard." Exquisite wreaths were sent by the Ear.L and Countess of Powis; Colonel and Mrs Montgomery, IN affectionate remembrance From his life-long friends, Isabel M. Welch and J. M. E. Lloyd;" Mr and Mrs S.

The coffin-plate was in- scribed Robert John Harrison, Colonel 4th Bat- talion South Wales Borderers, born 27th September, 1852, died 6th June, 1896, aged 43 years." The undertaker was Mr. W. Morris, of Welshpool; and the coffin was made by Mr. T. H. Evans, of Mont- gomery.
