LLANGURIG. FUNERAL OF LIEUT.-COL. LLOYD-VERNEY. The mortal remains of the late Lieut.-Col. Lloyd- Yerney, Clochfaen, were on Tuesday afternoon, committed to their last resting-place in the family vault, Llanguvig Churchyard, amid tokens of deep respect and esteem. Having resided in the neigh- bourhood for many years, 11 it was but natural that the deceased gentleman should be put to rest in the God's Acre" of this little mountain village, the scene of countless generous actions, and the abode of so many who had in the past, benefitted by the kindness, and consideration of one who will be greatly missed both in his public and private capa- city. In the morning, overhanging clouds threat- ened rain, which fell slightly, the weather clearing up later in the day. It was shortly after half past four o'clock, when the solemn cortege arrived at the Parish Church, from Clochfaen, in the following order: general public which included Rev R. H. Jones, Messrs. J. Smout, J.P., J. G. Bowen, J. Ingram, E. Hamer, R. Ingram, R. Evans, Llwyn- hyddod; E. Mills, Grant, Dr. J. V. Owen, H. L. Davies, E. Edwards, J. R. Pryse, junr., J. R. Row- botham, E.

At the Church gate, the mournful procession was received by the Vicar, (Rev T. H. Hughes), Rev W. D. Roberts (Free- mason), Llanidloes, and the choir of the Llanidloes Parish Church. The coffin, which was covered by the Union Jack, was then removed from the hearse, and the wreaths having been placed upon it, it was slowly borne down the pathway towards the Church, the choii chanting I am the Resurrection and the Life." Having arrived at the sacred edifice, the solemn procession entered therein to the strains of 0 rest in the Lord," beautifully rendered on the organ by Miss Marshall, Llanidloes. Leaflets had been distributed throughout the Church, bear- ing on the front page, the following inscription :— George Hope Lloyd-Verney, born March 5th, 1842, died June 14th, 1896. Laid to rest in Llan- gurig Churchyard, on Tuesday, June 23rd, 1896.

Amen.'
