The Burial of Dr Edward Jones, J.P. Amid manifestations of the deepest sorrow, the mortal remains of the late Dr. Edward Jones, J.P., Dolgelley, were laidin their last resting place on Friday. Bitterly cold weather, an overcast sky, with threatening clouds, added perceptibly to the gloom which covered the town as in a pall during the hours of the forenoon. Business was entirely suspended after twelve o'clock, and on all sides the town bore visible signs of its grief at the loss of so great and respected a citizen. The morning trains also brought in their loads of human freight, large contingents arriving from Blaenau Festiniog. Bala, Barmouth, Portmadoc, Aberystwyth, and Machyn- lleth and by the hour fixed for the funeral the rong must have numbered several thousands. At 1 o'clock a private service was conducted by the Rev. John Owen, Mold, at the deceased's residence. At 1.30 the funeral cortege was formed in Springfield-street, and proceeded four abreast to Salem Chapel in the following order:— Medical men.
