TREGARON. Monthly Market.—Very few signs of im- provement were evident in Tuesday's market, and business was on the whole rather dull, the pricefl for cattle remaining firm. A large stock was offered, but there was not a suffi- cient number of dealers to cope with a crowded market. A large number was sold, about 30 trucks being sent away by train. DEATH OF MR. PRESCOTT. Quite a gloom was cast throughout the whole district on Thursday when the sad news of the death of Mr George Benjamin Prescott, a gentle- man well-known in the locality, was announced. Deceased, who was in his 56th year, had been in failing health for some years. He came to Trc- garon about two years ago with a view of recuperat- ing it. and he stayed with a relative. Miss Jones, at Dinam Villa, Station-road. Soon after his advent into the town he began to show his sym- pathy in local affairs, giving a very practical sup- port to many causes. A great deal of improvement in the church is due to his generosity. He pre- sented tie splendid lamp which now remains to his memory in that sabred edifice. Strange to say, a remarkable incident occurred to the lamp on Sun- day evening, the day of his interment at Ormskirk. As the service at the church was proceeding a lorn) noise was heard, which rather startled the congre- gation, and upon examination it was found ftiat a portion of the lump bad broker. He made many aift" to the church and the National School, but ■ it was owing to the excellent support, he had sriven p :o the newly-organised Horse Show that his nau.e I a 1 become a "household word." He took an untiring interest in horses, and when the show was organised he presented the Society with a silver cup for competition for Welsh cobs. This gave an impetus to the Society, and the show at once became popular in the Union. He had fully intended carrying out several objects he had at heart during summer, among them being the reno- vation of the church; but, alas death intervened. Deceased hailed from Liveipool, and was a partner in the firm of Messrs Mullineux, Gardner, and Co., distillers, of that city. His wife, a Miss Lloyd, from Carnarvon, predeceased him some years ago, leaving behind a son, Mr G. Lloyd Prescott, who staved with hi.> laluer at Tregaron, and who has won the highest respect of the townspeople, especially the young people, for the assistance he gives each year to the Horse Show and entertain- ments. Deceased had several hobbies, his chief being photography and wood-carving. His remains were taken hy special train on Sunday morning to Ormshirk, near Liverpool, where the interment was made on the same day, the journey of 180 miles being accomplished in about six hours. Universal sympathy is extended to Mr Lloyd Prescott and relatives in their sad bereavement. (Other local news on inside pages.)
