CARNO. LAMENTABLE DEATH.—Mr Richard Morgan, aged 29, only son of Mr and Mrs Morgan, Tybrith! died on Sunday morning, the 14th instant. He had been brought up as an electrical engineer, and had acquired great skill at his profession. While on duty at Nobel's Works, Stevenston, South of Scotland, on the 11th inst., an oil tank overflowed in a chamber underneath his depart- ment. The fumes ascended into his room, and he dropped down from suffocation. A passing friend, happening to see him in this prostrate position, dragged him out and had him removed to his lodgings. In spite of every effort from medical men and nurses to save his life he expired on the morning of the 13th. The news gave a terrible shock, not only to his own family, but also to his numerous friends at Carno, for he was a young man of such fine qualities and winning ways that everyone seemed tond of him. When at home for holidays he took particular interest in singing and was a special favourite with the choir. In several of our literary meetings he was the mov- ing spirit, and his services to the little congrega- tion at Soar will not soon be forgotten. He was none the less active and useful at Stevenston, where he was held in high esteem. At the earnest request and entreaties of his bosom friends at this place his mortal remains were laid to rest amongst them on the 16th. There is very great sympathy in all the country round with the bereaved parents and sisters of our young friend who was oalled away so suddenly and so early.
