WESLEYAN MINISTER'S DEATH. SUDDEN END AT OGMORE VALE. PROMISING LIFE CUT SHORT. Ogmore Vale was startled on Sunday morn- ing last when the sad news spread that Mr. Thomas Simpson, who was in charge of the Wesleyan. Church, had died overnight from pneumonia. The deceased was a native of Wholly, near Blackburn, and was 27 years of age. He was placed in charge of the Wesley Church about eight months ago, and in this very short space of time he had made himself exceedingly popular amongst all with whom he came into contact. He was an excellent preacher, and his sermons invariably pos- sessed a ring of sincerity. His activity had already brought forth a tangible increase in the attendance at Wesley Church, and his presence was always a decided acquisition; to any society in which he moved. He was ex- tremely popular amongst his fellow ministers, and their sympathy to the family was con- veyed by the Rev. Griffith Evans to the de- ceased's brother, Mr. Sam Wilson, B.Sc. The deceased was the son of a gentleman farmer at Wholly, and was educated princi- pally for the scholastic profession. He was sent to Edinburgh University at the eariy age of 13 years, and he admirably acquitted himself in his studies there. He pursued a course in the art of elocution, and won the gold medal for the best student of the year. StiH pursuing a science course, he left Edin- burgh for Owen's College. Manchester, where he proved himself to be a student of brilliant abilities, and passed his examinations in most subjects with honours. Having completed his training, he was appointed a tutor on the staff of Queen's College, Taunton. Whilst there he suddenly felt an inspiration to take up the ministry, and immediately resigned this more lucrative post. The deceased gentleman occupied the pul- pit on the previous Sunday and was in the best of health and spirits. On Tuesday he contracted an attack of influenza, which by Wednesday had' developed into acute pneu- monia. The best medical skill was unavail- ing. and during the late hours of Saturday night he succumbed. All that was mortal of the rev. gentleman was conveyed to Wholly by the 7 train on Tuesday morning. Not- withstanding the early hour, there was a large concourse of friends who had assem- bled to pay their last tributes of respect. Many sympathetic references to the death were made in the local pulpits on Sunday last..
