-m Death of IUr E. W. ElliS, Staffordshire Rouse. It is with regret that we have to an. nounce the death of Mr Ellis William Ellis, Staffordshire House, which took place at his residence last Sunday evening, at the age of 65 years. Mr Ellis bad been ailing for some time, but tho end came rather suddenly, as stated. Mr Ellis was a highly es- teemed townsman, and greatly respected by all who came in contact with him, and was a member of an old Barmouth family. He will be much missed, especially in Church circles, being a sound and conscious churchman, and at all times a gallant defender of the Church. Mr Ellis was appointed Churchwarden of St David's Church 15 years ago, and diligently carried out his duties to satisfaction of all--a proof of which was his re-election year after year. In the Sunday School, where he took an intelligent interest, he will be greatly missed as he had been superin- tendent and teacher for the last 25 years, and no one will miss him more than the children of St David's. Mr Ellis was one of the founders and treasurer of the Rural Deanery of Ardudwy Church and Sunday Schools' Annual Festival, and was elected years ago to be the representative of the parish at the Annual Diocesan Con- ference, which he regularly attended. In politics Mr Ellis was a Conservative, but took no active part in any circle outside his dear Church, which he loved so well, and when the end same he passed away to the Glorified Church above, to the sound of the St David's .Church bell calling the faithful to Evensong. He will be missed and mourned by his loving niece, Mrs E. G. Owen, who nursed him patiently to the end, and by a large number of friends. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family in their great sorrow. The funeral, which was private, took- place at Llanaber Churchyard, in which be took a great interest, being one of the committee who look after and beautify God's Acre, yesterday (Wednesday) when the Revs. R. Lloyd Roberts, M.A., R.D., R. Ward, B.A., T. Lloyd Jones, B.A., and W. J. Williams, B.A., vicar of Bryncoedifor, officiated. The undertakers were Messrs Evans and Wiiliams, Graigfaeh.

CORRESPONDENCE. I We do not hold ourselves responsible for thp opinions of our correspondents. To the Editor. Sir,—I am told on good authority that ab,iut- fifty Belgian refugees children at- tend the Council School at Barmoutb. Scioe of the young women teachers who had classes of over 30 under their charge pi l'or to the advent of these additional nnmber cannot reasonably be expected to do justice to our own children or the lis lie strangers. In the face of this serious problem, I have not heard that our Local Managers are moving in the matter. Why not have a room for these children and engage one or two of the best educated Belgians in the town to take charge of them. Surely a grave responsibility rests upon our School Managers. I am, AGGRIEVED PARENT. I
