E:.i..f! -w. Che rate nlrs. Roberts, 4, EPWOrtb Cer. The death occurred on Saturday, the 17th inst., after a protracted illness, of Mrs Roberts, the widow of the late Mr William Roberts, of 4, Epworth Terrace, at the age of 65. Mrs Roberts was well known locally, being a native of this town, and a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Ellis Morris, of Tanyfedw. She was greatly respected by all who knew her, and will be sadly missed at the Park Road C.M. Chapel, where she was a faithful mem- ber. The deceased bad experienced great and sore troubles in the course of her life. Her sorest trial was the loss of her only daughter, 11 years ago, at the early age of 24. Her husband, also, had been ailing for a considerable time pre- vious to his decease. But in the face of all her disappointments and sorrows, Mrs Roberts bore herself with Christian fortitude, her heart and sou! being sus- tained by the peace which passeth all understanding." The internment took place on the fol- lowing Wednesday, the 21st, at Llanaber. The chief mourners were :—Messrs. J. W. anc 0. F. Roberts (sons) Messrs. John, Francis, Robert and Ellis Morris (brothers); Mrs Evans, Tygwyn Cottage, and Mrs Tank, Victoria Hotel (sisters) Miss Olwen Roberts (grand daughter). At the house the service was conducted by the Revs. E. Afonwy Williams arid J. Gwynoro Davies whilst the Revs. E. Vaughan Humphreys and D. Davies (Harlech) officiated at the graveside. General sympathy prevails with the family in their bereavement, and es- pecially with Mr O. F. Roberts, whose devotedness to his mother was so great. The duties of undertakers were carried out by Messrs. Evans and Williams.

THE DESTROYERS WAIT! We cull the following from the London Daily Express :—■ This is what Jack thinks of the Ger- man navy, and there is'nt one of his comrades who does'nt think the same. We congratulate Able Se.aman Dick Powell (son of Mr and Mrs Powell, Llan- aber) of ELM, S. destroyer Maori, for the following :— „ "Plunging, tossing,and heaving, through a smashing, raging sea, Black and grim as the jaws of death Save for the funnel's flaming breath, The Destroyers wait! Some of our boys are sleeping, the others are manning our guns, But we are always watching and waiting for the Kaiser-Pirate's Huns. "Our foe lie locked in their harbours, with a mine-strewn sea for a gate, Roaring a'drunken chorus, or a frenzied Hymn of Hate.' Yet some day, and somewhere, we'll meet them, in fair and open fight, And we know we are going to beat them, for England, and Honour, and Right. ''Rolling, pitching, and yawning, through a smashing, raging sea, Black and grim as the jaws of death Save for the funnel's flaming breath, The Destroyers wait
