DISTRACTED FATHER POSTPONED SWAN- SEA FUNERAL PLACARD STIRS MEMORY: GENEROUS DEED. The publicity given in the Post on Wednesday to the sad circumstances of the Swansea funeral, postponed owing to poverty, has disclosed once more what a fund of practical sympathy there is in the town, which is directed from time to time on to a particularly deserving case, such as this. The same evening the undertaker re- ceived a guarantee of payment of the funeral expenses from a gentleman in the Uplands," who did not wish his iden- tity disclosed. This, however, is known to the "Post." It is that of a well-known professional gentleman who told a Post reporter on Thursday morning that five minutes after he had received his Post on Wednesday evening he telephoned the police to guarantee,, on his behalf, the funeral expenses to the undertaker. "I visited the house afterwards, and was very saddened by what I saw," he said. It is a very deserving case, and I am extremely grateful to the Post' for giving it the publicity it did. But for this prominence nothing would have bean heard of it. and in this respect the PRESS IS A GODSEND I ? I in bringing these things to light." By first post on Thursday an offer came from a Briton Ferry gentleman, asking us to defray the funeral. expenses for him and send him the bill, and this was quickly followed by a kindly offer from Messrs. Ben Evans and Co. to defray the cost. The funeral was fixed to take place at 1.30 on Thursday. A representative of the "Daily Post" called at No. 11. Charles-street, Greenhill, on Thursday morning and saw Mrs. Hunter and Mr. Hunter, and they were profuse in their thanks for what had been done through the agency of the "Post." The were then 1 preparing for the funeral.

He had waited until 2.30 at the I I.Jwe of appointment. The funeral wa.s for 3.30. Hunter added "I must Lave been out of my mind, ,md wandered about till I found mvself in Neath. I SAW THE 'DAILY POST' PLACARD, I, I I aind I remember someone talKing to me about it.. and I bought- a paper and came home." Hunter is a tall, well-built ex-Army man, and he told our representative that his work was very irregular. There had been some misunderstanding among his workmates. A suggestion had been made to get up a sub- scription for him to bury his little one, and the gentleman who promised the loan was under the impression that sufficient money had been subscribed, and this was not so.
