I VICTIM OF GAS. I I Death of Ex-Deputy Cierk of Pontardawe Guardians. The death took place at, hie home in Herbert-street, Pontardawe, on Saturday morning, of Private Roger H. Edwards" eon of Mr. Edward Edwards. Deceased, I who was only 27 years of age, had acted until 1913 as deputy c?rk to th? Pontar- dawe Board of Guardians. He then em;- grAtMl to Canada, and when war broke out he was among6t the first to respond to the call of the Mother Country. He I proceeded to France with the Canadian forces, and after undergoing hard fight- ing for some months, he was caught in the first discharge of gas emitted by the enemy. After lying on the battlefield for sev- eral hours he was picked up and sent to one of the London hospitals for treat- ment. About twelve months ago he had sufficiently recovered to return to Pontar- dawe, where he has stayed since with his family and friends. He bore his long ill- ness with remarkable fortitude. Mr. Edwards was an extremely well-known ajid popular figure in the Valley, and through- his genial and kindly disposition he had e»deared himself to many. Prior to leaving for Canada he took a keen in- terest in the Pontardawe hockey and teu- nis clubs. Much sympathy is felt for the I family in their bereavement.
