PONTYPOOL. Agetits-Mr. J. Harding, Market Bookstall, and Messrs Junes and Edwards SHOCKING SUICIDE AT TALYWAIN.—About five o'clock on Monday, David Evans, about 58, clerk in the employ of Messrs. Partridge, Jones and Co., living with David Creese and wife, at Emlyn Terrace, Talywaiu, committed suicide by blowing his brains out. Creese heard Evans go downstairs in the morning, and shortly after heard a gun explode. He ran downstairs and found Evans lying on his back in the kitchen, with a double- barrelled gun between his legs. He was quite dead, and the back of his head was blown com- pletely away. the wall and ceiling being bespattered with blood and flesh. Deceased, who is a one-armed man, must have put the muzzle in his mouth and pulled the trigger with his right hand. He has been separated from his wife for many years. He leaves five children, all grown up, He had been drinking heavily lately, and this, together with the fact that there had been unpleasantness between his children and himself, is thought to be the reason of the rash act. Deceased had been a clerk for Messrs. Partridge and Jones between 20 and 30 years, and was widely known in the district.
