The Late Mr J. A. Shepard. At Tredegar Connty Court on 'Tuesday, his Honour Judge Owen Teferred;in sympathetic terms to the death of Mr John Alexander Shepard, the registrar of the court.—Mr John Sankey, on behalf of the Bar, and Mr T. G. Powell, on behalf of the solicitors practic-itig at that court, associated themselves with the remarks^of his honour. The Judge's appointment of Mr E. H. Davies as the new registrar has been confirmed by the Lord Chancellor. At the Tredegar Urban Council meeting, Itir H. J. 0. Shepard was unanimously elected clerk in the place of his father. The following tribute to the late Major J. A. Shepard, as a Volunteer, is given in a con- temporary-" The Volunteer movement in Monmouthshire has lost one of its veterans by the death of Major J. A. Shepard. For many years he was the mainstay of the Tredegar Company. He was wholly responsible for its formation, he spared neither energy nor money to keep it going, and he was instrumental in providing the company with one of the most commodious drill halls in the county. Regular in his attendance at camp, he was one of the most popular officers in the battalion, and his jovial demeanour brought life at many a flagging moment. To his company he was most devoted and painstaking, with the result that his men marched into camp stamped with smartness and efficiency upon which he was more than once complimented by the inspeoting-officer. He viewed his company with boyish pride after these occasions, and the feeling of the men towards him was one of marked affection. Volunteering is all the poorer by his death."
