I NOTED SOLVA CHARACTER. EDWARD CALLAGHAN DEAD. The death took place yesterday (Thursday) afternoon of Edward Callaghan, of Solva, 't the age of 75 years, after a short illness. The news of his death was received with regret on all hands, as deceased was well-known and well liked in the district. In his younger days he was a bright and intelligent lad, but a narrow escape from drowning Jm- paired his intell-act. He fell into Solva River, and was carried some distance with the stream, eventually being rescued in a semi-conscioua state For many years Calican," as he was famili- arly called, used to go to Nolton Coalpits, driving before him about a dozen donkeys, and bringing home culm for the people of Solva. From this work he reluctantly retired owing to failing halth. It is but a short time since he was out caxol singing from door to door. On these occasions he always met with a welcome. When the time came for carrying The Wren (in accordance with the old custom) old "Cali- can had, as a substitute, a huge fowl, gaily decorated with ribbons in all the colours of the rainbow, supplied by some of his lady friends. Deceased was known as a rtrict-ly honest man, thoroughly trustworthy and truthful. His neighbouis entrusted him with important and urgent messages, which he always accom- plished satisfactorily. Callaghan was a faithful and zealous mem- ber of the Wesleyan connexion at Sclva, and after that body abandoned their cause there he used to visit all denominations in turn, and was a communicant with them all, although in late years he was a faithful attendant at the Methodist Church We venture to state that no one visited Solva during the last iifty yeais without becoming familiar with" Calican." Many hundreds of his photograjhs have lwii sold in the district.. We understand that a movement is on foot to pay a last tribute vf respect to his memory by ensuring for his mortal remains a suitable burial. We have no doubt that this proposil will be heartily fuppoited
