MAENTWROG. This village, which last week was the scene of a terri- ble coach accident, resulting in the death of three per. sons, has again be' n thrown into a state of excitement owing to the announcement of the death of Miss Eleanor Roberts, who, with her sister, has so long conducted the piivate Hotel and Boarding-house at Penyian. The de- ceased lady was the daughter of the late Rev. Robert Roberts, for some time the clergyman at Llanfachraeth. At an early age she removed to the village of Traws- fynydd, where she was well known and greatly respect- ed. Eventually she and her sister, Miss Phoebe Ro- berts, came to reside at Maentwrog, and established the business which has been so honourably mentioned by the tourists and others visiting this neighbourhood. For some time past Miss Eleanor had been in a weak and prostrate condition, and on Friday, the 19th ult., at 11 o'clock a.m., surrounded by her distressed relations, she quietly breathed her la-st. The funeral, which was strictly private, took place on Saturday, the 27th ult., at Llanfachrath, and the service, owing to the unavoidable absence of the Rev. M. Williams, Incumbent, was per- formed by the Rev. Mr. Jones, of Dolgelley. Several of her old friends, however, attended, and testified to the great esteem and respect in which she was held. Thus terminates the mortal career of one who, whatever her faults may have been, was ever the first to succour the distressed and lend a helping hand to the needy. Her memory will long be cherished by many a grateful and sorrowing friend. At her de<tth she had reached her 60th year.
