DEATH OF MR WALLACE DAVIES.—We sincerely regret to chronicle the death of that much-respected and estimable young townsman, Mr Wallace W. Davies, of 18, Hilda-street, Barry, which occurred, after a brief but painful illness, at his residence about noon on Wednesday last, at the early age of 37 years. Mr Davies served for a number of years in the Army, and went through the Burmese War, rising to the rank of sergeant, and his experiences while serving under the British colours and in active service are recorded in an interesting little handbook, entitled Tommy Atkins at Home and Abroad," which he published after leaving the Army. About ten years ago Mr Davies came to Barry, and was for some time employed as clerk in the Barry Railway Co.'s Offices, but for the last six or seven years he held the responsible post of clerk and cashier in the Surveyor's Department of the Barry District Council, in which capacity he was widely known and deservedly popular. His interest in military matters continued to the end, and he took a prominent part in connection with the formation and subsequent promotion to its present successful state of the Barry Rifle Club. Mr Davies was an ardent Churchman and Temper-. ance worker and possessing rare elocutionary powers, his services were in frequent request for concerts and other entertainments in the town, his efforts being at all times forthcoming for charitable and other deserving objects. It is scarcely a month since the deceased mourned the death of his mother, Mrs Davies, widow of the late Rev W. G. Davies, B.D., vicar of Llanfihangel- Gobion, Abergavenny. Much sympathy is felt for the young widow in her trying bereavement.
