survived by the following children: Ivor Thomas, of
Cleveland, Ohio; Gomer Thomas, of Rice street, Alliance, and
Luella and Elizabeth Thomas who reside with their father
at home here. Since childhood Mrs. Thomas was a
consistent and a faithful worker in the Lord's vineyard. One
of hte old Welsh hymns she learned when a child was about the last
words she spoke before her soul took its flight into the presence of
Him who rewardeth the faithful. Although born in this country.
Mrs. Thoams could talk the Welsh language as though she had
just come from Tregaron. We extend to the family our sympathy,
and pray that the exemplary life of this good mother in Israel will
be the means of awakening our Welsh friends, and others that knew
her, to a more earnest endeavor to follow her, as she followed the
Master. The funeral took place from her late home on the
following Thursday, the Rev. O. R. Williams, of the Welsh

character by the name of Daniel Jones, which occurred a few
days ago. He was known only to a few people. He came
here a few years ago from Sharon, Pa. Soon after coming here
he was taken sick and was partly paralyzed; hence he did not get out
much. He was born in Merthyr Tydfil eighty years ago, and was
a puddler by occupation. He lived he most of his time since
coming to this country in Sharon. The body was taken to Sharon
for burial. The Rev. Mr. Williams, of our Welsh church,

the shadow of the Almighty.
