Two Deaths in Cymric Circles - Premier Welsh Tenor Coming.
Alliance, Ohio, Jan. 7. - After a protracted illness of many weeks, Mrs. Mary Thomas of College street died at her home on Tuesday, Dec. 14, 1915.  She was born in Palmyra, Ohio, sixty-eight years ago, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Davies.  In 1870 she was united in marriage to W. W. Thomas, of Alliance.  They resided in Palmyra for many years, but several years ago came back to Alliance, where they  resided permanently.  Besides her husband, she is 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 Presbyterian church, officiating, assisted by the Rev. F. J. Brysom, of the First Presbyterian church, and the Rev. Mr. Humphries, of Lowellville, Ohio, an old friend of the family.  Interment took place in the Alliance cemetery.
     We have also to record the death of an old 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, having charge of the services, both here and at Sharon.
     We are sorry to record that our friends, Mr. and Mrs. Evan Jones, and their brother, John Jones, of South Street, received the sad news from Wales of the death of their brother, Henry Jones, Mochras View, Lanbedr, Meirionethshire.  Mr. Jones was a gardener, and leaves a widow and six children.  May all these people dwell in the shadow of the Almighty. 
     On Monday evening, January 17, the world-renowed Welsh tenor, Evan Williams, will be in our city.  He has many admirers in our city, and it is believed a capacity house will greet him.
     In the third week of this month the Rev. R. J. Williams, of Venedocia, is here and in Palmyra for a series of meetings.  On Sunday, January 16, he will be in Palmyra, remaining there until Thursday, when he comes to Alliance, tarrying here until after Sunday, January 22.  Mr. Williams will preach in the English language, except on Saturday night and Sunday morning.  May the Lord come with His servant, is our prayer.
     It is a pleasure to record that three men of Welsh blood were elected last November for city offices.  We refer to A. W. Morris who was re-elected city solicitor; Harry Roderick,  city treasurer, and R. E. Jones, justice of the peace.  Mr. Morris was born in Marlboro, this county, and Mr. Roderick in Kentucky, while Mr. Jones is a native of Tredegar.         W. J. M.
