"David Jones (38) who served through the Kaffir and Zulu wars, died suddenly at Scotland street, Llanrwst, under painful circumstances. He was a plasterer, and had been out all day on Friday working, and returning home in the evening, he remarked to his wife just before going to bed that he would never have anything more to do with drink.
Not long after he had retired he complained to his wife of the room being close, and asked her to open the window, which she did instantly, and in answer to his further requests opened all the doors and sought medical aid. In tbe meantime he became worse, and finding himself suffocating rushed downstairs, and sat before the open door, where he expired soon after the arrival of the doctor, who stated that he had died of apoplexy.
