Obituary—With regret we report the death which occurred on Monday of Mrs. Pricilla Lucas, 66, wife of Mr. Geo. Lucas, of 5 York-road, Higham Ferrers.

Bates, of Rushden, and Miss F. Lucas, to mourn their loss. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the Rev. H. Graham Payn (Wesleyan minister), officiating.
