She at once called Mr. Grecngo. and ran out Into the road.

Major-General Txroir, pursuant to notioe, aaid that he desired to bring before the Board a letter which appeared in the Ha%U Independent of the 18th May, headed "Chanty Organization Society and Pensions for tie Deeerving Poor." He said had that letter been written by a private individual he should not have taken any notioe of it, but as it emanated from a public body, the Southampton Charity Organiaatioa Society, he attached eome importance to it. The object of the writers—Meaar*. Darwin and Griffin—waa to enliat the sympathy of the public, and thereby obtain subscriptions to save a poor old woman who waa not in receipt of outdoor relief from the " degradation" of entering the Workhouse. Now Workhouses were recognised institutions throughout the country, but it had been reserved to the Charity Organization Society of Southampton to make the diacovery that all their inmatee, who might be counted by thousands, were degraded through entering a Workhouse. As a Guardian he felt bound to protest against such a misrepresentation, *nd he contended that It was a libel on the poor t? asaert that those whose neoeeaities forced them into UwWorkhoue. wen, degrmd** (hear. hear). He moved /That the Board of Guardians cannot too stronglydepre-cate the communication of the Southampton Charity Orgamaatma Society, which appeared in the fndepentient of the 18th instant, in which the opinion was exprj^sed that the poor incur degradation by entei ing the Workbouee, and they regret that a letter con taining such an expression of opinion should have beei pubbahed in the newspapers."—Mr. Wooldridoe, ii aeoonding the proposition, said ho waa very pleaeed that notioe bad been taken of the letter, becauae there were

About twenty minutes before Mrs. Edom came for him, he and his wife were altting quietly In the kitchen, when he heard a sudden sharp snap from next door, which soundsd ae if the boys had thrown a stone on the slates, which they were in the habit of doing.
Dr. Morris stated that about a quarter to eleven o'clock on Wednesday morning he went to the deceased's house, and on reaching there he found him lying on the sofa In the back parlour quite dead. His clothes were saturated with water as far aa the waist &ad there was a wound in the forehead, such as would be caused by a small bullet, from which blood waa oozing. He afterwards searched the water butt In which he found the six-chambered revolver produced He examined it, and found that five chambers were still loaded and the other one had been recently discharged. Without a pod mortem examlnat&m it would be Impossible to say whether death resulted fron tbe pistol shot, or suffocation from contact with the water. Tbe wound would have undoubtedly caua*d death, but not inatantaneouely, although It would hav, produced insensibility, as persons with a wound In the brain often lived for some time afterwards.

The Coroner said, without calling any further evidence, mnwWiIng wen * further medical examination, he thought tbejury would have no dlf&mlty In agreeing to - verdict. They would first have to consider by what leans the deceased came by his death, whether by his
mind if he committed self-murder. In his (the Coroners) mind there was no doubt as to who it was committed the act for there was no one one slas In the house at the time, and it was committed with his own revolver which was concealed under some clothes In a drawer upstairs. The exact cause of death might perhaps Involve a nice medical question, but It would at once present Itself to them that the primary cauae of death was tbe pistol shot, which would have been quite sufficient to cause death apart from drowning in the water butt If they bad any difficulty In determining the state of his mind at the time, and as to this point they had had very little evidence, as an alternative they could say that the deceased committed suicide, but thrre was not sufficient evidence to show the state of his mind at the time.
After a brief consultation the Foreman (Mr. R. Howard) aaid the j-iry were unanimously agreed that the deceased committee suicide whilst in a state of unsound mind.—A verdict was returned accordingly.
