TOOK NO FOOD ALL DAY. i A peculiar story was told to Mr. L. M. ^Thomas, district coroner, at Neath, on Tuesday, during an investigation into the circumstances connected with the death of Ann Pritchard, aged 84 years, of Glamorgan-street, Neath, who died sud- denly the previous day. James Pritchard, masons* labourer, son, with whom deceased lived, said he had not sent for a doctor because he thougnt it was rheumatism. She had been bedridden for a fortnight, but never complained and refused to eat. Matilda Summers, a lodger, eaid she caw the old woman at ten o'clock and agai4 attliree. when she found her dead. The Coroner: Didn't you give her any food at all that day ? Witness: No, sir; only a cup of tea. She leved her cup of tea, poor thing. The Coroner: Didn't you feed her at all? âNo, phe wouldn't eat anything. Dr Joseph Walters attributed death to senile decay, and summing up the Coroner expr,veed the hope that' if the female witness lived to the age of sa, someone would give her more sympathetic care and attention than she had bestowed upon the old ltdy. Th. jur, returned a verdict in accord- op with the medical evidence.
