DEATH ON THE ROAD. On T-lissclay afternoon Dr. Lankester held an inejuest touching the death of Mr. George Robinson, a respect- able tradesman, who had resided for many years, in the Lower-road, Islington, and had taken an active part in parochial affairs. Mr-. Baker, a shopkeeper in the Lower-road, the deceased, and Mr. Rowcliffe were pro- ceeding in a dog-cart to Barnet races on the 7th inst. They left Islington at about three o'clock, and on nearing the Manor-house, in the Green-lanss, beyond Hornsey, the mare which drew the cart, and which was driven by Mr. Baker, "shied" at something on the road, and so caused one of the wheels to get on a grass bank above the level of the road. Mr. Baker was thrown out with the reins in his hands, but was obliged to let them go, when he fell upon the road. The mare then started off on a gallop. Mr. Row- cliffe then jumped out at the near side for the purpose of catching the which were hanging from tha animal's head. He was, however, jerked out in the attempt, and only saved himself from being run over by throwing his body ever on one side. Mr. Baker came- to him imniiediately afterwards, and they found Mr. Robinson lying almost in a stage of insensibility on the side of the road. It was. believed that he had attempted to jump from the part, and, being a heavy man, was thrown forward on hishead with considerable force. Deceased it was thought might easily have saved himself by getting out at the back of the cart. With the assistance of the mounted policeman Mr. Rowcliffe and Mr. Baker removed the deceased to the Manor-house, and subsequently, by the advice of a doctor, to his own home, where he died on the 13th inst., from effects of concussion of the brain, caused by the .fall from the cart. The jury found a verdict of "Accidental .death," and expressed their opinion that there had been no carelessness on the part of either Mr. Baker or Mr. Rowcliffe.. Mr. Robinson has left a widow and thir- teen, children to mourn his loss. J. Oli — 'I 'j!.
