Information was at once given to Mr. Durdle, chief inspector of the railway company's police, who ordered the body to be taken to the Paddington police-station, when it was examined by Mr. J. S. Beale, surgeon, of Porter's-road, Padding- ton, who said the child was about seven days old, had been remarkably healthy, and had been dead about three hours. At the time the babe was found there was a lady in an adjoining first-class ladies' waiting- room, who, on being interrogated by Mr. Durdle, stated that she had come to the. station to see a lady off by the six a.m. train, and that she had been resting herself since tha.t time.
