THE SUICIDE OF DR. WARDER. On Thursday, the inquest on the body of Dr. Alfred William Warder, who committed suicide, by taking a quantity of prussic acid, at 1, Bedford Hotel, Brighton, was concluded. Dr. Pickford detailed the result of the post-mortem examination. Deceased's brain structure was normal and healthy, and its substance exceedingly firm. There was an absence of all evidence of disease of the brain or its investing membranes. There was an odour of prussic aoid in the contents of the stomach. Dr. Taaffe proved that he tested for prussic acid in the contents of the stomach, and found it by both Scheele's test and Liebig's sulphur test. Daring his five weeks' attendance on Dr. War- der's late wife he had never observed even the slightest symptoms of insanity about him. He had frequently talked to Dr. Warder about Mrs. Warder's illness, and considered him perfectly sane. After the post-mortem, examination of Mrs. Warder's body Dr. Warder asked him for a certificate of death, and when he refused it drew attention to the appearance of the liver and brain as being sufficient" to account for death. Dr. Warder also said he wished the body buried immediately, saying he did not think it would keep this hot weather. The jury returned a verdict of Jelo de se. The coroner ordered burial accordingly.
