INQUEST.—Last Tuesday morning, at the Police Station, Mr. R. J. Rhys (Dis- trct Coroner) held an inquiry concern- ing the death of Albert Bird, the two months old baby of Samuel and Ann Bird. 32, Strandnstreet.—The mother de- posed that the child was in its usual health on Saturday night when she went to bed. The child had lain on her arm all night, but when she woke at about 7 o'clock on Sunday morning she found the child lying dead on its back. She had fed him from the breast once during the night. He had never ailed at all. —Eliza Bird, daughter of previous wit- ness, deposed that she slept with her mother on the night in question, but was not alarmed.—Dr. Arthur Jones, giving evidence, stated that the child was per- fectly healthy and well nourished. When called about 8.30 on Sunday morning the child had been dead about .5 or 6 hours. In his opinion death was due to the baby being kept a little too close to his mother's breast, thereby causing suffo- cation. It was quite possible the child had had a slight fit, but there were no signs of it.—The jury returned a verdict of Düath by suffocation in accordance with the medical testimony;"
