An inquiry into the cause of death of Mr H T Morley, civil engineer and house agent, 0 former borough surveyor of Tenby, was held ZD by Mi H J E, Price, county coroner, on Tues- day, Mr Bertie Morley, son of the deceased, stated that his father came from Carmarthen on Thursday, and on Monday morning lie seemed quite rational and cheerful. He left him in the greenhouse potting plants, and a few minutes afterwards found him dead in the water closet, having shot himself in the head with an old-fashioned walking-stick gun. The jury returned a verdict of Suicide during temporary insanity." Charles Parsons, a St. Austell schoolboy, aged 13 years, conceived a great regard for an actress in a travelling theatre that visited the town. When the theatre moved on to Barry, Glamorgan, the boy became very morose, and on Sunday last he left his home for Barry Dock. When he was stopped by the police at Exeter he had in his possession £ 8, all in silver. Six months' stocktaking of 250 cotton spinning companies in Central and South. East Lancashire have just been completed, and satisfactory profits, ranging from £5,000 to C40,000 were revealed. Dividends rang- ing from 10 to 20 per cent. will be paid to thousands of jubilant shareholders. At Witlev, Surrey, on Wednesday night, the death occurred of Sergeat George Morris, at the age of 80. Morris, joined the old 28th Regiment in 1847, and was present at the siege of Sebastopol and the battles of Inker- man and Alma. He also served in the sup- pression of the Indian mutiny. It is stated that entries in the literary com- petitions for this year's National Eisteddfod have been received from all parts of the world, including America and South Africa, and numerically they constitute almost a record. Rayner, the murderer of William Whiteley, has made, it is stated, since, his imprisonment at Parkhurst, two attempts to commit suicide. He is utterly depressed by his posi- tion, and the most vigilant precautions have had to be taken by the prison authorities. For the present he has been removed from the ordinary part of the prison and placed in that part of the hospital where the feeble-minded convicts are guarded.
