DEATH FROM EATING COAL. A verdict of death from misadventure was re- turned at an inquest in London on Friday on the body of Mary Ann Fay, who was found dead in her bedroom. A post-mortem showed that in the windpipe and stomach THERE were small pieces of coal.—The Coroner asked for what purpose persons ate coal, and a juror replied that it was supposed to be a cure for heartburn. The stomach also contained undi- gested food and smelt of alcohol, and the liver was much enlarged owing to alcoholism. A doctor said there was no doubt that the deceased had fal- ten down whilst under the influence of drink, ot as the result of an epileptic seizure, and vomited the food and pieces of coal which got into the windpipe and caused death by suffocation.
