CARBOLIC ACID POISONING. ♦ RESTRAINTS REQUIRED. On Thursday at the Liverpool City Coroner's Court, Mr. T. E. Sampson held an inquest on the body of Alice Ireland, aged 28 years, wife of James Ireland, a wheelwright, residing at Rock-view, Torr-street. From the evidence it appeared that the deceased was a steady woman, but was of a nervour temperament. On the 18th January she gave birth to twins, which only lived a few weeks. She never regained her strength after confinement, and was subject to severe pains in the head. When her husband left home on Wednesday morning to go to work deceased was left in bed. She appeared to be unwell, and he offered to send a doctor to her, but she replied that she would soon be better. Shortly after eight o'clock the deceased sent her little daughter out to play, which was a rather unusual thing for her to do. The child returned to the house at about 8.30, and not being able to gain admission, went to school. On returning to the house at noon the house was still found to be locked up, but the child climbed over the backyard wall, and on entering the house heard her mother moaning. The deceased was found lying unconscious on the bedroom floor. A police officer was summoned, and he removed the woman to the Stanley Hospital, where she died the same day from the effects of carbolic poisoning. The police officer said that he found a bottle and a cup in the kitchen of the house. There was no acid in the bottle, but some remained in the cup. There was a label on the bottle, Carbolic acid for disinfecting purposes,' but no name was affixed to show by whom it had been sold.-The Coroner said it was a pity that there was not some restraint put upon the sale of carbolic acid, which was used for a variety of purposes, and was as easily obtained as a glass of water or the purchasing of milk.—In answer to a juror, the Coroner said the seller was not bound to have his name on the bottle.—A verdict of Suicide while temporarily insane' was returned by the jury.
