A Child Accidenta.lly Ha-nged.-The other day, a child, six months old, whose parents, named Clark, live at Harton, within two miles of South Shields, had fallen asleep in bed, and the mother had placed a chair alongside in order to prevent its falling out. A few minutes afterwards, she went back to the roomi to see if the child was still asleep, and found the infant hanging by the chin to the top of the rail of the chair, quite dead. It is thought that the child had awoke, and in its endeavours to get out of bed, met with the accidenti, Death of an Omnibus Conductor.—Dr. Lan- kester held an inquest on Thursday at the Royal Free Hospital, Gray's-ian-road, on vifew of the body of Alfred Sheppard, 33 years of age. The deceased had been a conductor in the service of the London General Omnibus Company. He had latterly complained of ill-health, and had asked for a rest. He expected hav- ing a rest on Sunday, but it was not allowed. On the afternoon of that day he complained of his head, and went into the yard of the Peacock, at Islington, to bathe it in a tub of water. He rejoined his bus, and soon after passing the Angel he fell baek from his standing-place. He was conveyed to the hospital, where he died on Tuesday morning. The hospital surgeon was of opinion that the company ought to have granted the rest for which he had applied. It was also stated in evidence that he had been ia the service of the company for not less than seven years. The jury found a verdict of accidental death, and passed a resolution expressing their regret that the company refused a holiday to the deceased at a time when he was evidently unfit to perform bia duties.

The only damage dose is at the coastguard station, where the topmast of the flag- staff,ia shivered to pieces, the tiggicg burnt, and the vane at the top cut from the pivot, which, aloag with pieces of the mastt, were strewn about the yard. For- tunately it rained heavily at the time, which caused the coastguard to take shelter in the house. A large splinter from i he mast waa thrown over an adjoining house across the street.
