A MILFORD CHILD'S DEATH. The death of a boy, George Henrv Baldwin, aged nine, living with his grandparents at Mil- ford, was the subject of a coroner's inquest at Haverfordwest last Friday. George Chown, St. 'Peter's Road, Milford Haven, port missioner for Deep Sea Fishermen, said he was advised to allow the child to under. go an operation in the County Infirmary. He was told that there was not the least danger, and now felt the position very keenly because he had taken the responsibility upon himself and had not consulted the boy's parents. Dr. Mills said that the deceased was suffering from adenoids, causing deafness. Chloroform was administered as an anassthetic, and wit- ness performed the operation successfully, and the patient was recovering when the heart failed. On making a post mortem examina- tion he found that death was due to status lymphaticus, which meant that a gland at the back of the heart had not disappeared when deceased grew from infancy as it should have done. The Coroner remarked that medical science had not yet been able to diagnose this disease, and that everything was done to preserve the child's life. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from an anaesthetic, in consequence of a defective heart."
