took the baby down to dress. In a few minutes after, she heard a scream, and ran down stairs, to find that the baby had fallen into a bucket, of hot water. She applied oil, lime water, and flour to the injuries, and took the child to Dr. Thomas' surgery. The doctor dressed the child at once, and advised her to take it to the Hos- pital and she did as she was directed. She last saw the baby alive on Saturday afternoon, when she was with it for two hours in the Hos- pital. The child was then very bad; and at half-past ten on Sunday morning, information was sont her that he had died that morning at half-past eight. Harriet Simcock, daughter of the last wit- ness, said she dressed the baby on Friday morn- ing and afterwards, he went to sit on a little stool, behind which there was a bucket of boil- ing water, placed ready to wash the floor. She turned round to put the kettle on the fire, and no sooner had she done so than s'ie heard the baby falling into the bucket. On turning round, she saw that he had fallen backward into the water. She undressed the chiid as quick as she could, and her mother came down, a,nd attended to it. Miss Clara Cuerton, a nurse at the Alexandra Hospital, said the child died from exhaustion as the result of the scalding. It was considered a helpless case from the first. A verdict of 'accidental death' was returned. BRAVERY REWARDED.
