I On Saturday last Mr T Hutchinson, county coroner, held an inquest on Ernest and Gladys Jenkios, father and daughter, who were drowned in the River Wye at Hereford. The jury returned an open verdict of Found drowned." The evidence of Nora Jenkins, a domestic servaut employed at the Wye Hotel, was that she last saw her father and sister/ who was. aged 10 years, on Wednesday. Her father was very depressed, and told her he had > been turned out of house and home and was going to a Hereford lodging-house. Wit- ness advised him not to go by the riverside as his sight was bad, but he replied, "Gladys will look after me." On Thursday witness inquired at Hereford lodging-houses, but nothing bad been heard of her father. He was nearly blind, could not attend his work, and bad drawn all the instirance money be was entitled to, which worried him exceed- ingly. Mrs Jenkins also gave evidence. Her hus- band had told her the state of his eyes would break his heart. They bad lived happily to- gether, and it was untrue to suggest that she turned her husband and Gladys out. Harold Bull and Sergeant Reynolds proved finding the bodies, and Dr G Donaldson Tullis stated that death was due to drown- ing. There was a bruise on the child's head, but be could not say whether this was due to a blow.
