DgATH FROM HTDBOPHOBIA. —Last week Dr. Danford Thomas held an inquest at the Providence Hall, Paddington, on the body of Thomas Jenkins, 14, assistant to a newsvendor, and who resided with his father, a railway employe, on the Queen's-park Estate, Harrow-road. Harriet Jenkins, the mother, stated that in September last deceased was bitten by a dog on the right forefinger. He felt no inconve- nienoe. and therefore had no medical attendance, but a chemist cauterised the wound. On Tuesday, the 16th, he went home, and appeared to have a cold. He seemed dull, and refused victuals and drink. Next day he was worse. On Thursday, the 18th, he was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, and died there on Saturday week. Mr Robert Spicer, house sur- geon, St: Mary's Hospital, said deceased when ad- mitted was pale and exhausted, showing traces of hydrophobia. After being placed in the ward, violent spasms set in, and he became unable to t ike either solid or liquid food. Nourishment was administered artificially, and steps taken in the same way to re- lieve the spasms, but he expired on Saturday from hydrophobia. Daniel Cayford, a smith, Cbippenham. mews said that in December last his son had a re- triever puppy, which was then three month's eld. He remembered the deceased pointing at the dog. This made the animal snap at him and catch his finger, the skia of which was grazed. The dog had not had the distemper. After biting the boy, witness had him tied up, and he became restless and was killed. It was stated in evidence that bites from puppies wore worse and more dangerous than from old dogs. Dr. Gawith said he knew of a case in which a dog had bitten 14 persons, seven of whom died froui hydro- phobia. The jury returned the following verdict:- That the deceased died from hydrophobia." 1' KAY'S TIC PILLS, a speciSc in Neuralgi, FMe-ache. &c., 9 £ d., Is. lid.; postage Id. Of Chemists.
