THE FATAL ACCIDENT IN THE HUNTING FIELD. Inquest on Mr. Lister. I On Tuesday Mr E. D. Batt, coroner, held an inquest at Cefn Ila, the seat of the late Mr Edward Lister, respecting his death, which took place on Saturday last, while riding with the Llangibby and Chepstow Hounds. Mr Alfred Gething, or Llancayo, near Usk, was called, and said he was out with the Llan- gibby hounds on Saturday, the meet taking place at Llanvair Discoed, Wentwood. He saw Mr Lister, and was riding with him for some tune. He was only 10 or 12 yards from witness when he fell. The fence was a small one, and Mr Lister did not ride hard at it. The pony jumped on to the back of the fence, and off into a wheat field on the other side. The pony "pecked," and the glider wast thrown over its shoulder very sharply. Witness waited a short time for Mr Lister to get out of the way, but on riding up to the fence he saw him lying on his back. He then went round through a gateway to him. He did not speak or breath, and was evi- dently dead. The Coroner asked the jury whether they wanted to hear more evidence. In reply, they said it was quite sufficient. The Coroner told the jury that Dr. W. Boulton had seen the body soon after the accident, and attributed death to inju- ries sustained to the neck. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidentally killed."
