SAD LIST OF TRAGEDIES. I At Kirkstall, near Leeds on Monday evening, a coroner's jury found that Edith Worth, 'only 15 years of age, had, in a fit of temporary insanity, drowned herself in the river Aire. The coroner said it appeared to be a girl's "tiff," which was not at all uncommon. The deceased, according to the evidence, wanted a white blouse washed in readiness for the Bramley .Carnival on Saturday, and, vexed that it could not be done, she ended her life. Whilst playing in a hayfield, at Hornchurch, near Romford, on Saturday, a three-year old boy, named Frank Swan, was killed by the cart passing over him. The child's father was helping to load the cart. A sad double fatality occurred at Astley-bridge, near Bolton, on Monday afternoon, Frederick Greenhagh and George Grundy, schoolboys, aged about twelve, were playing with a number of com- panions in the ruins of an old mill, when a wall suddenly collapsed, burying the two lads in its debris. One was dead when extricated, and the other expired almost immediately afterwards. Mr. Franklin Fenn, aged 23, son of the Rev. Anthony C. Fenn, Rector of Wrabness, Essex, was drowned in the River Stour on Sunday while bathing with three companions. A Radley College boy named William Brown, aged 15, was drowned while bathing at the college bathing-place, Sandford-on-Thames, on Saturday. A deep hole had been recently dredged, and deceased, who could not swim, was unaware of it. He got into this and sank before assistance could be rendered. The body was shortly afterwards recovered. A party of young lady assistants from Messrs. White's, Aldershot, were out for a cycle ride, and on descending Windsor-hill just before reaching Shackleford, near Godalming, one of them, Miss Florence Emma Lewthwaite, aged 22, of Balham, collided with her friend who was riding imme- diately in front and both fell. Miss Lewthwaite was picked up unconscious, and died a few hours later.
