This exstraordin-ary statement was made at the inquest at Chatham on Tuesday on the body of Walter Tibball, aged sixty-three yeaiB, whose home was an old hut in a meadow adjoining Rochester foot- ball ground. He was formerly a pork butcher at Cambridge, but when, the course off his love failed to run smoothly be cut himself off from all his friends, finally taking up his residence in dIe hut at Rochester. Here with two carts, two rabibats, a hedge sparrow, and linnets, he lived the life of a recluse, seldom speaking to a human being. On Monday morning a rwomian living near by, alarmed at seeing no smoke rising from the chimney of Tibball's hint, went across, and found the .man crouched in a corner. He was: dying, and (before the- woman- could obtain the services of a doctor he was dead. The hut was in an exceptionally dirty condi- tion, the only furniture being an. old couch. 1,1's ello'thing, TibtoalPs clothing, which included three ishirits, two waistcoats, and two jackets, was tied up with string. lit was, indeed, evident that the man had not undressed himself for years.
