Maxwell, Esq, p.m., held an inquest at Latrobe on Thursday morning on the body of Sarah Wright, who died suddenly at her residence, Latrobe, on the previous day. A jury, consisting of Messrs S. Ready, J. Clark, J. G. Matthews, W. A. Whitaker, H. Bennett, A. Cherry, and Jas. White, was empanelled, Mr S. Ready being elected foreman. The evidence of Samuel Wright, hus- band of deceased, showed that he last saw her alive about nine o'clock the previous morning, when she was laying on her bed. She had complained of having a touch of dropsy, and a medical man had attended her about two months ago. Her age was 41 years. When he. came back, soon after one o'clock in the afternoon, he found her lying on her face in bed, and he turned her over and saw that she was dead. He called his children, and sent for the doctor, and Dr Stewart came. He (Mr Wright) was sure his wife didn't say she was ill wheh he left her yesterday morn- ing. Fanny Wright, daughter of deceased deposed that she last saw her mother alive on Wednesday morning. Her mother came into her bedroom and called her up, and then returned to her own room. She appeared to be in her usual health, and did not complain of being unwell. She next saw. her mother lying asleep in bed on her side, and she went and moved her on to her back to allow her to breathe more freely. She was alive then. Her father came in about noon and called her in to her mother, who he. said was dead. She- . was lying on her side this time also. John Warrener deposed that, about 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning he was coming home, and saw Mr Wright sitting in his porch. He asked him how his wife was, and he replied that she was all right and was in the backyard. He (Mr War- rener) went through the house and saw Mrs Wright sitting on the step of the back verandah. She asked him for a glass of brandy, and he asked her husband to give . ... her one, but be refused until she came into the bedroom. He went and brought her by the hand into the bedroom, and sat her on the foot of the bed. Her husband then gave her not quite half a tumbler full of brandy, and she drank a cup of water after it. He asked her if she was going to sleep and she replied that she wouldn't until she had another glass. He (Mr Warrener) gave her a drop of brandy, about half an inch, in the tumbler with sorne water. She fell gently back on the bed, and he came out, and as he got into the street he heard her calling his name — "Jack," "Jack." He didn't return. When he first saw her on the step she was not exactly drunk, but muddled. She had been a heavy drinker these ten years. To a juryman — She was lying on her back when he left the room. Dr. W. R. Stewart deposed that he. was called in to see the deceased about noon on Wednesday, and found her dead. He had made a post mortem examination, and found that the cause of her death was serous apoplexy. He had been informed by her friends that she had been drinking ex- cessively for the last 12 weeks, and he be- lieved that her death was accelerated by the alcoiiol. The jury then returned a verdict in ac- cordance with the medical testimony.
