INQUEST.
An inquest was held yesterday by Mr C. A. Wray, coroner, before a jury of whom Mr M. B. Brown was chosen foreman, at the dwelling house, touching the death of Esther Wilds, found drowned the previous evening. The evidence was taken of the husband J. Wilds, the son John Wilds, and of Dr Bowe. It showed that deceased was well at a quarter past 3 o''clock, when she took her husband some tea to a paddock near the house, where he was at work. When he went home in the evening Mrs Wilds was not at home, but he supposed that she had gone to see her married daughter. When the son came home a little before six, and Mrs Wilds had not returned, suspicion was aroused, and her husband went to look at the dam near the house, a pool of water from 3ft to 6ft in depth, and the body of the unfortunate woman was found there. The police and Dr Bowe were sent for, and the latter tried to resuscitate her but without avail, and the doctor in his evidence said he judged that deceased had been in the water an hour. The jury viewed the dam, a somewhat difficult place to get out of, and the circumstances pointed to the conclusion that deceased had slipped in. A verdict was accordingly found that deceased met her death by accidentally drowning.
