SUDDEN DEATH—A sudden death occurred on Wednesday night in the house of Mrs. Warner, at Bozeat. It appears that Mrs. Sarah Timpson (wife of Ernest Timpson, a shoe finisher), between twenty and thirty years of age, who has been suffering from consumption for three years, paid a visit to her neighbour, when she suddenly, whilst sitting down, expired. Medical attendance had not been secured by deceased's relatives prior to her death, and an inquest is being held today.

THE CASE OF SUDDEN DEATH: Mr. W. Terry held an inquest on Friday, on the body of Sarah Timson, who, as reported in our last issue, died suddenly on the preceding Wednesday. Ann Warner stated that her sister, the deceased, who was 27 years of age, had been in ill health for the past ten years, and was consumptive. They were both sitting near the fire on Wednesday afternoon, and deceased was putting up her work to go home, when she coughed and brought up a quantity of blood. She became worse, and died during the evening. Other evidence was called, and a verdict returned of "Death from natural causes" probably from the rupture of a blood vessel on the lungs.
