Green's property, and later the body of Haynes was also found near the same spot. Thomas's wife has been paralysed for years, and Haynes's widow and three children are quite unprovided for. An inquest was held at Timaru yesterday touching the death of R. W. Chumpney. A rumor got abroad that death resulted from poisoning, but the medical evidence showed that deceased died from spinal disease resulting from a fall from a horse four years ago. The case was a bad one of spinal disease, and one of the symptoms was sickness, the frequency of whioh gave rise to a rumor of poisoning. A verdict of "Death from natural causes" was returned. BLENHEIM, August 13. Mortimer, an old man who had been supported by the Charitable Aid Board, died suddenly at the hospital this morning while engaged washing clothes. Heart disease was the cause of death.
