Charles Perris, a small farmer, living at Leigh, near Sherborne, Dorset, while hiving a swarm of bees which had settled in the garden, was severely stung and died in a few minutes, A doctor found that a bee bad got into the man’s throat and stung it, and, a rapid swelling ensuing, he died of suffocation. Pat says that if only men could hear their funeral sermons and read their own headstones there would be no living in the world with them at all.
