    • DR. W. C. WATSON'S DEATH.
      PRUSSIC ACID POISONING.
      Dr. Walter Carter Watson, of Fairlight street. Manly, was found dead in his con- sultlng-room at 78 Hunter-street, Sydney, on the 7th instant under suspicious clrcum- stances. An inquiry held at the City Coroner's Court yesterday failed to clear up the matter.
      Dr. Statford Sheldon, who performed a post- mortem examination of the body, said that when he entered the surgery on the 7th he saw a medicine glass in the room, stained with some brownish liquid, and evidently used recently. There seemed to be a smell of prusslc acid about it, and the body when opened the next day at the morgue presented several characteristics of prusslc acid poison- ing, which was, in witness's opinion, the cause of death. This poison was sometimes taken medicinally, though not usually kept by doctors, and witness had known accidents occur through its being taken in mistake or in an overdose.
      Alicia Watson, wife of deceased, said that her husband had seemed in fairly bright spirits during the week in which he died, though he had been ill for the last 12 months, and appeared to he growing steadily weaker. He suffered from rheumatism, and for about nine months had to be helped on with his clothes. He never said anything about taking his own life. He kept a stock of medicines, and used to dispense them himself.
      The coroner returned a verdict to the effectthat deceased died from prusslc acid poison- ilng, self administered, but whether accidentally or intentionally the evidence adduced did not enable him to say.(Sydney Morning Herald)
