GAMBLING IN A PUBLIC HOUSE.

Sarah Bean, landlady of the “Fox and Hounds” public house, Chislett, was charged with allowing gambling with dice in her house on Saturday night week. The charge was proved by Police Sergt, Gower, who said that when he entered the house on the night in question, there were some men raffling with dice. He saw several small sums of money on the table.

George Bean, who appeared for the defendant admitted that what the officer stated was correct. He was raffling off a leg of pork, but did not know he was doing wrong. If the magistrates would look over the offence he would promise it should not occur again.

The Bench dismissed the case on the defendant agreeing to pay 7s. in expenses.

VETERAN CYCLIST'S DEATH. INQUEST AT HERNE BAY.

An inquest was held at the Herne Bay Cottage Hospital on Thursday afternoon by the East Kent Coroner (Mr. Rutley Mowell into the circumstances connected with the death of Henry Broadbury, a retired schoolteacher, aged 71 years who had resided at the "Fox and Hounds," Chislet.

According to the evidence, deceased was in the habit of riding a tricycle, and on Monday evening, after tea, said he was going for a ride on a second-hand machine, which he had recently bought, and that he should try it down Bullockstone Hill. He was warned to be careful and not have an accident. "Oh, bosh, accident" he replied. "It is no good having a tricycle, if it wont go down a hill."

Later, an agricultural labourer, named Ernest Alfred Jones, of Hollybush Cottage Herne, while cycling up Bullockstone Hill, found the deceased lying by the side of the road and the overturned tricycle near him.

Jones called P.C. Earl, who telephoned to Dr. Fenoulhet at Herne Bay. The doctor, after attending to the man's injuries, had him removed to the Cottage Hospital, where he died in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Deceased had obtained a fracture of the base of the skull, and this was the cause of death. The tricycle was in good condition, according to the evidence although P.C. Earl said the head seemed to have too much play in the steering. The jury returned a verdict, of "Death by Misadventure."

The 1871 census states he was vice principal, aged 28, at Dane Hill House School, Margate. Born in Collingham, Nottinghamshire.
