SUICIDE OF AN ARTILLERYMAN AT WOOLWICH.

Wednesday afternoon Mr. C. J. Carttar, coroner for West Kent, held an inquiry at the “Gun Tavern,” New-road Woolwich, into the circumstances attending the death of Quarter-master Sergeant Robert Mumford, Royal Artillery, who, it was alleged, had committed suicide by taking poison.

The evidence proved that, on the previous Saturday, the deceased went to a public-house named the “Soldiers' Rest,” where he was found in a slate of insensibility, and conveyed to the Royal Ordnance Hospital. He was promptly attended by Dr. Duff, but died shortly after his admission into the institution. The deceased had purchased two separate quantities of morphia at the shop of Mr. Shipman, chemist, a few days previous to his death, and the appearance presented by a post mortem examination led to the conclusion that resulted from poison. After some conversation between the coroner and jury it was considered advisable to obtain an analysis of the contents of the stomach by an eminent authority, and the inquest was adjourned for that purpose.
