Text:

DETERMINED SUICIDE.—An inquest was held at Chippendale, by the Coroner, on Friday, on the body of a man named John Turner, who swallowed a quantity of laudanum on the previous morning. The evidence went to show that deceased had been indulging freely in intoxicating liquors throughout several years. Five years ago he fell over the railway bridge, and his intellect never quite recovered the shock then received. He had been drinking to excess in the early part of the week, and took a quantity of laudanum kept in the house for medicinal purposes. He bade his wife good bye, and despite the efforts of Dr. Grey he died. Deceased was a boot and shoe maker, and a native of London. Verdict -"Died from having taken an overdose of laudanum, and at the time we consider he was suffering from temporary insanity."-Herald, April l8.
