SUDDEN DEATH - An Inquest was held on Tuesday at 27, Rack-street, by Mr Coroner Hooper, on the body of ELLEN GUSCOTT, who died suddenly on Sunday last. ALFRED JOSEPH GUSCOTT, the husband, stated that the deceased, who was 47 years of age, was lying in bed on Sunday afternoon, when she complained of feeling unwell. Witness thought it advisable to send for a doctor, but upon his arrival she was dead. Mr C. J. Vlieland, surgeon, of St. Thomas, said death was due to syncope, and the Jury returned a verdict accordingly.
