KILLED BY A WINCH-HANDLE.—Mr. Grenfell, the West Cornwall coroner, held an inquiry as to the death of Themas Prisk, a miner, who was killed at West Seton mine on Saturday last by a blow from a winch-handle. From the evidence of three witnesses it appeared that the deceased and others had gone to the 140-fathom level to charge the bucket, which they commenced to haul up. There were four of them at the winA, two on either side, but they were not strong enough to raise the backet above a certain distance. Finding this was so, they commenced to lower it, when suddenly the chain gave a surge and the handles of the winch were jerked out of the men's hands. The deceased was struck by one of the handles and knocked down the shaft, a distance of ten fathoms. When picked up he was bleeding from cuts in the face and neck, and died immediately. The jury returned a verdict of Acci- dental death," but were uncertain whether death was caused by the blow from the winch or the fall down the shaft. HOBNIMAN'S TEA, 40 years has been preferred.
