--George H. Myer
, a tinner, fell from the seventh story of a building in Cincinnati
, on Wednesday last, and was instantly killed.
As the Coroner
was empanneling the jury, a most affecting scene occurred.
His wife, frenzied with the news of her sad bereavement, rushed into the store, on the floor of which was the prostrate form of her deceased husband, and throwing herself upon the body, and entwining her arms around the blackened and dislocated neck, she uttered a wail, so full of sorrow and despair, as would cause the most unsympathetic hearts to quicken or eye to overflow.
The poor woman's grief was so violent and so inconsolable, and her appeals to be allowed to remain with the body so pathetic, that the Coroner
found it necessary to adjourn the inquest until the afternoon.
