      Death of Mr. Arthur Scott

      Body Found With Throat Cut

      This morning on receipt of information Sergeant Innes of the local police proceeded at once to the Bogan Gate road, about 3 miles from town, and discovered the body of Mr. Arthur Scott lying on a bed in his home with his throat cut. Life was extinct. So far full particulars of the sad happening are not available but it transpires that on Mrs. Scott visiting the room at about 7 o’clock this morning, she made a dreadful discovery.

      Deceased, who was well and favourably known in Forbes, where he had spent most of his life, leaves a widow and six children, the eldest of whom is only 16 years of age.

      The Coroner will hold an enquiry on Monday next.

      Notes from Coroner’s enquiry:

      The late Mr. Arthur Scott whose tragic end was reported in the last issue was born at Carrawobitty near Forbes. His life was insured for one 100 pounds.

      At the inquest Dr. Delohery outlined his findings and said the deceased had been under his care for an injury to his leg following a fall. Deceased had also complained of stomach pains and pains in his head and he found him in a very depressed state. His throat had been cut with a razor.

      His wife, Jessie Martha Scott also gave evidence. She had arisen at 4-30 am. to do the milking and had given her husband a glass of milk to drink. When she returned to the house she made the gruesome discovery and had sent her children to neighbours to get the doctor. The eldest boy was 15 years, then daughter Thelma Scott aged 14 years. Another sister Leila. They had a family of six children living and 2 deceased.
