from Gunnisluke. in Cornwall. Mrs.
Lean, wife of the landlord of the Tavi
stock hotel, gave birth to her tenth child,
and sho subsequently died. The doctor
gave it as bis opinion that the baby
wonld not live, and soon afterward the
relatives applied to him for a certificate,
saying that it had succumbed. The lit

and the coffin was screwed down. On
Saturday, when preparations were being
made for the fnneral, the hnsband was
startled by bearing the cry of a child.
The undertaker was sent for, and on
opening the coffin found that the baby
was alive. Later the same day the child
was once more pronounced to be dead,

being buried and ordered it to be
wrapped in blankets for a few days.
