Man Found Dead.
(Press Association Telegram) Westport, February 9.
The body of a man was found by prospectors outside an old hut at the Britannia mine, Waimangaroa, to-day, and brought to town. It is understood to be that of George [sic] Bernard Arnold, of Waipukurau, a returned soldier, who was last seen over a fortnight ago going up to the mine, at which no work has been going on far some time. A note was left stating that he was in agony from ptomaine poisoning; after eating meat from a tin. He could stand the pain no longer, and was taking poison.
An inquest will be held.
