      The circumstances surrounding the death of a woman, Jessie Mary Dalgleish, who was found dying in her flat in King Street, Covent Garden, London, on Friday night, were investigated by the Westminster Deputy Coroner yesterday.
      When the maid returned from shopping it is stated that she observed her mistress in great pain. The woman was taken to hospital and found to be suffering from poisoning, from the effects of which she subsequently died.
      Nellie Dalgleish, of Manchester, identified the boday as that of her sister, who was 32 years of age. Witness understood that she was married.
      The Coroner's officer remarked that this was a mistake. The woman, the officer said, was the victim of a bigamous marriage some years ago and was not legally wed.

      A marriage with a young woman whom he had met at a dance in Birmingham five days before, was mentioned at the Old Bailey yesterdaywhen Sidney Bowman, aged 29, a broker, was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment in the second division for bigamy and theft.
      After the marriage, said Mr. Arthur Bryan, who appeared for the prosecution, the copule stayed at an hotel in Birmingham, and on the pleas that he had no change the husband left the bride to pay the bill.
      They went to Claridge's Hotel in London, and a few days later, as she thought he had deceived her, the bride left and went to Brussels with he friends.
      He followed, and suggested that a divorce should be arranged in America.
      She gave him £70, and he appeared to have gone to America, but nothing came of the visit.
      Six months later - in October last - Bowman went through the marriage ceremony with a Miss Dalgleish, who stated that he was kind to her and that she had lived happily with him.
