    Jew's Two Wives. The adjourned inquest was held on SIMON MENDEL YULES, a tailor, of Leeds whose funeral was postponed by the Coroner. Two women claimed the body for burial, the first wife whom he had married according to Jewish Law in 1878, and whom he had deserted, and the woman, Magdalene Bishop, whom he married in 1908 according to English Law. After a consultation with two solicitors, the Coroner said he would be loath to do anything that would mean burying as a Christian one who had never forsaken the Jewish faith. He announced that he would hand over the body to the first wife, in order that there might be a Jewish burial. He thought that the second woman ought to be reimbursed for any funeral expenses incurred, and an agreement to that effect was made. The Coroner said It was abundantly clear that Yules had died from natural causes, despite the statement which he made as he was on the point of dying. The jury returned a verdict to that effect. The body was subsequently burled at the Gildersome Jewish Cemetery. (The case was reported in our issue of the 18th inst.)
