Emily Mary Stone (1865–1910)

from Argus

As the result of a lamentable accident on Burwood-road Hawthorn, on Saturday morning Dr. Emily Mary Page Stone died early yesterday morning from the effects of the injuries she sustained.

Shortly before 11 o'clock Dr. Stone was cycling towards Glenferrie-road, and turned her head towards the footpath to speak to a friend. She unconsciously swerved to the wrong side of the road and collided with a jinker, in which was John Hughes of 146 Glasgow-street North Essendon. She was struck by the near side shaft and thrown to the ground beneath a passing tip-dray. The vehicle, however, did not pass over her. Dr. Stone was immediately taken to the residence of Mr. A. Dempster, where Dr. Balfour, of Hawthorn, attended her. He found that she was suffering from internal injuries and shock, while her right side was much bruised. Dr. Stone was taken to her home at Auburn, and was attended in the evening by Dr. Balfour and her cousin, Dr. Clara Stone, who was called in consultation. She passed a fairly good night, but at half-past 5 yesterday morning she suddenly collapsed, and died half an hour afterwards.

Dr. Mary Stone lived with her mother and younger sister, at St. Albans, Auburn-road Auburn, and her brother is Mr. Frank Stone, public analyst, of Collins-street. She had practised her profession in Melbourne for over 16 years. Dr. Stone graduated at the Melbourne University, and, after a brilliant course, obtained honours at the final examination. The fatality has been reported to the coroner (Dr. Cole).
