Mrs. Winn, Who Was Thrown Under Coach, Never Recovered Consciousness.

NEWPORT, R. I., June 27.--Mrs. Henry Winn, of Malden, Mass., one of the club women from the Boston convention who was injured by the overturning of a tally-ho coach while on a pleasure excursion here yesterday, died today without recovering consciousness.

Mrs. Winn's was the second death among the club women during their visit to this city, Mrs. Sarah Shute, of Coon Rapids, Iowa., having died yesterday from heart disease.

Mrs. Bennett F. Davenport, Watertown, Mass., and Mrs. Helen C. Sundean, Lincoln, Neb., the only others whose injuries were considered serious, passed a comfortable night and have a good chance for recovery.
