N. H. Young, of York, made a fatal mistake last Thursday night in taking carbolic acid instead of whiskey. He had been to Loyal that day and brought home a bottle of whiskey which he put up in the house near a bottle of acid which had been there some time. He arose in the night, drank about four ounces of the acid at one swallow and lived about four minutes. He was a carpenter by trade and worked about a year in the city with G. W. Montgomery. He leaves a wife and several children.
