Gave Her Poison
Miss Martha Klawinski is sick with typhoid fever at her home near Poiatowski. One day last week the attending physician sent her a large bottle of disinfectant, composed principally of corrosive sublimate and a jar of beef tea, with instructions for using the beef tea.
Miss Klawinski’s attendents gave her two teaspoonsful of the disinfectant instead of administering the beef tea. The patient immediately vomited up the deadly poison but next morning another dose was given to her, which was likewise vomited up. The girl is in a dangerous condition, but even yet may pull through
