DEADLY POISON CAUSE OF
LUCIA SPEARMAN'S DEATH
She Drank Mariatic Acid by Mistake,
Thinking it Was an Alcohol So
The following is a Redondo Beach
special to a Los Angeles paper, in re
gard to the death of Miss Lucia
Redondo Beach, San. 30.-Miss Lu
cia Spearman, ward and niece of J. M.

and Power plant of this city, died at
the family residence corner of Emer

this afternoon from the effects of a
dose of muriatic acid accidentally self
She had been ill for the past three
months and on Sunday afternoon
about 2.30 she left her work of pre
paring a com.nposition on "cooking" for
her school work, went -across the hall
to the medicine ,cabinet in the bath
room and under the impression that
she was taking a dose of alcohol
swallowed about half -an ounce of mu
riatic acid which was in an unlabeled
bottle and kept for use as a disinfec
tant. E7erything. possible was done
to counteract the effect of the deadly
drug but she grew steadily worse un
til death ended rher suffering.
Miss Spearman,~ who was 17 years
of age was a junior student in the
Polytechnic High School of Los An
geles. She was a native of Newberry,
S. - C. Her father died seven years
ago and upon the death of her moth
er in 1909, Lucia being a delicate girl
came 'to make her 'home with her
mother's brother, J. M. Long, of Los
Angeaes, in the hope the change of
climate would be beneficial. The
Longs lived at 2821 North Griffin
avenue, Los Angeles, until the first
of November, when they came to Re
dondo it being the intention for Lucia
to enter Redondo High School at the
end of the year just closing.
The Long home here is one of the
lovediest in the city and Lucia's place
in it that of a dlearl,y-beloved only
daughter. So great being ,the affection
entertained for her in the home that
Mrs. Long is in a state of collapse
