CASE OF POISONED CANDY
STILL BEING DISCUSSED
The .Sherrard case of.' poisoned
candy is causing more or less agita
tio.n at Aledo, where L. .1). Tboui-
ason, attorney for Miss Dunlap," has
felt called on to reply to certain pub
lications which seemed to implicate
him in an attempt to create prejudice
in favor of Miss Dunlap, who is ac
cused of having poisoned Miss Allie
Dool at Aledo. If a Sherrard man
should procure poisoned candy at
liock Island, the inference would be
that it was not so very unusual f:r
poison to get into candy at the place
of manufacture or sale.
The Aledo Democrat has gone so
far as to say that on the morning of
Oct. 6 Attorney Thomasoii hail bought
25 cents' worth of strychnine in Ale
do, saying he wanted it for f-xperi-meutal
purposes. The evening of the
same day he registered at the Harper
house in Hock Island, and returned
to Aledo the morning of the Dth. "On
the 8th of October." continued the
Democrat's article. "Dr. .1. A. Mannon,
of Sherrard," registered at the Harper
house in Itoek Island, 111., and says
that on the next morning he bought a
pound of chocolate creams at the
store of L. S. McCabe Sr Co. in that
This article, in short, substantially
charged that Attorney Thomasoii
was the author of the Sherrard inci
dent. In reply Mr. Thomasoii
acknowledges having purchased
strychnine in Aledo on the tth. He
says he bought it at the request of
Attorney Searle for experimental
purposes. The same day he started
for Chicago by way of Kock Island.
Stopping off there in the evening he
delivered the strychnine to Mr. Searle
in a sealed envelope, never having
opened it. He then went to Chicago,
left Chicago the evening of the '.tth.
and arrived in Aledo the morning of
He did not hear of the Sherrard in
cident till his return to Aledo, when
Dr. Mannon telephoned him. Prior to
hearing from him by telephone that
day he had not seen or spoken to
Dr. Mannon since last spring, and had
no previous knowledge whatever of
the Sherrard incident.
After this charge in the Democrat
Thomsisoii again visited Mr. Searle in
Hock Island and found that Searle
had not yet opened the envelope con
taining the strychnine, as he had been
too busv in court. Thomasoii took the
strychnine again, and taking it back
to the Aledo druggist from whom he
had purchased it. the druggist identi
fied the envelope and the package as
the one that he had sold to Thomasoii.

The effect of certain lines in a play
is often a huge surprise, both to au

would not excite much comment in so
ciety circles, but when society sits in
the audience while droll-visaged com

gossip with all the dignity of pam

only gossip they hear is that of their

catarrh is not a local disease and it
cannot be cured simply by treating
the local symptom.
Moreover, the inore serious forms
of catarrh, like catarrh of the stom

applications, and the fact that neg

Stuart's Catarrh Tablets contain
