Some time during the night she took
three ounces of carbolic acid. The oth

done, and physicians were called and
did all they could to counteract the
effects of the poison, but in vain. The
woman died early this morning. Be

Members of Party Must Travel as Indi

The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
Railroad company and the committee
of the National Good Roads associa
tion parted company at Galesburg Mon
day. Just exactly the trouble between
the C, B. & Q. and the good roads as-!
sociation cannot be learned, but it is
said the Burlington did not approve of
the association's representatives tax
ing the cities J150 each for the privi
lege of entertaining a few good roads
speakers and experts, nor approve of
the speakers urging the purchase of
10-ton rollers, graders and other road
implements, and held that when the
model road is built under direction of
the association, the city has to pur
chase certain tools and implements ,
made by certain firms, or even if this
is not demanded, every attempt is
made to sell the same to adjoining
townships. The Burlington considered
the whole proposition one of graft and
an endeavor to line the nockets cf

roads orators and committees.

to make the best of their way as indi
