Jamn Hotel Sh Takes Mor

Httie Root. young g rl about 20 years
of age, committed suicide at the St. James
botel last night by morp jine poisoning.
She bad been employed at tbe hotel as
diciog-room girl the past few weeks, and
although it was known to the help that
she had gentlemen callerH.it was not sup
posed from her actions tbal she had con
templated suicide. Shortly after 13
o'clock tbe cook, who occupied an ad
joining room, heard her iaoaning and at
once notified Landlord Ryan, and tbe
two proceeded to her room, where
tbe young girl was found stretched upon
ber bed in an unconscious con
dition, while beside ber were
a number of letters and a
box on which was written "morphine,
pnisoD." Horst von Koeckritz, the drug
gist underneath the hotel was immediate
ly notified and he at once summoned Dr.
Ludewig. Mr. von Koeckritz then went
up stairs and he together with Mr. Ryan
and wife worked with tae unfortunate
girl until the arrival of thj doctor 6hortly
afterward. The doctor administered an
t;dotes and applied a current to assist
respiration, but it was too late. The girl
became gradually weaker and at 2:35 life
A letter was found near by which had
evidently been written shortly before.acd
from which it would appear that there is
something connected with the case which
she did not care to have known. The
letter reads aB follows:
Dear Friksds: If I hive any, forgive
me for causing you this trouble, but life
is simply unbearable to an. I have no
friends nor home, and det.th is best for
me, Good-bje. Snould letter come for
me please bury it with me unopened and
fulfill the djini; wish of
After ber death Coroner Hawes was
immediately summoned aad impanneled
a iary consisting of Horst von Koeckritz
(foreman) T. J. Murphy, Caaxles R.
Wbeelan, Thomas J. Kormoyle, Capt.
George Long and John Slulqueen, and
tbe iDquest was held at ! o'clock this
Dr. Ludewig was the first witness ex
amined. Be testified ts to his being
called at about 1:0 o'clock to attend the
girl who bad evidently taken poison.
Witness administered the proper antidotes
and applied a current to assist respira
tion. The girl was in a a unconscious
condition and continued to grow weaker
until her death at 2:35 o'c.ock.
T. J. Ryan, proprietor of the hotel,
was tbe next witness exaxined and he
testified to being called by the cook and
finding tbe girl' in the cond.tion as above
staled, and having assisted in applying
restoratives. Witness also testified to a
conversation which he had with the girl
on Sunday last in which she referred to a
young man who was employed as a cook
at the Rock Island house, v. here she bad
previously worked, saying that he was
going away with the Ridtnin Rifles, and
that sbe did cot think be would return,
and adding that she did not think she
would wait for Lim.
Horst von Koeckritz. who was the last
witness, testified to being cii'fd as above
stated, and rendering what assistance be
The jury retired and Bhnrtly after re
turned a verdict that Uattie Root "came
to her death by poison adrainistered by
her own hand at Rock Island, at about
2 o'clock Aug. 11, 1891."
The young man to wboci the girl re
ferred was Charlie Browa who was a
cook at the Rok Island bouse at the
tiaie tbe girl worked there, and from let
ters which were found in tbe dead girl's
psssession, it would seem that mutual
admiration existed between the two. A
number of other letters among which was
one from one Cbauncey Davis, of Daven
port, and one from one Jim Repine, of
Springfield, III , were found.
Tbe case is a sad one. inasmuch as the
girl, it is reported, was of modest de
meanor, and was what might haye been
called good looking, and b:ing thrown
upon her own resources bad come among
strangers, where, in a momei.t of desper
ation, sbe had taken her own life. Mes
sages have been sent to tbe addresses in
her possession, and tbe body is at Whee
lan's undertaking room, awaking a reply
from the telegrams.
A telegram was received ttis afternoon
from C. B. Root, of Springfinld.the fath
er of the girl, containing instructions to
make the interment here. Ste will prob
ably be buried at tbe count j 's expense
unless Undertaker Wheelan succeeds in
gaining further information from her relatives.

A new disease having appeared in sev
eral sections of this state among cattle
within tbe last few weeks, causing much
loss to owners, from loss of flesh and
milk, and a few fatalities, the board of
live stock commissioners of Illinois, has
eaused an investigation of the disease to
bo made in several sections of the state.
by means of post-mortem examinations by
Dr. John Casewell, M. R. C. V. 8., state
Veterinarian, and Prof. A. H. Baker, of
the Chicago Veterinary College and as
sistant state veterinarian, with a view of
ascertaining the true nature of the diss
ease; ir possible, the cause, and the treat
ment necessary to effect a cure. The
results of these investigations, the symp
toms of the disease as observed, ante
mortem and post mortem, and tbe recom
mendations as to treatment are gtyen in
tbe following concise report of the veter
inarians to the board:
The disease manifests itself by the fol
lowing symptoms: Swelling of the muz
zle, soreness of the mourn and feet, dry
ing up of milk (in cow,.), loss of appe
lite or inability to eat, rapid loss of flesh,
soreness of the tongue two or three inches
np from the point, and sometimes pro
truding from the mouth, soreness of the
gums and nostrils, more or less discbarge
of mucous from the nose, which coagu
lates and accumulates partially closing
the openings. Tbe soreness of tbe feet
and legs seems to be in the skin, which is
swollen from tbe hoofs upward, in bad
cases nearly to the body and cracks in
transverse fissures at the fronts of hocks
and backs of knee3, and the animals are
inclined to lie down most of tbe time, or
are disinclined to move. At the time of
the swelling of 'the muzzle, there appear
little red dots which spread and run to
gether forming Drown patches, and in
this stage, desquamation (skin peeling
off) takes place leaving raw surfaces
which heal slowly
Tbe following evidences of disease are
seen on postmortem examination: Ex
tensive irritation of the lining of the
stomach aud bowels, and in bad cases
considerable infl-nomiiion of it. The
contents of the stomicb and bowels are
solft, from excessive secretion of mu
cous, which accounts for the diarrtcei
seen in macy of the more severe cases.
The other internal organs jrestnt no evi
dences of disease.
From what observations we have made,
it seems to us that this disease is not con
tageous, but due entirely to some acrid
substance which forms on, or within,
some plant which is taken in for food,
for only those parts ot the body which
come in contact with tbe food, either be
fore or af er it is eaten, are affected.
Tbe following treatment, which is yery
simple, seems to have a very beneficial
effect, even severe cases recovering rap d-
ly: Linseed oil (raw) in pint doses, three
times a day, until tbe bowels move freely
and for local application, a solution of
borax, as strong as water will dissolve it,
three times a day, applied to tbe mouth
aDl nose witb s sponge.
The animals while under treatment
should be kept under cover and fed on

There is only one way to cure deafness,
ami tnat is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an iifltraed condi
tion of the mucous ining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless lha im
flammation can be taken out and this
tube rtotv.red to its normal condition,
hciiric will be destroyed forever; nine
Cases out cf 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflimed condii
