Lust Thursday morning, while
Mrs. \\\ II. Peters was preparing
sonic eggs for cooking,-she noticed
a tiny bolo rn thc shell ol' one ol'
ibo eggs. She broke the egg in a
sep?rale vessel and examined it
closely. She found some little

She kept the egg in this con
dition, and showed it lo her hus

Mrs. Peters bought the egg,
with others, from the grocery

She asks them to sase fresh, coun
try eggs foi* her, and they were
brought to the store from thc coun
try. The .Messrs Rogers have no

came from, however, as they had
been buying (>"'gs from Various

lt is not believed that the
strychnine was put in the egg for
thc purpose of harming ahybo ly,

The most plausible theory is
that somebody put tho strychnine
in thc egg to kill a suck-egg dog,
and then forgot about, or else
some other member of thc family
gathered il up with others andi
brought it to town.
Another theory is that some

entirely innocent in the matter.
