Uut the Stomach Pump Proved It u Ftilse Alarm. Ltz!. Murray of Clajton, a 21-year-old girl, created great excitement at the City Hospltal jeaterday afternoon, both on ac eount of a supposed poisoning, of which she thought she was the victim, and on account of the manner of her arrival. She was found lving on the sidewalk at the corner of Seventeenth and Pine streets by Otlieer Lang and was hurriedly carried into tho hospital for treatment. The stomach pump, however, revealed the fact that she had t iken nothing more dangerous than a mild .dative. The girl had called at the Dispensary earlier in the day to receive treatment there for a mild stomach trouble. A bottle of med icine was given her with tho directions to take a teaspoonful every hour. An attack of cholera coming on shurtly after she left the Dispens.tr, the girl adopted heroic meas ures and swallowed the entire contents ot the bottle. As was natural, the medicine made It ef fects felt, and she became convinced that the turmoil In her midst was caused by poison. Al irmed by the idea, she fell at tha corner of Seventeenth nnd Pine streets and was carried Into the hospital by Ofticer Lang. She had become convinced by thi3 time that she was in a dangerous condition and only returned feeble answers to tho questions asked her by the hospital staff. It was thought best to pump hr out immedi ately, the circumstances seeming to Indi cate an attempt at suicide, and the stomach pump was accordingly brought into use. The operation of siphoning fully restored her, and when the tube was removed from her throat she produced the bottle, which contained a remnant of the medicine. To the disgust of the stalt it was found that it was nothing more dangerous than a very mild Eedatlvc, which might have made her a littlo sick, but could not possibly have resulted fatally. She was accordingly dismissed. HE LONGED TO RETURN HOME. Little Carl Caesar's Explanation of a Theft.
