KOCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 14. Justice
Arthur M. Mace, of Rockvllle, acting as
coroner, will conduct an inquest at Ken
sington today over the bodies of Lucy
and John Pratt, colored, aged eighteen
months and four jcars, respectively,
children of Zachariah Pratt, who were
burned to death in their home near Ken
sington late Wednesday night. After
making an investigation yesterday.
Sheriff Howard and Judge Mace sum
moned a Jury to meet today.
While the children were asleep, their
bed caught fire, and when their mother,
who was asleep In the room, awoke the
bed was in flames, and the children ap
parently dead. The mother ran across
the road for assistance, and the neigh
bors who responded succeeded in saving
the building. The mother thinks the
bed caught Are from a stove.
Hilary SImms, colored, who was
brought to his home near Rockvllle Sun
day from Georgetown in a critical con
dition as a result of burns and other
injuries mysteriously received, died yes
terday morning. The attending physi
cian, Dr. George E. Lewis, inclines to
the belief that the man's death was
due to carbolic acid, and that the burns
on his legs were caused by such acid.
It is thought the man may have met
with foul play in Washington, and the
Washington authorities were notified by
State's Attorney Spates.
Detective Vermillion, of Washington,
was In Rockvllle yesterday making an
investigation. He talked with Dr. Lewis
and others and from what he gathered
he thought an autopsy should be held
and ordered Dr. Lewis to perform it to
day. Something happened to SImms in
Georgetown about ten days ago, but just
what it was, or wno. caused it, simms
was unable to tell State's Attorney
Spates and Sheriff Howard, who. went to
see him; immediately upon being noti
fied of' his condition. The iron was
brought to his home on the farm of M.

relative who received- a letter from
Washington informing him of SImm's

Think this over: MI-O-NA stomach
(,Hoi nro comDounded from a physl-
uleian's prescription, which is a better
prescription than 90 per cent of the
doctors in America know how to write.
When your stomach rebels, kicks up

in mlserv and even agony, you can t
always leave your work and go to a
physician. r
But you can always have in. your
pocket a box of MI-O-NA Stomach

banish the pain and relieve the entire
body from that miserable feeling that
makes living almost unbearable.
Put one or. two MI-O-NA Tablets, in
to your stomach and they will do ex
actly what nature Intends the healthy
stomach to do; digest your food, stop
fermentation and supply your blood
with the pure, nutritious matter that
is essential to good health.
