An examination of the organs Is now under way." ' Dr. W. o; Stevens, a medical expert, today made this positive declaration: "Six hundred and sixty-two grains of strychnine' easily would kill 662 persons. The maximum dose administered Is only one-,flfteenth of a grain, while the average ,is one-fortieth of a grain." Louis / Falkenau, who made the analysis of the mineral water drank by Mrs. Stanford last January, and which was poisoned with strychnine, said today: "Strychnine in bicarbonate of soda cannot be detected easily. Soda has a crystalline appearance and looks some thing like strychnine. It would require an expert to detect the presence of strychnine, but It could be done.". The finding of the large amount of strychnine in the bicarbonate bottle puzzles Mrs. . Stanford's relatives and attorneys In this city. Mountford S. Wilson, chief counsel for her,, and 'C. O.
