He took what ho supposed, to be Insect powder and scattered a quantity of it on the floor. Unknown to Mr. McGregor, the pow? der was rat poison, and was composed for the most part of arsenic. The dry substance impregnated the atmosphere, and was inhaled freely by Mr. Mc Gregor. He felt no ill-effects, however, until Tuesday morning, when his eye-lids . began to swell. Soon other portions of ?his body began to enlarge, and iu a short time he was forced to take to his bed, his condition vapidly becoming very scrlcus. His friends, becoming alarmed, sent for Dr Davis, nnd the latter, after ex? amination, diagnosed the vast- as one of chronic arsenic poisoning.

For three days and a like number of nights the physician scarcely left his patient's bed-side. His efforts were crowned with suc? cess.
