street, tins been trying to learn
since noon yesterday whether he
was drugged or hypnotized. He
had an odd experience, and sutier
ed symptoms of being poisoned,
but has apparently recovered from
the etlects of his plight.
In a dazed and stupefied condi
tion. he was discovered rfbout noon
locked in his place of business
girl called at the dairy, and finding
tile door securely closed, she noh
hed Mr. Pen nock's father, who
made an investigation, lie had to
force open the door to g;
trance.
Mr. Pennock was weak aud he
could scarcely walk, and racked
with pains, as n he had been poi
soned. As there were indications
that he had been poisoned an
emetic w.is administered, and he
improved in a short time. lie said
that about l ) o'clock a stranger en
tered the place and asked him to
have a drink. This lie declined,
but after that he had no recollec
tion ot what happened. He does
not recall of any drug being gives
lo him, or other intlu-*
en used to stupefy him. He
not remember a single thing that
occurred after lie declined the
stranger's invitation,
Robbery cojild not have been the
motive ot the caller, for Mr. Pen
nock had a valuable watcii aud
chain and rings with turn, but they
were undisltired. The key with
which he locked the dears of the
place of business is misssmg. how
ever. and it is supposed lh.it with
