FARMER SUFFERS GREAT LOSS
WHEN HORSES FED POISON IN
UNKNOWN WAY LOSS OVER
$1,006 While J. O. Marshall and family
were visiting relatives over Sunday,
at M. Battenhous', near Argyle, his
horses were given par's green in their
grain early Sunday morning. The fact
that it was unknown to any member
of the family that the deadly poison
was on the place, shows that it had
probably been there for a few years,
as Mr. Battenhous had only lived/
there since last spring. Had it been
daylight, Mr. aBttenhous would have*
noticed it by the. color, b^t not sus-f
pecting anything, fed them in the us-r
ual way. By the time they were all!
fed and the basket empty, he noticedf
something dark in color, in the basket!
and when going to the light, found it]
resembled parts green. Then he|
started at once to get it away fromT
the horses. By the time the last grainj
was taken, gave the first ones fed, a|
chance to get more of the poison, asi
it was so plentiful that the feed boxesJ,
looked as if they had been painted. Ai
veterinary from Argyle was called ax&
once, but the. horses showed no signs?
of'the poison, and appeared well asj[
usual, all day, 'but refused to eat}
their grain, so it was thought, theyj
didn't get enough paris green to hurt!
them During the next night, the*
fatal dose began to act, taknig first
one and then another. S,,
Two young cattle--ffiaf'""had"" bee
turned out of the barn dnring the^
night unfortunately, picked UP a. littl^
and are numbered among the rest.
Mr. Battenhous's horses were atU
taken, except a small driving team*}
and pony, also Mr. Marshall was the
loser of his best team. i
The loss is estimated about $1100
