WAS SHE POISONED?
Did She Poison Herself, or Did She Die
for the Want of Poison?
Wai the Quettlon Settled by an Antopsy of tho
Body of a Pauper by Drt. Fiegenbaum
and Bollock Isit Monday.
About two yenrs ago a woman by the
name of Ann Mlrlah Owens, aged about
66 years, camo to tho Poor Farm where
she has made her homo ever since, un
til last Monday, when sho suddenly
died. Her hiuband is also an luiuatu
of the Poor Farm, nnd it seems that
both husband and wlfo were habitual
ami confirmed opium caters. This de
testable habit was a source of continued
trouble and annoyance to the proprietor
of tho farm, Mr. Kolmcr. Their opium
would nt times become exhausted when
they would resort to petty thieving and
steal anything thoy could lay hands on
to obtain tho much desired urtlele. On
last Friday, their supply having again
become exhausted, tho woman Informed
Mr. Kolmcr, the landlord, that sho
would cither bo compelled to have opi
um or die. Mr. Kolmcr told her he
could not furnMi her any more and
sincerely hoped sho would die. Noth
ing nunc was thought of this until
Monday morning when tho woman sat
down at tho breakfast table and seemed
apparently well, drank a cup of tea and
went to her room. But sho had no
sooner got thero when she was suddenly
seized with cramps, threw herself on
tho bed nnd commenced screaming.
Mr. Kolmcr immediately rushed to tho
scene and took her a quantity of opium,
thinking it would relievo her. She told
him it was too late ; his wish would now
bo gratified and that she was going to
die, whereupon shu threw her head
back and soon breathed her last. Tho
Midden milliner in which "lie died and
tho mysterious circumstances surround
ing her death caused "somo suspieloii,
audDr. vilson, thif County Physician,
concluded to have an uutopsy made of
tho body. Drs. Fiegenbaum and Bul
lock were consulted, and it was decided
that they make a pot murium examina
tion. So about thrco o'clock on Mon
day evening, Drs. Fiegenbaum nnd
Bullock, Mr. Kolmcr, and a represen
tative of Tub Col'.ntv Papkii, repaired
to the Poor Farm whore the body lay.
The body was taken from tho bed nnd
placed on two long boards, laid sldo by
side on a large box In the middle of the
room. It was a horrible sight for tho
reporter, but the doctors seomeil to be
in all their glory, and commenced carv
ing up tho corpse as though it was an
uvery day pastimo with them. Tho first
liscovory made on tho body was thattnc
lower half of the trunk and upper third
f tho limbs showed cvldenco of cica
tiiz.tion, caused from a burn, but upon
further examination nothing startling
was revealed. Aside from tho fact
that all tho internal organs wero in a
softened eonditlon.tho spleen was found
enlarged and softened; thero was no
valvular Uiseaso of the heart found nnd
that organ seemed to bo in a healthy
stato; tho lungs were also healthy and
in u normal condition. Tho stomach
was then taken out and placed In nlco
hoi, where tho ingredients contained
therein can bo analyzed whenever the
authorities demand It The brain was
noxt examined and also found to bo in
a healthy stato and showed no signs ot
tho deceased havlnatalen her own life.
In fact after a complete and thorough
lixnniinnllon tho doctors eamu to tho
"conclusion, that tho patient having been
addicted 'to thi! constant use ot opium
for so long a time, and being deprived
of it for tho length of time stated above,
tho craving anil morbid appetite which
naturally overcamo tho deceabcd's will
poiver, caused her death.
