A verdict awarding William Mess

court Tuesday night by the jury in the
case of William Messbargar vs. Dr. W.
E. Wallace. Both parties to the case
are from Burlington Junction. Dr.
Wallace is a physician and druggist at
that place and Mr. Messbargar a farmer
living west of there. Messbargar
brought suit against Dr. Wallace some
time ago for $10,000 damages, alleging
that Dr. Wallace or someone in his em
ploy at the drug store had sold Mess
bargar corrosive sublimate, a poison, in
stead of calomel, which Messbargar had
called for. The substance, it was al
leged, was labeled "calomel" and a large
quantity of it was taken by Mr. MesB
bargar with the result that he was
made seriously sick, and it was alleged
in the petition, his life endangered.
