The young son of Dr. James, a
prominent physician of Greer, died
early Monday morning in most ex?
cruciating agony. The father hur?
riedly leaving home yesterday after?
noon accidentally dropped a bottle of
morphine on the porch floor and the
little fellow picked it up and, when
discovered by his mother, had eaten
the greater part of the contents of
the bottle. A physician was quickly
summoned and a stomach pump ap?
plied. The poisoning had advanced
too far to be overcome.
