      SWALLOWED STRYCHNINE
      An Old Lady's Mistake Who Had Been Taking A Sleeping Powder
      San Diego, Cal April 22 - Mrs. Dorcas Antle, who has been living with her son, Dr. Antle, on the old Richardson place, at Chula Vista, took a dose of strychnine by mistake at 9 o'clock Saturday night and she died in great agony 30 minutes later. She was in the habit of taking a sleeping powder upon retiring but upon this occasion took a strychnine powder from a shelf and swallowed it. A son, a physician heard her screams and at once suspected she had taken poison. He administered an emetic, which had some effect, but a subsequent convulsion occured and ended in death. The deceased was 62 years of age, a widow, and came here a few months ago from Petersburg, Ill., to live with her son.
