Followed by an Angry Mob Who Will

OVER FIFTY TEESOKS POISONED
'By DrinWnc of lemonade That Was Made
From Sngar of Lead.
A BAD EXDLN'G TO A MEEET PICNIC
rtrECiAi. nixaiuji to the DisrJLrcn.i
Toeokto, Oxx., -June 25. The details
of a fearful story of criminal carelessness
hare arrived from "Woodstock. Fifty per
sons in the town are prostrated and IS are
not expected to live. The unfortunate
wretch to whose doorthis calamity is laid is
a would-be drucgist trho recently opened a
store in town, but now has fled to escape the
fury of the citizens whotbreaten if they
catch him to discount even Judge Lynch's
Woodstock is situated in the township of
Zorra. On Saturday the farmers of that
county gave a monster picnic in "Willit's
grove about two miles from the town. The
morning was cool and showery, and as a
consequence the refreshment booths were
badly patronized, few, if any partaking oM
the ice cream and lemonade, which had been
supplied by a Woodstock confectioner. In
the afternoon, however, the sun came out,
and toward evening the weather grew close
and sultry, and a great rush was made tor
cooling refreshments, the lemonade in par
ticular being consumed in large quantities.
AH was jollity until the picnickers were
about to start 'for home when suddenly a
Hiss Shaw, who was dancing on one of the
platforms, fell in a fit,
DISSIAY SUCCEEDS PLEASUEE.
Friends had hardly started to apply re
storatives when two young ladies were sim
ilarly seized. This sudden interruption of
the testivities caused very general alarm,
which was intensified to horror when almost
immediately others of the gathering to the
cumber of 50 were stricken, and lay rolling
on the sward in terrible acony. Several
doctors were with the picnickers, and these,
with others who were hastilv summoned
from the town, attended the sufferers.
Noting the symptoms the doctors at once
pronounced it a case of poisoning, llany
of the unfortunates were thought to be dy
ing. While the medical men administered
hot milk, mustard and other emetics at
hand, express wagons were brought out from
Woodstock, and in them the sufferers were
moved to their homes.
An investigation proved that only those
who had partaken of the lemonade had been
attacked, and the poisoning was readily
traced to this source. All day and this
morning the authorities were endeavoring
to find out how the poison came to get into
the lemonade, and this afternoon it was dis
covered that the confectioner who had
furnished the drink,in order to save lemons,
had used in its concoction what he believed
to be tartaric acid.
A PJJCAIi MISTAKE.
Fortunately some of the powder which he
had purchased irom the new druggist re
mained, and on examination it was found to
be "sugar oilead," which he had- sold in
mistake for the harmless ingredient The
news of this discovery quickly spread all
over the town. The rage of the townspeo
ple almost amounted to madness, which they
determined to vent upon Druggist Alexan
der, who was a stranger, having been only a
short time in the place.
A crowd quickly gathered and marched in
a body to his store. The shop was locked. A
plank was torn from the sidewalk and used
as a battering ram. The door was quickly
broken down and the maddened men en
tered. There was no "one in the store, but
this did not .decrease their rase, and in a few
minutes the stock in trade of the druggist
was scattered all over the street
Then a thorough search of the premises
was made to find the man who had unwit
tingly brought sorrow to so many happy
homes. The search was fruitless, however.
The house was empty, Alexander having
seen the angry crowd approaching had made
good his escape from a back entrance and
fled to the woods. Baffled at not finding
their intended victim the crowd proceeded to
demolish things' generally, and quickly
wrecked the entire premises.
CHASED Br THE MOB.
They would have gone further and
burned the building had not a rumor spread
that Alexander had been seen in another
part of thl town, where the whole mob
quicklv started to hunt for him. He was
not found, however. Although the majori
ty of those poisoned are slowly recovering
irom me enects 01 tne deadly mineral, 15 of
the number were this evening reported to be
dying, all being in a state of collapse, from
which all efforts of the physicians so far
have failed to revive them.
The names of those whose recovery is con
sidered impossible are as follows: Mamie
Shaw, aged 20; Sadie Hartnett, aged 22;
Alice Flynn, 16; Minnie Flynn, 19; Mrs.
McKaughton, 45; Mrs. McAlpin, 23 (only
married a week); Mrs. Sarah Smith, 38, and
her two daughters, Sarah, 11, and Minnie,
8; Edward Nolan, 19; James Shaw, 22:
John McKetcher, 24; Edward, Lewis, 17,
and John Shortel. 9
t Finding that Alexander had made his
escape, one of the citizens lodged a com
plaint against him,and a warrant was sworn
out for his arrest As he is thought to be
hiding in the woods back of Woodstock, a
number of specials were sworn in and sent
out to search lor and arrest him. A crowd
has started after the specials with the open
ly avowed intention of capturing the drug
gist and lynching him. Up to midnight to
night the unfortunate druggist had not been
caught nor had any deaths resulted from

Means 813,600 Per Week.
-The talkative barber's tongue was wagging
yesterday as usual. While the reporter was
half asleep In the barber's chair the knight of
the razor said:
'I wish I had all the money that is taken in
by the barbers of the two cities iu one week. I
would then take a holiday and go to Europe."
The reporter roused himself enoueh to ask
how much was taken in one week for shaves.
He replied that be used about 4U0 towels a
week in his shop.
In all the 840 shops In PitUburg and Alle
gheny it would average the same number,"
said he, "or 138,000 towels used in a week by all
the shops. As each towel means at least 10
cents to the barber: it wonld make the total
118,080 per week. Washerwomen also make
considerable In handling these towels."

It's a mistaken notion to
make a pack-horse of price in
It can't alter the quality or
turn inferior workmanship
into reliable. i
The strong point is Is
this- a tried and proved qual
ity? Is it known to be strong?
Is it made of the best and
choice materials? Will it give
me long and good wear?
That's the Wanamaker
rule. Quality is kept in the
foreground quality, wjthout
which dependable clothing
cannot get along.
Isn t that better than mak
ing all the hubbub over
Every reliable quality of
Serges and Thin Goods.
