Child Dead from Poison
Lucille, the four year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William D.J. Johnson
of Cabot Station, died Saturday afternoon from strychnine poisoning.
The little child, playing about the house found a box of the tablets
which had been used in former sickness, and ate several of them.
Medical aid was summoned quickly and everything possible was done to save
the child's life but to no avail. The tablets were well hidden and
it is a mystery how the little hands sought them out.
Mr. Johnson is an employee of the Hope Natural Gas Company at Cabot
Station and with his family has lived here since the plant was put in operation
several years ago. He and his excellent wife have the sympathy of
the community in their tragic loss.
Funeral services were held at the home of the parents by Rev. Albert
Smith and interment was made in Bethlehem cemetery Monday afternoon.
