The negro boy visited a white boy living near the Northern Cemetery, and tasted medicine which was administered for chills to the white boy. It had the taste of whiskey, and the negro boy took a heavy dose and died almost instantly. He went into the yard, fell prostrate, and died while being carried into the house. The boy's body smelled fearfully after a short time, and his most intimate acquaintances could not recognize him an hour after his death. The Coroner was sent for and it is expected he will hold an inquest over the body. We learn that the white boy is also in a dangerous condition, and fears are entertained that he cannot live. The matter should be thoroughly investigated, and the druggist and physician concerned be compelled to clear their skirts or suffer.
