Little Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde White, of Rogersville, Meets With Sad Death.

As a a result of eating a strychnia tablet, Louise White, the fourteen months' old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde White, of Rogersville, died, Monday afternoon, about 4 o'clock.

Some strychnia tablets had been placed in the drawer of a dresser in the White home and about noon Mr. White in hunting for fishing hook which were in the drawer carelessly tossed some articles on the floor. It is thought the tablets were thrown out among the other things. About two o'clock the child was taken violently ill. Dr. Frank S. Ullom, of Waynesburg was called, but all efforts to save the child's life proved futile and its death occurred about two hours later. In looking about the room some strychnia tablets were found on the floor and it is thought the child had picked up and eaten one or more of the tablets.

Besides the parents, one brother, Harold, aged 3 years survives. The funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon. Interment in the Fordyce cemetery at Bluff.

Waynesburg Republican, July 15, 1915 (Waynesburg, Pennsylvania)
