ginger ale by a local conoern, whose

.- . empty bottles were taken back to the

The bottle is next placed 'la .a -tank

that it is practically 'impossible tnat
any trace of the poison would remain
in -a bottle which had held It and which
had been passed through, this cleansing
process.- ' , . . ' !'
Furthermore, .cyanide ,' of potassium
works a cbangs In the color of ginger
ale, giving it a dark, muddy tinge .utter
ly unlike its natural appearance. : The
change "may not take place for some
hours If the bottle la not -exposea to
the tight, but even If a bottle An which
poison has accidentally been Wf t had
been .taken on the' day It was' refilled
from' the works to. Van Dran's saloon. It
would have changed color by 1 o'clock
at night, when he left for home, -t i
. -I am sure that neither .of ths pot
tles I took home 'that Thursday nrght
could havo been discolored." said Van
Dran to me, "for I took them out of the
case and wrapped' them -up myself. It
Is second nature with me to look at ant-
tblng.of that kind, f Of If It Is bad I
want ta retura. K to the factory." '-
t Assuming that Van - Dran tells the
truth, - it Is certainty- Improbable that
hlflL trained eye would have failed to note
a difference in "the appearance . of the
contents pf the two bottles.'' The ginger
ale, of which Mrs. Van Dran drank
part Is so dark as to Instantly attract
attention and doubtless would have ex
cited her suspicion but for the fact that
she and her sister , were In a dimly
lighted pantry, 80 feet from a gas Jet..

the poison may have been In the bottle
when it - came " front the. factory seems
untenable- :. .. -" .... ,:v', ...; :'.

In view of the almost Inevitable con.
elusion , that It - is a oase of ' murder.
there were certain obvious things which
should have been done bv the nolloa.
The first step, and one Invariably taken
by trained detectives was to-examine
every person who might In any war be
connected with the tragedy and t re
duce his or her testimony to 'writing.
The Importance of securing this record
of tha statements of Innocent witnesses
wnue tne racts are still fresh In their
recollection cannot be overstated. . The
Importance of a statement bv.chs annr-
derer, before he has had time to man-
nracture- nis derense, la supreme. '

For days after the tragedy It was the

tne principals in the crime, -yet . no
watch was kept oa the movements - of
either, . When asked where they , were
living the. detectives . confessed their

asked whether It would have been pos

If the ginger ate had .been axamlned
Immediately after 'Mrs. Van. Dran's
death It might, have afforded a clue
which would have narrowed the Held
of Inquiry-so closely as to render de
tection of the criminal almost certain.
Prominent physicians, skilled In toxl
cology say that within 21 hours at most
after the cyanide of potassium was
placed In the bottle the ginger ale would
have changed . color. If, therefore, tha
ginger ae still : retained Its .natural
coor ah. hour or 'two after Mrs. Van
Dran's death It wduld be well nigh con
clusive evidence that the poison had
been placed In the bottle, some time that
day. And since Mrs,' Van Dran was at
bom all of Saturday, until I o clock In
the' evening, when she went out walk
ing, with her. stater, the .. probability
would be atronarthat It was In her ab
sence that the poisoned liquid was
placed la th bottle. ,
Tet neither the coroner nor th de
tectives -seem to have realised th lm
porta nc pf ascertaining the color of
the ginger ale on that Saturday night.
and the only, authentic Information on
this point dates from the Sunday even
ing following, 24 hours' after the crime,
whea the . ginger- al wea.. chemically

Three of the. peacocks were killed and
eaten by rats and one of tha turkeys

the drake, the peacock and two turkey.
