GIRL TAKES POISON
MAY BUTT DIES FROM
DOSE OF STRYCHNINE.
First Reported That She Had Recov.
ered, But She Relapsed.-! n to a Stu
por and Death Soon Followed No
One of the saddest deaths that it
has been the duty of the East Oregon
ian to record for several months is
that of Miss May Butt, the 13-year
old daughter of Jacob butt nnd the
adopted daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.
C. Morse, who lives 20 miles south
of Pendleton, on McKay creek.
Last Thursday Miss Butts swallow
ed a dose of strychnine and within a
few minutes was in a serjous condi
tion. Mr. Morse came tc town for a
physician, but owing to the roughness
of the roads and the late hour no one
ventured to go that night Friday
morning Dr. T. M. Henderson started
to go to Mr. Morse's place, but when
within a few. miles of the house he
was met by Dr. J. C. Shields, of Pilot
Rock, who told him there was no need
for him going further, as he had just
come from attending the girl and she
was then better and apparently out
of danger. Miss Butt .vaa very much
better and It was thought, to be on the
road to recovery, but Saturday morn
ing she jvent into a stupor, and died
at 2 o clock in the afternoon.
No cause can be obtained for the
rash act, as the girl had been in the
best of spirits and there is no knowl
edge of her having had trouble with
any one or that she contemplated do
ing such a deed. She was rational
after taking the poison ?nd said she
did not know why she took it
The body was brought to town Sun
day evening, arriving here about 8
o'clock and was taken to Falling's un
dertaking parlors from where the fu
neral was conducted today.
Mr. 3ult, the father of the girl, ar
rived this morning from his home near
There Are Rumors, Too.
It was rumored that Miss-Butt had
been mistreated by her foster parents
and this was the cause of her wanting
to ena ner me, but Coroner Cole has
made a thorough investigation and
found that there is no foundation for
the story. He intended to hold a post
mortem examination of the body this
morning, but after thoroughly ques
tioning those who were familiar with
the girl and her surroundings he was
satisfied that there was no reason to
believe she had been ill treated, so the
body was interred this forenoon in
the Pendleton cemetery.
WATER RESERVOIR CLEANED
This Accounts for the Odor Arising
from the City Water.
A great deal has been said recently
about the city water and there were
good grounds for complaint, for dur
ing the past week it has had a very
objectionable taste and the odor aris
ing from it was quite strong,
especially when the water is being
heated. Saturday Water Superind
ent Brown had the reservoir cleaned
out thoroughly and the story was
started that all kinds of filth was
found therein, but he says this re
port has no foundation, and that the
only thing found in the water was a
lew boards and sticks which had been
thrown in by children and the natural
collection of moss and dirt that will
collect In an open reservoir. The wa
ter was all let out and the bottom
swept and thoroughly cleaned, and
it again filled with fresh water, and
Health Officer Cole, as well as Super
intendent Brown, says that the cause
of the odor and taste fs from the fact
that the water has stood in all winter
and become stagnant Heretofore,
during the winter season, the water
was allowed to run from pipes over
town to keep from freezing and this
Kept the water in the reservoir con
tinually changing, but during the past
winter so much of this was not done,
because people were paying at meter
rates for the-amount used, so that the
water aia not change, as usual.
Health Officer Cole advises users of
the City water to boil it before drink
ing, and in this way any disease germ
mat migiit be In It will be killed and
there will not be so much sickness as
lr the water was used as It is.
