Results of Kicks In the Stomach

the stomach by a horse Friday night

The case Is aggravated by the fact
that the man's stomach was In a bad
condition before the Injury as the re

ivo doses of poison.
Some time ago .rfrs. I'arrish filed
a suit for divorce against her hus
band, alleging cruel and Inhuman
treatment nnd failure to provldo for
herself and family. This seemed to
hare a saddening effect on the man,
who, after some consideration on tho
subject, took a large dose of lauda
num and Bweet oil. As soon as he
had taken the poison a physician was
called and bis stomach was pumped
nut until he suffored no III effects
from his unusual dose.
Mr. Parrlsh was cot satisfied with
his attempt, however, and took an
other dose, though he substituted car
bolic acid for the sweet oil in the
second test of the durability of his
stomach. This time bo was in a se
rious condition, and a man was dls-
