A MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR.
Persistent Efforts to Poison Mrs. Hiram
Smith and Famity at Coburg,
Our readers will will remember an
account published recently of attempts
to take the life of Mia. Hiram Smith,
ol Coburg, by means of poison. Sinco
that time, aays -the' Eugene Guard,
several more attempts have been made
to accomplish the same purpose by
some unknown perron, but so far un
successfully, though Mrs. Smith and
her family have beeu thrown into a
constant state of the greatest ' fear by
the repeated and persistent efforts of
their persecutor to take their lives. In
the last visits made by the person who
would have the Jives of Mrs. Smith
and her family, he left anonymous
notices of warning, in wiiicii lie makes
the threat that he will continue to
visit the premises until he accomplishes
his object. He also predicts dire pun
ishment for the family after death.
Mrs. Smith is the widow of the late
Hiram Smith, of Hurrlshurg, a man
who was quite wealthy and prominent
in social and political life. He owned
large tracts of land below Coburg, and
at oue time was a cnr.didute for con
gress. He has beeu dead for a num
ber of years. Mrs. Smith is now aged
73 years and lives on a farm about four
north of Coburg. She never had any
children of her own, but had four
adopted children. She has residing
with her the four orphan children of
one of ber adopted sons, who is dead.
The first attempt to poison Mrs.
Smith was made about ten years ago.
Recently two more attempts were
made, of which au account was pub
lished a few weeks ago.
On last Tuesday another attempt
was made to administer poison to the
family. Some unknown person visited
the house during the day ami left some
kind of powder on top of the jars of
milk. Mrs. Smith does not know
what the powder was, but thinks it
waa some kind nf r o'tson that is used
to destroy rats und squirrels. On this
visit the person left two notes. They
read as follows:
NOTE NO. 1.
"Done by an unkii iwn friend. I in
tend to kill you all . My name will
not May hell punish you g
d you. You all, I will kill you
all. M. A. E. 8. F. S. V. S. C. 8. L.
NOTK NO. 2.
"Done by an envious friend, and
will come again. Have hten five times
already; g d you tolka." '
On the afteruoou o: the next day the
unknown person again visited the
premises and put another kind of pow
der In the cream in Uie pantry. lho
powder was of a whnlsh color, looked
like soda and tasted like concentrated
lye. On this visit two more notices
were left as follows:
note no. 3.
"The ones we want to kill Is Hiram
Smith, L. Smith, Mary Smith, Clara
NOTE NO. 4.
"I am coming again; this Is done by
one you will never know. God Is
building the fire for you now, g
On the days that the above notices
and the supposed poison were left, Mrs.
Smith and the two little girls were left
alone at the farm, the young men
Leet and Hiram being absent on
business. Judging from the way note
No. 3 reads it would stem that the un
known party only desired to take the
lives of the four orphan children who
live with Mrs. Smith.
Thursday the family persecutor
again gullied admittance to the prem
ises, unseen by any one, and scattered
poison about in the well and watering
troughs and in the gialn bin. Thwart
ed thus far in his efforts to take the
Uvea of tbe members of the family,
this mysterious individual now seems
determined to poison the stock ou the
raneb. The family now live lu con
stant terror, not knowing what min
ute their property may be destroyed or
their lives taken by tills unseen enemy
who from the very (iendlshiiess of his
actions, must be some person who Is
bordering on the brink of insanity.
