TOWN IN A PANIC
Two More Deaths Result from the
Sabula (Ia.) Poisoning
DES MOINES, Ia., Oct 8. - The State Board of Health has received an appeal from Sabula, where a large part of the population is suffering from the wholesale poisoning which occurs at a wedding three weeks ago. Two more died Monday, making four dead. D. C. Gage, groom at the wedding, will die, and others are almost certain to do so. The wails of the victims can be heard all over the town day and night. Over 100 are now confined by the complaint. The doctors believe it is trichinosis, but the symptoms reported to the board, which has sent a representative to Sabula, are those of cholera. The doctors there re exhausted and the town is in a condition of panic.
