Article Relating to Sylvia Milliken, 1912

On Saturday, while Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Milliken and daughter, Sylvia, of Bristoria, were visiting Mrs. Milliken's parents, Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Pethtel, of Rogersville, and attending the grange fair, the child found a piece of bread on which was a quantity of strychnine for poisoning rats. When discovered the child had the bread in her mouth and in a short time she became very sick. Dr. B. L. Cowen, of Waynesburg, who was attending the fair was hastily summoned and administered an antidote. On Sunday the child was reported out of danger.
