Mr. and Mrs. Henry HURTGEN were seriously poisoned Sunday by eating poke root which they mistook for horseradish. A bunch of horseradish was gathered, but only one root was prepared for dinner and very little used as it seemed of poor flavor. Some time afterward they became violently ill and but for the timely arrival of their son Archie, who immediately came back to town for Dr. MOCKBEE. He worked four hours with them before they were out of danger. It is probably the mistake that would have terminated fatally. Both have recovered and seemed to be none the worse for their experience but in the future, hope to be more critical even of their own family horseradish bed.

We shall start at home.
