poisoned by cow's froth

The funeral of the late Jas. Turnbull of Middleton on Wednesday of last week was one of the largest in years in that district.

He had been treating a cow for a bad foot, which died, and while burying the careass on Friday afternoon it is supposed he got some of the froth of the animal's mouth into a small cut on his hand. Before night he was suffering terribly with blood poisoning, and beyond all human aid, dying Sunday morning.

Two cows died previously under like circumstances, and it is altogether likely an investigation will follow.
