YOUNG, Zuella

Child Poisoned

Zuella Young, the two-and-one-half year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Young of the West Ward, died at 5 o'clock Sunday morning from the effects of drinking about two ounces of yellowish fluid used for coloring butter.

The child climbed a ladder to the top of the kitchen cupboard and got hold of a good-sized bottle of the stuff. When found Zuella said she had tasted the stuff but didn't like it.

Later the child became violently ill and in spite of all efforts she passed away before daylight. Funeral services were conducted at 1:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon by the Rev. J. Twyson Jones, pastor of the First Congregational church. Interment was made in Lloyd's cemetery.
