Poison From a Secret Admirer

Sept. 7, 1909, Car Ads

Sept. 7, 1909: Car shopping a century ago.


A bottle of wine from a secret admirer nearly kills Mrs. J.G. Cash, Reno telephone operator. Cash went to the hospital because she felt ill and when a doctor prescribed some wine as a treatment, she sent to her home for the bottle. Cash shared a drink with two nurses and all three become quite ill.

The torso of a woman about 20 is found tied in a bag in Ecourse [Ecorse] Creek, near Detroit … and in Spain, peasants beat a bicyclist to death because he shot a dog.
