TOOK PARIS GREEN
THE DEATH OF DANIEL C. PATTISON FROM
ITS EFFECTS

When Albert C. Pattison's folks returned to their home on Morton Hill Monday afternoon, they found Daniel C. Pattison, Mr. Pattison's father, up stairs in the barn, a short distance from the house, suffering terrible agony. The balance of some Paris green That had been used for potato bugs, that left in the barn, was found near him and it was soon learned that he had taken a large dose of it. A messenger was immediately summoned to this village, and Dr. Millard was called and id all he could, but in vain; the unfortunate man died about 3 o'clock Tuesday morning, after having suffered terrible agony.

A few weeks ago the deceased received $88.50 in pension money and gave some of it to his son and daughter to save, but afterwards, becoming intoxicated, demanded it, and as Mr. Pattison did not want him to have it in this condition there was some little dispute. The money was finally given to him and he went to cattleshow. After that he stayed in the village so much that he became partially crazed and went home and took the Paris green while in this state.

The deceased was born in Heath, Mass., and lived in North Adams almost all his life. He leaves a large family, who have the sympathy of many friends in this trial and affliction. The funeral was held at 3 o'clock this Wednesday afternoon.
