Believed However that the Attack is
Not of a Serious Nature Prevented
by Illness from Attending Chuch
Reports Cause Some Apprehension
LONDON June 16 King Edward
is suffering from a chill which has
prevented him from attending the
church parade of the Aldershot gar
The chill came as a result of the
kings prolonged stay outdoors upon
the occasion of the torchlight tattoo

one accompanied by symptoms of
lumbago The weather was extreme
ly cold and it rained at intervals be
fore their majesties left the brigade
ground King Edward returned to
his apartments chilled from the un
wonted exposure
These reports of his majestys III
nqss have naturally caused appre
hension but there is apparently no
reason to anticipate serious results
An authentic statement from Aider
shot is to the effect that King Edward
is slightly indisposed but that his
indisposition is not of a serious na
Sir Francis Laking physician in or
dinary to his majesty was summoned
to Aldershot He prescrbed for the
king and recommended that the day
be Bpent in perfect quiet
Queen Alexandria and the other
members of the royal party attended
the service at the church but remain
ed in the royal apartments for the
rest of the day
It has been learned that the king
arose in the afternoon This is con
sidered a good reason for hoping that
his indisposition is only temporary
King Edwards indisposition was an
nounced too late to become generally
known in London Sunday but consid
ering the near approach of the cor
onation it is bound to cause extreme
The Court Circular publishes the
following official announcement
King Edward was unable to leave
his room owing to an attack of lum
bago caused by a chill
Sir Francis Laking was in attend
ance upon his majesty Sunday night
and found the king to be much bet
The latest expectation is that King
Edward will be able to attend the re

Town of Plymouth Torn Up Over Poi
soning Case
FAIRBURY Neb June 16 The
town of Plymouth in the northeast
part of the county has considerable
excitement over a poisoning which
seems to have no plausible explana
tion A small circus which travels in
one car stopped there and while the
company numbering twenty two peo
ple in all were at supper they were
poisoned The manager Charles Kin
nebrew and wife escaped but a Miss
Myrtle Boyles of Topeka and a Mrs
E W Dilger a contortionist were so
severely poisoned that it was feared
they would not recover while the bal
ance of the company were more or
less affected The two ladiese who
were so badly affected were taken to
the hotel and their food was prepared
respectively under the supervision of
Mrs Dilgers husband and Miss Boyles
brother After eating a small portion
of toast prepared in this manner the
two women became violently ill again
and doctors from this city were sum
moned who pronounced it strychnine
The county attorney was in Ply
mouth investigating the case but he
can find no evidence upon which to
make an arrest There were some
circumstances surrounding the first
poisoning that directed some suspicion
towards Henry Beno a freak who re
cently joined the show and who eats
glass swallows all kinds of poisons
and does other seemingly impossible
feats but as he could not possibly
have had anything to do with the sec
ond dose the mystery only deepens
