DRANK CARBOLIC ACID.
Miss Ida Craig, Living Near Lancaster, Takes Her Own Life.
Special to The State.
Lancaster, Nov. 4 -- Miss Ida Craig, a young lady about 20 years of age, living about eight miles in the county, put an end to her life by drinking carbolic acid this morning about 3 o'clock. She had been using the acid for toothache, and the supposition is that after retiring for the night she drank the contents of the bottle, which was a small one with only a small quantity of the acid diluted therein. The young lady had been complaining during the day and it is probable her mind had become unbalanced from ill health.
