Peculiar -Death. A most peculiar , -death occurred recently at Creston, Iowa (U.. 8.^ A.): The seven year old daughter of John Ponte, a Bur lington conductor, wa's taken ill with what physicians pro nounce dysentery, in spite of their best efforts the- little one grew worse, until her death.: An autopsy revealed the fact that- the child'had swallowed peas: whole; that they had sprouted, an&vwere growing in the stomach. ' The case' is said to be one of the most peculiar on record.—Taking line, frofn :this=\ disastrous ^ development, which, l?y the wa|y, happened in America, it would be wise for people to . discontinue .the swallowing of cherry, orange, passion: fruit; and miscellaneous seeds. The' growth -of a pas sion-vine within , one's interior regions would prove most un-' comfortable,: apart 'altogether from fchemenate to health . and existence.
