It w.ould be interesting to know what the police are doing in tho mat ter. If, as soenis to be the universal ?idea, that the baits were poisoned with 'Cyanide, same could hay e only been obtained from one of about 3 sources;* (provided of course that it was not secured outside), or if. with Arsenic tiien a 'glance jatJbhe poison register of our local - Chemist aughi elicit some v .clue,- - 'Anyhowjii&'^ostigations ty the . authori...
