Sister "Doctored" Baby; Infant Is Now Dead

Abercrombie, N. D., Dec 31.—One of the saddest tragedies that has occurred in this district was the death of the five months old child of Dr. and Mrs. H. C. Cooper of Abercrombie.

The child was poisoned by her three-year-old sister, playing "doctor," the elder child pouring a quantity of wood alcohol on the baby's face and down its throat. Death occurred within a few hours.
