Specially Prepared

Poisoned Five.

Five members of Col. W. H. Mercer's surveying crew, who are stopping in a house on Second street, were poisoned this morning by partaking of canned beef, in which there were germs of putrefaction. They were taken ill shortly after breakfast, and each of them vomited everything which was loose within him. Dr. Smith was called at about 11 o'clock, and under his efficient treatment the boys were soon better, and will pull through all right.
