Iti is alleged that because of the appearance of the water and because on' the night iirevions at the FUiiper table Mrs. Isaac Ball, the accused woman, had stated that aij en- emv of fi.e family t»-as in the country and that they had better be careful, she did not use the water from the barrel but wfmt elsewhere to get it. The suspicion of the entire family was art^useil .and a sample of the water found in tlit^ barrel was sent to the chemist at the State L'nlversitv who made an analysis and found that It contained a large quantity of Jirsenic. ji„ia last fall.
