Coroner Carl Phillips to<Iay swore in a conuior's, jury and began an inquest. Tin' .stomach was removed from the body a' the Smith Undertaking Co.'s morpu<? this morning and delivered to Pnif. E. H. S. Bailey, head of the choniistry department of the University of Kansas, for analysis. It will take two or three days at least to detprniino tlii' results of the analysis which he will make. The coroner's jury summoned was sworn in and viewed the body, after which it was dismissed to convene again Friday at 9 o'clock. By that time, it is believed, the analysis will be completed and tlie jury will have evidence at hand upon which to base conclusions of some sort. The matter was brought to the coroner's attention by the neighbors who complained that they suspected iiois- oninp:. A druggist said that Mr. Van- cii tried to purchase rough on rats finni him Saturday and. upon being questioned, y .r. Vancll readily admitted th;it he had purchased that imison. He said ho put it out in his cellar to kill rat.-^. The coroner is proceeding upon nnlhiug more than a suspicion of the n.'ighbors that Vancil is guilty, and luis not had him arrested. "1 heard tiie stories that were being circulated." said the, coroner tnis morning. and 1 determined to I»now the facts so as to sot everylmdy at rest. I dtv temiined that if the woman liiul l)eon poisoned, it was due her to make the fact known, and that, if she had not been poisoned, it was certainly due to her husband to disclose tlio fact and free Iiim from-all suspicion." The husiiand. Bphrram Vancil, is a 8hoenial <er, and he worked for a long time at Fischer's shoe store. More r.->cently he has worRed ."or the Ncwby shoe shop. The neighborhood gossips say that he has, for a year past, been flirting with other tromen and malting the life of his wife unnappy generally. How true ;n:.= storj- may b" s not determined, but It appears to have considerable foundation. Mrs. Vancil was taken 11! with the grip several days ago. A physician was summoned and treated her case. He did not diagnooe It as anything other than grip, but he says she had a weak heart and that this may have complicated her othrr illness in such a way as to cause death suddenly. J. O.
