Strychnine in excessive doses
sometimes acts as ah emetio
through the medium of irritation,
although it does not have a true
emetio property, according to
medical men. To : that fact Will
MoKeel owes his life. According
to a story which reached Kinston
Sunday, MoKeel and others paid
a visit to Jack Hill, who lives near
the line between Greene aud
queutly that he put a large
amount of strychnine in a link of
sausage and left it in a handy
place with other meat. "I'm
some kind of hungry,'1 MoKeel is,
said to htre told his host.
Whereupon the party repaired to
the smokehouse and got sausage
for a meal . The meal was ever
before Hill recollected the poison
ed sausage. McKeel had got the
link with the strychnine. He es
caped death because of the unusual
amount of the drug that Hill had
put into the link. McKeel has

6erman Press is D tided oa Note.
Berlin, June 18 (Via London)
The Berlin morning papers gen'
orally comment more or less ex
tendedly on the American note
a Hug the lineB followed by the
Saturday evening papers.
. While there is a general , dispo
sition to reoogniz- the friendly
tone of the note and the fact that
it makes further negotiations pos
sible the press is divided, roughly
into two parties, one disposed to
enter into negoatipns looking to
a compromise ou a new basis,
while the other, by implication or
expressly, rojeots any departure
from the oource heretofore follow
ed. Among the representatives
of the latter idea is the Tagliohe
Rundschau, whioh declares that
while the note seeks a Way to a
compromise, it seeks it along lines
"which must result to the disad
vantage of Germany."
The Rundschau continues:
"The note, therefore is calculated
only to postpone a settlement of
German-Amerioin relations and
not bring it about.. The fmndly
tine we acknowledge, but the dec
aration that the sinking of the
Lusitania was unparalleled in
modeon warfare, seems opposed to
the character of upright friend
ship." The Rundschau defends . the
sinking of the Lusitania and in
conclusion declares: "And the
watohword is 'the torpedoing will
go on.' "
The Kreui Zeitung emphasises
Germany's right to prevent the
shipment of ammunition to any
enemy by every means. It also is
unable to see what England cau
off t in return for theabandon
ment of the submarinef'campaign
"since the plan to starve Germany
has finally failed."
