Killed by Drinking Carbolic Acid
Steele Scrapbook - October 27, 1885

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 27—John Clabby, a painter, drank half an ounce of carbolic acid this afternoon by mistake. He poured the poison in a glass for the purpose of dilution. Going out he returned afterwards and poured some liquor in the glass, forgetting that he had poured the acid in the same glass and drank it. He died two hours after taking the fatal dose.
