TRIVIAL CUT CAUSES DEATH
Four Months After Injury Woman Dies of Blood Poisoning
A trivial cut in her thumb, sustained while she was cutting a slice of ham eight weeks ago, resulted on Friday morning in the death of Catherine, wife of George Adams, of Prosser Hollow, in Cambria county. The wound at the time it was inflicted attracted only passing notice, and Mrs. Adms experienced neither inconvenience nor pain from it for a month, when it began to trouble her, and finally she was compelled to seek the service of a physician.
Mrs. Adams was able to be around until Wednesday evening, when she became suddenly very ill and was put to bed. Dr. E. J. Burkhart was summoned early Thursday morning. In the afternoon a consultation of three or four physicians was held when it was learned that the pus following the wound had affected the heart and nervous system. Mrs. Adams rapidly declined, passing away at 4:55 Friday morning.
The deceased was the mother of Walter Adams, of Bolivar
