Dies After Eating Deviled Ham

Miss Zoe Coll Succumbs to Ptomaine Poisoning After Illness of One Day

After but a day's illness, Miss Zoe Coll, the fourteen-year-old daughter of Dan Coll, died this morning from ptomaine poisoning. The little girl complained of having pains last Sunday night, but it was not though that there was anything serious the matter with her, until last night, when she died in terrible pain. It is presumed that the poison germs that took her young life lurked in some deviled ham that she ate Sunday night.

Miss Coll was a student in the public schools of Reno and had a host of friends. She was always sunny and ready for frolic and yet was ready for work when work time came. No arrangements have been made for the funeral. She is survived by a father, Dan Coll, proprietor of the Brewery Saloon, at Sixth and Sierra Streets, a mother, a sister, Edna, aged 19, and two brother, Dannie, aged 10, and C.W. Stark.
