Ate Chicken Which Was Tainted and Ptomaine Poisoning Resulted
Miss Hazel Gallup, daughter of Charles E. Gallup, of East Kingsley street was made dangerously sick this week by eating some chicken which had been cooked in a metal kettle, and developed ptomaine poisoning.
Miss Gallup had been visiting her sister, Mrs. Harlow Ingall of Medina for a few days, and before she left on Sunday her sister gave her a cooked chicken to bring home. On Monday she ate a small quantity and soon afterward was taken violently ill. A doctor was called who pronounced it ptomaine poisoning, and vigorous treatment probably saved her life. Today she is just able to be about the house, although still very weak.

One of the pretty and simple mid-summer weddings was solemnized last evening at 8 o’clock at the home of the bride, when Miss Anges Jewell Gallup, eldest daughter of Charles E. Gallup, was united in marriage to Harlow Dewey Ingall of Morenci, Mich.
Owing to the recent death of the bride’s mother, the affair was very quiet, and was witnessed only by relatives and a few close friends. The officiating clergyman was Rev. David Howell of Lansing, and the ceremony which took place at 8 o’clock, was begun by the wedding march played by Miss Mary Ann Haynes of Ann Arbor, during which Miss Gallup and Mr. Ingall took their places before the minister. Miss Gallup was unattended, and her gown was of lingerie trimmed with baby Irish trimming. The rooms were decorated with smilax and carnations prettily arranged, and a pink and white color scheme was carried out everywhere. After the serving of refreshments Mr. and Mrs. Ingall left on the 9:30 Michigan Central for Detroit and from there they will take a boat tonight for Mackinac, to be gone about two weeks.
