On Saturday evening eight or nine persons in various parts of New Plymouth suddenly showed symptoms of poisoning, several cases being Very bad. The doctors do not give a decided opinion as to the exact cause of the poisoning, but it is a significant fact that in every case the patient had partaken of brawn made by a local butcher. One of the victims was so ill that fatal results were reared. He is now, however, coavalcscent.
