Important Statement Bearing on the
Poison Theory in Fall River.

Taunton, Aug. 15. — A Taunton Gazette reporter learned from Bridget Sullivan on Sunday that the reason she laid down on the day of the Borden murders was because she was troubled with nausea that morning and vomited several times while washing windows. Previous statements from the police have been to the effect that she laid down because she was tired with the work. It is probable that this statement was held back, if made known at the inquest, as bearing upon the theory that the victims may have been dosed.
