Heading off a charge of wife poisoning.

A young German in Jersey City, whose wife is in the habit of using morphine for some purpose to him unknown, has laid the matter before the authorities, fearing, in case she should take an overdose, he might be charged with poisoning her. He says he has applied to the different druggists, urging them not to sell her the article; but one of them has refused to comply with his request, and still supplies her.
