John Benson
AMERICAN FORK, UTAH,  born Nov. 23d, 1830, in Cambridge, England; John Benson had been suffering with constipation for some time, and in an endeavor to get relief he went to the drug store of which G. W. Rigby is proprietor and asked for Epsom salts. He was informed by Druggist Rigby that he did not have any, but recommended rochelle salts as being just as desirable. These Benson bought, on the druggist's recommendation, and proceeded home. In the presence of his wife and familv he took an average sized dose. Within fifteen minutes Benson was writhing in convulsions. Dr. Egihan was immediately called, but was unable to do anything for the suffering man. who died shortly after the doctor's arrival.
On examination of the remaining salts the doctor discovered that it was not rochelle salts at all, but antimony tartrate, a deadly poison, which had been given him. Druggist Rigby, in explaining the mistake, stated that it had been made by a former owner of the drug store, who had carelessly placed the deadly drug in a bottle designed and labeled for the rochelle salts, not having changed the label to correspond with the contents.
