sorry... hit "enter" by mistake:
DRINKS CARBOLIC ACID BY MISTAKE
Worthington, Minn., Jan. 3. --
Dr. Edward Dolan, a prominent young physician, is dead from a dose of carbolic acid, taken by mistake. Dr. Dolan had received a sick call from a patient residing in the country and after entering his carriage himself, felt unwell. He opened his medicine case and in the darkness, took from it a vial containtaining the poison. He immediately discovered his mistake, but died before he could reach assistance.
I also find notes of his death in online book excerpts. One states he left a wife and a young son:
It says he was 37 years old and had practiced medicine at Worthington for 10 or 12 years. Here he is in 1895:
1895 MN Nobles County, Worthington
E. DOLAN, 27, born Minn, age 27, Physician
I don't find him in the 1900 census...
In the Minnesota Death Certificates Index his mother's maiden name is listed as Hubbard.
