sorry... hit "enter" 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.
