William Schrum

We have just seen at Dr. Coats' office a so-called stomach snake which is said to have come up and been pulled out from the stomach of Mr. Wm. Schrum, of this city, last Tuesday. On Wednesday morning Mr. Schrum died. We are not informed whether the snake, or its expulsion caused his death. Mr. Schrum was a brewer and saloon-keeper, and doubtless accustomed to the use of beer, and perhaps other liquors, though, not so far as we know, to their excessive use.
