Mexican Physician Poisoned by
Ptomaines During Journey.

Dr. E. Malino, a physician of Toluca, Mexico, was taken off a Union Pacific train in a critical condition and removed to the Swedish hospital on East Eighth street. He is suffering from ptomaine poisoning caused by something he had eaten on the train. He was pronounced out of danger yesterday afternoon by the hospital physicians.

Dr. Malino left Mexico a week ago to travel in America as a companion of a wealthy young Mexican whose parents sent him abroad for the benefit of his health. Jose Dosal, the Mexican consul to Kansas City, called at the hospital yesterday to see Dr. Malino. He says that he is an eminent physician at Toluca and that his traveling companion is a member of a prominent family there.
