Jackie Nelson, 2-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. A.R. Nelson, received painful burns around the mouth and eyes Monday when he took a sip out of a bottle of formaldehyde he found while playing in a neighbor’s yard. The little boy ran for home, falling in a faint at the door step. Medical attention was summoned and it was found he had not swallowed any of the poison. The burns about his eyes were on the outer lids only, caused by him rubbing his hands across his mouth and then his eyes. The next day, Jackie was playing with the other neighborhood youngsters as usual.
