Poisonous powder was spread today on the stairs in the home of a Jewish cattle dealer in Bad Homburg by Nazis.

A servant girl sweeping the stairs collapsed and was removed to a hospital.

This is the second case of powder poison reported in recent weeks. Similar poison powder was found outside of a synagogue. A rainfall, however, had rendered it harmless.
