Mrs. Seamon: Threw Acid at Husband, Hits Child - 1914

FULL TEXT: Pittsburgh, Pa., Jan. 28.—Little Ralph Seamon, 1 year old, may pay with a scarred face and the sight of his right eye because his father danced the tango with a girl his mother doesn't like. Mrs. Seamon threw acid at her husband after the dance and it hit the child.
