      Funeral for Eugene H. Bogar, 42, victim of poison yesterday about noon, will be held this afternoon at 4 o'clock at Laughters funeral home with the Rev. C. A. Long, pastor of St. Paul Methodist church, officiating.
       
      Bogar was taken to the Hendrick Memorial Hospital yesterday morning about 11:30 o'clock suffering from a poison acid.  An ambulance was called to 1051 South Fourth by a friend who said he had waited in front of the apartment while Bogar went inside.  Officers found an empty five ounce bottle marked poison in the apartment.
       
      Approximately an hour earlier Bogar had stopped at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Bogar, 781 Cedar, where he too lived.  Members of the family said they had no poison at the home such as that the bottle had contained.  A check of drug stores showed no recent sales of the poison.
       
      His family described Bogar as a reticent person but added that he had seemed in good spirits yesterday as usual.
       
      Survivors besides his parents are a sister, Mrs. Ray Andrews of Abilene; two brothers, W. F. on shore duty with the U.S. navy at New London, Conn., and Floyd of Abilene.
       
      Eugene Bogar was born in Lancaster, Sept. 22, 1896.  He was a small boy when the family moved to Abilene.
