POISONS AND THEIR ANTIDOTES. 

 

The first thing to do in a case of poisoning is to cause the ejection 

of the poison by vomiting. To do this, place mustard mixed with salt 

on the tongue and give large quantities of lukewarm water; or, tickle 

the throat with a feather. These failing, instantly resort to active 

emetics, like tartar emetic, sulphate of copper or sulphate of zinc. 

After vomiting has taken place with these, aid it, if possible, by 

copious draughts of warm water until the poison is entirely removed. 

Of course, if vomiting cannot be induced the stomach pump must be 

employed, especially if arsenic or narcotics have been taken. The 

following table may be useful for emergencies:-- 

 

POISONS. ANTIDOTES. 

Acids, Alkalies: Soap and milk, chalk or soda. 

Alkalies, Vegetable acids, vinegar, oil in 

abundance. 

Alcohol, Common salt, moderately. 

Arsenic, Send for the doctor and his stomach pump. 

Antimony, Oak bark, strong green tea. 

Baryta or lime, Epsom salts, oils, magnesia. 

Bismuth, White of eggs, sweet milk. 

Copper, White of eggs, strong coffee. 

Gases, Cold douche, followed by friction. 

Iodine, Starch, wheat flour in water. 

Creosote, White of eggs, sweet milk. 

Lead, Strong lemonade, Epsom salts. 

Opium and other narcotics, Emetics, cold douche, and heat. 

Phosphorus, Magnesia in copious draughts. 

Zinc, White of eggs, sweet milk. 

Mad-dog bite, Apply fire in some form to the wound, 

thoroughly and immediately. 

Bite of insect, Ammonia, applied freely. 

Bite of serpent, Same as for mad dog, followed by whisky 

to intoxication. 

 

The foregoing are the more common and more important poisons and their 

antidotes.--_Buckeye._ 

 

 

TURKISH LOTION. 

 

_The New and Wonderful Discovery for Beautifying the Skin._ 

 

Gives to a woman of forty the fresh, bright complexion of a girl. No 

more wrinkles, crow's-feet or sallowness. 

 

Turkish Lotion completely cures freckles, pimples, blackheads, moles 

and superfluous hair, tan, greasy skin, blotches, redness, sore or 

chapped lips, chapped and red, rough hands; and, best of all, 

completely eradicates and prevents wrinkles, crow's-feet, and 

sallowness. 

 

Turkish Lotion creates a perfect complexion. 

 

After using Turkish Lotion for a short time a lady's skin will be as 

exquisitely soft and velvety, as clear and pure, as that of a little
