Most, but not all, poisons call for an emetic. Those given at the beginning are the best and most easily accessible. A pint of warm water with a tablespoonful of ground mustard and a table-spoonful of salt stirred in works quickly. Use no ceremony in administering this. Seize the patient's nose firmly, when, as a natural consequence, the mouth opens; turn the emetic down. Use cold water if warm is not convenient. After this has worked, if it is not known what the poison is, or if no other antidotes are handy, give first the white of an egg and follow with a cupful of strong coffee. A pint of sweet oil will nullify a large number of poisons. Melted lard or butter may take its place. "Warm milk and water is good; flaxseed and slippery-elm tea, chalk and water. Also convulsions from an over-loaded stomach may be relieved by an emetic.
Hot Water, or liquids taken into the mouth or swallowed, may be relieved by gargling with borax water. (Dissolve an ounce of pulverized borax in a quart of soft water.) Give also slippery-elm tea, and a little olive oil occasionally.
Incised wounds are those inflicted by sharp cutting instruments. Close as soon as possible. Apply slight pressure until the blood has stopped and hold in place with strips of adhesive plaster, and then bind up with soft linen.
