Deadly Nightshade, Dway-Berries, Or Deadly Dwale ; the Atropa Belladonna, L. indigenous plant, growing in hedges, among lime-stone and rubbish; it flowers in the month of June or July.—The whole of this plant is poisonous ; and children, allured by the beautiful appearance of its berries, have too often experienced their fatal effects.—The most proper antidotes, in such accidents, are strong eme-tics, large draughts of oil and vinegar, purgatives, blisters applied to the neck ; and, after the poison has been ejected from the stomach, the tincture, of castor in small doses of 10 or 15 drops, should be diluted in a spoonful of water, and taken every two or three hours.— It is asserted, that tumors of the breasts, even of the cancerous kind, have been resolved by a local application of the fresh leaves. A poultice prepared of the roots, boiled in milk, and applied to hard ill-conditioned ulcers, has sometimes effected a cure.—Although the internal use of this medicine, and its great efficacy in the most obstinate diseases, such as hydrophobia, epilepsy, melancholy, madness, and the distemper of cattle, is attested by many eminent continental writers, yet we do not advise our readers to Venture upon a remedy so powerful and dangerous in its effects. —'The juice of the berries, when ripe,. imparts to paper a beautiful and durable purple.—Sheep, rabbits, and hogs, eat the leaves of the Deadly Nightshade without the least injury ; nay, experience has evinced, that the last mentioned animals have, by the use of this herb alone, been effectually cured of the inflammatory distemper, to which, they are subject in dry seasons.
