Strychnine in Snake-Bite.
—A controversy is raging in Australia on this subject. The treatment of snake-bite by the hypodermic injection of strychnia was introduced by Dr. Mueller, and evidence of its success has been adduced by other medical men who have tried the plan. Dr. T. L. Bancroft has found, by experiments on guinea pigs, that the method is useless. Recovery from snake-bite, it is well known, does imply cure, and it is not easy in particular cases to distinguish the one from the other.
