As the poisoning advances, the motions of the chest during the paroxysms become more and more confined by spasms of the muscles ; and at last there is a period towards the close of each paroxysm, when the spasm is so great as completely to suspend the respiration. This is commonly •accompanied with more or less extension of the head, tail, and extremities, sometimes...
Page 174 - I cut a sprig of it, and gave to the man next to me, who ate it; when we had got to the end of the piece, which was about six rods, he said that he believed what I had given him would kill him, for he never felt so in his life.
