Arsenic cures of 1900

Written by: DON JOHNSON

Over a hundred years ago in the bush of west Queensland the cure all for everything was, a mixture of axle grease blue stone and arsenic. It was known to heal up skin cancer, sore backs on horses kill swamp cancer on a horses belly ... .it killed the skin cancer on old lumpy an Aboriginal about 1900 ad.. .bluestone was used to get rid of proud flesh on a horse... .My great great grandpa Joe White, when asked was it any good? He replied it will heal up a dogs ass in 3 days, and grow hair on it on the 4th ... arsenic puffed into white ants kills many and they cannabalise till the last ant goes hungry thanks for your time...
