Antidote to strychnine.

--From some very interesting experiments made by Professor L. Vella, of Turin, we are led to conclude that the poison curare is an antidote to strychnine. Curare completely destroys the effects of dose of strychnine, which is mortal when administered either through the stomach, or by injection, into the veins.
