Death from arsenic eating. --A death recently occurred in Halifax from arsenic eating. The victim was a vigorous man, who, four years ago, saw some remarks in a magazine about the arsenic eaters of Styria, and the supposed beneficial effects of the poison upon the skin and lungs. He commenced the practice, and from that day, though previously in good health, he became, in the language of his friends, a "complaining man." Abdominal and gastric pains tormented him, but he persisted in the foolhardy experiment until a small overdose brought on all the symptoms of arsenic poisoning; and, in spite of all that could be done by the best physicians, resulted in death. Before he died, he declared that although he had pursued the fatal practice so long and so faithfully, he was conscious of having received no benefit whatever from it. No arsenic was discovered in any of the organs, although carefully analyzed, thus showing that the doses which destroyed life must have been very minute.
