BEAR GALLS AND “COTTON WOOL”
BEAR GALLS AND “COTTON WOOL”—(1) What are hear galls used for and are they dried, or how prepared for sale? (2) What is the “Colton wool” that Ernest Thompson-Selon speaks of in his book on Wolf Trapping, for use around traps.
(1) They are used a little in medicine, and I believe that true gall is either dried or preserved in small bottles. (2) Simply fluffs of sheep wool collected from bushes where sheep roam. I think, too, that sometimes he uses the term regarding cattail milkweed and other weed fluff, used to keep trap from freezing in, and clogging with dirt or debris. Doubtless, ordinary cotton that is odorless is as good.
