MADSTONE WHERE FOUNDWill say that the mad stone is found in the stomach of a deer. It is caused by a growth of some kind. It will positively cure mad dog or cat bites but I do not know whether or not it will cure snake bites.
There is a lady of this place who has one and nearly every summer uses it as there are quite a few dogs and cats go mad. The mad-stone sticks to the place bitten until all the poison is drawn out which lasts from six hours to three days and sometimes longer. The stone is boiled in milk to remove poison. This is not superstition but fact. Proof can be furnished if wanted. I hope this will be of some benefit to readers.
