While being off work recovering from a total knee replacement, I had time to look through some
antique junk I collected over the years.
Came across a 1917 Advanced First Aid For Miners Book. While reading through it, there were pages
for treating Miners with Alcoholic Poisoning and treating Carbolic Acid Poisoning.
Enlarge the scans and read the treatments.
For Carbolic Acid, if they had no liquor for you to drink (whisky, brandy,etc.) they would have you
ingest SOAP SUDS and apply HOT BRICKS to the extremities.
Happy I was not a miner in them days. By todays standards, this book is CRUDE.
