POISONED RABBITS.

TO THK EDITOR. Sir,—The question is frequently discussed whether or not there is any danger in eating a rabbit poisoned with phosphorus, but no one seems to have a certain knowledge. Professor Black, Dr Ogston, or other chemists could possibly say. Perhaps they would be good enough to inform the public. The general notion is that because the phosphorus burns the bowels, as is plainly noticeable when the rabbit so poisoned i 3 skinned, death results simply from the inflammation ; and that the poison doesnotpass into the parts of the body which are eaten. Quite possibly this is wrong, and the error may not be discovered till there has been a human victim.—l am, etc., Non-chemist, Dunedin, September 17.
