A Remedy Worse than the Disease
A story told by Audubon is of an asthmatic clergyman who procured the glands of a skunk and kept them corked in a smelling bottle, to be applied to his nose when symptoms of his complaint made themselves manifest. He believed that he had discovered a specific for his distressing malady, but on one occasion he uncorked the bottle in the pulpit and drove the congregation out of church.
