Lowie, of the American Museum of Natural History, I have been able to make certain that the tobacco which is of so much ceremonial importance among the Crow Indians is Nicotiana multivalvis. I have examined...
Sivu 462 - The art of medicine," says Herodotus, "is thus divided among them : Each physician applies himself to one disease only, and not more. All places abound in physicians; some physicians are for the eyes, others for the head, others for the teeth, others for the...
