Canine Hallucination

Extract

A dog, into the stomach of which M. Magnan forced five grammes of the essence of absinthe, was first attacked with violent convulsions; at the end of an hour, without any provocation, it started up suddenly on to its feet, its hair standing on end, its countenance fierce, its eyes bloodshot and glaring. It looked fixedly towards a completely bare wall, on which there was nothing whatever to attract its attention, leaning forward on its feet, with extended neck, ready to make a spring. It advanced and retreated alternately, barked with rage, and seemed to engage in a furious fight, snapping its jaws and jumping quickly about as if to seize its adversary; it then shook its head from side to side, with clenched teeth, as if it were tearing its prey. By degrees it became calm, looked several times, growling, in the same direction, and after a while settled down entirely.
