Woman Vomits Up Live Lizard

"Mrs. Marshall has been bothered for some time by a severe pain in her stomach and yesterday she complained more than ever, so her daughter prepared a drink for her, made mostly of jamaica ginger and gin. The beverage must have loosened the lizard, which was evidently attached to the lining of Mary's stomach, and yesterday afternoon she vomited up the object. She claims that it was alive when it came out her mouth but that she accidentally smothered it when she gathered it up in a handkerchief." - from "Woman Vomits Up Live Lizard," La Crosse Republican Leader (July 7, 1902).
