Found this in the Oak Cliff site.
I have Two but this one is complete. 
A little rough but intact.
Screw top but dates to 1890-1920.
If anyone knows anything about this bottle
or it's contents let me know.
I'm in the dark about this one.

That's a really nice blue bottle and I like it's shape. I tried to find out a bit about it, but all I discovered was that it was filled with boric acid - nothing from a Mexican cactus like it was claimed.

Here's the link. Found mostly useless info like you said, so I checked in Google books. It's just a sentence saying it wasn't what it claimed to be. That bottle might be rare and worth some bucks.
