1. firkin- a small cask used for liquids; also a volume of beer.

2. niggling- cause slight but persistent annoyance, discomfort, or anxiety.

3. foxglove- bears tall, dramatic spikes of tubular flowers with speckled throats.

  2. I read a lot of Agatha Christie and she often uses foxglove. Evidently it's a great poison.
