Master Violet Ray kit and a strychnine bottle. The violet ray machine actually works. You take the attachment of your choice and slide the metallic looking end into a hole in the rheostat's attachment, then crank up the juice. The glass attachment will glow a purplish-blue and if you hold it to your skin, there a tingling. You can adjust the current to get more "tingle." The phamplet with it shows a variety of other attachment for various body parts - some I would be vary dubious about applying electric current to.

The 11.5" tall amber bottle, I assume was some type of patent medicine containing quinine, iron and STRYCHNINE! The label also indicated it was prepared by the G.F. Harvey
Co. in Saratoga Springs, New York.

If interested I have some vintage vet supplies some in boxes never opened.

That is a very good question with not an easy answer.  When they have their original label, soaking them is obviously not a good idea.  Maybe some others have other ideas, but most people just leave them alone and clean the outside.

What do you do with old pharmaceutical bottles that still have their contents and the tops are stuck on?  I have a few with poison in them...

I wish I had a photo for you! A while ago, I had been watching Pawn Stars - (Mondays at 10/9c on the History Channel) and seen a man bring an antique ECT machine into the shop. (It was a portable machine used to conduct electroconvulsive therapy.)
Then, I visited my dermatologist to see a vintage EKG machine on a shelving display of medical antiques. (That is the machine used to check the electrical activity of your heart.)
The machine was portable in a type of suitcase, as well.
