Research Facts
This type of unembossed generic type bottles could have - and likely were - used for many types of liquid products, e.g., ammonia or other cleaning products, acids and chemicals of all types as well as liquor, maple syrup, or anything that could be poured into it and back out of the bottle.
The large (about a quart in capacity) amber bottle is what the Illinois Glass Company called a "Druggist's Packing Bottle" in their early 20th century catalogs.

Research Facts
Atropine is an antimuscarinic agent as it blocks muscarinic actions of neurotransmitters in the nervous system; reduces perspiration, dilates pupils. Taken as tablets to be dissolved in water and injected hypodermically (beneath the skin) or can be taken as eye drops. Given before anaesthesia to decrease mucus secretions (saliva, or bronchial secretions), treats certain eye conditions (i.e inflammation of the eye) when taken as eye drops.
