to the family of euphorbia. The Indians
throw the leaves into the water, and the
fish become stupefied and rise to the

cotic soon passes off. The milk of this
plant thrown upon the fire gives out
fumes that produce nausea and head-
acne. The milk taken internally is a
deadly poison. It will produce death or
