Unci* Sam's Specialists Issue Warn ing Against Poisonous Roots Not Generally Recognized. Many deaths, both of human belngfl and domestic animals, are caused every year by cicuta, or water hemlock, a poisonous plant. It is the most vio lently poisonous of temperate region plants, yet it is not generally recog nized. Learn to know it and look out for it is a warning issued by special ists of Uncle Sam's department of agriculture who have published a cir cular which describes this plant and gives remedies, though cases among domestic animals must be considered as practically hopeless eo far as treat ment is concerned. Cicuta is widely distributed. Unfor tunately, it resembles a number of harmless plants and is not easily recognizable. It belongs to the same family as carrots and parsnips. It has a number of popular names, of which the most common is "cowbane," or "water hemlock." In the mountain re gions of the West it is frequently called "parsnip" or "wild parsnip." Other names, less common, are "snake root," "snakewood," "beaver poison," "muskrat weed," "spotted hemlock," and "spotted parsley." The plant grows In wet places and is especially common in some parts of the West'along irrigating ditches. It has a thickened rootstock with roots which sometimes take the form of a group of tubers. The cicuta is most readily distinguished from plants of similar appearance growing under the same conditions by the transverse chambers in the rootstock. These can be seen by making a longitudinal sec tion. Only the root of cicuta is poisonous. Cases of poisoning are more frequent in the spring, partly because the roots are more likely to be noticed at that time and partly because they appear to be more poisonous then than later in the season. In cases of the poisoning of human beings the recognized treatment is to By PAUL PURMAN. The next time your favorite batter is "up there." trying to outguess the pitcher, take your eyes away from his bat for a second and watch the expression on his face as he swings for the pill. You never saw him look like that before, but the chances are you will see that expression many times if you watch^.his face in subsequent times at bat. The face of practically every ball player is contorted a3 he swings at the ballv He-is making a supreme eqort and is putting every bit of en ergy and strength into the blow. Watch a sprinter as he finishes his dasli for the tape, notice the expres sion on the face of the distance run ner as he topples over the line, mark be given to control the convulsions when they are violent. If free vomit ing is promptly produced, the patient is likely to recover. So far as live stock is concerned, about all that can be done must be in the way of prevention. If the land is plowed where the plant grows, care should be taken that no roots are left where stock can get at them. Where the plants grow in great abundance, as they frequently do along irrigating ditches, it is desirable to dig them out. When this is done the roots should not be left on the surface, but should be destroyed. It is seldom that stock are poisoned when grazing, un less they graze along ditches, where the plants sometimes grow almost in the watar with very little soil and can eusily be pulled up. Perhaps there is no way to prevent some cases of poisoning of children, it is declared. Something might be ac complished, however, if parents and teachers would attempt to mpke clear to children the danger of eating strange roots.

BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE He Takes a Wallop at the BallWatch Your Favorite Next Time You Won't Recognize Him. of Another forward step In Uncle Sam's campaign to conserve the na tion's food as vi war measure is the creation of a nvv branch of the de partment of agriculture which will be devoted exclusively to control of in sects infesting stored food products.

There is always that drawn, taut, strained contraction of the muscles, which in anything else but athletics would de note extreme physical pain. In the athlete it shows the max imum effort' being crowded into the briefest length of time. The same holds good with the ball player. The batter is at the plate. His mind is concentrated on the pitcher. His eye follows the windup and catches the flash of the ball as it leaves the pitcher's hand. He sets for the swing "and then, putting every ounce of strength and energy into the movement tries to meet the ball. The strained expression lasts only the fractional part of a second. It has been figured tl\at a bat, swung hard, will travel about 250 feet a second. The bat is swung on a circle, the diameter of Avhich, count ing bat and length of arm, would probably be five feet on the average, the bat probably will travel half the circle or a distance pf about 17 feet, which would be accomplished in about 1-15tli of a second. You will have to watch close to see the expression, because it does not last longer than the swing. ment's food insect work, to devote all his time to pests of truck crops, a work of great importance now.
