Further search may indicate a wider range of growth. The United States department of agriculture, which has been making a preliminary investi gation of the effects of this plant, con siders it a sufficient menace to warrant a preliminary warning. The plant occurs in scattered patches, never in large quantities as is the case with some of the recognized loco plants. It blooms early in June and generally dries up later m the summer, it is a perennial leguminous plant belonging to I the same family as the locoes, alfalfa, etc. It stands from one to two feet high. It has linear leaves, small and rather inconspicuous flowers of a light purple color, and peculiar pods possess ing four wings a feature which makes identification rather easy. Early m the season before new pods are formed those of the preceding year ordinarily can be found on the old plants.

At this stage of the investigation, no advice can be given as to the treatment of poisoned animals, the federal scien tists state. Stockmen should recognize, however, that the plant is injurious to cattle and sheep and probably also to horses.
