Our knowledge of * is based on two observations by S. A. Jones and T. F. Allen of the effects of the flowers on three persons. The symptoms were these: “Sense of great oppression about his chest, ” “strong tendency to fainting” (these occurred in a man). A lady had: “Oppression of chest, could not expand the lungs, with a feeling as if she had swallowed food without chewing, and it distressed her stomach.” In a doctor it “increased the pain of inflammatory gout,” and “evidently increased the paroxysm of a pain which came on every afternoon.” The *Treasury of Botany says: *”M. *glauca is a low-growing, deciduous tree, called in America Swamp Sassafras, from the nature of the locality in which it grows, and from the resemblance in its properties to *Laurus sassafras. It is also called Beaver-tree, because the root is eaten by beavers, which animals also make use of the wood in constructing their nests.”.
