Sand-box. Monkey's dinner-Belladonna bell. N. O. Euphorbiaceae. Tincture of seeds.

"The curious, rounded, hard-shelled fruits are about the size of an orange, and have as many deep furrows as there are cells, each cell containing a single flattened seed. When the fruit is ripe and exposed to a dry atmosphere, it bursts with great force, accompanied by a loud, sharp crack like the report of a pistol, for which reason it is often called the Monkey's Dinner-Belladonna bell. The seeds are emetic, in a green state violently purgative, but when dry, according to Lunan, they lose this property. An oil is extracted from them, and sometimes used as a purgative, about twenty drops of it being equal in action to a tablespoonful of Castor Equi castor oil. A venomous milky juice is abundant in all parts of the plant, and if it be applied to the eye causes almost immediate blindness." The Treasury of Botany, from which I quote the above, only recognises one species of Hura Braziliensis Hura, H. crepitans. But Murex Mure compares his Hura Braziliensis Hura with H. crepitans. They are probably varieties of the same species, the properties of the milk of the two being the same. The observed effects of H. crep. were from eating the seeds. Burning in throat.

vomiting and purging. suffocation.

headache, were the main symptoms complained of.
