Prinos verticillatus, Linn.

Natural order, Aquifoliaceae.

Common name, Black Alder.

Authority. Boston Med. and Surg. Journ., 1833, vol. 9, p. 383, effects of swallowing twenty to twenty-five berries.

A sensation of acrimony was left in the fauces, which was much like that produced by some of the active deobstruents (after half an hour).

In about half an hour began to have a feeling as if something was going on in the stomach different from what had been going on there, and sensations all over like those which attend nausea. Still the feeling at the stomach was not that of proper nausea, but I thought it would produce vomiting. Sensation as of a strong cathartic operating followed. Notwithstanding this, appetite not diminished, and I ate a hearty dinner at fifteen minutes past one o'clock.

Inclination to evacuate the bowels at two, but on going out, the act of walking seemed to excite sympathetic action of the muscles concerned in the act of vomiting, and the stomach was evacuated. A little bile was thrown up. Had a natural stool immediately after. Felt now free from disagreeable sensations. In half an hour had a most profuse evacuation of the bowels, consisting of their natural contents, diluted with an immense quantity of greenish liquid. This was attended with no pain or uneasiness. In about an hour and a half had another similar evacuation, but less in quantity. After this I felt remarkably well, but as though I had lost, as probably I really had, ten or twelve pounds in weight.

Appetite and digestion much better than usual after this.
