There is said to be a plant m Arabia, with flowers of bright yellow and with seeds which are like black beans, and these dried and powdered, and taken m small closes, cause a person to dance about and behave like a lunatic, till he becomes exhausted and falls asleep. When he awakes he has not the smallest remembrance of his ridiculous behaviour. The plant is called a " laughing jplant."
