Experts Study
Ivy Poisoning
Seek Best Ways to Avoid Infec
tion and to Eradicate
Noxious Plants.
Economic Loasea From Poisoning Are
Very Great and There la Urgent
Need of Widespread Campaigna
to Stamp Out Poisonous Plants.
(Prepared by the United Etates Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Washington, V. C. The best ways
to avoid Ivy nnd sumac poisoning, the
most practical means of eradicating
these noxious plants, and the most
approved method of treating cases of
such poisoning have been the subjects
of an Investigation conducted jointly
by the United States department of
agriculture and the public health serv
Ice of the United States treasury de
partment. Despite general belief there
s good reason for believing that abso
lute immunity rrom Ivy ana sumac
poisoning does not exist. Investigators
state. They also found that many
common methods of treatment are not
to be commended. Poison Ivy Is some
times called poison oak. Poison sumac
Is also known In various localities as
poison dogwood, poison elder, poison
nsh, thunderwood, nnd polsonwood
These poisonous plants are widely dls
trlbuted. While no accurate estimates
can be made as to the economic losses
resulting from poisoning, the total Is
very great, and there Is urgent need
for widespread campaigns to eradicate
these noxious plants.
Handle With Gloves.
If one must handle these poisonous
plants, gloves, preferably of rubber,
should be worn. After the gloves have
been removed they should be thorough
ly washed with soap and water and
rinsed several times. Inasmuch as the
clothing which comes In contact with
the leaves may be a source of Infection
for a considerable period, care should
be taken In changing the garments, nnd
also the shoes. Many cases of poison
ng have resulted merely from contact
with exposed clothing.
One of the surest and best methods
of minimizing or preventing Infection
nfter the hands, face or other parts of
the body have been exposed, Is to wash
and rinse them repeatedly with an
bundance of good kitchen soap and
hot water. The poison, nfter being
deposited on the skin, requires some
time to penetrate, and If this penetra
tion can be prevented by thoroughly
washing, eruption and irritation will
not result. While exposed parts should
be cleansed In this manner as soon
after exposure as possible, It is worth
while to make the attempt even 12 or
:0 hours nfterwards In the hope that
t least n portion of the poison may
be removed. A heavy lather should be
produced and the washing should be
continued several minutes. Severe
scrubbing with a brush is not advis
able, but several swnbs or smnll com
presses of gauze may be used, discard
ing each In turn, so that the poison
may not be distributed by the cloth.
Bathing with alcohol diluted with
n equal amount of wnter Is also nn
effective preventive. Where exposure
has been more general, a bath for the
entire body, followed by a change of
clothing, Is a good preventive measure.
The hair should not be neglected.
Bathing, if not accompanied by suffi
cient changing of water or rinsing, may
result in spreading the rash to skin
that had not been Infected. In cases
that are at all serious a physician
should be consulted.
Sugar of Lead Not Recommended.
The investlgntors cnll attention to
the fact that scores of remedies and
prescriptions are more or less In popu
lar favor, but in spite of the claims
they assert that no specific treatment
for poisoning from Ivy and sumac Is
yet available. Ointments should not
be used in the ncute stage of the dis
ease. In the later stages, however,
soothing and astringent ointments may
bo of vnlue in allaying irritation ana
hastening cure. The extent to which
it is desirable to use solutions of per
manganate of potash, hyposulphite of
soda, sulphate of magnesium (Epsom
salts), and other remedies, is also dis
cussed. Sugar of lead, formerly much
used, often proves disappointing if ap
plied after Inflammation has developed,
and the user runs the risk of lead pois
oning If this substance Is applied ex
tensively. The names "poison oak" and "nolson
Ivy" are used Interchangeably In many
localities. The plant generally known
as poison oak throughout the Pacific
coast occurs as a bush, sometimes four
or five feet high, and has leaflets re
sembling the leaves of the western oak,
but It Is also found as a vine, and is
sometimes called poison Ivy.
In the east from New Jersey, Dela
ware and Virginia southward the name
"poison oak" is often used to distin
guish from the poison Ivy vine, a form
occurring as a bush with lobed leaflets,
n little resembling the leaves of scrub
oak. Westward from Minnesota, Ne
braska, and Arkansas to Washington,
Montana, Colorado and New Mexico.
this name Is applied to a low bush or
trailing shrub which does not climb.
The leaves of all forms have stont
rather long stems, bearing three leaf
lets, two or which are opposite, and
short stalked, while the third has a
long stalk. The leaflets are from one
to four inches long, dark green on the
upper surface, lighter (sometimes with
a velvety coverlne of fine hairs) un
derneath, with smooth or somewhat
indented margins.
In the eastern states and westward
as far as Wyoming to Texas, the Vir
ginia creeper Is found generally In the
same location as Dolson lvv vine.
which It resembles somewhat in Its
habits nnd the shape of Its leaflets, but
It can be readily distinguished from
poison Ivy In that Its leaves are divided
into three to five leaflets to the stalk.
Moreover, though It Is sometimes sup
ported by aerial rootlets, like nolson
Ivy, It also has numerous tendrils like
tnose or tne grape vine, and its In
edible fruits are blue, with red stems.
and contain two or three seeds.
Poison sumac crows In moist eround.
usually In swamps or along low, miry
banks of streams and nonds. It oc
curs from New England to Florida, and
westward to Minnesota, Arkansas and
Louisiana. The poison sumac leaves
are readily distinguished from the
harmless sumac and species of ash,
elder and other shrubs and trees hav
ing a somewhat similar foliage, and
the character, appearance and color of
the fruits furnish other simple means
of Identification. Furthermore, the
poison sumac occurs on moist or
swampy land, and In drier locations is
found only along the borders ot
swamps or bogs. The number of leaf
lets Into which the leaves of the harm
less sumacs are divided range from 9
to 21 and 31, while the poison sumac
leaves divide Into 7 to 13 leaflets.
While many persons are of the opin
ion that contact with these plants is
not necessary to produce poisoning, It
Is probable that many cases supposed
to have originated In this way have
actually been due to direct or Indirect
contact. There are cases on record
showing that the smoke from burning
plants will give rise to Irritation, and
In some cases severe poisoning has re
sulted from this form of exposure. Re
garding the popular belief that soma
persons are wholly Immune, the In
vestigators state that there Is good
reason to believe absolute Immunity
does not exist, although It Is recog
nized that some persons are much less
susceptible than others.
How to Eradicate Poisonous Plants.
Eradication of these plants should
be widely undertaken and followed
up systematically.- Every landowner
should feel a measure of responsibility
in this matter. The simplest method
Is by grubbing, in which care should
be taken to cover the hands properly,
and also to prevent Infection by means
of the clothing. The plants In fields
may be destroyed by plowing them up
and putting in cultivated crops. Often
repeated mowing Is also effective. The
use of kerosene Is recommended where
Injury to other plants or trees Is not
to be feared. It may be applied with
a sprinkler or a spraying pump, nnd
In many case one application is suffi
cient. Arsenate of soda has been used
very successfully to kill poison Ivy on
trees six to ten inches In diameter
without Injury to the trees, as well as
on stone walls, buildings, and along

Warsaw. Newspaper advices and
official statements relative to the
mutiny of Polish troops at Kovno show
discrepancies which tend to confuse
the public as to the real situation
there. .
It is reported in official quarters the
revolt has been completely suppressed,
but messages to newspapers declare
the trouble is continuing and ihnt the
uprising has in many cases taken on
bolshevik characteristics.
It Is said several hundred bolshevik
prisoners of war have been released

Government statements relative to
the trouble have been given out by the
Polish Telegraph agency, which says
the mutineers, belonging to cavalry
and artillery units, organized soldiers'
councils, and taking up positions In the
outskirts of Kovno, opened a heavy
fire on the government buildings. After
quite serious fighting the mutiny was
put down, It is said, but no arrests
have since been made by the Polish

Oxford University Professor Gives Tip
on How to Take It from
Mercury, Too.
London. The alchemists' drenm of
producing gold from base metals Is not
extravagant, asserted Prof. Frederick
Soddy of the physical chemistry de
partment at Oxford, in a recent publi
cation. He tells how to do It.
"To get gold from mercury," he says,
"expel from the atom of mercury one
beta-particle, -which will make thal
lium ; then one alpha-particle, which
will turn the thallium Into gold. Or,
to get gold from lead, expel from the
atom of lead one alpha-particle, which
will turn It Into mercury, and proceed
as before."
