The farina of the anthers of the flowers, is very narcotic and irritating ; people of a peculiar habit accidentally sleeping under the tree when in blossom, or even going near the flowers, are stupified and have their faces and limbs swollen...
˹ 36 - ... was the most potent of the Agnicijlas. He sent forth thirty-five sacha-, or branches, several of whom enjoyed extensive sovereignties. ' The world is the Pramar's,' is an ancient saying, denoting their extensive sway ; and the ' No-kote^ Maroost'hulli' signified the nine divisions into which the country, from the Sutledge to the ocean, was partitioned amongst them. Maheswar, Dhar, Mandoo, Oojein, Chandrabhaga, Cheetore, Aboo, Chandravati, M'how Maidana, Parmavati,Omrakote,Bekher,Lodurva, and...
˹ 104 - ... quarrels with a neighbouring Raja, and through his persuasion the French troops were allowed to assist in attacking the fort of Bobbili in the Vizagapatam district. The tragic termination of the assault is a well known subject in the Northern Circars. The Raja and his adherents massacred their wives and children rather than allow them to fall into the hands of hateful enemies, and then fell themselves bravely fighting against their foes. Vengeance however pursued Viziaram Raz, the instigator...
˹ 51 - Nath, represented always in a state of stupefaction from the use of intoxicating herbs, omitted to put out the sacred fire, which spread, and was likely to involve the -world in combustion ; when Brimha extinguished it with the sand, and hence the teebas of the valley. Such is the origin of the sanctity of Poshkur. In...
˹ 25 - Bhils, the autochthones (if such there be of any country) of Mewar. Besides making the teeka of blood from an incision in the thumb, the Oguna chief takes the prince by the arm and seats him on the throne, while the Oondree Bhil holds the salver of spices and sacred grains of rice * used in making the teeka. But the solemnity of being seated on the throne of Mewar is so expensive, that many of these rites have fallen into disuse. Juggut Sing was the last prince whose coronation was conducted with...
˹ 143 - Nyctanthes arbor tristis. The tubes of the corolla of the weeping nyctanthes, are brought from Mewar : considered heating : given in medicine, one tola a dose : used chiefly to dye yellow : two seers for one rupee.
˹ 133 - Harowtee, and is abundant, white in colour, like the katira and tragacanth gums, swells in water ; in dying cloth it is applied to those parts that the dye is not wished to touch : it is eaten in " luddoo -.
˹ 104 - ... if they met with much resistance, became as cowardly as they had before been violent, and resorted to flight ; fighting was not their object. In all their single combats and all assaults, they resorted to the excitement of opium, e'er commencing battle ; their own bards describe the eyes of the heroes as being red from opium.
˹ 129 - Bengal quince. With hindus, the leaves are sacred to Mata jee, .(from the milk of whose breast this tree is believed to have sprung up). The punsari or .druggists of Ajmere believe that one pice's size of the bark of the root of this tree, rubbed up with ghee, will, if given soon, recover a person who has taken an overdose of opium. A chemical examination of the fruit shows it to contain tannin, either pure or in combination ; a large amount of mucilage ; a concrete essential oil ; and an aromatic...
˹ 175 - The lower parts of the culms, called sirkunda, are made into outside cheeks for door ways, &c. ; the upper parts of t"he culms, called sirkee, are made into excellent neat and cheap mats, much used in thatching, &c. the floral leaves are made into "moonj," by separating the fibres, by beating the leaves ; this is very much used to make string and rope.
