\ I OO in Plants Are Toxic The familiar saying about "Don't eat the daisies" applies even more so to Christmas holiday plants, judging from a warning issued by the Cooperative Extension Service. Many plants which add so much beauty to the Christmas scene are poisonous if eaten, and although they may not look appetizing to an adult, they may appear as candy to children. The poinsettia, for example, contains a juice which is so lethal that one leaf eaten by a small child can cause death. Holly berries are poisonous, and berries of the Christmas or Jerusalem cherry are toxic when eaten. The white berries of the mistletoe likewise have proved fatal. As a final word of caution, be careful in picking foliage and berries from woods or roadsides. Both poison ivy and poison oak present brilliantly colored leaves in the fall. All parts of these plants contain a toxic agent which can cause severe inflammation of the skin when contact is made, the Extension Service noted. MR. AND MRS. FLOYD M.
