Bonduc Seeds.—These are seeds derived from several species of the genus Caesalpinia (Fam. Leguminosae), which are used in India as febrifuges, tonics, and antiperiodics. Heckel and Schlagdenhauffen have discovered in them a bitter principle (C. R. A. S., ciii, 89), probably identical with that previously isolated by Flückiger. (Pharmacographia, 2d ed., 212.)
