Did you perchance mean Antares?
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An arboreous genus of plants, natural order Urticaceæ, suborder Artocarpeæ, of the East Indies and Malayan archipelago. It includes the famous upas-tree, A. toxicaria, one of the largest trees in the forests of Java, the poisonous qualities of which have been greatly exaggerated. It is harmless except when it has been recently felled or when the bark has been extensively wounded, in which cases the effluvium causes a severe cutaneous eruption. Sacks are made of the bark of A. innoxia by soaking and beating the trunk till the bark is loosened and can be removed whole.
“The poison is prepared from the sap of the upas tree, _antiaris toxicaria_, which is heated until it becomes a dark paste.”
“The _ipok_ called "_upas_" by the Malays and "_antiaris toxicaria_" by botanists is a tree which supplies a poisonous juice to the Sakais of the plain.”
“Even in the climate and soil congenial to it, the _antiaris toxicaria_ is rare; but wherever discovered is sure to be frequently visited, if in”
“(_antiaris toxicaria_); they had kindled a fire beneath it, building it close to the trunk -- in fact, against it; the smoke had ascended among its leaves; the heat had caused a sudden exudation of the sap; and the envenomed vapour floating about upon the air had freely found its way both into their mouths and nostrils.”
