  • And lastly, the _viburnum_, or way-faring-tree, growing also plentifully in every corner, makes pins for the yoaks of oxen; and superstitious people think, that it protects their cattel from being bewitch’d and us’d to plant the shrub about their stalls; ’tis certainly the most plyant and best bands to fagot with.
