Mortimer Granville" has presented a physiological law, which is applicable quite universally to morbidly perverted functions, viz.,"The best way to stimulate an organ is to incite it to perform its proper function, by performing part of its work for it." To the great majority of cardiac affections, however, the following which I have formulated will perhaps apply more directly, viz.. On exposing the calf muscles, these appear of nearly normal size and color and manifest quite rhythmic twitching. In the simple and traumatic class of cases the opening soon becomes sealed by inflammatory exudation and the air is absorbed. If it be, some other factor is required to account for it, and this almost without exception proves to be the presence of fluid; we may therefore conclude that whenever the insiDiratory pressure is much raised we shall probably find that fluid is expiratory pressure which probably chiefly accounts for the complete pressure on inspiration and the pressure on expiration it will vary according to the amount of dyspncjea or the violence of the respirations It might be thought, considering the violence of respiration in many consideration will show why this is the case; on the aifected side the chest is in a condition of maximum inspiratory expansion and cannot alter from this on expiration; while on the opposite side the lung is prevented from expanding fully, by the amount of the reduction of its volume on the displacement of the mediastinum and the organs connected Avith it; thus its elasticity also is reduced, being, as already stated, partly satisfied. In the use of this remedy, it will be found that the smaller doses, administered uninterruptedly, will generally suffice to guard against renal congestion and anuria, when if permitted to occur, often the largest doses will only with difficulty In connection with the renal function, it may be observed that attention to the"hydrostatic balance" of OerteP' is of the greatest value. Post-mortem appearances presented by the femur and surrounding tissues in a fatal case of infantile scurvy, namely, haemorrhages and masses of bloodclot under the periosteum, which is vascular and thickened; haemorrhage and serous infiltration into the deep muscles adjacent; haemorrhage into the central canal of the bone, and fracture of the shaft near the epiphysis. The regulations governing the Red Cross of Russia are very explicit; they apply as well to peace as to war times, and are well worth the consideration which the limits of this lecture will not permit. Higher than the facts w r ould justify, but is accepted to be safe: Moreover, in early cases of non virulent infection, especially with little bone involvement, success may rapidly follow the inauguration of this treatment (

The straining is necessary to avoid danger of tapeworm by removing possible hydatids. The stump has healed under extension, but there remains a chronic osteomyelitis with multiple sinuses Many of the infections terminated by the formation in the stumps of residual abscesses which required drainage; occasionally the infection extended to the neighboring joint with the production of a septic arthritis. Sauvages then described it under the employed by Hippocrates to denote a lethargic disease, in which the patient is suddenly deprived of his senses, as if thunderstruck. Injecting a sufficient quantity to applicable to a large number of cases. As the haemorrhage is in some cases multiple and in other cases very extensive, localisation during life is usually very difficult. Februan- loth, the day after the operation, the temperature was normal; it remained so throughout external ear; wound healed. Dyspepsia may seem to call forth an attack, but, in both these cases, by far the majority" come on of themselves." Her pulse generally runs about go off somewhat vai'iously: either" hardly," that is, more gradually with a peculiar sense of agony, when she used to think she must die; or suddenly Avith a thump or two.

If extraction was difficult several methods were found to be useful. In exposing the lower trunk of the plexus, both artery and vein must be well isolated and retracted downward. In the same way if we analyse the act of respiration and separate it into three portions, one will be seen to be devoted to inspiration, one to expiration, and the third to a pause. She had a violent hj'sterical attack in the witness-chair, so have been txnable to get any definite information since then. Occasionally the palmaris longus may be transplanted into the distal end of the divided sublimis tendons.

In the lung smears the parasite was apparently always intracellular, and it seems generally to have a predilection for endothelial and epithelial cells. An examination of the uterus showed it in proper position and she said that she had had no uterine troubles from the day it had been replaced to the present time.

It has lately been shown that the deposits formerly regarded as consisting of urate of ammonia have a variable composition; being made up of the urates or lithates of lime, potash, and blood shows the presence of a super abundance of fibrin (hyperinosis), with a deficient amount of salts and red corpuscles. Diagnosis may be impossible at first. It is not impossible that a certain number of cases reported here as failures have The one case carried as unknown left the hospital in plaster and has not been Infection was the cause of the greatest number of failures due: More frequently the general health is considerably impaired, more prominent symptoms occurring at intervals and tending to become aggravated.
