Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...tumor in the left lateral ligament, a more elastic tumor in the right parametrium. The symptom of crepitation had entirely disappeared. Temperature at n A. M. 101.20 F., pulse 100, of good quality. In the afternoon arrangements were made to transfer the patient to a hospital. Since then I have lost track of the case. In this special case the antipyretic influence of Saloquinine on the temperature is quite conspicuous. On August 2 the temperature had risen to almost 106 F., and 12 hours later after 120 grains of the drug had been taken it went down 4.50 F., a longer remission than any within the four preceding days. The effect of the large doses persisted during the following n hours, as comparatively little Saloquinine was given during that time; the temperature did not rise beyond 1030 F.

M. of August 6, the temperature, 101.20 F. on August 7, took its lowest drop during the ten days of my attendance on the case. Also the tonic effect of Saloquinine is evident, especially when we take notice of how low the patient was the day after the drug was withdrawn, how she began to improve after its reinstatement, and how the kidneys were stimulated through its action.

G., aged 51 years, laborer, of neurasthenic disposition, temperate, but poorly nourished and anemic, has suffered for the last year with hyperesthesia of the mucous membrane of the bowels, especially of the colon.
