Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...and Legendre, 23, without loss. Their average total mortality is 40.35 per cent Our own loss is 9 per cent, of the mothers and 18 per centi of the offspring. When it occurred in the puerperal state our loss was 62 per cent., Olshausen's 75 per cent. Mayer reports two series of cases of variola in the enciente, in one of which 17.2 per cent, of the mothers died, 31 per cent, aborting, and in the other 38.2 per cent, died, while 46.8 per centi aborted. Our maternal loss is 15.39 per cent., our foetal, 46.15 per cent. Respectable homoeopathists do not lose more than 12 per cent, of their pregnant typhoid patients and only 24 per centi of the offspring. Charpentier reports 52.8 per cent, of miscarriages and 4 per cent, of premature births. On reckoning the slight chances of survival in the latter class the total infantile mortality is at least 55 per cent., and more probably 56 per cent. He naively adds: "The prognosis as regards the mother is more favorable." It is to be hoped it is! Malaria has not been provocative of serious consequences to the enciente when treated homoeopathically. Charpentier states that pregnancy is interrupted in 41.3 per cent, of such women when suffering from this disorder. Pneumonia occasions death in 14.28 per cent, of those attacked in the class of women under consideration, and an equal loss of offspring, although there are not by any means always two deaths in a single case. Rican's figures are 27.90 per cent. and 48.84 per cent., respectively; Chatelain's 51.28 per centi and 48.72 per cent., and Matton's, 26.32 per cent, and 47.37 per cent., or a general rate of 35 per cent, and 48.33 per cent. Of consumptives who become pregnant we lose 25 per cent, within a year, and 13 per centi of the more
