Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ...tissues of the body. The next question to be studied is the mechanism of the chlorin retention. The point especially treated in this paper is, whether the conditions of permeability of the lidne_v may be responsible for the retention, or whether the storing up is due to an active process in the tissues. This question has been treated in a very satisfactory manner, especially by Hutchison,2 and more recently by von Hosslin and Kashiwad0.3 Although these investigators concluded that the kidney plays an insignificant role, if any, in the process of chlorin retention in pneumonia, nevertheless it seemed of interest to control their conclusions experimentally by making a comparative study of the chlorin metabolism in three series of animals: namely (I) animals with experimental pneumonia; (2) animals with general pneumococcal infection; and (3) animals in which a pleural exudate had been produced by chemical means, i. 0., turpentine. Series I and 3 were carried out on dogs; series 2, on rabbits.'1 Received for publication, June 28, 1911. 'A complete discussion of the question may be found in the paper of Hutchison, four.

Pneumonia in dogs was produced by the method of Lamar and Meltzer.5 This consists in introducing five to ten cubic centimeters of a broth culture of virulent pneumococci through the larynx into a bronchus by means of a small stomach tube. Turpentine pleurisy in dogs was induced by employing the technique of Opie6 and that of Manwaring7 for obtaining 1euc0cyteSOne to two more
