PREFACE. 



Pope aays, " Half our knowledge we must snatcli, not 
take." If this be true of general knowledge, it is certainly 
true of the knowledge of medicine as it is taught in the schools 
of to-day. In view of this fact, there seems to be a real need 
for bookH which present their subjects in an assimilable form. 

At the request of many students the author has written this 
book with the hope that it may serve as an outline of Practice 
of Medicine, which shall be enlarged upon by diligent atten- 
dance upon lectures and critical observation at the bedside. 

In its preparation the writings of the following authors 
have been freely consulted : Striimpell, Osier, Fa^e, Brlstowe, 
Frerichs, Liebertneister, Vierordt, Eicbhorst, Wood, Koss, 
Gowers, Sansom, Henry, Tyson, Pepper, Paul, Murrell, Starr, 
Hilton, Duhring, Stelwagon, Van Harlingen, Tilbury Fox, 
Hjtrdawsy, Seller, Cohen, firowne, Jacobi, Bruce, Bruuton, 
Charcot, Dujarden-Beaumetz, Pavy, Mitchell, and Trousseau.

DISEASRS OF THE BI-OOD. 



Diagnosis. — The absence of high fever and nervous symp- 
toms will separate it from typhus fercr and cerebro-splnnl 
meningitie. The history and the absence of Bjiongy gums and 
of brawny induration of ihe muscles will separate it from 
scurvy. Previous health and the absence of hereditary ten- 
dency separate it from fnvmopkiUa. 

Prognosis. — Dej>Gnd8 on the severity. Mild cases recover 
in from one to two weeks; severe cases may prove fata! in a 
few days from exhaustion or hemorrhage into the brain. Re- 
lapses are common. 

Treatment. — Rest. Light, nutritious food. Arsenic, 
iron, turpentine, and the fluid extract of hamamelis are the 
«tost serviceable remedies.
