with other recent researches, indicate that some of the theories upon which modem systems of ventilation are based are either without foundation or doubtful, and that the problem of securing comfort and health in inhabited rooms require consideration of the best . methods of preventing or disposing of dusts of various kinds, of properly regulating temperature and mois¬ ture, and of preventing the entrance of poisonous gases like carbonic oxid derived from heating and lighting apparatus, rather

To the Editor:\p=m-\Manyof the conflicting reports of Woodbridge's treatment of typhoid fever would give results similar to those obtained by Dr. Woodbridge if they would use capsules instead of tablets. Take a bottle of tablets that has been carried in your rig some time, use your tablets all out ; what have you left in your bottle? About one-eighth of your tablets in powder form. I have used in fifteen cases the Woodbridge treatment and have not lost a case that I have seen in the first ten days of the sickness. The following is the record of a unique case : Mr. A. H.,age 43 years. Seen Nov. 23,1895, 3 p.m. ; temperature 103.5 ; this continued within less than \ m=1/ 2\degree day and night until December 2, when he lost about three to four quarts of blood from bowel. Temperature 97 to 99 for two days ; then three days of 102.5 to 103 ; the next day 100, then reached normal on fifth day after hemorrhage, the eighteenth day of fever. His wife and two daughters had the same (typhoid) fever ; wife was sick about three weeks, daughters about fifteen or sixteen days. In conclusion would suggest : 1. Do not use tablets. 2. Capsule the medicine for the solution, leave it in a vial with a dropper and empty capsules to be used. If temperature is high I reduce temperature with acetanilid. Respectfully, F.
