The Golden Belt Medical Society.

The regular mid-winter meeting of the Golden Belt Medical Society was called to order by President Murphy at 2:30 P. M., in the court house at Junction City, Kansas, January 3, 1895, following members being present: Drs. Murphy, La Fevre, Fowler, Lindsay, Neptune, McClintock, Roberts, Sheldon, Steadman, Felty, Searl, Harvey, Daugherty, Lyman, McVey, King and Moyer.

Applications for membership were received from Dr. J. W. Neptune, of Chapman, Dr. L. J. Lyman of Manhattan, and Dr. D. J. Moyer of Junction City; and the committee on elections reporting favorably on the above applicants, they were upon motion to suspend the rules, elected by acclamation.

Two clinical cases having been presented, the secretary moved that a committee be appointed to investigate, and report upon them; and the chair appointed for the first case, Drs. Lindsay, Neptune and Harvey; and for the second Drs. Daugherty, McVey and Felty.

Dr. W. E. Fowler, of Brookville, read a very interesting paper, entitled "Pneumonia," wherein he reviewed the salient points of this subject, and laid particular stress on the treatment. Profitable discussion ensued, participated in by Drs. Sheldon, Daugherty, Roberts, Felty and Fowler.

Dr. W. S. Lindsay, on behalf of the committee, reported the first clinical case to be one of chorea in an adult woman, recommending a line of treatment which he believed would succeed in materially benefiting the patient. Further discussion was indulged in by Drs. Sheldon, Daugherty and Lindsay.

Following came a timely paper on Typhoid Fever by Dr. P. Daugherty of Junction City. The doctor believed this disease to be one of a preventable nature, providing an adequate prophylaxis is established and maintained. Boil your drinks and cook your food, and you cannot have typhoid fever." The clinical aspects of typhoid fever, as seen here in central Kansas, was ably depicted from the author's personal experience. Under treatment, the writer emphasized the necessity of properly disinfecting the discharges of the patient, in crder to prevent the spread of the disease through contamination of the water and food supplies. Dr. Daugherty says, "I have accomplished but very little by medication in typhoid fever, and have little faith in any specific for the disease," and believes this to be the present verdict of the best medical minds.

Long discussion followed the reading of this paper, in which the various phases, and more especially that portion relating to treatment were reviewed by Drs. Sheldon, Lindsay, Fowler, McClintock, Lyman, Searl, Roberts, Moyer and Daugherty.

Dr. Daugherty, as chairman of the committee appointed to investigate the second clinical case, stated that it was one of nasal mucous polypi, of long standing, and in spite of vigorous and persistent removal of the tumors and cauterization of their bases, they had continued to form, and at the present time they nearly completely filled the nasal cavities. The committee thought the only treatment which offered any hope of success would be the building up of the patient's nutrition, the thorough and complete removal of the tumors, and entire destruction of that portion of the nasal mucous membrane from which they sprung.

Dr. J. W. Neptune, of Chapman, presented a case, and read a short paper on "Ichthyosis." The case was that of a girl some eight years of age. A small red spot was noticed about the middle of the left leg, on the lateral aspect at birth. This spot has continued to develop and spread, until the parts affected now extend from the toes nearly to hip joint, being confined entirely to the anterior and lateral aspects of the leg, no other part of the body being involved in the process. The case has been under the care of a number of coin petent physicians, who have instituted all manner of treatment likely to do good in such cases, but all to no avail.


The doctor had recommended only the use of some mild emolient, in order to keep the scales softened, and was of the opinion that no line of treatment offered any hope, in so far as the cure of the disease was concerned. The case was an extremely interesting one, from the fact of its having dated its commencement before the birth of the child, and was, therefore, strictly congenital; this disease rarely showing itself until considerably later in life; certainly as a rule not before the second


Discussed by Dr. Daugherty, Lindsay and Sheldon. These speakers agreed with the essayist in all essential particulars, and believed that he had given a correct prognosis.

On motion,the society adjourned to meet in the Bartlett Hotel parlors at 7.30 P.M. President Murphy again called the meeting to order promptly at 7:30 P. M., and the regular program being continued, Dr. J. W. Felty of Abilene, presented a paper, in which he reported three cases of gastric carcinoma. The first was that of a heavy drinker; male; 38 years of age; carpenter by occupation. Frequently repeated examinations during the six months prior to his death, showed sometimes free hydrochloric acid to be absent; at others present. This fact lead the doctor to think the case to be one other than cancer, and the true diagnosis was only determined on autopsy; which latter showed "an ulcer as large as a silver dollar on the greater curvature, in close proximity to the pylorus." In regard to the presence or absence of free hydrochloric acid in the stomach during carcinoma, the essayist states, that "Rosenheim in recent years has handed down the solution to the question, as will be observed from the results of the autopsy. Rosenheim has shown in cases in which cancer develops in the fase of an old ulcer, hydrochloric acid may be present throughout the course.'

The second case was that of a man 67 years of age, whose stomach on autopsy was found to be dilated to the extent of holding eight pints of fluid. There was a scirrhus of the pylorus, which extended to a part of the lesser curvature, and also involved from three to four inches of the duodenum.

Case third, a woman, aet. 49, who had a typical case of gastric cancer. On autopsy the stomach was so conracted by the cancerous formation as to contain only two ounces-this being its utmost capacity. The adjacent abdominal organs were agglutinated by the extension of the disease from the stomach. This is certainly among the smallest cancerously contracted stomachs on record.

The removed stomachs from the first and third cases were passed around to the members, for examination.

This paper called forth very interesting and profitable discussion, participated in by Drs. King, Daugherty, La Fevre, McClintock, Lindsay, Sheldon and Lyman. Dr. J. W. Felty announced the death of two of our most worthy members, Drs. Geo. E. Harvey of Junction City, and Reid Alexander of Topeka, as having occurred since our last meeting, and moved that a committee of three be appointed to draft suitable resolutions expressive of our loss in the two above named brothers. Accordingly the chair appointed Drs. Lindsay, Sheldon and McVey to fulfill this mission, their report to be submitted at the next regular meeting.

On motion of Dr. Felty, Abilene was chosen as the place of next meeting. At the society's request, Dr. W. E. McVey reported at some length and detail the measures that had been adopted to secure medical legislation. He seemed to very much doubt the ability of the profession to be able to effect the passage of a suitable and competent medical bill during the coming meeting of the legislature. The various features of a medical bill, and the prospects of obtaining suitable legislation was discussed by Drs. Daugherty, Lindsay, Searl, Felty, La Fevre and McClintock.

On motion, the society adjourned to meet on the first Thursday in April, 1895.
E. B. LA FEVRE, Secretary.
