NOTES.

Treatment of the Typhoid Tongue.-Coakley says that the dry, parched tongue and lips should be frequently moistened with a mixture of i part glycerin and 4 parts rose water. The sluggish granulations following the fissures are best stimulated to healthy healing by daily applications of silver nitrate solution (dram to ounce).

Diphtheria Antitoxin by the Mouth.-W. Campbell M'Donnell (quoted in Medical Times) reports a well marked case of diphtheria, proved bacteriologically, which was promptly cured by two doses of 1500 units each of dry antitoxin given by the mouth on the second and the third day of illness. Another case was treated by rectal injection of antitoxin with the same beneficial results.

Enanthem of Smallpox.-- According to Coakley, the eruption of smallpox may be found on the hard and soft palate, tonsil, pharyngeal wall, and occasionally on the mucous membrane of the cheeks and tongue, twenty-four hours before it occurs on the skin. The number of lesions is usually from six to twelve except in hemorrhagic cases, when they are very numerous and purpuric in character.

Nasal Influenza. In the nasal type of this disease, says Coakley, it is very necessary to contract thoroughly the swollen and congested mucous membrane so as to allow free drainage from the accessory sinuses. This is best accomplished by a spray of suprarenal extract, made by mixing 10 grains of the powdered extract with a dram of half-saturated aqueous boric acid solution and filtering after macerating for half an hour.

Acute Dysentery.-W. J. Buchanan (British Medical Journal, April 13) reports 855 cases of acute dysentery treated by the saline method, with but nine deaths. The solution consists of a dram of sodium sulphate to the ounce of fennel water. A dram of the solution is given four to eight times daily, 'till every trace of blood and mucus has disappeared from the stools. The accompanying diet should consist of boiled milk, tyre and rice-water.

EDITORIAL DEPARTMENT.

Editor, DENVER MEDICAL TIMES,

Dear Doctor:-Having been requested to state my impressions of the late meeting of the Colorado State Medical Society for publication in the DENVER MEDICAL TIMES, I take pleasure in responding, and can sum them up in a few words and say, as a whole, they are very favorable. The attendance was larger than any previous meeting; there were present a greater number of men from different parts of the state than heretofore. There was manifested greater interest and enthusiasm during the entire session than was noticeable at previous meetings. The work of the society has always been of a high order, and this meeting has been no exception in that respect. There were too many papers for the allotted time; consequently, the discussion of papers was curtailed, and the result to be derived from extensive discussion was lost. Many a good paper is passed to the Publication Committee and oblivion, which, if time permitted, would be discussed and the object for which it was written more forcibly brought to the notice of every physician in the hall, and its benefits more widely disseminated.

We all have a better comprehension and lasting recollection of the paper and demonstration of cases by Dr. A. S. Lobingier on “Resection of the Ribs in Empyema," and Dr. C. A. Powers' exhibition of a case of “Double Chopart Amputation of Feet,” by virtue of their widespread discussion and demonstration. If same could be brought out on every paper, we would derive more from them.

The symposium on “Diseases of the Kidney" aroused interest and was well received.

The gathering of statistics on “Tuberculosis in Colorado" by the Committee is a deserving work, well begun, and the continuance of the Committee is proof of its approval by the Society.

Wednesday evening's entertainment was instructive and enjoyable and reflects great credit upon the Committee and Doctors Mitchell, Freeman and Corwin. Dr. Munn's address was listened to with close attention, and it well merited the hearty applause with which it was received.

The election of Dr. Corwin, of Pueblo, for President for the ensuing year, was a deserved recognition of his interest and work in behalf of the society for years past, and was the crowning feature of a very successful meeting.

Yours truly,
Sol. G. KAHN,

Lead ville, Colo.
