Seite 36 - I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was : man is but an ass, if he go about to expound this dream. Methought I was — there is no man can tell what. Methought I was, — and methought I had, — but man is but a patched fool, if he will offer to say what methought I had.
Seite 276 - CLASS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED COMPETENT FOR, THEIR DUTIES TILL THEY HAVE GIVEN PROOF OF POSSESSING A GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY, AND OF THE LAWS OF HEALTH. Were proof required of all teachers that they possessed such knowledge, before they were intrusted with the care and education of youth, schools of all classes would be driven to make Physiology a part of their regular course of instruction. Within the last few years, Physiology, in...
Seite 180 - ... having previously calculated the time when each envelope shall be unfolded, and allow the pill to produce the effects of their usual allowance. When this baneful habit has become confirmed, it is almost impossible to break it off; the torments of the opium-eater, when deprived of this stimulant, are as dreadful as his bliss is complete when he has taken it ; to him night brings the torments of hell, day the bliss of paradise.

I stitch down this membrane upon the corpus spongiosum, and thus, having covered each lip of the wound by mucous membrane,...
Seite 260 - Cooper, were fully developed and in the natural situation, and their nipples, arcol.-L- and glands presented nothing unusual in their appearance. Near the anterior margin of the axilla, a little higher up on each side, was situated another mamma, about one-sixth the size of the others. The nipples of these were small and flat, but when gently pressed, a milky fluid, which had all the external characters of the milk secreted by the other breasts, flowed copiously and readily from several ducts which...
Seite 179 - ... to make it more palatable, it is sometimes mixed with syrups or thickened juices; but in this form it is less intoxicating and resembles mead ; it is then taken with a spoon or is dried in small cakes, with the words ' Mash Allah,' ' the work of God,
Seite 380 - It cannot be doubted," says that eminent writer, " that the greater part of the nations of America belong to a race of men, who, isolated ever since the infancy of the world from the rest of mankind, exhibit in the nature and diversity of language, in their features and the conformation of their skull, incontestable proofs of an early and complete separation...
Seite 301 - We should carefully distinguish between erythema mercuriale and another, but more partial, eruption arising from the use of mercury. They both come on under similar circumstances; both seem to be excited by the first impression of mercury on the general system. Our attention is attracted to this latter eruption by our patient informing us that he fears he has got the itch, that he could scarcely get a wink of sleep for one or more nights preceding. He then exhibits on his hands and wrists an eruption...
