In the course of a short time, seldom exceeding a few days after the blister has been applied, the surface of the ulcer, however deep it may have been, is found to be on a level with that of the surrounding skin, — not, of course, through any process of reproduction, or filling up, but merely from the removal...

We know what wonderful decomposing action galvanism had on alkalies, under the hands of the illustrious Humphrey Davy ; but we do not know, nor have we any conception in the present...

I need scarcely describe to chemists the action of this salt, the principal...
Seite 54 - Thus, if the specific gravity of any specimen of urine be expressed in four figures, the two last will indicate the quantity of solids in a fluid ounce of the urine, within an error of little more than a grain, when the density does not exceed 1'030; above that number the error is a little greater.
