Page 174 - (Thompson Yates' Laboratories Report, vol. iii. part 2, p. 174), Dr. Christopher says: "With a knowledge of the ubiquity of native Malaria, the method of infection of Europeans becomes abundantly clear. The reputed unhealthiness or healthiness of stations is seen at once to be dependent on the proximity or non-proximity of native huts. The attack of Malaria after a tour up country, the Malaria at military stations like Prah-su, the abundance of Malaria on railways, are all explicable when the extraordinary...
Page 166 - Frost is smooth and accurate and preserves much of the beauty of the original. It is one of the most important of recent contributions to the study of literature.

Page 173 - Professor Koch, viz., the searching out of all cases of Malaria and rendering these harmless by curing them with quinine. By this means he was able to greatly reduce Malaria in the on-coming season at Stephansort. In his fifth report to the German Imperial Health Bureau, Koch sums up as follows : " The results of our experiment, which has lasted nearly six months, have been so uniform and unequivocal that they cannot bo regarded as accidental.

Page 237 - Lastly, we observed that previously fed and fertilized insects would lay a second batch of eggs after a second meal of blood without a second fertilization, but never laid a second batch of eggs without a second meal of blood.
Page 181 - Fallen von Abdominaltyphus, hanfig wesentlich kleiner " ; and Danielst " concludes that as a test for the prevalence of malaria the spleen test may be worse than useless, unless race and age are taken into account." Ross, we believe, found in Freetown, Sierra Leone, very few enlarged spleens amongst the troops suffering from malaria there. But in India there exists little doubt that amongst natives and Europeans enlarged spleen is one of the commonest occurrences...
