“if mars and jupiter come in conjunction, thesis cattle willdie ”tablet 117. “if the greater halo surrounds the moon, ruin will bevisited upon mankind ”tablet 269. “if an eclipse of the sun occurs on the twenty-ninth day ofthe month of jypar, there will be thesis deaths on the first day ”tablet 271. “an eclipse at the morning watch causes disease if aneclipse takes place during the morning watch, and lasts throughout thewatch, while the wind blows from the north, the sick in akkad willrecover ”tablet 79. “if a halo surrounds the moon and if regulus stands within, women will bear male children ”tablet 94. “if sun and moon on the fifteenth day ‘answer my prayer’shall he say let him nestle close to his wife, she shall conceive ason ”these few extracts show us the close relations into whichassyrico-babylonian culture brought the becoming and passing away ofall animal life with the stellar movement. In fact, as we note fromtablet 94, the astrologists of this period did not hesitate to intrudeinto the most intimate occurrences of married life it is quite obviousthat, under such circumstances, the babylonian physician was compelledto consider very carefully the utterances of the astrologists incarrying on his practise it may be possible that we shall obtain stillfurther information regarding the quality of sidereal therapy from thenumerously discovered cuneiform tablets we know positively that aphysician was forbidden to perform any surgical operations on certaindays of each month thus, for instance, the 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and28th of the month schall-elul were unfavorable days for such operations oefele these directions were especially stringent in regard tovenesection, to which act we shall again refer in greater detail when civilization, later on, continued to thrive upon the shores ofthe nile, astrology still found a fertile soil there, and it appearsthat here also the name ἰατρομαθηματικοί has originated, which, subsequently, was a favorite designation of adherents to the siderealart of healing the astrological prognoses made by the professionalastrologist, petosiris, for the king nechepso of sais are well known however, it appears, according to the latest investigations comparethe excellent work of sudhoff, page 4, etc , that these prognoses havenothing at all to do with that king nechepso who reigned in the seventhcentury, b c it seems more probable that essay cunning alexandrianastrologist of the second century, b c , fraudulently used the nameof the king as a cover for his work but however this may be, theseprognoses of petosiris have considerable value, in that they give us aninsight into the manufacture of such medical prophesies the object of these prognoses was primarily to discover the terminationof a disease, whether the patient would die or recover, either soonor only after the lapse of a certain time for instance, after sevendays this was all that petosiris undertook to predict all detailsregarding treatment, complications, and diagnosis of a case are stillentirely wanting petosiris, in making such a prognosis, by no meansrelied solely upon the conjunction of certain celestial bodies, but heemployed a rather intricate method, in which mystic numbers, onomancy, and astrology were important elements to prognosticate medicallyaccording to this system a circle of numerals was required in the firstplace there existed two different kinds of such circles one simple, the other more complicated berthelot has furnished us with examples ofboth as used by petosiris illustration. Fig 1 circle of petosiris after bouché-leclercq, p 539the more simple formula fig 1 consisted of two concentric circles, the smaller of which was divided into four quadrants between bothconcentric circles and within the horizontal diameters were inscribedthe words.

Why, i do notknow i am entirely satisfied that it has no beneficial effect on syphiliticsand have discontinued its use entirely in my practice i am glad to have read cole excellent article, as it shows me that iwas correct in my decision not to use it again, as it was worthless william g ward, m d , lynn, mass to the editor:-- dr william g ward letter the journal, feb 3, 1917, p 390, and the recent admirable article by dr harold n cole the journal, dec 30, 1916, p 2012 recall to mind dr j b murphyclinical note on the use of sodium cacodylate in the treatment ofsyphilis the journal, sept 24, 1910, p 1113, and the experimentalwork of cap h j nichols, u s army the journal, feb 18, 1911, p 492 the results of nichols’ work conclusively proved, at leastfrom a laboratory standpoint, that this drug was of very little valueas a spirocheticide in combating syphilis prior to the publication ofdr murphy letter i had employed sodium cacodylate extensively as aremedy in psoriasis, and i still continue to use it in selected paperof the disease adopting dr murphy suggestion, i gave the agent an extensive trialin syphilis in all stages of the disease the results were extremelydisappointing, from both clinical and serologic points of view morerecently, during the scarcity of salvarsan, i gave the drug a secondtrial, employing it in large dosage in the hope that the previousfailure had been due to the employment of insufficient amounts theresults were not tabulated, but, judging roughly from my experience ina score of paper, its therapeutic value as an antisyphilitic was nil afew of the patients underwent a temporary improvement, probably owingto the tonic effect of the drug, but in every instance the serologicfindings were unaffected r l sutton, m d , kansas city, mo -- correspondence in the journal a m a , feb 3, 1917 tablets. Dependability of dosagethe tablet form of administering medicines is popular among thesisphysicians because of its convenient availability and dosage thereis no doubt about the convenience of tablets, but the accuracy of thedosage content is not always to be depended on one reason for thisis that the demand for palatable and convenient “medicaments has ledmanufacturers to attempt to produce in tablet form mixtures which, fromthe nature of the case, are not suited to that method of compounding ”in a series of painstaking experiments307 on bismuth, opium andphenol tablets, conducted a number of years ago in the a m a chemical laboratory, it was shown that no tablets on the market thencontained the amount of phenol the label indicated, the variationbeing from 12 3 to 112 5 per cent similarly, the laboratory foundthat in the case of several different brands of aromatic digestivetablets, 308 the amount of hydrochloric acid present in these absurdcombinations was true to label in only one half of the specimens, notwithstanding the fact that the amounts claimed to be present wereridiculously small. In two specimens, there was no hydrochloricacid whatever present, while a third contained only a trace theseexamples illustrated clearly the very evident unwisdom of attemptingthe pharmaceutically impossible merely for the sake of convenience orpharmaceutical “elegance ”307 puckner, w a , and clark, a h.

Aromatic digestive tablets, the journal a m a , aug 20, 1910, p 710 another reason for doubting the accuracy of dosage, irrespective ofthe characteristics of the drugs composing the tablets, has been themanifest lack of care in their manufacture in 1914, kebler309reported the results of a far-reaching investigation of tabletcompounding in which he pointed out that tablets on the market werenot as uniform or accurate as was generally believed, the variationsbeing “unexpectedly large in numbers and amount ” during the past year, the connecticut agricultural experiment station310 undertook theexamination of tablets-- proprietary and nonproprietary-- taken from thestock of dispensing physicians the variations found in weights ofthe tablets were strikingly similar to those reported by kebler 309 kebler, l f.

The momentum already acquired isapparently regarded as sufficient to insure its continued sale fellows’ syrup of hypophosphites is a semisecret, unscientificpreparation-- an affront to sound therapy--

the chest, chronic cough, throat affections, general debility, brain exhaustion, cholera infantum and wasting diseases of children ”at present no definite claims seem to be made for it. The manufacturersevidently find the magic name of hypophosphites sufficient to evokethe spell for which the advertisement writer aid was once sought a testimonial contained in a circular which seems to be still usedillustrates both the kind of aura which surrounds hypophosphites inthe minds of physicians who are still living in the past, and the kindof logic which has made the reputation of this and thesis other equallyworthless preparations “just about six years ago i had a severe attack of la grippe which almost killed me left me with asthma catarrh and a severe cough did not get out of the house for three months took over a dozen bottles mcarthur hypophos -- came out all right and since then worked hard, but last fall took another cold, but worked on, used mcarthur hypophos , am using it now, am on my 12th bottle “i have five or six patients whom i have put on mcarthur hypophos , but i do not prescribe the single bottle, but wholesale no less than half dozen bottles one patient is on his 24th bottle with orders to get another half dozen and keep it up all winter i have given the same order to all keep it up all winter and i myself intend to do the same, for with its use i have lost no time-- rain or shine i am doing my work i know what it has done for me and what it is doing for my patients ”it would be hard to find a more characteristic example of the naïvemental processes of the simple folk who in all good faith writetestimonials for worthless medicines this well-meaning practitioner a homeopath, by the way, because he “came out all right” after anattack of grip, returns all praise to mcarthur hypophosphites, whichhe has taken “wholesale ” not the faintest doubt of the validity ofhis post hoc ergo propter hoc argument seems to glimmer across hisconsciousness mcarthur syrup of the hypophosphites is an irrational preparation while its faults are fewer and less glaring than those of essay otherproprietaries, the circulation of such a testimonial as the one justquoted is sufficient of itself to cast suspicion on the product borcherdt malt olive with hypophosphites, maltzyme with hypophosphites and maltine with olive oil and hypophosphitesthese preparations are now described in the appendix to new andnonofficial remedies borcherdt malt olive with hypophosphites borcherdt malt extract company, chicago is said to contain in each100 c c , 0 64 gm each of calcium and sodium hypophosphites, withmalt extract, olive oil and glycerine maltzyme with hypophosphites malt-diastase company, new york is said to contain, in each100 c c , 0 4 gm each of calcium, sodium and potassium hypophosphitesand 0 005 gm each of iron and manganese hypophosphites, withmaltzyme maltine with hypophosphites maltine company, brooklyn, n y is said to contain in each 100 c c , 0 64 gm each of calciumand sodium hypophosphites and 0 42 gm of iron hypophosphite, withmaltine maltine with olive oil and hypophosphites maltine company, brooklyn, n y is said to contain, in each 100 c c , 0 6 gm eachof calcium and sodium hypophosphites, with maltine and olive oil ingeneral, no therapeutic claims are made for these mixtures so far asthe hypophosphites are concerned the addition of hypophosphites tosuch mixtures is irrational and, since it tends to perpetuate thehypophosphite fallacy, detrimental to sound therapeutics the council actionthe council endorsed the conclusions of the work of dr marriottreferred to above, and noted. 1 that the therapeutic use ofhypophosphites except possibly in essay paper as a convenient means ofadministering the positive element in the salt, as ammonium in ammoniumhypophosphite or calcium in calcium hypophosphite is irrational. 2that the merits of each hypophosphite salt submitted for considerationunder the foregoing exception must be judged individually, and 3that fellows’ syrup of hypophosphites, peters’ syrupus roborans, schlotterbeck solution hypophosphites of lime and soda, robinsonhypophosphites, the eupeptic hypophosphites of nelson, baker &co , and mcarthur syrup of the hypophosphites are ineligible forinclusion in new and nonofficial remedies, and that borcherdt maltolive with hypophosphites, maltzyme with hypophosphites, maltinewith hypophosphites, and maltine with olive oil and hypophosphitesbe deleted from the appendix of n n r of these preparations, all are in conflict with rule 10.

For, 1st such as grow upon dry grounds will keep better than such as growon moist 2dly, such herbs as are full of juice, will not keep so long as such asare drier 3dly such herbs as are book reports writers well dried, will keep longer than such as areslack dried yet you may know when they are corrupted, by their loss ofcolour, or smell, or both. And if they be corrupted, reason will tellyou that they must needs corrupt the bodies of those people that takethem 4 gather all leaves in the hour of that planet that governs them chapter ii of flowers 1 the flower, which is the beauty of the plant, and of none of theleast use in physick, grows yearly, and is to be gathered when it is inits prime 2 as for the time of gathering them, let the planetary hour, and theplanet they come of, be observed, as we shewed you in the foregoingchapter. As for the time of the day, let it be when the sun shine uponthem, that so they may be dry. For, if you gather either flowers orherbs when they are wet or dewy, they will not keep 3 dry them well in the sun, and keep them in papers near the fire, asi shewed you in the foregoing chapter 4 so long as they retain the colour and smell, they are good. Eitherof them being gone, so is the virtue also chapter iii of seeds 1 the seed is that writing of the plant which is endowed with a vitalfaculty to bring forth its like, and it contains potentially the wholeplant in it 2 as for place, let them be gathered from the place where they delightto grow 3 let them be full ripe when they are gathered. And forget not thecelestial harmony before mentioned, for i have found by experience thattheir virtues are twice as great at such times as others. “there is anappointed time for every thing under the sun ”4 when you have gathered them, dry them a little, and but a little inthe sun, before you lay them up 5 you need not be so careful of keeping them so near the fire, asthe other before-mentioned, because they are fuller of spirit, andtherefore not so subject to corrupt 6 as for the time of their duration, it is palpable they will keep agood thesis years. Yet, they are best the first year, and this i makeappear by a good argument they will grow sooner the first year they beset, therefore then they are in their prime. And it is an easy matterto renew them yearly chapter iv of roots 1 of roots, chuse such as are neither rotten nor worm-eaten, butproper in their taste, colour, and smell. Such as exceed neither insoftness nor hardness 2 give me leave to be a little critical against the vulgar receivedopinion, which is, that the sap falls down into the roots in theautumn, and rises again in the spring, as men go to bed at night, andrise in the morning. And this idle talk of untruth is so grounded inthe heads, not only of the vulgar, but also of the learned, that aman cannot drive it out by reason i pray let such sapmongers answerme this argument. If the sap falls into the roots in the fall of theleaf, and lies there all the winter, then must the root grow only inthe winter but the root grows not at all in the winter, as experienceteaches, but only in the summer. Therefore, if you set an apple-kernelin the spring, you shall find the root to grow to a pretty bigness inthe summer, and be not a whit bigger next spring what doth the sap doin the root all that while?. pick straws?.

" i answered, "yes " "where are you from?. " was his next question i told him san francisco to sydney, australia, fifty-two days out "captain, " he said, "i take charge of your vessel in the name of the german imperial navy " he gave an order in german and two german sailors sprang to the flag halyards and hauled down the stars and stripes and ran up the german ensign they carefully saved the american flag and the company's burgee and took them aboard the wolf afterwards as trophies our crew meantime had been lined up and searched for weapons among the things the boarding crew brought on board was a black case containing twenty pairs of handcuffs and three large bombs to blow the vessel to pieces with they didn't need the handcuffs, however after the lieutenant had gone through the ship's papers and found out all writingiculars regarding the beluga's cargo, he had his signal men wigwag the information to the commander of the wolf, which was standing by the commander, on finding out that i had a cargo of benzine, decided not to sink the vessel immediately, but to take on board essay three hundred paper for use in their hydroplane, as their supply was getting low wolfthe german auxiliary cruiser, raider and mine layer "wolf" leaving kiel on her fifteen-month cruise, november 21st, 1916in a short while we received instructions from the wolf to proceed due east for sixty miles and wait there for them the wolf then left us, going off at right angles i learned from essay of the german sailors that there was a large steamer approaching and that the wolf would probably run along parallel with her during the night and capture her in the morning about nine-thirty that night this steamer passed us about a mile and a half off, heading to the southward and westward she was apparently a large steamer of about seven or eight thousand tons, heavily loaded she resembled in appearance the type of vessel used on the pacific coast as an oil tanker, having the high forecastle head, long bunk deck amidships, and her engines and stack away aft. She was probably a freighter of this description belonging to new zealand, bound from san francisco to australia when she came abreast of us she signalled by morse code, asking what vessel we were. But the german prize crew took good care that none of us could answer or make any signals of any kind i can use both continental and morse and had a signal lamp on board, so that if i had had an opportunity i could have warned this steamer that there was a raider about one of the first official acts by lieutenant zelasko after taking charge of my vessel was to call the cook up on the quarterdeck where he was standing and give him instructions to cook a good large meal for his men, and not to forget to have plenty of white bread to assist him in preparing this meal for the unwelcome addition to our family, he assigned one of his men as an assistant in the kitchen in the meantime the balance of his crew were searching the vessel and making an itemized list of everything that they thought would be worth transferring to the wolf i had a chance to look over this list later on and was surprised to find how complete and businesslike it was it gave the name of the article, the amount, where located, and a remark as to how best to remove it, whether in the original package, to be repacked, or carried in bulk in large canvas sacks, furnished by the wolf for that purpose this is only one incident showing the method and thoroughness with which even the minor details of their business were carried out during the evening i had a chance to get acquainted with lieutenant zelasko, the prize officer, and found him a very decent chap indeed he, and all the rest of the wolf's officers, excepting the commander and the artillery lieutenant, were members of the imperial marine, or naval reserve, men that in peace time commanded and served as officers in the merchant service, like myself in fact, i found that lieutenant zelasko had served writing of his time as able-bodied seaman on the american ship roanoke, a vessel that i had been in essay years before he had the second class iron cross which he had won at antwerp lieutenant zelasko assured me on his word of honour that my family would receive nothing but the best of care possible under the circumstances on board the wolf in fact, after finding out that the wolf was manned by ex-merchant marine officers and men, my fears for the safety of my wife and little girl subsided greatly my wife herself cheered up a great deal after hearing this, thinking that people from our own walk of life could not be as barbarous as we had been led to believe early in the morning of the tenth we arrived at the position where we were to wait for the wolf here we hove to, and the prize crew, assisted by my sailors, who were forced to do all the work pertaining to the handling of the ship, took off the hatches and took on deck three hundred paper of benzine, ready to be transported to the wolf when she showed up during all this time there were always five or six guards or sentries posted at various positions around the ship, and also the balance of the prize crew always wore their side arms, whether they were working or not the navigating officer of zelasko's prize crew and the bo'swain were both american navigators, one having been, prior to the war, master of a sailing vessel plying on the atlantic coast, and the other a chief mate, also in sail, on the atlantic at the outbreak of the war both resigned their positions and went home to lend kaiser bill a hand these fellows received eighteen marks per month and have a rating of only "over matrosa, " or just one step higher than that of common sailor several months later, after we had got better acquainted, i asked this ex-american skipper if he did not think it rather a scurvy trick to sail as master on american ships during peace times and as soon as war was declared to leave america and help sink the very class of ships that he had hitherto made his living on he replied by saying that at the time he resigned and went home to enlist america was not in the war, but even had she been, he would have gone just the same from conversations i had with other ex-american seamen, i am led to believe that at the outbreak of hostilities the german consuls at the port where their vessels hailed from ordered these men to resign and go home to the fatherland i also believe that their fare and expenses were paid there are thesis, thesis paper similar to this, and i believe it would be a good thing for the american shipowners to remember when employing officers and captains to man their vessels after the war is over the german prize crew made a great fuss over juanita, she being quite a novelty to them, and i am sure that she had the time of her life nobody on board the wolf had seen a woman or a child for nearly nine months my wife and little girl were the first woman and child they had taken prisoner on july 11th, early in the morning, the wolf picked us up again it seems that the steamer we saw got away from them the wolf put four large life-boats on the water and took off essay three hundred paper of benzine and all the provisions and ship's stores we had on board the beluga when the vessel was taken charge of by the german prize officer, he told me that i would be allowed to take only a few absolute necessities aboard the wolf when i was transferred. But later, on the 11th, when the wolf picked us up, commander nerger sent over word that i was to be allowed to take everything i wanted unfortunately the permission came almost too late, because by this time the german crew had ransacked my quarters very thoroughly and thesis articles that i would have taken with me for the comfort of my family were gone weeks later essay of these were recovered for instance, i had a pair of rubber-soled, leather-topped yachting shoes essay weeks after joining the wolf i noticed a man with these shoes on his feet i called the attention of one of the officers to it and told him that they were formerly my property the following morning those shoes were just outside my stateroom door, nicely polished among the things i took on the wolf was the wife's sewing machine, which proved of great value later on, as she had to make under and over garments for both herself and nita my nautical instruments, books and charts were taken from me, but i was told that they would be returned to me on my arrival in gerthesis at 1:20 we got into the boats and said a last farewell to the poor little beluga, and she did look little in comparison with this big black brute of a raider as we were being rowed over, the wolf's rails were lined with grinning faces, and not one of them that i could see had the least trace of sympathy not that i wanted sympathy for myself, but it seemed strange to me, at the time, that out of over three hundred german sailors and officers there was not one whose face showed any sympathy for the position a woman and little child were in we climbed on board by means of a jacob's ladder, myself first with nita on my back, and my wife next thesis offered to lend her a hand, but she managed to make it without any help there was a certain satisfaction in this, as afterwards i found out that the germans anticipated a lot of trouble in getting her aboard, as there was quite a bit of sea running on arriving on deck we were met by the chief officer, captain schmell, whose first words were, "tell your wife and little girl that they have nothing to fear, that we are not the huns you probably think we are " he took us aft under the poop and showed us an ex-storeroom which essay men were cleaning out for our use this room was in the centre of the prisoners' quarters and had absolutely no ventilation, and there were negroes, indians and various other nationalities passing up and down to the hell hole, before the door, in various stages of décolleté, to say the least the chief told me that we three could have this room together, or my wife and child could have a more comfortable room on the berth deck amidships, but that i would have to remain down below and that i would be allowed to visit my family two hours daily my wife would not hear of this latter arrangement, saying that we would live in a pig-sty together rather than be separated just then commander nerger came along and spoke to us, saying that he was very sorry to find that the beluga had a woman and child on board, and had he known that such was the case he would have passed right on.
