Side 464 - ... it better. Mr. Anderson will put a candle under that jar, and you will see how soon the water is produced (fig.
Side 112 - But, at all events, the Iron Mask and Lauzun had committed heinous crimes. The Iron Mask , whether brother or not of Louis XIV. , it is asserted, resembled King Louis XIV. so strongly that it was almost impossible to distinguish the one from the other. It is exceedingly imprudent to dare to resemble a king. Lauzun had been very near marrying, or did actually marry, the Grande Mademoiselle.
Side 441 - But of all, the moft deplorable effect of a great city, is the preventing of population, by fhortening the lives of its inhabitants. Does a capital fwell in proportion to the numbers that are drained from the country ? Far from it. The air of a populous city is infected by multitudes crowded together ; and people there feldom make out the ufual time of life.
Side 496 - ... desire to kill himself and the boy, whom he loved heartily. This cause is only to be sought in congestion of blood to the brain, the same which before had caused his giddiness; and whether we adopt an organ of destructiveness in the brain or not, it is to be assumed that the propensity to kill himself and the son arose from a morbid' excitation of a certain part of the brain. The disposition to congestion originated from a fall he suffered on the head in the year 1828.

Side 181 - The joys of the table are to him of importance ; they tune his mind to serenity, and his soul partakes in the pleasure which they communicate. He does not eat merely for the sake of eating, but each meal is an hour of daily festivity ; a kind of delight, attended with this advantage in regard to others, that it does not make him poorer but richer.
Side 112 - I have frequently filled one glass with the black fluid taken from the heart, and another with the black vomit taken from the stomach. They were both so unlike the blood of health, and resembled each other so completely, that it was almost impossible to distinguish the one from the other...
Side 495 - Frederick Jensen, a workman, thirty-seven years old, had for some time suffered from fits of giddiness, which always obliged him to seize hold of the nearest objects.

The state of his health was nevertheless perfect in mind as well as in body, when he, one day (Sun1 Georgct, Discussion medico-ldgale, etc.
Side 181 - Too great thirst is always a sign of rapid self-consumption. In general, he is serene, loquacious, active, susceptible of joy, love, and hope; but insensible to the impressions of hatred, anger, and avarice. His passions never become too violent or destructive. If he ever gives way to anger, he experiences rather a useful glow of warmth, an artificial and gentle fever, without an overflowing of the bile.
Side 466 - That in some the increase in frequency is greater between the horizontal and sitting posture, than between the latter and the erect, while in others, the contrary takes place ; so that generally the frequency in the sitting posture may be taken as a mean.
