CASE 11.—Private Alfred Chase, Co. F, 35th N. J. Vols.; age 19; was admitted May 16, 1865, with typho-malarial fever. He had been ailing for some days prior to admission, but had not been confined to bed. In a few days, however, cerebral symptoms set in, accompanied with a profuse diarrhœa, and the patient sank rapidly, dying on the 23d. He was treated at first with acetate of ammonia and afterwards with moderate doses of quinine, opiates and stimulants.—J. D. Smith, Act. Ass't Surg., U. S. A., Fairfax Seminary, Alexandria, Va.
