CASE 16.—Corporal N. K. Stille, Co. A, 168th N. Y. Vols.; age 19; was admitted July 28, 1863, with typho-malarial fever. He had been sick since the 22d with headache, pain in the back and bowels, and diarrhœa. His pulse was frequent and full and tongue coated and dry, but with red edges. He had remissions with profuse perspirations at the end of the month, having been taking quinine meanwhile in doses often to thirty grains daily; and during the first week of August he had some febrile movement every afternoon; but his tongue became moist and clean and his bowels constipated. On August 22d he was sent to New York for muster out.—George A. Mursick, Act. Ass't Surg., U. S. A., Stanton Hospital, Washington, D.C.
