LYMPHATISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 8 August 1913

LYMPHATISM. By this term physicians designate a peculiar and Imperfectly understood morbid condition In children, through which death may occur very unexpect edly during convalescence from diph theria or other infectious disease, or during the administration of an anaes thetic. It is not, however, strictly correct to call it an affection of child hood, for it has been found, although infrequently, in adults. The only rea son that It is not seen oftener in adults is that children who suffer from it seldom live to grow up. The condition is one in which the lymphoid structures—the tonsils, the spleen, the thymus gland, and the lymphatic glands—are over-developed or of enlarged size. The thymus gland is normally present only in young children, and becomes progress ively smaller as the child grows old er, until, at the period of adolescence, it has virtually 'Msappeared. Sometimes lyi. ihatism can be recog nised during lift, but frequently the first intimation of its presence is the sudd...

CHAPTER XII. On the Track. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 8 August 1913

CHAPTER XII. On the Track. Generally speaking, it seemed as though Mallien'a iifophecy ol Carrlng ton picking Rupert's pockets was likeiy to come Hue. Owing.to cir cumstances, .tne barrister had found a perfectly legitimate way of getting money from Ma friend, and intended to take every advantage of the oppor tunity. He explained to Hendle that It would be necessary for him to re main at The Big House until all these crooked affairs : were straightened out, and that, his time being valuable, •he would require a handsome, fee for hi3 services. The Squire professed himself quite willing that things should be so arranged, but he was scarcely so dense as Cirrington be lieved him to be. He saw that the visitor was anxious to make money, and concluded that perhaps it was best to settle matters on this coldly legal basis. The cut-and-dried situa tion fas thus perfectly understood by both men; and they got on very amic ably together. On the surface every thing was as it": should' is.j. Bu: ...
