A grunt wrong is committed by the conotanli con Bumption of iced and voiy cold beverages in hot weather; instead of 'really cooling, the reaction creates nn Irritation which almost amounts to Inflammation of the wallo of the atomaoh, and does not allow the natural flow of the eecretiona, wbioh is necessary for perfect digestion.
