had been carried up to tbo extreme
danger point. Tho subject complained
of sevcro pain In tho abdomen, duo to
a distended stomach, which, however,
rapidly passed awry.
He also complained of flying pains

less due to the Same being pressed out

tomach. Ho also stated that during
the Inttcr part of tho experiment he
experienced a "floating away senna

due to a redox of tho pneumo gastric

cause for Its existence.
