The plenipotentiaries to the East
ern war congress concluded their
labors on the 13th. After some un
important business, Prince Bismarck
made a brief address, in the course
of which he cast a retrospective view
over the work performed by the con
gress, alluding to its importance as
regarded the influence of its delibe
rations and decisions on the future
of Europe. In closing his address
the Prince requested the members
to proceed at once to sign the (docu
ment they had agreed upon, stating
that there were seven copies, one for
each of the governments represented
at and taking part in the conference.
The treaty, numbering sixty-four
distinct clausesis exclusively word
in French, and is printed on
parchment magnificently gotten up
with elaborate designs. It com
mences with the words: "Au
de Dieu tout puissant." In the
name of Almighty God. It then
rehearses the names and several titles
of the contracting sovereigns, and
alludes to the continued Eastern dis
turbances also mentions the last
war and refers to the preliminary
treaty of San Stefano. The closing
paragraph expressly prescribes that
all of the enactments of the treaties
of Paris (1856,) and of London
(1851,) which the present treaty does
not modify, remain in force. After
congratulations being exchanged on
all sides, the members of the congress
left the Radziwell Palace for their
respective residences in Berlin, pre
paratory to their return home.
How to Manage It.
To the Editor of the Pioneer Press:
In answer to your request as to
the best method of treating sun
stroke, I submit that there are
recognized forms of sunstroke^
thermal lever, or heat apoplexy. One
in which the muscels are affected,
notably the heart, which is itself a
rnuscel, known as the cardiac or
heart form the other, in which the
brain and spinal cord suffer, known*
as heat apoplexy. In the heart form
there is a sudden coagulation of the
"myosin" of the heart, which stops
its action very suddenly, thus in
ducing speedy death. In tire brain
form there is an overpowering of
the brain matter by intense heat,
also inducing speedy death by
poyxia or smothering, from the pre
sence of black or carbonized blood
in the brain, as in drowning or
strangulation. In eather case the
heat of the body will be from one
hundred and eight to one hundred
and twelve degrees Fahrenheit's
thermometer. The skin is hot and
very dry, there being an arrest of
the perspiration. The skin may be
pale and seem cool to the hand, but
the termometor will at once rectify
the error. The remedy consists in
as immediate a reduction of tempera
ture aspossible, to avoid rapid deteri
oration ofthe blood beyond the point
of recovery. Let the patient be at
once stripped, placed in a cool place
and douched with coldwater continu
ously till the temperature is reduced.
This should be done while a messen
ger runs for a physician so that no
time be lost, for minutes are very
precious to a victim of heat stroke.
Quinine, the best reducer of heat
known to the profession, should be
administered in twenty grain doses,
or if the patient cannot swallow, it
should be given by hypodermic in
jection, three or four grains being
equal to the larger dose given by the
mouth, ancl the doses should be re
peated at intervals of half an hour
till the patient can speak, and con
tinue at longer intervals for twenty
four hours, or until a temperature of
99 is obtained or the patient has re
covered. It is unsafe to stop the re
medies too sopn. This is the treat
ment in British India, and I have had
a somewhat ample experience of it in
my osvn professional life.
I give this for general use, as un
professional people can use at least
the cold douche and possibly save a
life which the best human skill might
fail to do if not called to the victim
very soon. Use the means at once,
but do not therefore think the skill
of a physician of no use, for there
are sometimes very serious complica
tions that come on later, which only
the most skillful can detect in time
to avert them.
