The Role of Fever In^^BWEK
Hon of
From ao address by
D.. urofessor of thenii>S^B98ggP
Jefferson Medical Colle^^^^^^Kidelphia,
we extract tb^^^^Hhig
important ideas concern i^^^^role
played by fever in disease.
As long ago as the time o(
: Hippocrates, he expressed the belief
that fever was a protective process.
Many others, more or less remote from
liovn hi< vi/ill'J C(1
that we lind the proessional mind first
regarding the fever as salutary, then
as an annoying symptom to be regretted,
aud, very recently, as a symptom
to be controlled as a crying evil.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
usefulness of fever has been recognized
iu the pafct, it is my intention to briny
forward additional evidence in support
of this view, and against the idea that
fever is harmful; or, iu other words,
to show, by the introduction of the
newer evidence produced in receut
years by bacteriological and other research,that
fever is not an unmitigated
evil, and that when we reduce fever
' by the use of drugs, we deprive the
body of a therapeutic measuse devised
by nature for the protection of the
individual. It is but a few months
siuce most of us were reduciug all
fever by the use of antipyretic drugs.
There is au immense amount of evidence
to show that fever is harmful, il
the temperatvre really becomes high
(lOSOto 1100F.); but there is almost
no evidence that it is harmful below
this point, it having been proved that
mucn, if not all, the morbid changes
in structure thought to be due to the
fevrr are reall\* produced by germs or
their toxins, eveu if 110 rise of temperature
has occured.
Experiments by Welch and others
have shown that auinials can bear
very high, artitically induced temperatures,
provided no infectious processes
be present to weaken the organism.
Is fever protective agaist infection?
This belief seems to besanctioned by
the following facts:
First?Fever is a condition developing
in healthy animals as soon as they
undertake to resist infectiou; nature
would hardly devise a plan for vital
resistance handicapped by such an
important phenomenon, if it were
useless in itself.
A >%S?vtnK? ntkwiVt l?oira t*_
oeuuuu?r\iiimais nuivu urt*ciwvi?
sufficiently large doses of germs to
cause death, ofteu develop very little
fever, or, iu other words, are so
overwhelmed that the body can uot
develop resisting' measures.
Third?Auimals receiviDg smaller
does speedily develop fever aud recover
; but if the same dose be giveu, and
fever prevented by artificial means,
they die as promptly as if large doses
were used.
Loewy aud Richter, after producing
fever by puncture of the corpus
striatum, found that infection by the
Klebs-LoetHer bacillus, the pneumococcus,
the coccus of erysipelas aud the
micro-orgauism of chicken cholera,
fuileri tn <>nii*p itpjith si? snmi as iisuhL
even though a hundred times the
ordinary fatal dose was iujected ; aud
when three times the fatal do9e ot
pneumoccocci was injected, the animals
with the highest temperature servived.
Waguer found that wben chickens
' were infected with anthrax bacilli
their temperature rose several degrees
and remained tbere for several days.
At theeud of that time, no bacilli
could be found in their tissues. If
the their chickens were keep cool
artificially, they promptly died.
Similar results ensued when the
temperature was reduced by antipyrm,
five out of six of the ihfected chickens
dyinjr.
Pasteur also records that fact that
chickens infected by anthrax survive,
but if cooled they promptly succumb.
Thus fever in some way aids the
body in acquiring immunity by the
formation of anti-toxin. The functional
activity of all the organs is increased
by the rise of temperature, and thus
the various methods adopted by nature
for the protection of the body against
infection are stimulated to the
uttermost.
Many years ago it was the effort to
leu uuc levers uy ui?piiuieaia anu
diuresis, and they ofteu succeeded in
abortiug febrile movement by measures
too often to-day considered useless.
The trouble, if preventable, was set
aside; and if not, its true course and
the object of its existence were
not masked by powerful drugs.
Unfortunately for the profession, it
was discovered that digtails sometimes
reduced fever, (Quinine soon took a
valued place as an antipyretic. Some
tbing stronger was required, and the
nearness of the period of ridiculous
fear of exposure to cold in fevers
excluded cold applications from the
therapy of such cases. Salicylic acid
was therefore introduced aud from
this it was but a step to the common
autipyretics of to-day.
There is, however, abundant evidence
to prove that the older methods
of reducing fever by the production of
sweating aud increased glandular
secretion had a far more rational basis
tbau has the employment of antipyretic
drugs; further, that antipyretic drugs
in reducing fever decrease the vital
resistance of the patient, aud that the
use of the cold bath or cold sponging
as employed to-day does good, not so
much oy the reduction of temperature
as by increasing glandular and other
vital activities.
The natural thought is that if
antipyrexia is harmful when obtained
by druga, it is also harmful when
obtained by cold baths, but clinical
results prove the contrary. I have
long felt that the cold bath did more
than to abstract heat, aud I veuture
to advance the idea that it also
permits the tissues to destroy the
poison of the disease by oxidation or
allied processes.
The cold bath, therefore, has a
physiological action far more important
than the withdrawl of heat;
'; it really puts the system in the best
y condition to resist disease.
My views may therefore be summed
up as follows :
1. Moderate fever has been proved
to be in itself harmless. Hyperpyrexia
is of itself harmless.
2. Moderate fever has a useful
function to perform In the body in
the presence of an infection.
3. Cold baths do good, not by the
mere abstraction of heat alone, but
by increasing metabolism aud the
rapidity of all vital processes.
4. The use of antipyretic drugs is
contraiudicated in all infections
diseases.
The most stubborn cases of neuralgia
are apt to yield to a hot water treat..
ment. Wherever the pain is located,
there a hot water bag should be applied
the suffering part should be wrapped
in a blanket; and the unfortunate patient
should be put to bed and covered
with more blankets, and induced tc
drink at least three cups of water as
hot as the palate can stand. This
treatment may seem severe, but it 1:;
sure to bring relief.
For neuralgia, apply hot, dry flannels,
as hot as can be borne.

es Poston, of Savage, S.
I^BTtirms what has been sam oy u la ly
n^Sumter as "to the virtues of borax for,
| the protection of meat from theattacksj
. of tlies, etc. Having noticed, lie savs, j
;Mr. Barrett's statement of his troubles j
j on that score he submits the following i
approved recipe for the information ofi
.i all concerned :
| "When the meat is ready to hauig
; up, after it been salted, wash off in i
11 hot water and set on the edge to dry. j
' When it is about dry apply a small:'
quantity of pulverized borax by rub-i
1 bing it on with the haudorsprinkling
it from a common pepper box or
1 through aseive, distributing it evenly
over the fleshy surface and the stem of
1 the ham and shoulder. Smoke as long
; as desired, but a very little smoking
' will suffice. I have tried this plan for
two years, and my father has employed

I II UIUVU IVUbVl . * , V, 11M1.J I I -;
worm or fly will touch meat that has
' the borax on it."
A South Carolina correspondent of
The Southern Cultivator varies the
; plan by usiuj* the borax in solution.
| He directs that the meat be kept in
salt six week ;.then taken out and allowed
to drip for live minutes, and
adds: "Makea strong solution of bo1
rax water, dip the meat in for one
minute, haugupand smoke if desired.
Farmers hereabout use this method.
! and are never troubled with skippers."
Whether the solution should be hot or
1 cold, audjust how "strong" it should
be, is not stated. The important point,
however, is that this witness confirms
the testimony of our fair Sumter cor'
rpunnnrienf and of Mr. Postou that
' t>orax affords au effective aud unfailing
protection to the meat from the
attacks of winged or legless marauders.
We need not, therefore, print any
' further recipes on the subject.
St. Paul's Hock.
Almost at the very centre of the Atlantic
Ocean?only a trille north of the
equator and about half-way between
South America and Africa?is a submarine
mountain, so high tbat,iu spite
of the immense depth of the sea, it
thrusts its peak seventy feet above the
waves. This peak, starting from its
position, forms a labyrinth of islets,
the whole not over half a mile in cir.

i So steep isthe moui tain of which this
Jouely resting-place of sea-birds is the
summit, .that one mile from these
rocks a five-hundred fathom line with
which soundings were attempted by

failed to touch bottom.
Were the bed of the sea to be suddenly
elevated to a level with the dryland,
St. Paul's Rocks would be the
cloud-capped speak of a mountain rising
in sheer asceut in tbe midst of a
; nl?in. Thpv nre snnnosed to have
been formed by the same disturbance
of nature which separated the Cape
Varde Islands from Africa.
Treacherous currents make navigation
iu the vicinity of these rocks dangerous.
A Braziliau naval officer, who
passed them on an English steamer,
tells me that the evening before they
expected to sight them he was told by
the captain that five o'clock in the
morning tiny would appear about five
miles west. At that hour the officer
went on deck and looked to the west- i
ward?nothing but au expanse of heaving
sea. He chanced to turn, and '
there, live miles to the eastward were (
?the Hocks. The currents had, iu
less than twelve hours, carried a fullpowered
steamer ten miles out of her
course. *
A teaspoonful of borax, put in the
last water iu wuieu uioiiiesuit; nuaeu,
will whiten them surprisingly. Pound ,
the borax so it will dissolove easily.
This is especially good to reoiove the
yellow that time gives to white gar- ,
clients that have been laid away for
two or three years.
