From th LOttdo Spectator
Tho Flrat Dlow Aguluttt Choleru.
There U every reason to expect that wo
elm 11 hear more of cholera next summer, ami
that it may come nearer home to us than ft
did la.t yuur. While politicians have been
sitting in conference Tor the arrest of the out
lawry of the disease as a political 0 (TV ruler,
one of tho most eminent of our English phy
sicians has been ripening the fruits of his own
study and experience, and he has within the
last lew weeks given them to the public in a
little book of ".Notes on Cholera," which con
cerns the public very much. For in that
small book uf about a hundred lightly printed
ftages there Is given to the world what the
orcmost members of the medical profession
are now readily accepting as the Grut true
and complete explanation of the disease,
which U moreover such a demonstration as
Immediately excludes the method of treat
ment founded upon a mistaken theory hither
to dominant, tho method which has actually
aggravated danger, killed instead of cured.
The first real blow struck against cholera
is tho discovery of whnt it is. For thephjoi
clans are its true antagonists, and knowledge
of their enemy is the condition of successful
battle. Borne of our readers may remember
thut at the tiino of tho cholera epidemic in
1854, Dr. George Johnson, n ho was then, as
now, plijsicmn to King's Collepo Hoapitul,
and uhuse credit btood high in Hi profession
for important original additions that had been
made Ly him to the known pathology of dis
cus e of tho kidney, strongly supported, by
results of his own hospital experience, the
treatment of cholera with castor oil. lie
spoke ith knowledge and w ith reason, though
ho is now convinced that he often gae ex
cessive quantities of castor oil. Upon what
path of inquiry he was travtlling when be
made that recommendation we are now quite
ulle to understand. Tho true doctrine of
the nature of cholera is explained in his little
book with a masterly clearness and cogency,
is really unassailable by any rebutting facts,
and will henceforth puss bodily into evcrv
good text-book upon the character and treat
ment 01 uuease.
Tho theory hitherto dominant has been
that the worst sjmptoms of the disease are
caused by the drain of fluid from tho blood,
'I he- treatment, theiefore, has been to check
purging by opiates and astringents, and even
to restoro to the blood its lovt constituents
by saline injections into the veins.
Uutif this were so, it is arirued. there would
be some relation between the symptoms of
choleraic collapse and tho loss ol fluid by
vomiting and purging. Yet the authority of
an who nave written upon cnoiera irom mucn
experience, in India and iu Europe, aflirms
that thero Is no such direct relution; that
they often bear even an inverse rutiu to one
another. Cholera caws have been most ma
lignant where there was least push age of fluid
from the intestines. If there were any cor
respondence between the loss of fluid and
decree of collapse, it would still have to be
shown that they stood to each other in the
relation of cause and effect, that they were
not etlects of a common cause. Hut in
fact, so far as thero is anv relation u t uli he
tween tho discharge of fluid from the systtm
and the nerd of collapse, it noints to tno ex-
' Utdicc, not of a threct, but of an inverse
, ratio between them.
Again, if the collapse cholera be caused by
tho watery constituents ol the blood, it should

bare inch yraptomi in excessive drain o
Hum irom tlie blond It known naiully lo nro-
uucc. 1 no coiiapse cansea by a proiusn
drain of tho blood Is marked by a small and
frequent pulse, pale sVIn, dim sight, and
tinging In tlie ears j symptoms so much in
creased by the erect posture, that in extreme
cases the raising of tho head, even for a mo
ment, from the pillow causes fainting. The
collapse of cholera la qnlte different frora
this. There ia the peculiar blucness and
coldness, with other symptoms indicating in
terference with aeration of the blood ; and
the patient, whose akin ia blue and Icy cold,
with a pulse hardly perceptible, la often able
to stand up, and even walk. Several authors
hate expressed their sumrlse at tlie amount
of muscular exertion of which even a cold
and piilt eless patient la capable. Again, the
patient, exhausted by drain from the blood,
whether of water alone or of the blood con
stituents, slowly recovers ttrcmrth.
A cholera patient who recover! la himself
again in a lew days. " i havo seen," aays
.nr uroinger, "amanaianu ai jua uoor on
Wednesday, who on Mondar was in perfect
collapse ;" and a professional observer of the
disease in India speaks of recoveries from
cholera aa "almost aa sudden and complete
as in cases of patients who are resuscitated
after suspension of animation from submer
sion in water."
Again, compare resulta of treatment in
collapse through drain of linuid from the
bloodaiidinciillapse through cholera. In one
case wine or brandy will soon causo improve
ment of the pulse and visibly assist recovery.
Ghe them in the collapso of cholera, aa they
have been given freely aud boldly, and the
patient will even grow colder, his pulse
tlimlnbh hi volume and power, apparently as
a dircit result of the stimulant. Or again, no
sane physician would order veiietCLtitiu an a
remeily lor collapse from a drain upon the
blood, yet it has been a puzzle to physicians
in India that blood-letting in cholera does not
produce syncope, but often a relief that seems
mlraculoua. A man struck by cholera Has
brought to one physician uuable to mote a
lunb, and, except that be could speak and
breathe, to touch and eight a corpse. Free
bleeding enabled hid in half an hour to walk
home with his friends. Sir Itanald Martin
tells how his Terrier major wag reported dj ing
of cholera, and he found, using the lauguage
of the theory now happily disposed of, " that
during tho night he had been drained of all
the fluid portion of his blood." Sir Ranald
opened a vein. The blood oozed at first liku
a dark treacle, presently flowed freely, of lis
own natural red color, and he who hud been
dying a moment before, stood up and said,
oir, vuu imve maue a new man 01 me.
Such experience, which represents the rule.
not the exception, is utterly incompatible
with the old doctrine that loss of blood, or of
constituents of blood, is tho causeof tho fatal
collapse In cholera. In tho cholera epidemic
of 1849, the cases brought into King's Unllego
Hospital were treated, in accordance with
accepted doctrine, by liberal dosea of brandy
unu opium, to stimulate tlie circulation and
to cheik discharge. Under this treatment
the mortality was very great, and It was
changed for an administration of large quan
tities of salt and water. This excited frequent
vuuiiuugr, anu rumer increaseu cue purging,
but it mcreused tho number of recoveries.
Observation of the results of these two oppo
site modes of treatment produced the tmin
of thought which led Dr. licorge Johnson,
ubeu ho himself had charire of the hospital
during tho epidemic of 1851, to act on hU
conclusion that the commonly recched
tueory oi cnoieraic eouapno is erroneous.
He guvo emetics and purgatives with fair
nuccc'18, and In all cases of premonitory s nip-
toms in medical officers, pupils, nurses, or
other patients of the hospital, lie irave castor
oil. a treatment invariable- followed bv re
covery. During tue epidemic oi 1 b-tj, several
nurBcs anu, patients so seized nau been
firotnptiy treated by opiates, passed lino col
apse, and died.
In a number of the llrillth Medical Jour
nal. Mr. atkius tells thut having observed
in 1851 tho mortality tinder treatment by
opium, at n time when tho epidemic was in
creasing both in number of cases and sever
ity, he treated twenty-ono cafes by repeated
doses oi castor oil, and nineteen recovered.
His colleagtio treated seven cases by full
doses of opium, and every one died.
The morbid poison which Is tho exciting
cause of cholera, and which may enter tho
blood either through tho lungs or through
the stoinuch. ciiukcs also thut copious secre
tion from the mucous ineinbruue of the
stoinuch and bowels, by which nature en
deavors to gel rid ot tno perilous intruder.
The secretion is, probably, us much a part of
the natural process of cure us tho eruption
on the skin in case of small-pox. At any
rutc, no putlcnt ever recovered from small
pox without the appeurauce of the eruption,
and no patient ever recovered from cholera
witnout some oiiiltlng und purging.
Tho blue skin, tin.1 more or lens hurried and
difficult breulhing, the coldncs and the great
diminution of the volume und force ol the
pulse in choleraic collapso. point, savs Dr.
Johnson, to tho great central fact "thut tho
passage ol iilood lurougli the mugs from the
right to the left sidu of the heart is, in a
greater or less degree, impedid." This fuel
Is also demonstrated by the appearances ob
sened in the heart, blood-vessels, and lungs
after death. The right side of the heart, ami
the pipes leading thenco to tho luiurs, are
filled, often distended, with blood; the left
side of the heart is almost or entirely empty.
The tissue of the lungs is palo aud dense,
containing less than tho usual amount of
Lloodandair. Thutisthostato of thingswben
death has occurred from collupsc; und, on
the other bund, there is a great engorgement
of the lungs when death bus occurred iu the
febrile stuge, which often follows reaction.
In the state of collapse, venesection, by re
lieving tho over-distension oMhe right cavi
ties ol the heart, restores to them their con
truetilo power. And it is this impediment to
Sussage of blood through the lungs that, re
ucing the tlow through the arteries to a
minimum, causes shrinking of the skill, col
lapse of the features, aud sinking of tlie eye
balls by reason of tho more or less complete
emptiness of tlie branches of the artery that
brings them their supply of blood.
Hut what is the came of Oils blockade of
the circulation? Not mechanical thickening
by loss of fluids, for wo have seen how un
tenable that notion is. And the occurrence
of collapse is often remarkable for audden
lies, bir William Unmet, In his lleport on
Cholera lu the Illack Sea Fleet, give, the
account of u surgeon who says, " tho attacks
wero lu many cases so sudden that many
men fell as if they hud drunk the concen
trated poison of the upaa tree." Illood
thlckemug by drain of fluid cannot happen
thus iu a minute or two. Thickening there
is, but as a necessary consequence, not as a
cause, of the arrest of circulation in the ves
sels that convey the blood from the right
side of the heart into the lnnps.
Dr. Gcorgo Johnson's explanation of tho
stoppage Is, that the poison of the' dUeaae,
having entered into the blood, acta as an Ir
ritant upon the muscular tissue, as Is suown,
by the painful cramps It occasions) that It
thus acts In producing contraction of the)
minute capillary vessels of the lungs" Into'
which the heart injects the blood for aera
tion, and that the result of this contraction!
is entirely to arrest or to Impede the flow or,
tho blood through, the lungs, whence it.
should pass revivified into the arterial sjs-
We need not dwell upon further evidence
that this arrest of blood at its entrance to the
lungs is the true cause of the collapse in
cholera, or on the way In which the chem
istry of life will be affected by impediment to
aeration of the blood. Tlie blood in cholera.
Is black and thick only during the stage or
collapse, as a simple consequence of the de
ficient supply of oxygen. One curious fact,
however, l)r. Johnson mentions, and shows
how exactly it confirms his theory. While other
secretions fail, that or milk, during collapse

for. Tho explanation now riven is. that tha
chief constituents of milk easein, sugar, oil.
ana water may uo outuinea irom tno biooa
without the addition of oxygen.
The fact that Immediate but not perma
nent relief haa been obtained by hot injec
tions Into the veins this theory accounts for
by the mechanical action of the fluid iu dilut
ing the irritant poison, and the effect of its
heat in overcoming for a little time the con
tractile force of the capillaries.
Tlie last link in the chain of the argument
is evidenceof the presence of amorbid poison
in the blood as cause of cholera. Hut this
fact is generally admitted, and tho evidence
by which it is supported we will take for
granted. So we come to what Is the main
question for the public. If this be, as it sure
ly is, the true theory of the action of cholera,
poison, of what practical use is it T It

where he has hitherto walled in the dark. It
tells him bow to assist nature, and how he
may avoid interfering with tbo process by
which nature herself labors towards cure.
