And on the tent there is a pennant, and on the pennant is written in bi-i-ig letters: 'The Band of Polteva[7] Gipsies.' The pennant undulates like a serpent; the letters are gilded; any one can easily read them. The entertainment is whatever any one likes!... They refuse ...

... similar to that of chemical bodies and which can hardly be called bacterial. These poisons represent generally stages in the process of nutrition where for some reason the normal process is arrested and chemical bi-products are set free. Also, tissue which has been thrown off, in or by any organ, begins to decompose, thereby sending throughout the system the poisons of decomposition. Inflammation too generally results in the breaking down of the cells and the distribution of the resulting poisons. Of late ...

Before these learned pundits, one member laid the following ingenious problem: "What would be the result of putting a pound of potassium in a pot of porter?" "I should think there would be a number of interesting bi-products," said a smatterer at my elbow; but for me the tale itself has a bi-product, and stands as a type of much that is most human. For this inquirer who conceived himself to burn with a zeal entirely chemical, was really immersed in a design of a quite different nature; unconsciously ...
