It is used more by the ignorant practitioner, who is deficient in the ability to diagnosticate obscure diseases, than by one of intelligence, who can discern more clearly the true pathological state. Its use is more frequent in some countries as England, under the teaching of great names, than in others, as France, where the highest authorities, as Rilliet and Barthez, discountenance it.
Page 125 - From this the general law is deduced that the rate of surface evaporation is proportional to the elastic force of the vapor. Thus, suppose two tanks of similar surface dimensions and open to the atmosphere, one containing water maintained constantly at 212 Fahr., and the other containing water at 144 Fahr. Then, for each pound of water evaporated in the last tank, five pounds will be evaporated in the first tank. It should be understood that the law of Dalton holds good only for...
