According to others, 'intestines,' or 'the gutter of a house to carry off the rain.' The higher degrees have been called Centrogangliiâ€™tis, Myelogangliiâ€™tis, and Hologanglii'tis. A disease characterized by anxiety, gripings, spasms in the legs and arms, and by vomiting and purging (generally bilious:) vomiting and purging are, indeed, the essential symptoms. The disease is most common in hot climates,-and in temperat climates, during summer. Mort de Chien, is frightful in the rapidity of its progress, the patient sometimes dying in a few hours from the first onset. In temperate climates, common cholera is not usually a disease of much consequence, It requires that the stomach and bowels should be cleared, and afterwards the irritation be allayed by full doses of opium. In malignant cholera, large doses of calomel, with opiates, form the great reliance of many practitioners. In the worst forms, however, it runs its course, unmodified by treatment.
