They became very · thirsty. They noticed a metallic -taste and spoke only with effort." At 100 beats a "floating on air" feeling came-on with discomfort so unbearable that tests stopped for fear of Ireat stroke. . · ·' "The experimental evidence acquired lii these studies,"-Dr. McCon- ncl 'said, has. many practical npplica-' tions.
