Laboratory of the Tier-physiologisches Instituts 
Prof« Oscar Hagemann, Director. 
Several years ago Prof. Eagemann visited America prior to 
the construction of his new Institute and spent considerable 
time at Middletown, studying the construction of the respira^ 
tion calorimeter. As it is his intention to enter the field 
of animal nutrition, with special reference to the calorimetry 
of the subject, his laboratory is primarily designed for the 
study of problems of animal nutrition similar to those we pro¬ 
pose to study in the nutrition of man in the new Nutrition 
In this laboratory investigations with the respiration 
calorimeter and with the calorimetric bomb are being carried 
out, with special reference to problems of animal physiology 
and especially to the physiological side of animal nutrition. 
Prof. Hagemann states that he intends to make his first ex¬ 
periments with men and then, having- mastered the apparatus, 
to make a study of animals. 
The calorimeter is installed in a specially constructed 
calorimeter house which adjoins the large Institute. The 
apparatus is of enormous size, permitting the study of oxen, 
horses, etc., and is sufficiently deep to allow the use of a 
tread-mill horse power which may be inclined so at; to include 
the work of ascending a hill« 
Present status of investigations in Prof. Eagemann^ 
laboratory.—Through the Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Thiel»
