STRASBOURG. FRANCK. 
Professor L. Ambard. 
Professor Ambard asked, "Is the rectal temperature of Orientals any 
different from that of white people!” I told him I was not sure, but I 
told him of our measurements of the skin temperature of Chinese girls and 
said I thought that our measurements showed no difference. Ambard said 
Richet in an experiment on the insensible perspiration of the tortoise 
found that the animal actually gained weight, and that when he weighed a 
dead tortoise, he found it also gained weight. Then he took a piece of 
lead and found that that gained weight. Finally he found he was using a 
w°2âSS balance, and the hygroscopic nature of the arms altered the weight 
so as to show these false weights. Pstren is very ooo„1„r. glum says that 
Friedrich Muller never did an original thing, but he is a good clinician, 
understands chemical problems, has a good group of men about him, and hence 
is very successful.
