We can not but feel that we must look, in the future, to the conditions of metabolic processes in functional nervous disorders and other nutritional disturbances for much aid and guidance in the diagnosis and treatment of these pathologic states, and we would like to make a plea for the more general examination of the urine and feces in the treatment of these diseases. It was with this end in view that the investigations about to be
