The experiments with the different organisms were all carried on in the same way. The animals used were rabbits. They were given, in some cases on the previous day, in other cases from one to two hours previous to inoculation, 5 grains of a synthetic preparation1 of sodium salicylate subcutaneously or intramuscularly. They were then inoculated intravenously with suitable doses of living suspensions of twenty-four-hour cultures of the streptococci. On each subsequent day from 3 to 5 grains of salicylate were given to the animals, usually subcutaneously, for a period of
