To the Editor:  —As a result of collaboration with ten of my students during the last two months, we have been able to demonstrate the following constituents as constant in the sweat of normal individuals: viz., amino-acids, uric acid and sugar. Furthermore, we have discovered that sweating produced by heat has a tendency: (1) to reduce the blood sugar; (2) to increase the red count; (3) to increase the specific gravity of the blood, and (4) to decrease the alkali reserve.
