Dr. Jerome Cochrane, of Alabama, in his paper on this subject published in this Journal for May 30th, 1885, has given the results of the analysis of several specimens of the urine from patients laboring under this fever, in which the characteristically dark red urine, which has generally been supposed to contain an abundance of red-blood corpuscles, contained no blood corpuscles whatever. The color was due to the constituents of the blood-corpuscles, chiefly hæmoglobin, without the presence of any nondisintegrated corpuscles in the several specimens of urine examined.
