Memphis, Tenn., May 24, 1897.
To the Editor:
—Some months ago a patient of mine took a dose of 20 grains of trional at 10 P.M., for insomnia with peculiar results cited below.Shortly after having taking it he went to sleep and did not awaken until he was aroused the next morning for breakfast. Not feeling very well, he had a cup of coffee brought to his bed. After a short while he arose and went to his office, but feeling very bad he returned home about 10:30 A.M. and again lay down and went to sleep. On being aroused for dinner by the servant, his wife being away, he responded that he would be down in a few minutes, but instead he went to his club for dinner.While at the club he must have felt ill as he went into the lounging room and slept until 7:30
