So. Royalton, Vt., Oct. 17, 1899.
To the Editor:
—I was much interested in Dr. Landon B. Edwards' article in the Journal, October 14, on the above subject. One similar case occurred in my practice several years ago, in a carpenter, a married man, of excellent habits. I was treating several cases of mumps in his family at the time. He was at work on a building across the street from my office and came in saying that his testicles were paining him, and on examination I found they were both swollen and tender. The next day there was an increase of swelling, pain, tenderness, and a rise in temperature. This continued for two or three days more, when a very decided parotiditis occurred. The testicles did not become atrophied and I have since attended his wife in a confinement. For several years I have closely watched literature and society
