Page 236 - ... 5. Yellow fever can also be experimentally produced by the subcutaneous injection of blood taken from the general circulation during the first and second days of this disease.
Page 199 - The heights by great men reached and kept, Were not attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night, Standing on what too long we bore With shoulders bent and downcast eyes, We may discern — unseen before — A path to higher destinies. Nor deem the irrevocable Past As wholly wasted — wholly vain — If rising on its wrecks, at last, To something nobler we attain.
