Abstract

I am fully aware that the stomach and rectal tube is not so generally used in the south as in the north and northeast. Having followed their use so closely during my service on the staff of the New York Infant Asylum and since my location in Atlanta, and having such pronounced beneficial results following their use, I am constrained to present a short paper on the subject before this body. We may well deem our age the most practical in the world's history and we find theory quickly receding to give place to the tangible and practical. The approaching warm season causes one who handles the little ones to stop and reflect for a time upon the too often fatal ileo-colitis and gastro-enteritis. There is nothing to be found infallible in medicine nor in means; yet we must accept all available means and apply them judiciously yet assiduously. Often
