of one of these attacks of colic it was
tried to frighten him out of gross
habits by declaring that it would be
necessary to- open his stomach, and j
the doctor proceeded to arrange his
instruments accordingly. Tarare,
however, found an opportunity to
run away, and releived himself by
taking copius draughts of warm water
Soon after he found that his appetite
had really increased to an excessive
