Excerpt from Year-Book of Medicine, Surgery, and Their Allied Sciences, for 1864 Osmosis qlbmnen. - A. Schmidt observes that albumen in its ordinary state is almost completely non-di 'usible, and that previous to its entrance into the cells of the living organism it undergoes a change which renders it di 'usible - akin to that which it sufi'ers during digestion, in being con verted into the peptones. It becomes, in fact, globulin - the fibrino plastic substance of Schmidt - and as such undergoes exosmose freely in presence of the intercellular uids which are rich in the fibrino-genio sub stance. This was proved by the endosmometer, through which the serum of the blood rapidly produced coagulation in (e. G.) pericardial uid. Schmidt, however, would not affirm that the exosmose of globulin is more free into fibrino - genic uids than into water, although in the former case its coagu lating power is much greater, because in the latter case the fibrino-plastic substance rapidly loses its ower by exposure to the air. The fibrino-genie substance, on the other han does not under 0 osmosis; an alkaline solution of it placed in an endosmometer in water oes not diffuse into the latter, nor when thus placed in contact with globulin does any coagulation take place in the latter, as would happen if the fibrino-genic substance diffused.
