First, there are the problems dealing with the mechanism of the formation of the various constituents of the gastric juice and with the variations of these constituents under "normal" or "average" conditions. Here we do not seek that utility which is implicit in clinical observations; we deal with a phase of animal (human) physiology. But there is another aspect which is of importance to the pathologist and to the physician, namely, the correlations which may exist between aberrations of secretion and disorders of structure or
