INDEX OF AUTHORS

authors, some of whom said, (e.g., Wharton) that it had three 

constituents, which they usually considered to be: (1) The noblest and 

most essential part, from the testicles; (2) a watery element from the 

vesiculae; (3) an oily element from the prostate. Schurig, _Spermatologia_, 

1720, p. 17. 

 

[130] See, e.g., C. Mansell Moulin, "A Contribution to the Morphology of 

the Prostate," _Journal of Anatomy and Physiology_, January, 1895; G. 

Walker, "A Contribution to the Anatomy and Physiology of the Prostate 

Gland, and a Few Observations on Ejaculation," _Johns Hopkins Hospital 

Bulletin_, October, 1900. 

 

[131] For a study of the semen and its constituents, see Florence, "Du 

Sperme," _Archives d'Anthropologie Criminelle_, 1895. 

 

[132] J. Hunter, _Essays and Observations_, vol. i, p. 189. 

 

[133] As regards one part of Australia, Walter Roth, _Ethnological Studies 

Among the Queensland Aborigines_, p. 174. 

 

[134] Sir H.H. Johnston, _British Central Africa_, p. 438. 

 

[135] Cap. VII, pp. 327-357, "De Spermaticis virilis usu Medico," 

 

[136] W.L. Howard, "Sexual Perversion," _Alienist and Neurologist_, 

January, 1896. 

 

[137] _Zentralblatt fuer Gynaekologie_, 1894, No. 49. 

 

[138] E. Toff, "Uber Impraegnierung," _Zentralblatt fuer Gynaekologie_, 

April, 1903. In a similar but somewhat more precise manner Dufougere has 

argued ("La Chlorose, ses rapports avec le marriage, son traitement par le 

liquide orchitique," These de Bordeaux, 1902) that semen when absorbed by 

the vagina stimulates the secretion of the ovaries and thus exerts an 

influence over the blood in anaemia; in this way he seeks to explain why it 

is that coitus is the best treatment for chlorosis. 

 

[139] In this connection I may refer to an interesting and suggestive 

paper by Harry Campbell on "The Craving for Stimulants" (_Lancet_, October 

21, 1899). No reference is made to coitus, but the author discusses 

stimulants as normal and beneficial products of the organism, and deals 

with the nature of the "physiological intoxication" they produce. 

 

[140] Spermin was first discovered in the sperm by Schreiner in 1878; it 

has also been found in the thyroid, ovaries and various other glands. "The 

spermin secreting and elaborating organs," Howard Kelly remarks (_British 

Medical Journal_, January 29, 1898), "may be called the apothecaries' of 

the body, secreting many important medicaments, much more active and more 

accurately representing its true wants than artificially administered 

drugs." 

 

[141] See, e.g., a summary of Buschan's comprehensive discussion of the 

subject of organotherapy (Eulenburg's _Real-Encyclopaedie der Gesammten 

Heilkunde_) in _Journal of Mental Science_, April, 1899, p. 355. 

 

[142] "Observations Upon the Acquirement of Secondary Sexual Characters, 

Indicating the Formation of an Internal Secretion by the Testicles," 

_Proceedings Royal Society_, vol. lxxiii, p. 49. 

 

[143] See, e.g., the experiments of Cecca and Zappi, summarized in 

_British Medical Journal_, July 2, 1904.
