Fischer,1 indeed, postulated a "free" and "combined" water in the tissues, but the "free" water, according to his conception, seemed to be merely the superfluous fluid derived from metabolic processes or from ingestion which was promptly excreted.

During the course of studies of the so-called dehydration fevers in dogs it was noted that the diuresis produced by injections of equivalent amounts of glucose varied within wide limits and in many instances failed entirely.
