While it is well known that water plays an extremely important rôle in the economy of the body, and that it is the most abundant constituent, making up 90 pounds (40.8 Kg.) of a man weighing 143 pounds (64.9 Kg.), there have been few investigations concerning the exact distribution of this water in the animal as a whole, although the water content of many individual organs has been determined.
