PHYSIOLOGY AND ALCOHOL.
Eihtou Hi i.i.i.Tis : 1 bog to for
ward you extracts from the lecturer
nf one of the first, medical scientists
of the day in relation to the physical
action of alcohol.
The positive voice of science in
this matter cannot he questioned,
for those in authority to ignore it is
inexcusable, to act in diieet opposi
tion to it is n crime.
The extracts arc from "Cantor
Lectures on Alcohol," delivered be
fore the British Society of Arts, by
Benjamin W. Richurdion, M. D.,
Y. It. S., Follow of the Royal College
of Physicians. The author has re
ceived the highest honors of the
medical and other learned sociatics
from Europe and America.
D. M. Citowi.i:r.
Al.CUUOI. AND INSANITY.
Exactly in the same way as the
body ceases to exer its proper
power under this agent, so tho mind
begins to go. There is great differ
ence of opinion as to the amount of
mental disease produced by alcohol.
Twenty years ago the subject was
not under discussion. Now it is and
our commissioners are reporting
upon it. There is a difference of
opinion, but it is generally admitted
that there is a very large amount of
insanity produced by drink directly
or indirectly. Dr. Edgar Shepherd
declares that -10 percent of the per
sons who come into Colney Hatch
(tho large lunatic asylum near Lon
don), arc brought there by the direct
or indirect effocts of drink. The
Royal Commissioners say that the
direct effects arc represented by
fourteen percent. It, is difficult to
got at the direct, and separate them
from the indirect effects. Suppose
it were only that, sec what an im
portant point it has brought forth.
I hold in my hand the record of
232 cases published by Dr. Mason,
of Fort Hamilton. Dr. Mason
shows from the persons who have
been under his own care that it is
not the poor and badly educated,
but that all classes are affected by
this agent, and are represented in
his asylum, lie says : "We have at
present amongst our patients clergy
men, lawyers, physicians, and repre
sentatives from all classes of society,
who once held remunerative and re
sponsible positions, but who now,
voluntarily in many instances, seek
the shelter and restorative aid which
our asylum affords."
He goes on to say how this in
ebriety is brought on and produced
by the drink, and he would put as
mental alienation from drink the
statistics far higher than Dr. Shep
herd. You see what a lesson this is
to us, that there should be not only
the physical but the mental death
so distinctly brought out by the use
of this agent.
alcohol axu niuiumiv.
Another point, and it is a sad and
impressive one. AVc know that twen
ty years ago we had no knowledge of
an exact nature in regard to the
effect of heredity on drink. , Dr.
Connolly, the late Sir John Forbes,
and Dr. Carpenter had hinted and
pointed out the relationship of drink
to certain form's of hereditary dis
ease, but we had no conception of
how marked is the iulluenco of alco
hol to produce disease by heredity ;
that is to say not only in the person
directly alfectcd, but on the off
spring of that person. We know
as certainly as possible that the
thoroughly inebriate man or woman
having children, impresses those
Children distinctly with the diseases
which spring from this particular
agent, and here we have Dr. Mason
again coining forward and telling us
" the inebriety of parents should be
regarded as one prcdispqsing cause
of insanity in the children. The
principal cause is the inebriety of
the parents 02 of 110 cases in our
asylum have such a parentage."
Think of that, and if anything could
impress the mind more solemnly than
another it is this; think of the
future generations in reference t6
the present. Think of the import
ant solemn truth that you unwit
tingly, by indulging in this one par
ticular agent, may he the progenitor
of abuse in another generation, which
shall be affected in a similar manner,
and that that may go on age upon
ago, always with the btill continued
increase of the same form of disease,
intensified perchance- and multiplied
perhaps a thousand and a million
fold. I do not know anything more
solemn than what 1 have just said
