Drunkenness a Disease.
Dr. Wim.aiw PAitKr.n, nn old nnd
nromlncnt nhvslclan. in a recent address
mndo tho following statement concerning
tho effects of alcohol upon tlio human sys
tem: For many years I was connected with
the enra of Inebriates nnd mid particular
attention to tho character of thoso in my
charge, and I havo nrrlved at tho conclu
sion that jlrtinkcnncssls a disease. A man
so niiectcu cannot control ins appetite,
nnd must have drink regularly, nnd will
havo It at nil hazards. A healthy man
can refrain from drinking, hut a diseased
man cannot: and theso men so addicted
readily admit that. Men suffering from
tno uiscao nave ocen curcu nnu nicy win
wllh tears In their eves nromlso to nb-
staln, yet on passing a liquor store they
cannot help themselves, and will go in
and havo their whisky. Now tho question
nriscs: What can do uoncr now sunn
wo go to work? Society has been all tlio
tlmo trying to show what tho use of alco
hol makes us do, and many will reply It
make them feel good, and some will say
It makes them crazy, drives them to des
peration nnd to light. Now lot us drop
that mode, and ask what docs alcohol do
to me, and not what It makes me do.
That Is tho great starting point. Wo
havo to teach tho people what alcohol docs
to them, nnd how It acts on them. It Is
as poisonous as arsenic or belladonna, and
produces Its deadly effect on those who
use It; but then It is used In an adulter
ated state. Whisky Is n poison, but somo
believe nnd havo tho Idea If wo can get
pure spirits that It Is all rljrht, but that Is
n mistake. Alcohol Is poison, nnd tlio
purer It Is the nioro deadly is It In Its ef
fect, nnd If I were uoing to partako of It
I would prefer that which is adulterated.
With regard to ales nnd beer, It Is believed
that they aro harmless, but with the
presence of alcohol there Is always danger.
Thoso who partako of It becomo drowsy,
nnd thoso who drink wines becomo stupid.
In lager beer there Is II or 4 per cent ot al
cohol, in ale 7 or 8 percent; wlnocon
tnlim Q:i. irln fit nnr cent, nnd brandy 53
per cent of alcohol. Even In cider there
is 2 or 3 per cent of the poison present

So far as wages aro fixed at all by mere
personal will, they aro determined by
thoso who recclvo wages rather than by
thosn who nay them. But. In truth, wasres
nro not determined by either one class or
tno other, uutoy certain conuiiions which
tho economists call laws, but which laws
aro susccptlblo of modification and adjust
ment when understood, Tho Inovlutblo
tendency of nil wages Is to gravitate to
tho lowest point that will support life.
This Is Just as trtto of men's wages ns of
women's. Tho pressure which exists
everywhere to purchaso at tho lowest
nrlee. to reduce cost, to obtain for n
minimum of expenditure tho largest re
sult ceaselessly presses down wages.
Every consumer lu tho land, every neces
sity which exists for making llttlo go far,
every Instinct of economy, every foico In

business Is conducted, upon tho strictest
economical principles, atminltnum of cost
consistent with tho result designed. And
this uniform, steady, persistent, invaria
ble, unalterable pressure Is what deter
mines wages. 11 ono ciass 01 wurKincu

Ln.ii..... tn wnrt fnr leas nnil this rend .
ncss, arising from many causes, Is greatly
determined by tho fact or how tho wages
nro to bo spent what the necessities of
tlio laborer nre. If women as a class can
llvo on lower wages than men do, then,
In nil thoso arenas of employment where
competition Is most netlvo they will bo
sure to accept less. What people havo to
do with their earnings U a very control
ling factor In the rates of wages ; nnd, al
though lt Is quite trtto that Romo women
do havo families to support, yet tho fact
thatns a class femalo operators do not
havo tho samo responsibilities that men
havo brings down prices. What tho ma
jority consents to receive enforces com
pliance oh the minority. It h entirely
certain that wages arc thus determined by
definite law. Tho pressure of society for
cheapness of production Is so great
that wages gravitate to tho lowest
point tho laborer 4pn ncccpt nnd
live. Women, as a class, can
accept less than men, and hence their wa
ges aro lower. But men have adopted
methods to resist this pressure, and wo
men havo not. Men havo organized Into
trades unions, they have combined In as
sociations, they have created a resistance
t-j a pressure which otherwise would
grind them to tho earth. Co-operntlon
and union havo removed that ruinous
comtictltlon which before was destroying
them ; by combination they thus counter
act law uy method, ono nirco uy nuuuivi

that all thus gained on ono hand is lost on
the other. . ,,
Wo have thus Indicated wherein lies the

An Imperial Battle.

the Park Commissioners nro pleased to

seemed divided into two factions. Hos

after Individual combats had taken place,
without any other result than a great scat

told of their speed and endurance Tho
traveler Llthgow tells us that ono will
carry n letter from Babylon to Aleppo In
forty-eight hours, tho place being thirty
days' journey apart by tho slow modes of
travel used in tho East. But tho stories of
early travelers nre to bo taken with many
grains ofallowanco. Although for a short
distance, or In exceptional cases, tho car-rlcr-plgeon
may attain a much greater
speed, thirty miles an hour Is probably Its
nvcrage. It could not sustain n long flight
with greater velocity.
Even this speed cannot bo maintained
