How Drunk Comes.
Effects of Alcohol? The intoxi
CATING PltOCESS, rJlY.sioj.ogi(jall,y
In a Into number of the Edinburgh
Review is an exhaustive and care
fully written paper upon the "Phy
siological infiuences of alcohol." It
is calm and scientific; not emotional,
but crowded with facts and informa
According to this article,
when a spiritous drink is taken
into the body it docs not simply run
into the digestive cavity of (hat body,
but it runs through llic: blood before
it can find any escape, and it clings to
(hat blood for a considerable period,
flowing with iL round and round
through the * circulating stream of its
unceasing progress. It goes every
where in each fib20, membrane and
tissue, and fills and saturates each
vital organ?flesh, grain, heart, liver,
lung, kidney, skin and secreting ap
paratus Wherever there should be
blood, under the natural arrange
ments of life, there is now blood
mingled with the alcoholic spirit.
Articles of food arc "complex
bo lies; built up from simpler elements
by l.li o (./fort of vegetable life."
Alcohol is not such a complex sub
st.'.nct', but it is a "product of the
downward degradation and decay of
.such a complex principle." The foods
which furnish substance Co the living
structure are, for the most part, com
posed with the aid of nitrogen, and
have therefore an a trinity with the
vital far's of the human structure.
"The fibrin of the blood, the niuscidai'
flesh, the enri legos' and tendon^ the
membranes and the r.kin. the soft
nerve pulp and the brain are all so
many examples ofnitrogenized mat
ter," But alcohol is entirely devoid
of; nitrogen in any form. In tli<
exceptional cases where alcohol his
been found useful as a medicine an
unnatural condition of ih body
exists, and physicians should deter
mine when stimulnrts :u a medicine
are nco< ssory.
The part- ofthe body which possess
the most energetic vitality, tiio brain,
the nerves, and the- nervous material
of the spinal cord, .ire principally
composed of matter of I ho most pulpy
consjstchee, so soit that it may almost
bo termed melting. This nerve pulp
is packed i'nlo iniuut' pliny sacks and
tvjbes discernible only by microscopic
aid. Through th so tin'y and almost
invisible films the blood is. "filtered."
The nerve pulp appropriates such
futilities of the blood as nourishes life
and build up the structure, and at the
same time reject and throw back into
the stream their own waste particles.
Large quantities of water enter into
the composition of this pulpy matter,
and the first evil effects of alehol is to
withdraw this water. For alcohol has
an "uncontrollable impulse",to draw
water into itself. Excessive) uscof
aieobol hardens and dries up the nerve
pulp in such a way as to impair if hot
spoil it for its 'proper office. When
excessive drinking does not produce
intoxication it is because the nerve
pulp has haeomc insensible as an
The flushed face upon the approach
of inebriation is among the earliest
signs of the disturbance of these deli
eale "filters" in their work, the face
being among the parts of the body
exceptionally supplied with blood.
The "restraining" or filtering work of
the pulpy substance is impaired, and
hence the unnatural reception of blood
into the pulp cells. ]f this unnatural
process is repeated or becomes habi
tual, the blotched, red swollen and
pimpled face is the result of keeping
the nerve, pulp saturated with alcohol,
and the delicate membranes thicken
ed, dried and dyed red, show through
The first stages of intoxication arc
shown in the want of command over
the lower lip and lower limbs. The
nerve pulp of the spinal cord is
touch ed. The muscles feel the for
por. Trembling and shuddering
follow. Next the nerve pulp of the
I brain comes under the evil influence,
j and .the control of the judgment and
the will disappear. When a man is
termed "dead drunl*," the paralysis
o( the higher nerve centres and of the
brain is carried to ils full end. AH
inlets of the senses arn closed; all con
sciousness and sensation arc destroy
ed, and all power of voluntary move
ment is effaced. The heart?the seed
of life?toils on. If an enormous
quantity of alcohol is swallowed
at once, as in the case of foolish
wagers, the toil of tho heart, soon
ceases, and the man is dead indeed.
But in ordinary instances the torpor
saves J'.'c, as it stops the drinker just
at the p tint when further drinking
woidd kill him outright.
With this general view of the
effects of alcohol, and the manner in
which they are produccd.it is easy to
understand why head che, sleepless
ness, nausea, palpitation of the heart
and the "trembling delirium" ac
company and follow the excessive
use of alcohol. A poison in the stom
ach can be pumped or voided. A
poison in the blood must wait, removal
till the efforts of nature effect it. Bui
when nature itself is abused or impair
ed, its recuperative powers soon he
come destroyed. Tho effects of con
tinued alcoholization upon the liver,
kidneys and stomach it is unnecessary
to describe, as they a e well under
Gov. Chamberlain's Policy The
[Washington Cor.iWihnihgion (Dehj Co'i'n
Ak.no among the southern states
that from their large colored vole,
should be surely ropu'd can, stands
South Carolina. In it the Con Itions
of thp. y;emt))d<.Mis struggle seem to
concentrate. As vet. the republican
party stands predominant, and at the
time a republican goycnW is striving
?as many a democratic governor is
not--to reform, honestly and truly,
whatever of abuses exist in the state.
As the clamor over corruption in the
south lias been made the excuse for
the white league's reign of terror, so
Gov. Chamberlain is laboring to puri
fy his parly, to clean its skirts of all
responsibility for wrongful acts, and
to .-how to the country that good
government can be given the south
under the republican name, j hat he
has att( mptcd and is still attempting
this in good faith none who know
him doubt, though there is a cry, it
is true, that he is "selling out" Ids
party and betraying the slate into
democratic control, polling it, too,
under the heel of that despotism
which has fastened upon Alabama,
Louisiana and Mississippi?all re
publican states, if the. ballot were not
terrorized by the bullet. But this
impeachment of Chamberlain's pur
pose is unfair. His refusal to com
mi.-sion a loses und Whippcr, the
Barnard and Cnrddzo of their locality,
did not discredit but honored him and
the republican name. It, answered
the demand of the lime. It spiked
the guns of those who have been de
ceiving the northern people, and who
will be sadly disappointed when no
longer the. ku klux can hide behind
the frivolous pretense of republican
inisgovernmcnt. The obvious policy
and eliity is to support Chamberlain,
to give him a backing in the republi
can parly, to go'on ill the direction
indicated by the president in a con
versation a few days ago with Senator
Robertson. If the administration
stands by Chamberlain, if flic 'preist
d-nl stttrit7s hi/ him, tha party strength
in South Carolina will be encouraged
to uphold him also, and lie can suc
ceed, 'whether the democrats or op
pose him. lie can put down the ku
klux; he can maintain a rule id'law;
ho can keep the republican banner
flying in at least one slave state.
A Sfrange Story of Baffled Lovo.
The .London papers describe a cur
ious coin memorativc monument that
is to be witnessed i n one of the most
frequented thoroughfares of the Eng.
lish metropolis. An observant specta
tor will notice that the first floor win
dows ol a largo house at the corner
of Howard street present a peculiar
appearance. The shutters arc up, and
they uro covered thickly with dust,
while through the chinks can he seen
the blinds, also thick with dust and
mouldering away with age. These
shutters and blinds have been in
exactly the same position, untouched,
lor about fifty years. During that
time no human loot, it is believed, has
entered that room. And the reason is
this : Fifty years ago a certain nubk
man was engaged to be married, the
day was fixed, the weeding morning
arrived, the breakfast was hud out in
that spacious and handsome room, the
bridegroom was ready to proceed to
the church, when it was discovered
that the bride was missing; a note in
her handwriting was found addressed
to the bridegroom, briefly informing
him that she had eloped that morning
with his "best man," a gay and gallant
captain of dragoons. The jilted bride
groom did not say much, but. lie went
alone to the loom in which the wed
ding breakfast was laid out, with Iiis
own hands put up the shutters and
drew the blinds, locked the door and
took the key. He gave orders that
the door should be nailed up and bar
red with padlocked bar.*, and that no
one should enter the room again.
When the house was let it was stipu
lated that the room in question should
remain untouched, ami a sum of ;C2
00 per annum was paid to the tenant
to compensate him for the deprivation
of the use of the room.

compounded of the purest materials, and
