Tho question now presented and
the issue inndo up is Pike or Anti-

Statistics of Inebriety.
Dr. ilcKinlcy, of St.. Louis, says
tho Medical Reporter of that city,
has compiled, after a very car of u I
research, somo very interesting and
startling statistics of inobriation in

ono hundred and sovonty -eight who
drink, three are confirmed inebri
ates; twenty-five ar periodical
drinkers; fifty aro ephemeral drink
ers. One confirmed inobriat to
every fifty-nine and one half men.
Of seven hundred women, six ban
drod iiover taste liquors of any kin-l,
thirty taste wine occasionally; sev
enteen taste ardent spirits; thirty-ty-six
drimc ale or beer constantly,
fourteen drink ardont spirit period

women. Fewer women drtsk than
men, bnt a larger proportion ( of
them become habitaal drinker..
Debaaeh drinkers rarely becoma
habitual, but periodical driakers;
tbi latter rarely become habitual in
ebtiatus, as the violence of '.heir
drinking is too great, and Jeada to
disgusting satiety, and henr
1 trvls of sobriety.
