Alcohol exerts its poisonous of
fectsa on the organs of the human ra
body in two ways, viz: Immediately
and remotely. Its immediate elect
Is aes drunkeoness, and its remote
in the slow and inevitable intm o I
mation which it causes in the brain, Y
stomach, liver and kidneys. The Y
four fammiliar poisons an common
use are arsenic, opium, strychbnine
and alcohol. Arsenic kills by erod you
ing the mucus membrane of the the
stomach, opium by depressing the
nervous system with its narcotic Una
power, strychnine by the peculiar and
irritation which it exerts over the a
spinal mnrrow, and alcohol by the t
influence which it exercises in pro old
ducing irritation of the brain. This
characteristic of its action distio two
guishes it from all other poisons. w
It is not digested by the stomach, mer
but passes through that organ into b
the blood and on to the head, and old
burns the brain just as it burns the
mouth, throat and stomach when ust
swallowed. So great is its afinity
for the bead that it is tound in a
pure state, after death, within the
cavities of the brain, and so rapid a
is its influence on the brain that in
a few minutes after being swallowed .a
its po'lonoua eleet is felt in the or
bead, and manifeated on the body.
So unerring is thin result that its sil
elect is expressed in common lan or
y guageby the ordinary metaphor of
S"flying. It is usnal for those ua- tr
sccustomed to the use of alcohol to
ssy, when invited to drink, "I can.
not drink liquor; It ties directly to
my head." Therefore, tbheepressoo
• ,flies t-tbe bed," ai metaphor
used to express the rapidity with
which aloohol is absorbed by the
in blood sod irritates the brain. I a
virtue of the seet of even a mod
erate drink of alcoholic liquor on
the head, one must readily conclude m
that a frequent repetition of saob h,
Seffects must inevitably wore certain Ili
and serious injury to the brain. t
That tbls is the case is beyond all b
sir question; and to know inamoment l
the deleterious influence of exesee
o e drinking, one bha only to reecall
rat the unnatural appearanee which o

on a debeauch only for a few days;
