Philadelphia, April 8. One million persons in this country are con
firmed inebriates. Of t&ris number one-third die j'early as a result of drink,
yet this number is annually made up by recruits of the army of drunkards.

Xew York Medical Society for the study of alcohol and other narcotics.
T5iis problem, he asserted, exceeds in sociological importance anything
known to modern civilization. He urged institutions for their treatment,
Jectures, educational efforts and every legal method of restraint that can
possibly check the influx of new drunkards.
