LIQUORS AS FORM OF POISON
Produce Abnormal Conditions of Cir
culatory System and Destroy Func
tions by Subtle Paralysis.
If reports are to be trusted Profes
sor Whitney, of Wesleyan university,
proves that liquors are poisonous after
all the alcohol has been extracted
from them. The "old nick" seems to
remain in liquors when nothing but
the odor Is left. The Scotchmanl's
verdict is that "whisky is good in its
place. If you want to preserve a dead
man put him in whisky. 'If you want
to kill a~ live man, put whisky In him."
Professor Whitney, like Professor At
water, contends that alcohol is "food,"
that it raises the temperature of the
body. He might have added it raises
Cain at the same time. We prefer to
believe that alcohol is a miserable de
ceiver, and whosoever is deceived
thereby is not wise. Professor Jor
dan says liquos make you feel wai-m
when you are not warm, seem to
yourself wise when you really are
quite simple. The experiments in
Russia, where liquors are used as a
supposed substitute lor food, have
proved that liquor has the direct ef
fet of releasing the blood from the
heart and arteries and flushing the
surface of the body, producing the
temporary effect of bodily warmi'th
but in reality weakens by a form of
paralysis the whole circulatory sys
tem. We think the government tests
not only. of the United States but of
the leading nations of Europe can be
relied upon. These experts agree that
iquors are a form of poison, pro
ducing abnormal conditions in the cir
culatory system and in a comparative
ly short time destroying the functIons
of the smaller. finer vesicles of the
circulatory systern by a form of subtle
paralysis. The man who tah~ee even
one drink can never be~ the perfect
physical- man. The physical effects
are matters of observation. Thea men
tal prospective is changed. The finer
restraints, the self-inspection, the self
judgment, the bashfulness, a real qual
ity of growing manhood and growing
womanhood, are broken down. The
flush of liquor sweeps away these fine
spiritual barriers, and the young man1
finds himself without moral harness
and under the hallucination of this
paralysIs of his higher, truer, better
impulses, he "enjoys" making a wild
fool or himself. It is not due to the
stimulus of liquor but to the release
from the self-controlling apparatus of
his system. Liquor does not really
stimulate, bujt really paralyzes re
strant. It is primarily &form of
physical death, incipient (eth to the
circulatory system in and around thej
nerves. This, we believe, is the con
sensus of scientific scholarship as
reached by government experts in
this country and in Europe. This view
has the authority of experiment and
observation. The effect is not tem
porary and recoverable. The effect is
absolute death to a percentage of the
crclatory system. One drick of

An esteemed contemporary starts
