)NE PHYSICIAN HAS REMEDY
Advocates Camoaign Against Use of
Alcohol Similar to One Used
Thirty years ago physicians were
rather promoters of the use of alcohol
both as a stimulait and as a remedial
agent Now everywhere on both sides
Df the Atlantic medical men are fore
most opposers of the use of spirituous
liquors as a beverage. or even as an
agent in the treatment of disease.
They have been living rather securely
in the tradition that alcohol had al
ways been with them and that most
peoples who had reached the crest of
development had been free users of
wine and beers, and that If alcohol
carried with it any peril to the race.
mankind would have degenerated long
Close historical study shows that
drinking was not so widespread in an
cient days as now. The liquors con
tained less alcohol, and having no Ice
machines they could not brew beer all
the year around. The strong drinks,
whiskies, brandies, oocktalls, bitters
and absinthe had not been lnvented.
Without railroads and without bottles
there was less distribution.
With the wider diffusion of the idea
that alcohol was a food, drinking be
came more general and alcoholism
more ppticeable. With the tremendous
awakening of science in the latter part
of the ni.eteenth century, and with
the extraordinary progress of the sci
ence of medicine, it was natural that
alcohol should have its share of inves
The facts which have been borne in
upon medical men by such studies are
overwhelming, and physicians are just
beginning to understand how much re
sponsibillty rests upon them for the
abatement of this evil.
All physicians are .familiar with the
large catalogue of physical disorders
directly due to alcohol, such as cir
rhosis of the liver, dropsy, multiple
neuritis, heart disease, Bright's dis
ease, inflammation of the stomach,
arteriosclerosis, delirium tremens.
wet brain, and the like. The number
of these cases is constantly increas
ing. Betwen 20 and 25 per cent of
all the insane owe their insanity to
In answer to the question what had
best be done for the prevention of
alcoholism, Dr. Peterson of Columbia
University thought that a campaign of
education such as was being carried
on in the fight against tuberculosis
was the only efficient method of ward
ing off the evils of drink. He advised
having printed in brief form all the
facts on this Question which the med
ical profession now has at hand. In
Paris they have statements regarding
the dangers of heavy drinking, printed
on posters and put up in every ward
and waiting room of every public hos
pital and printed on every prescription
blank of the Paris hospitals and dis
Dr. Peterson asked why our publIc
spirited citizens should not join in
such a crusade. Children should be
taught these facts in the schools. Ev
ery hospital and dispensary in. the
country should begin a similar method
of disseminating them. Our asylums
for the insane and epileptio ought to
print the statistics of alcohol as a
cause of Insanity and epilepsy on ev
ery letter sent out. There are many
shopkeepers, owners of department
stores, druggists and others who
would be willing to have Instructions
printed on their wrapping paper. In
deed, such facts should be kept as a
standing advertisement in many of
our newspapers with wide circulation.
He had himself tried the experiment
of printing them in briefer form on
his own prescription blanks and wish
ed that the 132,000 other physicians in
the United States might be induced to
aid the movement to this extent, for
they knew better than anyone else
the fearful ravages of alcohoL.
WHAT PHYSICIAN MOST FEARS
Alcohol Is Chief injury to Nervous
System and Intellectual Power.
In Great Britain a number of benefit
societies keep abstainers and moder
ate drinkers In separate sections, and
even the moderate drinkers must he
temperate or they are not admitted to
membership. These societies are
obliged to render reports to the gov
ernent, and such reports show an
average of 19 days of sickness per
year for the non-abstainers, or moder
ate drinkers, against 14 days or less
for the abstainers.
Dr. William L, Reid of Scotland,
who cites the statistics of these ben
efit societies, quotes this significant
passage from Dr. Buchner, professor
of medicine in Munich university:
"Alcohol kills the largest number of
victims by ambush, as It were, in that
it undermines the powers of resist
ance to sickness, so that the appar

is the light by which the world looks

THOUGHTS OF LOVE
The modest man Is the last to tri

Every man is unusual to the gird
who is fond of him.-Horace W. C.
Love is like the measles; It has
more power when It attacks one late
in life.-Constance Howell.
Love is a thing to a large extent In
Its beginnings voluntary and control
able, and at last quite involuntary.
H. G. Wells.
Love seeks mutuality, and grows by
the sense and hope of response, or we
should love beautiful In animate
things more than we do.--H. G. We~s.
Men like to be comfortable, and the
man has yet to be bora who can be
comfortable on a pedestal. The ordi
