Perhaps they would tell us that they aell only to the sober, never have drunkards In their places. So much the greater curse for which they will have to answer in the great by and by. How often it is said of some liquor seller: "He never sells to the drunkard, he eells to the sober only." But is he who kindles the Are of hell in the sober man. until a maddening, burning appetite is created within him, then turns hia victim into the street, a ruined specimen of humanity, a fit lounger for the low groggcry because ?be sells to the sober only? II Are not his sins trifold to those of the low dive? asks Dr. D. EL Mann. He aowt* the s?*??d?: of destruction In the ao ?r man ani whet; beyond ?? the man In tne iow dive finishe-. up the Job of making a drunkard of him. The boastful dealer congratulates him? self that he never sold him anything when he was intoxicated. Yel both these establishments are licensed as public necessities. Is it not a stain upon the fair name of our boasted country that such a desolating curse should be tolerated, legalized and pro? tected ? The dealer vho sells to the sober must be constantly ?natherinK in new recruits-?, and hoys ami young lads must be drawn into the snares to keep the hopper tnill while tho mill grinds them out. slowly but surely. Turn off the old bummers and take in new recruits, for he never sells to the drunkard. DRINK AND CRIME. The Very Striking Connection Be? tween the Two as Noted at Cleveland, O. None who has obaerved or thought upon the manor will question that drink has been the chief element in filling the workhouse, not only In Clevclaml, hut everywhere. The connection between drink and crime is far more than a sentimental one. A very large proportion of the un? fortunate were "plain drunks." Many have been sent up repeatedly for drunkenness. Aside from those it may be said that few workhoi.se offenses are committed without tho aid of whiskey or beer. A life of low crime is all but im? possible except for the debasing and deadening influence of drink. The almost unfailing connection be? tween drink and crime is not acci? dental, says the Cleveland Press. It Is not the criminal propensity that leads to drink, but it is the drin?i that creates or develops the criminal propensity. Drink leads to crime because it anes? thetizes the moral sense, distorts the spiritual perspective and dethrones rea? son. FACT AND COMMENT.

An appeal to the (.brinati people to stop 'heir drinking is to be made on the basis of "patriotism." PHYSICIAN AND ALCOHOL. Cases in Which Patients Have Been Wrecked Through the Prescrib? ing of Alcoholic Liquors. The Literary Digest, In a recent Issue asks the important question: Do physi? cians prescribe alcohol unduly? All thoughtful people are, I think, ask? ing themselves the same question. It has recently been charged in the Lon? don Graphic, by a woman, that doctors have brought many of her sex to ruin through drink, by constantly recom? mending to them the medicinal use ol spirits. Commenting on this, the Hos? pital says: "Adults of sane mind are accountable for their own actions, and we protest against the growing habit of saddling other persons with responsi? bility for their misdeeds on the slight? est possible pretext. Women who drink whisky to excess cannot for a moment be permitted to excuse themselves by advancing the utterly absurd and futile plea, "the doctor recommended its use." Is this plea utterly absurd? I myselt believe that many women acquire the deadly habit In that way. says Hattle Tyng Griswold. in Unity. Let mestate but one case, although it is not an isolated one. It came under my own observation, but the details were given me by close friends of the woman. A girl was mar? ried at 17 years of age, innocent. Igno? rant, rather delicate, but healthy, and had a child tho first year, which she was unable to nourish sufficiently in the reg? ular manner. Her doctor prescribed beer for her. and she began taking it. vainly hoping to increase the flow ot milk. She was ill for a long time and was told to continue the beer, and other etimulants were given her. In the most natural way in the world she began to like it. and grew to depend upon it for a false strength. No harm was thought of it by her friends, as many ot them had tried the same prescription This young woman gave berth to seven children in ten years, and nursed them all. or tried to. on beer, egg nog with whisky, and such things as nurses as well as doctors are fond of recommending to young mothers. All but one of the chil? dren died in early childhood, and the mother became an invalid who had ac? quired a love for strong drink. She alone was regarded as blameworthy, was divorced and disgraced, and died of a broken heart. Now, was the doc? tor or the young woman to be blamed? She had no experience of the world, did not dream that the passion for stim? ulants could be created by innocently drinking beer under a doctor's dlrec toln, and met with no remonstrance from husband or mother. The doctor knew the facts, and had dealt with un? controllable appetites many times, and $een many men s?1'4 women ruin? d by the medicine he prescribe?' He a j* t\ man I of mature Judgment; she was a child. Which one was to blame? In England, far more women are In? temperate than in America, and hospi? tals for their cure are common there, and I more than suspect that the doc? tors do prescribe it unduly. In Amer? ica, I am sure they do, and I could nar? rate many instances of deadly harm which came to ignorant or thoughtless patients through their prescriptions. I will ask space for but one. A young man during an attack of typhoid fever was cared for by his sister, away from home, among strangers, When the pa? tient was convalescing, the doctor di? rected her to give him a certain amount of whisky every day, and she complied. The illness was a long one; there was a relapse and a very sten* leturn to health. The man was well at last, but with a taste for stimulants which ha? been the curse of his life and that of his family. Tho sister has been almost as unhappy as the man himself, and la? ments her ignorance to this day. Was the young man to blame, or the sister? Or was tbe doctor, who knew all about the ease with which the mad desire for alcohol may bo acquired by either a man or a woman? The writer in The Hos? pital says, further: "Even if. however, it were tho practice of the profession to constantly recommend women to take a small ???????? of whisky with their food for tho benefit of their health, we deny that anyone would be justified in ascribing t?> them the ruin of their patients." It seems that in England doctors are accused of proscribing alco? hol unduly, and it is a well-known fact that intemperance is already a great evil there among women, and that it is said to be increasing rapidly. It is my opinion that one might be justified in placing blame upon physicians if they do constantly recommend alcohol, in however small quantities, to be taken by their patients with their food. Drink among women is comparatively a new problem in. America. The great Influx of foreigners has brought the problem, and no thoughtful person can Ignore it. Already, in Chicago, the mayor has been forced to forbid their drinking at public bars, and to make radical orders about women's en? trances tt> saloons. Of course from time immemorial a certain class of disreputa? ble women have sustained themselves by hard drinking; but the evil now is threatening all classes, and insidiously undermining the foundations of moral? ity ami religion In our land. In certain districts in France, drinking among women has become so common and so excessive that one grave scientist expresses the fear that alcohol will, in time destroy the race. Is it not time that a very strong and united protest should go up in this country against this new departure of ?Tomen, and the doc? tor who takes the risks of freely pre? scribing alcohol for them ought to be held to great responsibility? A young gentleman having called in his physician, said: "Now, sir, i wish no more trifling; my desire is that you at once strike the root of my disease!" "It shall be aone," replied the doctor, and lifting his cane he smashed the wine decanter which stood on the table.
