Alcohol was invented t'óO jfarsaeo, in
Arabia. Ladies used it itb a powder to
paint hrrmelres that thry might appear
more beautiful, and this powder was called
alcohol During the reifi ',f . William and
Mury. an act was passed encouraging the
manufacture cf spirits. Soon after, intem
perance aád pcfi'giicy j-revfcüí-d to rich an
extent that the retailers of intoxicating

Aleut tlii tiene it vas introduced uto the
Coles:, at the Unit'"! er thn
called. The first notice we have of its use
in public hfo. was among the iuborert iu the
Hungarian mines, in tne blteenth century.
In I7Ó1. it was used by the English soldiera
as a cordial. The alcohol from J Europa
was tnad-3 from grapes, and ao'.d to Italy
and Spain as a medicine. The Qeoeete
afterward made it from gtain, and sold it as
a medicina in bottles, under the name cf
the -'nattr if life." Unttl tho sixteenth ccn
inry it was kept by apothecaries as a medi
cine. During the reign fif Eenry VIII.,
brandy xtnt first, known in Ireland, aud soon
its alarming effects induced the governor
lo pn;s a low ptoh.bhing its manufacturé.
About 120 years .g0 it was used as a bever
age, especially uniong the soldier3 in the
English colonies in North America, under
the preposterous notion that it prt Tented
sickness and made cenfearjessin ihu'Caldof
ittle. It was locked upon as a sovereign
cure, hucli is n Uriel history oi us intro
