Men have spent years: Yen! many of them a lifetime, stfiving to determine the eitniet.tr- to produce a substance more complex. Their labors have'been rewarded in a more universal knowledge of chem hui-y iuid kindred ^eienees, ami in the' idi-eovery and artificial formation of rUfjf^ and chemicals, which have proven useful, in commerce, the arts, •and in the researches of scientists the world over. iS'.it while th-'- succe3B of the scientist in almost every department has been in.'irked. stilTto the thoughtful observ- DJ man or woman, the questiou pre .st:iits itself. Has his investigations and researches in that portion of chemistry which has to do with poisons especially that class of poisons, known us narcotics, been productive of as much good U9 it has been productive of harm? Is the misery and dispair of the morphine friends or the slaves to opium, tobacco, chioral cocaine and the bromideB in any sense balanced by the buffering these drugs may alleviate? In other words, i9 their usefulness in surgical operations proportionate to the misery they occasion? I think not. The forming of habits in the use of these drugs iB perhaps responsible for most of the harm they do. The trite saying,—Habits formed by unseen de grees. As creeks run rivers, so rivers run seas is as trne of bad as of good habits and the poor wretch who Suds himself almost too late, the victim of the morphine or opium habit, can certainly testify as to their gradual and insiduous growth. A writer in the Popular Science Monthly observes, that, "A boy begins in ginger beer and ends in ginger rum The medical "tonic" delusion progress es from Malt Extract to Schlitz Best and the nicotine habit once introduced, the alcohol habit soon follows." Gould's Medical Dictionary defines a narcotic as any drug that produces sleep or slumber and at the same time lelieves pain. It may be well to speak of the physic al and mental affects, arising from the u*e of some of the principal narcotics. First—Tobacv.o having as its chief ingredient, the poisonous narcotic poison, nicotine, deserves our atten tion because of its wide Bpread use and demoralizing effect. A3ide from the fllthine6s ol the habit, its effect upon the system is detrimental. The tobacco uaer findb that the system at Qrst resents the forming of the habit and he usually experience nausea and headache on his drst at tempt to smoke or chew. After repeat ed attempts however tne system be comes inured to the poison and the eilects are as not as noticeable al though they doubtless are as great The presence of the poison in tne sys. tt-iii tends to overwork the elimating organs, the skin, the liver and kidneys, and in consequence, dryness of the mucus membranes, dyspepsia, nervous ness, paralysis, smoker's sore throat, irregular heart action, weakened vis ion, brain exhaustion, and many other symptoms may appear. When the habit is formed early, a stunting of growth is invariabiy the result. In my own experience, I nover meet a case of dyspepsi.t or stomach trouble in a young or middle-aged man but that I inquire as to whether or not he is addicted to'theuse of narcotics or intoxicants. __ Tobacco smOke is injurious, espieatly to the young. Its co stituents are carbonic acid, carbonic oxide, a pois onous gas, and nmonia gases. Thi? lirst tends to produce sleeplessness unu heaiiache, the second affects the heart and muscles, th third causes' dryness of the mouth and-throat meuibraues. I never see a small boy smoking cigars or cigarets, but that I feel like asking—Which is to -w blatnj, this boy or hi* parent*. I am not far j-omovej from boyhood myseif "ttnd tn i.o':. but have tome ympathy for the little ctiau who would solikt'. t'j be grown up ami carry a cigar between his teetii ami ~fepit and swagger as he hits se-n some grown up mau do. After all even those of more mature ye:.rs can not say. that they, themselves do not rive to imitate those whom they a'luiir and hold as the'r ide*l. I shall speak of the rema'.niu^ pois ons but briefly, and shall tiriveto give some ide of their nature and affects upon the human sy.7t.: ii. Opium, the cubtle drug, which the Orient harvest.-, and value* above all I other export-1, and to he use of which millions of its people re addict ed, is prepared the poppy. ^55 Its medicinal use, is toprodue sleep, and act as A'Mdative. Its use, how ever, i» attended with theldanger that the opium habit may be formed. Tbe effects of its constant use are to shat ter the body and mind, to render one unhappy, and perhaps drive him to a suicide's grave. A strong degree of ex hileration is at first experienced, but succeeding doses have to be stronger and stronger to produce the same ef feet. Soon the victim becomes aware that he is in the toils of a habit, which he seems to be unable to throw off, and only too often does he come to his final end through an overdose taken by mis take, or maybe intentionally, because of dispair and melancholy The public has been aroused to just.: indignation, because of the recent ex-, posure of opium smuggling into the Nebraska prisons, and an investigation is now on foot to try and discover if the laws regulating the sale of the nar cotic are not violated in more than this instance. Next to tho*e addicted to thfc Opium habit those who worship at the shrine of Morpheus, are most to be' pitied. In the Morphine habitj the patient loooes self-control is morally irresponsible is untruthful and irresolute. Intense anx iety, restlessness, and a sensu of im pending danger are prominent symp toms. Chloral, chloroform and cocaine, like opium and morphine are also used as sedatives. Cocaine being used most frequently as a local anaesthetic. Their use may become a habit, and to bieak it will be found fully as difficult as any of the others mentioned. Their effects are principally upon the nerves, and the mentality. If the effects of these poisons were only visited upon those addicted to thoir use, this evil would not present so baneful an aspect. The children of such parents are made liable to the formation of a taste for the narcotics are made liable to morbid cravings a diseased brain, and a neurotic system. The children of Buch parents are very frequently endowed with less will power, and less resolution, than those of parents who have never used these drugs. Indeed these powerful poisons are held by some of our best health au thorities to be responsible for the great number of nervous wrecks in our already crowded hospitals and asylums. I have been told, that one who points out a need for reforming, should also suggest a means of affecting the refor mation. I believe that reforming, like char ity, should begin at home, and because I believe thus, in suggesting a remedy, I shall speak of the home influence first, Every mother cannot help but feel the necessity for proper home training to fit the younger ones to meet the temptations of life But while they may be extremely careful that no ex ternal influences may taint the life of their loved ones, yet I am convinced that in many cases does the mother herself pave the way for forming an appetite for narcotics. How many women in the city of Den ison do you suppose, have not administ ered potent soothing syrups and nos truuis to their children duriug the pei iod of teething, or to quiet peevishness arising from childish ailment? One of the characteria. ics of narcot ics is that they produce sleep. There is hardly a patent soothing syrup or. the market, which does not contain either laudunum or paregoric, both tinctures of opium. It is only in the last few years that physicians have awakened to the fac that the effect of these poisonous drugs on the deiicuto system of a child is pos itively dangerous and harmful, bui they find themselves almost powerless to check ics use, so well established has it become. W 1 recommend a crusade against the doping of infants with every patent nostrum that the papers may advertise, I recommend the enforcement of laws, and the enactment of more string, eut^laws regulating tbe sale and use of narcotics. I recommend, especially to 'parents, a more careful study of the laws of y giene and physiology, coupled with a more exact understanding of tbe laws of heredity, and last and above all, I recommend a crusade to establish ft higher plain of chrittian morals, both for the benefit derived directly, and the wholesome inlluence they will have or others.
