SAY LIQUOR DRINKERS ARE POSITIVELY INSANE The Nervous System, Controlling the Vital Organs and Brain, Functionally Deranged by Alcoholic Poison — Wonderful Results Obtained by Catlin Treatment in Three Days The world's greatest medical author ities unanimously agree, at this date. that alcohol is an Insidious poison— cumulative —and that wbep the system has become poisoned with it there is hut one antidote—more alcohol; that the only relief and cure of the liquor habit is a remedy that will eliminate the poison from tho system. Ten years ago-some eight years prior to tin; verdict of the medical world—the Gatlin Institute made pub lic announcement to the same effect, and that tin- Qhatlln treatment, by a process of quick elimination, would cure any case of liquor drinking in three days. Since the day ten years ago when the Gatlin Institute made public the Gatlin treatment, more than 11,000 persons, as shown by the rec ords of the institute, have taken the Gatlin treatment and were perfectly cured. There has been failure to cure in no case. And the medical profession has made another startling announcement to the effect that every liquor drinker, no matter tlie quantity he drinks or whether or not he be ... peiioalc, steady or so-called "moderate" drinker, is in :t degree insane. One drink of alcoholic liquor will up set mental poise; it exercises a pe culiar influence over the brain. A se date, reserved man will attempt gaiety and witticisms; a naturally "talkative," care-free man will become glum, mo rose and very serious. It takes them out of their normal selves. This is a departure from the strictly rational, and any departure from the strictly ra tional is a corresponding departure to ward irrationality—or INSANITY. Hut a peculiarity of alcoholic poison ins and the "Irrationality" it produces is that with the disappearance of the poison from the system all craving and desire for drink immediately disappear also.

Then Freed While assisting his aged grand mother and mother on to a car at the Pacific Clectrlc station at Sixth and Main Streets yesterday afternoon Nor man LoWell Cutter. 17 years old, be came involved In an altercation with Harry Yorba, a gate keeper, when the latter refused to permit him to pass through the Kates to the ear platform because ho did not have a ticket. Cutter was assisting his grandparent and mother on the car with several suit cases and was passing through the gate, when Yorba grabbed him by the left arm at a point where it had been re cently vaccinated. Cutter wrenched himself free, but Yorha again grasped the arm, this time squeezing it so hard that it became almost unbearable for Cutter. Cutter Creed himself and struck the gateman, knocking him to the floor. Cutter was arrested and taken to central police headquarters, but was released after ho had made an explana tion. the vital organs of the body controlled -by the nervouw system at once resume their natural functions In a highly sat isfactory degree. The strange nervous ness, which only alcohol In some form will relieve, gives way to a nerve-calm that is very gratifying to the man who has felt tho nervous demand for liquor. So successful lins the Gatlin treat ment proved In curing the liquor habit in three days that Oatlin institutes are now located in practically all the larso cities of tlie United States and de mands from foreign countries are com- Ing In for it daily. The absence of dangerous hypodermic injections ap peals to thinking men and, coupled With the fact that there are no fail ures, lia.s made the Gatlin the national treatment for liquor drinking. The Gatlin Institute accepts the pa tient for treatment and binds itself under rigid contract to effect a cure in three dayH. The cure shall bo sat isfactory in every particular to the pa tient or, when leaving the institute, the very reasonable fee paid shall be re funded. It is inconvenient for many persons to e.ime a distance for treatment, even though they are required to remain but three days. In these cases the Oatlin home treatment should be or dered. If simple directions are fol lowed a eui-i! win result. The Gatlin Institute, located at 1125 South Grand avenue, Los Angeles, has issued a series of books on liquor drinking and its effects, which every person should read even though treat ment may not be needed. These books and copies of contracts under which patients are treated, sent free, postage paid, securely sealed, to any address. The telephone numbers Of the Gatiin Institute of r.os Angeles are Home F1022 and Broadway 1377. Those liv ing In the city are invited to call.
