Alcohol and the Brain.
BY DR. D. H. MANN. P. R. W. G. T.
How often and aptly physiolo
gists quote from Cassio's excla
mation in Othello-Shakespeare:
"0, God, that men should put
an enemy into their mouths to
steal away their brains! That
we should, with joy, revel,pleas
ure and applause transform our
selves into beasts! To be now a
sensible man, and by-and-by a
fool, and presently a beast! 0,
strange! every inordinate cup is
unblessed, and the ingredient is
the devil."
A practical observer can, at a
glance at a man under the influ
ence of alcoholics, determine to a
ertainty how far his brain is
under the immediate damaging
affect of the drug.
If he be noisy, boisterous, song
[ul, glib, rich without money, hi
larious, or proclaiming his great
wisdom, or athletic powers, the
observer knows that the upper
nd greater mass of the brain,
the cerebrum, is involved, as
that is the seat of judgement or
moral and intellectual faculties,
ll of which are now manifestly
weakened and thrown in discord.
Next we see the victim unsteady
taggering, tottering and falling.
[t is now patent that the cerre
bellum or lower portion of the
reat mental organ, the brain,
malled its base, is involved in the
lamage, as there is centered the
-ontrolling nerve influence over
;he muscular movements of the
)ody. But at length the van
uished subject is on his back
- i th deep, heavy, sonorous
areathing, when it is at once ap

One reason for the silliness in

Lnd in others for the rage, ugli
iess and quarrelsomeness,is that
he brain is poisonedits albumen
iardened, its blood vessels para
ized and congested, thus unbal
Lcing the mind, of which the
>rain is the temple.
It is a well established physio
.ogical fact that alcohol scars the
rain as the knife scars the skin,
n that it enl-s rges the cells of
;he brain tissues, and from that
nlarged state they never resume
;heir former normal condition,
>ut remain as a latent tinder box,
eady to ignite at the touch of
he first spark.
The reformed often feels after
time that he is safe, having
~onquered his old enemy, but
>ne drink now will show him
;hat he is not his own master,
ut is again a slave to the old
Lppetite. What a price for a
So we see in this deranging
process, alcohol first irritates
ad disturbs equilibrium, then
poisons and weakens the vaso
notor nerve system, and finally
produces almost deadly sedation,
md quite often so. Under such
ircumstances can it be possible
hat men can long retain their
aormal soundness of mind? Can
:hey be stable thinkers? Yet
3hey often prove themselves so
y the frequency of their lodg

To maintain its equilibrium, the

While the brain sgjffers, other
>rgans dependant upon it for
aerve force, suffer with it in the
punishment. For instance, it is
ao uncommon experience to
neet an habitual drinker with
runkard's blindness, technically
nown as Amblyopia Potatorum,
~aused by want of proper nour
.shment for the optic nerve, cans
ng, primarily, a misty or cloudy
appearance before the eves ren
aering objects indistinct, which
>ften increases to the degree of
blindness. The writer has in
u mind several cases which have
3me under his observation.
Then to the drinker let me
say, stop, think, ponder and
weigh the consequences, then
turn to the right and keep in the
middle of the road.
It is a cleverly proven fact
that the habitual use of alcohol
as a beverage cannot be indulged
in even in very small quantities
without injury to some of the
bodily organism which will man
ifest itself sooner or later.
Some of the parts which are
injured by even small doses of
alcohol, are the general nervous
system, particularly those nerves
so closely connected with the
brain, supplying the organs of
hearing, of sight, of taste, of
smelling, etc. Obervations and
new experiments by scientists
are constantly confirming these
Learned medical men all along
down the ages have raised their
warning voices against its use as
a beverage, even before the
Christian er'a and in every centu
rv sice.
No well-informed sphysician
will for a moment (unless he has
become a slave to the habit) con
ten tha~t a man in ordinary
health is in any way benefited by
its use any more than dumb ani
mals would be. Nor will it in
any way accelerate the amount
of mental or manual labors.
Read what that eminent sur
geon, Sir Henry Thompson, once
said: "There is no single habit
in this country which so much
tends to deteriorate the qualities
of the race, and so much disqual
ifies it for endurance in that com
petition which in the nature of
things must exist."
As a rule the drinker's judg
ment is impaired, thus his appe
tite is uncontrolled and drink
seems to be the god he worships,
and too otten it predominates his
own physical condition and that
of his children.
Reason, judgment, conscience.
pride, self-respect, regard fo-r
loved ones and a general good
name are all subordinated for
that godappetite. Pain, disease,
debility and brevity of life star
ing him in the face at every step
in his dissipated career seems to
be no barrier in the way of the
drunkard's appetite, regardless
of the value of a vigorous
stomach. pure blood, healthy
nerves, a clear mind and sound
Why is it that the majority of
drinking men are not as keen of
perception as the abstainer?
Because of the enlarged brain
cells above mentioned. Alcohol
in the brain, that great "Dome
of thought and palace of the
soul," in its pranks among the
nerves and tissues of that organ
is as ruthless as the paw of a
Wall street bear.
The physical benefit of alcohol
to a man is about as difficult to
find as the jaw' to the mouth of
a volcano or the face to the head
of a river.
Strange that with such glaring
facts before us warning us of the
danger of alcoholic indulgence,it
has so many devotees.
But it is only another of the
surprising evidences that differ
ent people arrive at differfnt
conclusions from the same line
of facts before them, just as di
verse opinions are formed of a
icture when viewed by two dif
erent individuals. An artist
once showed a gentleman a paint
ing he had just finished. The
gentleman said, "My good sir,
you paint beautifully, you should
never paint anything else than
birds, those ostriches are most
The distinguished artist turned
to him saying, "These are not
ostriches, they are angels."
If a man is to be governed by
appetite, the whole physical sys
tem will become dwarfed and
wrecked. Think for a moment
what mankind would become if
freed from the early infirmities
and depleted constitutions conse
uent upon our international in
ulgences dictated by appetites
nd passions, handed down
through the ancestral line, tak
ing new additions in their course
hich like the mountain glacier,
will by-and-by terminate in one
tremendous avalanche and crash
from its own accumulated weight.
Providence has ordered that
all animal natures shall thrive,
improve, strengthen and surpass
their. ancestors. But man, by
yielding to appetites and passions
thwarts God's primary designs
and dwarfs his own kind.
How careful he is to improve
the stock of his dumb animals by
keeping them up to' the demands
of natures wise- laws. So too,
have we improved the vegetable
kingdom almost beyond concep
tion, and still we strive on for
greater perfection. Bute~ man

his nature by yielding to appe

Louis Appelt. Esq., 'Manning, S. C.:
DEAR lrt. APPELT: I am glad to
see you pcople are at last making some
efforts to induce white immigration to
Souti Carolina. I can't think of any
thing that would be of more benefit to
our State than for 30,000 or 40,000 white
immigrants to move there within the
next ten or fifteen years. I think now,
after considerable travel over the West
ern part of the United States, that
South Carolina's natural advantages
compare very favorably with much
more prosperous States in that section,
but I must admit that I believe that
the greater prosperity there results
from the fact that a Westerp farmer
works twelve hours a day, six days in
the week, twelve months of the year.
I believe thrt Scandinavians would
be the best immigrants, for the reason
that they furnish the greatest per cent.
cf farmers and dairymen of all the
European immigrants that we get, and
that is what South Carolina needs.
If a comhaission from your Legislat
ure, composed of farmers, would travel
through the grain belt of the United
States (Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota,
North and South Dakota) during har
vest season, they would learn a good
deal that would be of interest to South
Carolina in regard to the selection of
immigrants, for you know that about
half of the population of that section is
foreign born, mostly Germans and
I am a great admirer of the Scandi
navians. During 1896 1 was employed
as a laborer with a threshing machine
and traveled through the country from
Hutchinson, Kas., to Aberdeen, S. D.,
and had every opportunity to observe
these people in their home life. They
are sober, thrifty, law-abiding, healthy,
hospitable and easily Americanized.
A Swedish housewife can do her own
cooking and washing, keep her house
clean, milk six or eight cows. work in
the garden, raise twins and keep in a
good humor all the time. And I tell
you the girls are worth looking at too.
I see there is some opposition to the
immigration idea, but I guess it comes
principally from that class of men that
never pay more than $1.39 taxes per
year, all told, and who have never been
further from home than Columbia.
How any white South Carolinian, know
ing the large majority of negroes in the
State, can do otherwise than welcome a
white settler is more thaJ can under
stand, for no matter what race immi
grants may be members of they can in
course of events be assimilated, but the
negro, never. I am no enemy of the
negro, (but I believe the day will come
when they will have to be separated
from the whites. Of course many think
in this era of good feeling is no time to
bring up the "race question," but I
believe the South's only absolute safe
uard lies in a healthy white majority.
