LOXIX)X, Sept. 1 All American due tors arc regarded by . foreign medical mon as more or less expert concerning al c.'lio, both as regards tlie consequence of goin without it altogether; over-in-iulgciice, and the various btag'ti of in eLriety betwixt and between. Therefore, the assembled doctors at the meeting of the British Mcdicai as sociation at (ilasgow listened with jjreat interest to what Dr. John T. Mat-Curdy, of Cornell Medical college, had to nay about "alcohol in its relation to human economy." Each ono of us in varying degrees, he said, has the same dillieulty in meeting the world as the unfortunates who demonstrate their incapacity dramatic ally. The "normals" drugged themselves with cheap iiction, theaters, and moving pictures; . above all they forgot them selves iu Mcial intercourse. '"Uhen, however, a man is tired or op pressed with care," L'r. .uaeLunty went on, "how can he ' forget Ins obsessing anxieties suJheiently to become tocial. Jt he be normal a small amount of aleo iioi will Kive the necessary relaxation. C ouviv.ality is more important lor the maintenance of our mental ability and eliectneuess than we realize, iuiiuuier ajde people aie happier and therelore healthier because tney indulge moder ately in alcohol. "We live in an imperlect world im periect largely because we liave not yet gained the capacity to govern our own instincts. Alcohol is a crutch that man has discovered to help him. with this Uu ability." " , Dr. Mat-Curdy dealt with what he called the "paranoiac group.' Iu them he ?aid. a drink or two brought out quarrelsome and dangerou- tendencies. They were apt to imagine slights and in sults. Frequently they were women hat ers, and allected the company of men al most exclusively. "These men are not well-adapted peo ple, and rebel at dicipline or authority, tirink brings these anti-social tendencies to the surface. As marriage makes the nn'st persistent demand for social adap tation that we know of, many of these men begin to drink only after marriage. "The inmate rebellion at the bondage .f- marriage appears when alcohol has liberated" their inhibit fois. - They be come querulous, and beat or. abuse their wi'VHs even4' Saturday night. Later, de lusions anil infidelity may appear, and eventually become fixed. Then the vic tim becomes certifiable, and is eonlined.' Sir dames Barr, of Liverpool, continu ing the discussion, said that the main value of alcohol was social. "People like mv-elf." said Sir James, "take it because they like it. A great deal of social unrest is due to the hi"' cost of alcohol. I notice that cutthroats in Ireland and Ihissia are largely tee totalers." Dr. C. Sullivan, medical superintendent of Broadmoor asvlum. said that "alcohol, as regards insanity, is a recligibh; fac tor." Dr. M. Ilindhede, of Copenhagen, discussed the'eJFeet of the severely re stricted supply of alcohol on mortality in Denmark. The surprising result of thn war-rationing sv-tein. he said, which included the restriction of alcohol, was not the reduction of the mortality r;ite but the rapidity of the reduction. The most natural explanation of this seemed to h that the effects of alcohol were n-t limited to c'.rnnkiirds only. The death rate of the whole country drooped from '2.r to 10.4 n-T l.lKlp. which was the lowest mortality fivrure tlnit h:id ever been registered in anv European country at anv tim.

EL PASO, Texas, Sept. 1. Juarez pro hibition otlicials, following warnings is sued by physicians and peace ofSieers to Americans here against drinking boot leg liquor, have taken a hand in an ef fort to abolish a number of alleged il licit stills where the liquor is manufac tured. Liquid resembling whiskey, wines, beer, tequilla, (Mexican whiskey) and other liquors in Juarez, have been found on this side to contain injurious ele ments', although it is sealed as genuine. Ik'alcr in Juarez find a ready market for empty liquor bottles, and double price is. paid when labels are not broken. Illicit manufacturers have several meansof deceiving buyers. They get a cheap grade of whiskey and put it- in bottles which contained expensive brands." Water and tea frequently are used to dilute the liquid. Others burn sugar, make tea from, haves of various kinds and add a little alcohol. Wine is treated with colored matter and arti !iei;:l flavors. An over supply of .beer made in Jua'tz. Chihuahua City, Monterrey and Mexico Wty. offered .to 3uaroz saloon1, has created another upheavel in Juarez liquor circles. . The 'wholesale price of beer has been, slashed and retail prices reduced. , - One place is offering a "free lunch" with a five cent beer. " Pile Sufferers Can You Answer These Questions?

DIAMOND FIND IN GUIANA. i Some of the Difficulties of Recognition World Fame us Gems. There are many more diamond mines in the world than the ordinary obser vers imagine: the difficulty is to find them. They frequently occur in alluvial soil, above 'which rock has formed, thus biding them from human gaze, to which thev are betrayed by mere accident, as recently in ISritish Guiana. Mild and unobserved seismic -force may slightly fracture the covering quartz and rain and land waters percolating through the soil will soon widen the gap. permitting the fhiimonds, as the earth revolves, to work their way to the surface of the soil. Even when seen, it needs an expert eye to detect their vain1;' and to differentiate between a piece of round rock and a real diamond in the rouh. South African prospectors call these fissures "diamond pipes." Cullman made himself famous as thp discoverer of diamonds at what , is-now known as Kimberley, in Griqnaland West; but even when he observed children playing with veritable diamonds, and saw th;in staring him in the face from the walls of the I hitch farmer's adobe-brick dwelline. he could not feel certain and had to travel away to procure expert ad vice before making his discovery known to the world. So in British Guiana, the discoverer must have nossessed experience before being able to confidently declare he had seen real diamonds. The largest diamond in the world was I the Cullinan diamond, found in the : Premier Diamond Mine, near Pretoria, in January, V.K)k In 11HJ7 it was pre- i sented to King Edward VII. in com memoration of the granting of self- i government to the Transvaal. It weighed 3.0,'JO carats and was valued at $7..t))(),(KX. being finally cut in pieces, many of which now adorn the royal crown of Great Dritain. The 'Excelsior," weighing U71 carats (uncut), . was also found in South Africa. -and the "Great Mogul", 2S0 carats (cut) ; "Regent," 410 carats (uncut), and "Orloff", SMH) carats (uncut), and "Kldi-i-nor." 103 curats (cut), were all found in India. The "Great Mogul" vanished and has never been since disco vered. It was seen at the Court of Aurungzebe by a French jeweler, in '1005; was stolen at the sacking of Delhi in 17' 55). was pre sumably cut into pieces and never since seen. Tho"Orloff"was stolen from the eye of an Indian idol, purchased by Catherine of Russia, ami placed in the Czar s scep tre. The "Koh-i-nor" became the pro perty of Queen Victoria of England, who left it to Queen Alexandra. Drazil was, before the advent of South African diamonds, the chief source of sup ply, but until comparatively recent times the diamond was regarded as inferior to rubies and emeralds, when the art of cutting and polishing placed thejn in the front rank of precious stones. - Cecil Rhodes made a huge fortune by amalgamating' all the diamond companies '"- ".
