WHAT IS RUINING FRANCE. < ImIiiii-iI Hutt ll ls Ni.I U Inc lint Alco? holic ll.inors ?Hui the Ul Hi? llas Pave.I tilt- Waj. lu a letter to th.- Christian Register from Paris, Hon. Samuel ,I. Barrows i highly ini.i .stine resume of the proceedings of the International Tens* perena. otly held in thar .itv. Referring to the statement >>f a French writer that it is not wine, but alcoholic liquors that is ruining Franc , .Mr. Harrows says: "Hut the writer not meet fairly thc facts of thc present situation. 11'the fathers drink wine, ihe sons arc drinking something worse. The transition from drinks containing a small percentage of alco? hol to those containing it in larger and more dangerous quantities is i made; and thc multiplication of liquors of all sorts in France, badly adulterated and highly charged wish alcohol been going on at a rapid and dam ? rate. M. Thomas Grimm, in an article in thc Petit Journal, points out that. though Immoderate drinking in France ,.t date from yesterday anti in nu old habit, the kind of drunken!.' ' to-day is not the same as former? ly, when wine consumed in thc cities was simply and naturally diluted with water. Drunkenness was then gay, ea uberant and Inoffensive. Now it la brutal and aggressive, tine sud mother, speaking to Hr. Motet, who has made a profound study ol' alcoholism, said: ?When my husband became drunk. Le ? imply wearisome, never di When my son drinks, he becomes crazy, and I am afraid of him.' And this difference M. Grimm attributes. , the consumption of wine or even of [inrc alcohol, but to thc absorption of alcohol .hait:.'.! with toxicaubati itora and others in France have given much attention to this subject of adulteration, but witt.t s majority of thc members of the eon being French, much attention wai? ro what can bc doi.e to modcrat. and reduce the evils of intoxication in France. The preaa almost unanimously - that prohibition could ni I sibly succeed here. Legislators seeking rather to reduce the number of saloons through -..me scheme of high license, in Belgium tlie number of sa? loons has been greatly reduced by this means. IC. Algave, the eminent pi ?or of finance In the Law Facull Paris, proposes to establieh a monopoly of alcohol by the stale; and it is pr<> I to monopolize nol only the tale of alcohol, but also its manufacture. But this would mean the driving out of this industry of a vast amount of cap? ital; and there is no rei on to suppose that tin- manufacture by the would reduce the consumption, though it might reduce some of it:- pernicious effeel GLEANINGS.
