EFFECTS OF DRINK ON MIND AND BODY Dr. Mnlrhend of CrrUbtoii Medical College l,rclurr Entertainingly on the Topic at Clifton 11 III thurcli. I Dr. A. I Mulrheud, who occupies the chair of pharmacology and materia medlca In Crcighton Medical college, delivered a lecture In Ihe Clifton Hill PrcsbyKviun church on "The Scientlflc Bldo of the Alcoholic Question." The lecture was in nowise technical or argumentative, but guvc the results of the Investigations by accepted authorities, who In their experi ment! and Himlyaea were not Influenced In anywlw by sentiment, but only by de sire to reach truthful conclusions aa to the effect of the use of intoxicating or ulcohollc liquor on the human system. Dr. Mulrhead auid that much of the in formation of the public on the temperance question la derived from temperance lec turers and mlacouceptloiiH of the real ef fect of the Introduction of alcohol Into the human syatem. llo believed It best that the simple truth should be known, rather than some, of the extravagant, deductions of persons who are not accurately In formed mid who deal with only one of the many sides of the alcohol question. In many discussions which relate to the social and moral aspect of the question extravagant assertions are often made, and young people In the, course of experience, learning that these assertions are not true, ure Inclined to view with less disfavor the practice of drinking. The results of sclen- STOMACH TrtOUB E CCMiV.ON NOW Winter Food uml Living Strain Di gestive Organs. I e Ml-o-na and He Well. The hearty food and overeating, so com mon in winter, strain the stomach and digestive organs so that by this time the average person Is out of health. It may be a simple headache, possibly sleepless ness, or a general tired, weak feeling, but the chances are that the stomach la weak and cannot proer1y take care of the food, and as a result there la heartburn. Indi gestion, lack bf energy and a general fagged out slate. The stomach needs health and strength. Thu various aches and pulns that you have are the stomach's cry for help and Its warning that it tins been overworked. Give It strength by taking a Ml-o-na tublet before each meal, and it will soon do Its work so promptly and naturally that you will not realise you have a stomach. There will be no acidity, no flatunecy, no griping ulsjut the heart, no unpleasant gases, no furred tongue, no inflammation of the mucous membrane. A 60c box of Ml-o-na will bring buoyancy of spirit in place of lassitude and despond ency. It will help the overtaxed stomach to start fairly on the road to health. It will give the sleep necessary to brain and nerve centers. Ask Sherman ft McConnell. one of the most reliable drug firms In this section, to show you the strong guarantee under which they sell Ml-o-na. Tse Ml-a-no and you can aoon rat what you want and all you want, for It will strengthen the weak est condition of your stomach and re suburb good digestion. title demonstrations go very far towards establishing a convincing basis for appeals In favor of strict temperance proceeding from the social, moral and religious side of the question. Dr. Mulrhead first considered the effect of alcohol on the nervous system. The progressive effects, proportioned to the quantity of alcohol taken, on warmth, a feeling of comfort and of Increased phy sical and mental vigor; the sense of care becomes dulled, and then self control be comes largely or altogether lost. Scien tific Investigations have proven, he said, that the cause of these effects is not stimulation, as Is commonly believed; for the Immediate effect of alcohol when taken Into the system, proportioned to the amount taken, Is the depression of the higher centers of the brain, the paralysis of the latest acquisitions of the brain un til the person becomes as a child and all sense of responsibility and the control of the muscles is lost. In other words, It represents the progressive paralysis of the faculties In the Inverse order of their culti vation. He said that alcohol always at tacks the more highly developed tissues. The stimulation resulting from the alcohol Is due not to the drink Itself, but to the surroundings: conversation, music and all those features connected with drinking which go under the name of good fellow ship. He nsserted experiments conducted with sclent iflc exactness have proven the truth of this conclusion. Home False Impressions. Functional power Is really lessened, and this when the power of self-control Is lessened. He said tho feeling of Increased strength is false, and cited experiments made In the German army which resulted In the cutting off entirely of the use of alcoholic beverages during marches. He cited also that In all training In athletics alcohol is a forbidden luxury. Actual ob servations .ind comparisons have proven that in certain kinds of activity, such as typesetting, typewriting and the adding of columns of figures, a person having taken only a nominal quantity of alcohol makes more mistakes, notwithstanding the person really believes he Is doing faster and superior work. Dr. Mulrhead stated It as being a determined scientific fact that alcohol Impairs the ability to do physical and mental work, no matter how Bmall the quantity taken. Muirhtnd next considered the effect of alcohol on the digestion. He said diges tion depends very largely on the tasta, smell and flavor of food. If the taste or smell of alcohol Is pleasant to a person, It will help digestion, as It will Increase the secretions In tht mouth and the flow of gastric juice, nut he said It must be understood that this fact depends on whether the alcohol Is greatly diluted be fore bring taken. If the alcohol Is strong enough to be an irritant It la harmful to digestion. la Alcohol a Food t The lecture was concluded by a refer ence to the question, "Is alcohol food?" Dr. Mulrhead unqualifiedly held that when added to the ordinary diet of a person In normal physical condition alcohol performs no good service aa a food, although the best scientific authorities of the world say that it Is a food. The fact Is, he said, that only about 10 per cent is lost, the remainder being oxidized and changed Into energy; but while this Is true It Is doubt ful If the gain of food compensates for the consideration of alcohol as a food. Dr. Muirhcid meana alcohol introduced Into the system In a greatly diluted form. When It It strong enough to be an Irri tant It actually cooks the cells of the nervous system. In caaea of Imi-alred health, when food la not assimilated, ha said alcohol doe furnish energy, and in such cases may b regarded aa emergency ood. ' M'KEAS'S MOTOR A SUCCESS Trial Trip of Union Pacifio No. 1 JProves All that Was Expected. CAR STARTS AT HIGH GEAR ALL RIGHT I'roblem Solved by Superintendent of Motive Power Who Has Made Improvement of Whlss Wagon Machinery. The dawning of a new era In the his tory of local passenger traffic was marked when Union Pacific motor car No. 1 beat the schedule time of train No. 6 from Val ley to Omuha. Superintendent of Motive Power W. R. McKeen'a plan for starting with high gear has worked out successfully and In the opinion of the railroad officials who took the trip the problem of railway motor cars has been solved. The run for Valley was begun at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, with Mr. Mc Keen at the throttle. In the car was a party of railroad men and business men und their wives and representatives of the Omaha newspapers. It was u matter of much Interest to all, for the car had not yet been farther than South Omaha. Misfortune marked the beginning of the run. In starting the car at high gear on the grade from the yards to the main line a set screw was sprung and other damage sustained. This necessitated the trip to Valley at low gear, less than twenty miles an hour, while a machinist waa making re pairs. Valley was reached at almost I o'clock and a stop was made for lunch. By the time for return the machinery had been repaired and the car was stnrted at high gear. It behaved wonderfully well and ran to Omaha at the rate of thirty miles an hour, beating the time of No. 9 by thirteen minutes. Though the car Is capable of going between forty and fifty miles an hour, Mr. McKeen held It Blower because of the fact that the fan which cools the water pipes was not in working order. Realises Ills Dream. "My dream has come true." said Mr. McKeen, after allghtltrg at Omaha. "It has long been my pet Idea that a motor car could be built which co'uld be started at high gear. The main trouble with those which have been built and with automobiles Is that they have Beveral gears which have to bo thrown In and out of mesh. They have to be started on the low gear. Here la a car weighing twenty tons, with a 100-hnrae-power engine, which starts at high gear, starts and stops without a jar and runs with very little vibration. I am Im mensely pleased with it." General Superintendent W. I.. Park, who made the trial trip, was delighted. He said; "It was a pretty run all the way from Valley. The car has proven a success even as great as out hopes, of course Improve ments will be made, but the successful railroad motor car la now a reality." The members of the party on the car were: W. It. McKeen and Mrs. McKeen, W. L. Park. N. F. Harrlman, A. W. White ford, A. II. Fetters, George Thompson, C. H. Smith, Dr. and Mrs. Connors, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Cummlngs, Dr. W. O. Bridges and Arthur Gulou. Other trips will be made from Omaha with the car. It Is expected to send It ulti mately to Portland for service. his breast. He Is at a hospital unconscious. The girl fled and has not yet been arrested. Announcements of the Theaters. Tuesday evening at the Hoyd theater Miss Florence Roberts, who has been n great success as the leader of a stock com pany on the Pacific coast, and who is now being starred under the direction of Mr. Frederick Helnsco, will make her first ap pearance In Omaha. Miss Roberts has been a great success In her tour so far, the critics praising her for her excellent work generally. At Kansas City she won the highest of praise, and is heralded as a stur of the first magnitude. She will begin her engagement here with "7.ma," playing that piece on Tuesday evening and at a matinee on Wednesday. Wednesday evening she will present a play never given in the west, "Marta of the Ixiwiands," a translation from the Spanish used last season by Mrs. Flake and pronounced a literary triumph as well as an excellent piece of work dramatically. The engage ment will close on Thursday night with "Tees of the D'l'rbervilles," another piece that has never been seen in Omaha. Much interest Is felt by local musical people in the coming engagement of Pud erewskl, announced for the Boyd for Thurs day of next week, April 13. The return of this greatest of living pianists is certain to draw a full attendance of the music lovers to ths theater. ( liteUen Thieves Active. Chicken thieves operated In two widely separated parts of the city Saturday night. Mrs. Stegemun, 2024 Vinton street, lost fourteen chickens and T. P. Giblln, 1 KM North Eighteenth street, lost five. The thieves were frightened away at the latter place. Churned with Assanlt. George Krebs of HAS South Thirteenth street, who says he is a I'nlon Pacifio brakeman. was arrested at 11 o'clock last night ui a charge of assault and battery preferred by a man named Morltz Mounn snn.
