AH e.xccss of this amount is eliminated us alcohol by tlio various chan­ nels of e.xcreiion, tho lungs, akin, kidneys, Granting tlie truth of this proposition, tlie disastrous ell'e-ms of alcohol, ovou in such quantity, upon tlie digestive d glandular system, causing at creased action, followed always by de[irO'- 3or,it WMS tho th i n g to b r in g liim up lo u r in g in w ine o r oth e r purgativc.s, had been reduced to death’s door,it WMS tho thing to hgiiin by gently pouring spirits with an improved dietary. Tliis sy^leineamo to an cud witli the advance moat of tho theory o f Dr.Todd; that all pnont in Ediuburgh of what is called the Bmnonian system of medicine, founded I by one John Benson Brown, who strove to ipstiltute a sy,stcm of incdioiue based on the internal administration of stimu hints and narcotics—chiefly wine, or nun and Opium. That he exerted an influence in favor of the stimulating method of treating dis­ ease Is without any doubt. It suggested a bad idea.which ministered in its bad­ ness to one of tho weaknesses of mankind and he himself, wilh all his genius, fell victim to his own method of treatment, dying at fifty two, of apople.vy,after hav­ ing taken a large close of opium, to which he-'u'tis accustomed.

Buliject tlmn thoso of any nthur. man, has this to say about the etfect of alcohoi upon tlio body, taken in moderate quant­ ity. It affects tlio blood, making that Iluid unduly thin or coagulating it, accord­ ing to tlio amount that is carried into tlie circulatory system. It reduces tlie poww* mf the blood corpuscles to absorb oxygeh from the air. It Ohungos tlie natural act­ ion of tlic heart, causing it to beat witii undue rapidity, and incitjiising its action so that it is diivim to the pcrftinnance Ol an excess of work. 25,000 extra strokes in 24 liours was the result produced by alcohol in some instances. On tlic minute blond Ycs-:ols,tliosewliioh form the terminals of the arteries, and in which the vital acts of nutrition and production o f iinimiil heat and force are curried on, alcohol jiroduces a paralyzing effect,—hcace the ilimli of the iaee and hands whicli we observe in tliqse who have partaken freely of wine.
