Alcohol and Health.
Alcohol cannot be cl.i-sed .-is fw,i
omitting in this counectioii all refer
ence to the social and moral relation
of this question, we invito atientiou
to its hygienic aspects. The highest
medical and chemical aut ltori: i-x now
inlorsethe conclusion that alcohol is
not a food, but a substance abhorrent
to the human economy; that it rs
not in the slightest degree nourish the
body, or even prevent the waste of
tissue, but that it arrests digestion,
destroys the appetite, lessens muscular
force and vital heat excites the lower
passions, predisposes the drinker to
disease, and retards 'lis recov; ry.
Professor Liebig has shown that
alcohol contains no element which can
be converted into nutriment; and the
experiments of M. M. Lallemand. Per
rin, Durvy, Dr. Edward Smith, and
other physiologists, demonstrate that
alcohol is ejected from the system in
the state in which it is introduced, no
trace of any derivative of alcohol be
ing found in the blood ; tberefote. no
quantity of alcohol can be of benefit
to healthy persons; on the contrary, it
must in (very case exercise a poison-

Miller should foot the bill. His
charges, to far as known, were based
upon mere rumors that even the bu
colic press would not pivc credence
to, and it is wrong for the tax payers
ot the state to foot the bills of a man
who will create such expense just to
try and hunt out something by which
he can further his own ends. He is
a chronic kicker, except when it ia
liable to expose some f his schemes,
which are as questionable or more
so than some of those he is trying
