Facts for Beer Drinkers
The worst results from accidents in
the Loudon hospitals ate said to be to
draym-n. Though thvy are apparently
models of he. ill h and st re.-.gth.yei if one
of iht-in receives an injury, it is nearly
always necessary to amputate in order
to give him the most distant chance
of life. The draymen have the unlimi
ted privilege of the brewery ceiiar.
Sir As ley Cooper xvas once called to a
dray man, xvho xvas a powerful, fresh
colored, beaitiiy-lookiug nun, and had
suffered an injury in his linger, from a
splinter of a stave. The wound, though
trilling, suppuruled. He opened tin
small abscess with his lancet. lie
found, on retiring, he had left his
lancet. Returning f..r it he found
the man in a dying condition. The
man died in a slmr; time. Dr. Gordon
savs: " The moment beer-drinkers are
attacked Wth acute diseases, I hey aie
not able to bear depletion, and die."
Dr. Edxvards says of beer-drinkers:
"Tin ir diseases are alxvays of a dan
gerous character, and, in c is J of acci
dent, they can never undergo even the
most triiling opera. ion with the secttr
i y of the temperate. They almost in
variably die ineler it." Dr. Buchanan
savs: "Malt liqu us render the blood
izy and unfit for circulation; henre,
proceeds obstruction and inflammation
of the lungs. There are fexv great
beer-drinkers xvho are not phthisical,
brought on by tfie glutinous and indi
gestible nature of aie and porter. These
liquors iutlimo the blo!l, and tear
the tender vessels of the lungs to
pieces." Dr. Maxson says: "Intoxica
ting drinks, whether taken in the
form of fermented or distilled liquors,
are very frequent predisposing causes
of disease. The hospitals of Nexv
Yorkshow an equally unfavorable re
cord of intemperance, and private
practitioners every x hero have the

One of those spells came over us,
xvheu xve read Grant's attack on Gen.
Sherman.. Very few men xvho claim

praise of Grant, as the great general
of the w a 1 ; xvhili he, in our humble
opinion is far Grant's superior in eve
rything but bigoted bulldogism. "I
will fight it out on this line if it takes
me all summer." Compare this, the
