Mr. James I. Fellows : Dear Sir : During
the past two years I have givaa your Com
pound Syrup of Hypophospnites a far though
somewhat severe trial in my practice, and am
able to sueak with confidence of Its effects. In
restoring persons suffering from emaciation and
the debility following Diphtheria, it has done
wonders. I constantly recommend its use in all
affections of the throat and lungs. In several
cases considered hopeless, it has given relief,
and the patients are fast recovering ; among
these are Consumptive and old Bronchial sub
ject, whose diseases have resisted the other
modes of treatment. For impaired digestion,
and in fact for debility from any cause, I know
of nothing equal to it. Its direct effect in
strenctbening the nervous system renders it
suitable for the majority of diseases. I am, sir,
yours truly, Wm . S. Howe, M. D.
' Note. It is only the independent, tceH-porf-ed
and unxelfush Physicians who can afford to
prescribe this remedy. Experience has piaved
this. The highest class medical men in every
large city where it is known, recommend it.

'To remember what?" said Mr.
Mcrciith, with a hopeless expression
of infinity on his countenance. Kitty
Meretlith dropped both hands despair
ingly at her sides,
Ch u les!" she excl iinied, 'you don't
nif.-ni that you've for-rottn already?"
' My deaf," said Mr. Meredith, fumb
ling in ihedeptlis of his overcoat pock
eiH for a missing glove, "I may not
have forgotten but 1 don't seem ex

"The oysters!" suggested1 the wife.
' Oli, yea," said Mr. Meredith, "the

zeplivr scarlet wool!"
"And the depot-hack to be in wait

Mr. Meredith slapped his hand on
"She is coming to-day. I declare to
goodness!' ho ejaculated.
"And a dozen Havana oranges for
dessert, and two pounds of white
grajx's, and some of those delicious lit
tle Naples biscuit and maccaroons,
from Saltaselli's oh, and let them
send me up a girl from St. Char's!"
"A girl, you go.-e! For general
housework. Phoebe went home this
morning with a face-ache, and I can't
be left alone with company coming
and all. Mind she's a good cook and
understands waiiiugat table!"
And. Mr. Meredith rushed off to
catch the nine thirty express with a
kaleidoscopic confusion of grapes,
zephyr wool, depot-hacks, oysters, and
servant-maids careering through his
brain, which boded ill for Mrs. Mere
dith's domestic plai)3.
While that lady, clasping both hands
over her forehead, in a sort of tragic
despair, rushed down into the kitchen,
where a very good-looking young man
of some two or three-and-twenty was
on his knees in trout of the range, try
ing to coax a most unwilling tiro to
burn. The good-looking young man
glanced up, with a comical sparkle in
his eyes, and a smudge of soot travers
ing the bridge of his nose.
"Well?" said he.
"Tom," fcicd Mrs. Meredith, hyster
ically, "can you make lobster salad?"
"Like a book!" said Tom.
""I learned in Paris!"
"Good," said Mrs. Meredith. "And
I can make buttermilk biscuit and,
between us, will get up a decent lunch
for the young lady from Chicago! As
lor dinner "
"Well?" again remarked the young
man with the soot-besmudged nose.
"Providence must provide!" sighed
"There'san old chintz-colored rooster
in the barnyard," said Tom, hopeful
ly. "If I could once catch him, I'd
have a chicken stew!"
"Tom," said Mrs. Meredith, "did
you ever make a chicken stew? '
"Tlien you don't know what you're
talking about," said the lady, with
"Yes, I do, too," maintained the
amateur Soyer. "Onions, potatoes.

Microscopic examination has shown
two things clearly with reference to
the action of alcohol n the human
system. 1. Its effect on the blood.
Dr. Harriman in a aeries of ex
periments in Boston showed that
alchol produced these among oth
er essential changes in red blood
corpuscles. It acts specifically en the
coloring matter, making it colorless.
It distorts and in some cases wholly
breaks up ho red corpuscles and pro
duces a parasite vegetation in the fluid
of the blood and hydro-carbon sub
stances can readily be detected by the
microscope. In throwing upon a screen
magnified corpuscles, both of healthy
blood and that which had been sub
jected to action of alcohol, the differ
ence was marked and striking. The
effect of the alcohol, was thus shown
to be destructive of the very life cur
rents of the body and, of course, hav
ing a deteriorating effect upon the
But as the vigor and tone of the
bruin is largely dependent on the puri
ty of the blood with which it is sup
plied, it is manifest that the effect of
alcohol would be deleterious to the
brain and to all mental action in pre
cise ratio to the quantity taken into
the system. Recent investigations
have mado it clear not only that alco
hol is bad for the brain, but that it is
specifically on the brain that it does
its most harmful work. It is some
times said of the drinker, the liquor
has gone to his brain. That is precise
ly where all liquor goes, not as a sani
tary or tonic agent, but as a steadily
and scientifically destructive agent.
Rev. Joseph Cook, in a recent lecture,
traces very cleverly the direct effect
of alcohol on thebraiu. He says: "As
all chemists admit, tho local affinity
of alcohol is for the brain." This is
in entire accord with the highest med
ical authority. Dr. Breckwill quotes
Forbes Wiuslow as having testified be
for a committee of Parliament, that
the liquid dipped from the brain of an
habitual inebriate can be burned. Dr.
Kirk mentions a case in which "the
bui liquid of a man who died in in
toxication smelt very stiongly of whis
key, and when some of it was taken in
a spoon and a candle put beneath it,
the flame burned with a lambent blue
Alcohol then acts directly and dis
tructively on the brain. That means
it kills the man in the upper ranges of
It may work slowly, wel-lnigh im
perceptibly in its hardening and dead
ening effect, bat it surely goes to the
brain of all who use it, it surely weak
ens that brain, and if taken in sufficient
quantity will as certainly destroy Rea
son and Conscience, as it will destroy
the body. Indeed, it has been shown
that it acts first on the reason and
conscience and afterwards on the body.
It benumbs and confuses the drink
er's brain, before it makes him stagger,
or puts him to sleep. He is garrulous
in a partially dethroned mind, before
he falls into tho gutter.
There is a corollary to this scientific
fact. Of course these experiments are
made on the brain3 of inebriates. But
the logic'of them goes farther back,
and infallibly points out the peril of
moderate drinking. If alcohol goes to
the brain te work destructivly,it will
do its work in tho exact ratio of the
amount of it. Proof alcohol will work
faster than that which is diluted, dis
tilled liquor faster than fermented;
but each will de its utmost to break
down the man. Brandy will skoot the
drinker mos.t swiftly to tho grave.
Bat wine will slowly and scientifical
ly, according to the amount of alcohol
it contains, work toward the same re
sult. If the conclusions of these doctors
are correctly drawn, they overturn to
tally and forever the idea advanced by
moderate drinkers, that wine and beer
are wholesome, but whiskey is ruin
ous. The difference is only one of de
gree. A further argument for total ab
stinence is herein suggested by the fact
that the tasto for diluted alcohol is tho
precursor of a taste for purer alcohol.
The moderate drinker uses wine for
its alcohol. It is the alcohol effect he
prizes. It will lead him on to seek
more of it. But even should this not
be the case, out of kis wine be can in
the course of years distil alcohol
enough in hi' brain to weaken intel
lectual action and deaden moral sen
sibility. Thus science points the way
of the bible when it declares the un
wisdom of the man who allows cither
wine or strong drink, either fermented
or distilled liquors to deceive him.

Tke Comic Side of Intemperance
Life has it3 sunny side, its ehady
side, its money side, and its funny side.
The teruperanco idea has become aa
institution, and presents various phas
es, one of which is seen from its com
ic side. . When the drunkard on his
back feels upward for tho ground,
when he goes to the pump to light his
pipe, when he attempts to walk on both
sides of the street at the same time,
when he endeavors to keep h:s spirits
up by pouring spirits down, when he
refuses to drink water because it has
a flavor of sinners since the flood, when
be counts the strokes of the fire bell
and swears it is fourteen o'clock, we
are forced 4o laugh, although Consci
ence utters her protest, and, as Princo
John would say. it seems "like whist
ling at a funeral."
The tone of voice, the speech, the
gait, the attitudes of the toper, are ir
resistably ludicrous. lie is ready to
fight or to shout,- and sometimes the
hidden secrets of sobriety leak out of
that fissure between his chin arid nose,
so that we often hear men exclaim:
In vino Veritas which means, "when
the wine is in, the truth comes out."
The drunkard is often a jolly fellow
and has a good share of mother wit,
and that makes him a magnet of at
traction in the bar-room. Gough used
to sing a song well, and tell a good sto
ry, and he was one of the most i.opu-
lar drinkers of his "ay. Liquor-venders
could well afford to furnish such
customers with "free drinks." They
are the landlord's pets; they draw full
houses, and givo an air of jollity and
happiness to the tralllc.
"Why," said a physician to his in
temperate neighbor, "why don't you
take a regular quantity of rum every
day, set a regular stake that you will
go so far and no farther?" "I do," re
plied pimple-face, "but I set it down
so far.'I get drunk before I reach it.'
We see the bead on the whisky wit of
Sometimes the laugh comes in at
the expense of the drunkard. His odd
reply to a straight-forward question,
his strange comments on the words
and actions of others, his awkward re
sponse to something said or done, may
make him the laughing slock of the
whole community. George Ilaydock,
the ex-wood sawyer aud ex-drunkard,
was iu the habit of saying things as
sharp as the teeth of his saw. He was
making a temperance speech one Sun
day on the dock, when one of his. bib
ulous auditors interrupted him.
"Shut up !" said George.
"What for?" inquired the toper.
"Because you are violating the law."
"How is that?"
"It is unlawful to open a grog-hole
on the Sabbath."
How can we account for the feeling
of mirth which follows the idiotic per
formances of drunken men and wom
en? Is it not partially due to the fact
that we look for dignity, discretion
and common sense in a man ; but when
we find the opposites of these attrib
utes, we are jostled out of the rut of
propriety by the suddenness of the con
trast, and are forced to laugh,' "like
tip9y joy that reels with tossing head?"
We see a human being, endowed by
his Creator with reason, judgment,
taste, imagination and conscience, vi
olating the laws of his nature, cloud
ing his intellect, and debilitating his
body. He was created a little lower
than the angels, and he sinks a good
deal lower than the brutes. He was
mado to stand erect, with his face to
wards the stars; but he cannot stand
at all, and his face is in the dust. He
was made eloquent of speech; but his
tongue fails to perform its functions
aright, and staggers under the load up
on his brain.

gans of the head were the grand jury
to render verdicts in all questions com
ing up before the throne of his judg
ment; but he shows less wisdom than
the mere animal, whose instincts leach
it to turn from alcohol.
We laugh, in spite of the protests of
taste, of humanity, of conscience, wo
laugh, with tears in our eyes, at the
comic side of drunkenness. We look
at the outside; we listen to the gibber
ish of the drunkard, forgetting his re
sponsibility, his awful fate, tho dread
ful evils which creep out of the cup he
puts te his lips, and we laugh until
we are swept from the moorings of
our own good sense of propriety.
