In his fright and excitement the horse
broke a '"blood-vessel, and falling be
neath the boy died almost instantly.
There was no attempt ou George's

A QUESTION ANSWERED.
Dot the Con tinned Wa4rmt U
While thi question seems to be one
of easy solution, as it is evidently one
of incalculable interest to mankind, yet
from the fact that diametrically opjo
sito answers are given, it would indi
cate that it is not yet very well under
stood by the masses, at least. To get at
the philosophy of. the question we must
know how tlie life processes are carrieu
on. and then how the stimulants named
affect the life processes when used as
The human organism is made up of
little cells, .so small that a single one
can not le seen by unaided vision; yet
each one of the.-e little bodies has a
life and a mission of its own; and its
development, fulfillment of mission and
death are governed by organic law.
That it may fultill its puqu-e " life its
law of life requires that certain eondi
tions must be supplied to it: and when
ever these conditions are fully provided,
the little c-ll will nev.-r fail to fill iLs
mission pcfctlv and completely.
Hut the question may be aked where
are these little cells made and endowed
with the life principle? Of the
origin of the first living cells we do not
know, but we do know that vegetables
have the power of converting certain
mineral substances :fs car'oonic acid,
ammouia. etc, into these little living
organisms and stowing them away iu
the:r various structures, and then ani
mals and man can partake of these veg
etable products, and by the process of
digo-don and as-imibtion they can
make them over into animal and human
tl'suos. It i- true that the little cells
mado by different families of vegetables
differ in composition, size, et;;., and
that stum, classes of vegetables mat;e
cell that if uJcen into the human body
w:ll destroy its life at once, while other
chwses of "vegetables make just such
cells :n will build up and sustain the
life of man. This difference of cell
fo:-iat'on runs through the human or
ganism also, its various tissues being
nnute up a different kinds of cells, but
they were all first elaborated in the
vegetable. The human organism has
no jrwcr of changing the character of
the little cells that enter into the form
ation of its various tissues, it can only
build such as ar.i suited into their prop
er places. The bony tissue requires
cells rich in phosphate of lime, mag-nc-U
aud potash. The muscles,
eelli of albumen, the brain and
nerves, fatty albuminoid cells, rich
iu phosphate, and M on through the
whob tissue formation: they must all
be made up of ceils i-peeially adapted to
the special purpose, and these cells aro
:,lway; made by vegetable growth, and
if such v.re always properly m-ed and all
other es-ential conditions suppll-d, the
human organism will be built up find
kept in .;od working order, and a large
amount.of reserve iorce will be stored
up in it or future use. lint as cv-tv
functional action of the body consumes
a portion of the organic structure, the
food regularly eaten must make gtod

lo a draft upon the reserve tisstie witch

Xow, the question occurs, how dees
the use of stimulants effect the norical
working of the human organism?
Ali persons arc now agreed that tlie
cflcet of a stimulant is to increase tlie
rate of functional action; and as even"
functional action consumes a portion cf
the tissue producing the action, it is er
iueut the stimulant reduces the powers
of the organism to that extent, and tn
make good the loss the rate of func
tional action wist be reduced after the
effect of the .mulant has parsed off.tiuu
the organism may reg lin what it h:i
thus losL I..'i:ce. we find depression
of the. vital fr.rce following the use of
all stimulants. This depression the go
ahead American citizen can not submit
to. and therefore lhe stimulant must le
frequently repeated to keep up the in
creased ratio of action. To make thh
plain let us again appeal to physiological

lants; and the judicious tise of proper'
foods will sustain the organism at this
rate without any loss of power, if a'
projer amount of rest is taken to cuable
the food to 1h; built up in:. the tissue
destroyed. But now suppose the indi
vidual takes a moderate amount of
stimulant with the same amouut of
food and performs the same amount of
labor, ami what will be the results?
To test this matter Drs. Tarkes and
Wollowitz. two eminent observers, tried
some experiments on healthy young
men bv giving them varying "amounts
of alcohol for six davs in success;. le
ginniug with two ounces the tirt dav
and increasing to eight ounces on the
last On this last day they found the
heart beat 2.r.4$ times more during the
twenty-four hours than was its average
on a simple water beverage, and for the
six days the increased work of tl heart
would have lifted G5.000 pounds one
foot high. Now. as the alcohol did not
add any power to tlie organism, but
only iuereased tie' expend-ture of the
power already in it, it is evident there
was an actual loss of force to that ex
tent, and this must be taken from the
reserve force already stored in the
body. The question then occurs, what
becomes cf the increased force brought
out by tlie alcohol, as it was not used in
any regular work?
Wc Have found that the alcohol could
not bo built into the tissue of the bodv.
for it does not contain the normal cell
formation; nor can it "be burned in the
body for the evolution of heat and
force, for it is the product of a pre
vious combustion:, it is therefore
dead matter which the organism
endeavors to get nd of a soon
as possible, and the increase of the
heart s work is expended for that ob
ject. It is therefore evident that much
vital force was wxted, and to keep
np the crganism to its standard of
vigor, one of two things tnut take
place: either more nutritious food must
be consumed and assimilated, or less o
tbcVfF,s:a must xaied br
aeeful labor. As the digestive orfif

Kwer, if more food be eaten it can aot

nervous system more rapidly than the
former. Utit lieeause it does uot eraze
the mental jowers. but rather sooUu-s
them, the tobacco user vainly imagi.ies
that he is ben'u"ted rather than injuted
by such indulgence. But as tobacco can
not b" built into the organism to add to
its stock of reserve fore nor can it lie
burned in the fody for the evolution of
heat, it must therefore be cast out of
tlie sv.-tem. and this will consume a
considerable amount of reserve- force
already in the organism and which
should be husbanded for the future ex
igencies of life. More than this, it con
tains poisonous principles that directly
lower the life forces, e-pecially in per
sons of nen ous temperameut This
poisonous effect on the nervous system
is so great in some instances as to pro
duce insfintaneous stoppage of the
heart's action and consequent sudden
death. With almost every person tlie
beginning of the habit is attended with
extraordinary sickness and suffering,
and why so mauy young men persist in
its use until the "habit is fully formed is
a mystery it is hnrd to explain. It is
true that after a person has outlived tho
repugnance of the organism to the in
troduction of the poi.-on and continues
in its use. he gets a soothing and ex
hilarating feeling that i very agreeable
to most persons;" and were there no bad
effects to follow, tii is might be soinn
compensation for the sutlering endured
at the beginning. But bad e fleets never
fail to follow" its use. and although
it does not craze the mind, it evidentlt
lowers and debases its action. The to
bacco habitue can not have the extent
of mental power he would have if he
avoided its u-e and lived true to the
laws of his be:ng. This effect is prob

t"hough.my great sudden shock or ex
citement subjects aim to risk of pre
mature death. A perfectly healthy
organism with large amount of re
serve force is capable of resisting al
most all approaches of diseased action,
let it come from what source it may:
while an organism deranged by bad
habits, exhausted of its reserve of vital
force, is ready to fall a prey to any great
disturbance of the life forces. Th.s fact
is strongly verified by the report of
Lieutenant (Jreely, of the ill-fated
Arctic expedition." Of the nineteen of
his men who succumbed to the intense
cold and short rations, all cf them were
tobacco users but one. and he was the
last one that died; while not one of the
six who survived and were rescued
used the weed at all. And this is a
complete verification of scientific teach
ing. The increased work imposed upon
the organism by the use of tobacco, to
gether with its "directly lowering effect,
exhausted the reserve force of the or
ganism of these men, and they had no
capital of vital force to draw on when
tiieir dlv ration
the intenso -nM
ions were cut short, unil
thev were subiect to
ficient reserve force to keep up the
internal fires of life until relief
came. And almost every day there are
-eports of men suddenly dropping out
rf existence from this lack or reserve
force, which should have been carefully
'onscrved for the trying ordeals which
:re liable to come to us all. While it is
true, then, that persons may indulge in
tin itcn rf either or both 3,'cohoiies or
ftibacco all their days, and under favor-
jtjte circumstances live to extreme out
are, yet they arc subject to great risk
J premature death, and their lives
hive not becu brought .ip to that stand
ard of excellence it was possible for
Asm toreaoh, and to which they should
hive aspired- That the use of these
siisstaticcs hinders the growth of the
ujol'cr faculties of man is a generally
efixeded fact; and that such indtil
gtr.ee bv the great mass of the eople
oi his country is the most prolific cause
oftt'ae increasfn: demoralization of our
peimle is equally true. Then let every
yoftjg man in the Nalion. who aspires

has .-omething to do with it- In the

of reason on their side, as the body is

A Candid Wife.
Colonel Witherspoon is probably the
homeliest man in the State of Texas, if
we except Dan M diary, of the Houston
Afjc. On the other hand. Mrs. Wither

Like many other Texans. they visited
the Xew Orleans Exposition. One
morning, while walking down Canal
street, they passed a photographic
establishment, before the door of which
stood a man inviting people to have
their pictures taken. He said to Colonel
;.Just walk in. sir, and you needn't
