Dipsomania, or Thirst Madness.
The periodical desire for strong drink
which sometimes besets individuals,
otherwise moral and exemplary, is a
species ot paroxysmal mania beyond
the control of the patient. It is quite
certain that there are thousands oi
cases of remittent drunkenness,
which present the specific symptoms
of disease. The periodical drunkard
is not an habitual dram drinker. But
at particular times he appears to be
attacked by a species of thirst-madness
which deprives him of the power of
volition and hurries him into the most
terrible excesses. During the interval
between the paroxysms he may be a
perfectly sober man.
For many weeks, or even months,
he may have steadily refused to taste
a drop of liquor; may, indeed, have
felt no inclination for it, but on the
contrary have regarded it with disgust
And yet, when the fit comes on, the
raging thirst for alcohol utterly paraly
zes his concience and his will. A man
in this condition is a monomania.:
and shottl^ be treated as such. If put
under proper restraint at the com
mencement of this Juror, the dipsoma
niac, in nine cases out of ten, might
be tided over hisdifficulty in the course
of a week, and a perseverance in this
couse at the recurrence of the halluci
nation would probably eventuate tn a
complete cure. It is not easy to per
suade the world that all drunkenness
is not voluntary. The law does not
recognize dipsomania. It treats all
inebriates alike. This seems to be
unjust, though it is hard to say where
to draw the line between free will ex
cess, and that which proceeds from an
uncontrollable mania - —Mumford’s
The system of endorsing is all
wrong, and should be utterly abolished.
It has been the financial ruin of more
men than, perhaps, all other causes
Bookkeeping, a journal devoted to
merchants, clerks and business men,
advises our young men especially to
study the matter in all its bearings,
and adopt some settled policy to gov
ern their conduct, so as to be ready
to answer the man who asks them to
sign his note. What responsibility
does one assume when be endorses a
note? Simply this: He is held for
the payment of the amou'.t in full,
principal and interest, if the maker of
the note, through misfortune, misman
agement or rascality, fails to pay it.
Notice, the endorser assumes all the
responsibility, with no voice in the
management of the business and no
share in the profits of the transaction,
if it proves profitable; but with a cer
tainty of loss, il for any of the reasons,
stated, the principal fails to pay the
Monarch of all He Surveys.
The Writer, a Boston publication
for literary workers, in the course of
an ably written article on the country
newspaper and its editor, has the fol
lowing regarding the successful country
“public opinion moulder:”
“There is no department of newspa
per work in which there is so great
and immediate and satisfactory a re
ward as in that of the successful coun
try editor, provided also he is owner of
his paper. Here he can find scope
for just as much literary finish and just
as much business ability as he cares
or is able, to exercise. For his good
work he gets the credit. He is as big
politically as he cares to be. He need
not be the victim of the cord-wood
and prize-pumpkin subscriber unless
he desires to be. Life is what he
makes it. He can control circum
stances in a way that would never be
possible to him if he were the victim
of the whims of some arbitrary city
editor, who may treat his men as mere
pieces of machinery, that must be sac
rificed, if need be, for the good of the

This dramatic speech broke him up badly;

Consumption fastens its hold upon its victims
while they are unconscious of its approach.
The “Golden Medical Discovery” has cured
thousands of cases of this most fatal of mala
