Drunkenness owns many a cause, and calls for many a cure. Many things are to be done, and many men are needed to do them. The principle of division of labor is fully recognised in this matter. One of the most obvious causes of drunkenness consists in the strange drinking customs of the people. Strong drink not only forms a customary part of their ordinary diet, but whenever any peculiar occasion emerges be it of grief or sorrow, business or pleasure an additional amount of strong drink must forthwith be consumed, by all and sundry, if the entertainer would escape censure or contempt. Sensible men have come to see that if drunkenness is to be stayed in its fearful sweep, carrying death and devastation in its track, these drinking customs must be greatly reformed: and means have accordingly been adopted to enlighten the public mind on the sad mixture of folly and evil which characterizes them. Good work has been done in this direction. Able authors have expounded the case plainly and powerfully: and reference may be specially made to The Physiology of Temperance and Total A bstinence, by Dr. Carpenter, and The Pathology of Drunkenness, by Dr. Charles Wilson. Both of these treatises are excellent: telling and trustworthy.
