ABSTRACT

Member of the American Association for the Study and Cure of Inebriety, of the Ninth International Medical Congress, of the American Medical Association, Dutchess County Medical Association.

He who has proven himself an attentive observer of the transactions of man for the past twenty-five years, does not hesitate to pronounce the last quarter of the transpired portion of the nineteenth century the most remarkable in the history of man. The philosopher, the scholar and the philanthropist, will be ready to declare that at no period, in all former times, have the intellectual energies of our race made so momentous discoveries, or put forth such exalted plans of benevolence for the benefit of mankind. The mighty achievements in the mechanical world have given new impetus to old powers and created new ones of vast results, profitable to us as a nation and as individuals.
