HOW DRl.VKKNNKSS IS PRODUCED. PRO-DUCED. A sudden mental emotion can send too much blood to the brain, or too irreat mental excitement does the same ihing. It is the essential nature of all wines and spirits to send an increased auinunt of blood to the brain. Tho first effect of taking a glass of wine or stronger form of alcohol is to -end the blood thither faster tbaocom-i tbaocom-i .i ; be'ico it quickens the circulation; i him s i led iuce; it increases the :nv,iy cu che brain, and it works fast-'. fast-'. anil so does the tongue. But as :ie blood goes to the brain faster than -ommon, it returns faster and no special permanent harms results. But supposing a man keeps on drinking, ihe blood is sent to the brain so much faster, in such large quantities, that in order to mako room for it the arteries have to enlarge themselves; they increase in-crease in size; and in doing bo press against the more yielding flaccid veins, which carry the blood i'rom the brain, and thus diminish their size, the result re-sult being, the blood is not only carried to tbe arteries of the brain faster than is natural or healthful, but is prevented from leaving it as fast as usual; hence i double set of causes of death are set in operation, Hence a man may drink enough brandy or other spirits in a few hours or even minutes to bring on a fatal attack of apoplexy; this is literally heimr dead drunk.
