According to the Quarterly Journal of Inebrie
ty, statistics Indicate that most of the suicides
following inebriety occur among beer .drinkers,
t says that the ultimate effect of lager beer in
many cases is melancholy, with a tendency to
suicide. I', is held that beer baa a peculiar
aycliological action, developing a low grade of
depression in all cases. Hut Is not a man just
as likely to commit suicide under the terrible
epression following a whisky debauch as the
uzzlii.g of loo mucli been? There can hardly
he n doubt of it. In fact, he will generally
reach destruction far morel rapidly by whisky
