' It cannot bo denied that illnesses attributed to excessive mental labour are ofton duo to other causes of a less elevated kind-such as indigestion produced by want of exercise, or neglect of simple rules as to diet; but, 011. the other hand,'deaths irom overwork are by 110. means unknown in the prosent- day among thoso engaged in physical labour. A melancholy case of this description formed the' Bubject of a recent coroner's inquest at Sheffield. The deceased was a striker at somo steel works. "Striking" is an occupation that involves a great strain on the physical powers of thoso engaged in it, and may bo described in every senso of term as " hard labour." It being necessary to get out an important order at tho works, the men were told one day last week that they must work all. night. Tlio deceased con...
