Remarks on Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 February 1898

Remarks on .Drunkenness-.: ^Professor A. Crum Brown, In his . re cent lecture on the- eyesight , and the movements of the head, delivered at the ■ University, Museum, Oxford, made some interesting : remarks on drunkenness.; Alcohol makes all the reflex actions of .the body, sluggish, so that the nerves and senses perform their automatic or "office" work, as the professor calls It, less promptly - than usual. The con scious " X" or " Ego" of the person may not notice anything wrong, but even , a .moderate dose of alcohol may delay the ^transmission of a nerve .signal • to the eyeball, so much so as "to affect the /balance of his head, and make the world outside appear to whirl round. A per. ffcctly sober man sees the world go round - If he wags his head, because the ofllce". work falis him, but a little alcohol makes it -fall 'still more rapidly. Even In ex treme Intoxication a man - may see the world steadily if he:' can keep himself steady, but if'he allows his head to movd he reel...

The Export of Wheat. We are glad to learn from our Syd ney correspondence that a move has been made to send to London a part of the surplus of wheat- with which the last harvest presented the colony. The Australian Mortgage, Land, and finance Co., we understand, are shipping 500 tons, or nearly 20,000 bushels, and if other large holders would club together to adopt a similar policy, the alleged "sur plus" would soon be a thing of the past. To growers and holders of the grain this is a matter of great moment. As long as it can he main tained that there is an exportable Burplus within the colony, buyers will use, and do use, the "assertion to ' beat down prices to a point which deprives the producer of his fair profit.

The trustees of the Denman recre ation park, at their meeting on Satur day last at the Royal Hotel, Denman, granted the sum of £6 to make a tennis court, but I think it will require a further sum to make it anything like a court at all.
