ANOTHER DEADLY HABIT
From tlie N. Y. "TrllKine.
A dangerous method of asfug itiorphine
to produce pleasurable sensations is be
lieved by physiciaes in this city to be a
growing vice. Morphiue piie of the
principle constituents of opinni, and has
the efM'ectqf relieving paiu and preventing
sleeplessness. It has been found, how
ever, that frequent internal doses, of the
drug had an injurious effect on the intes
tinal canal and gradually underlined the
system. Of late years physichlu have
nearly a, bant oued the practice of admin
istering morphine by internal doses, and
have adopted, instead, the use of a needle
pointed syringe, by. which smalt doses of
the ilrngg are injected under thp skin.
The effect of the drug administered ki this
way is much quicker and smaller doses
are required. Tito use of the morphia bjit
inge was confined to niieal experts for
a time, as it was believed to be 'attended
with unusual dangers in unskillful hands.
Jt has bccoiue a oratico with sbiue phy
sicians, however, fo tcac their; patients
bow tq administer merphianjectious, and
ft is not surprising that many pfrsons
who have exerinced , the delightful ef
fects of the drug iu time ef sickuess,
Khould use the instrument to bauisk im
aginary suffering, ijeverl proinjneijt
physicians of thia cjty were visited by a
Tribune reporter recently, and their state?
inents showed that the vicious habit is
spreading to an alarmiug extent.
A strong opposition to tlje, frequent use
of the njorphia syringe Ayas expressed by
I)r. Jared Linsly. '.'It is aq instrument
of death," he said, in the hands of auy
person except a skillful and cautious phy
sician. " If the use of the instrument is
ever justified, it is in cases wheje iinnn
diate relief must be given to excruciating
pain. Whenever morphine can! be given
iu internal doses, I believe it should1 be
administered iu that way. A dpse of the
drug injected under the skin is taken; up
by the blood, carried to the heart and dist
seininated through the system with great
rapidity. The effect on the vital organs.
is all the more hurtful because of it sud
denness, aud because the imparities of
the drug are conveyed directly iqto the
blood. It is not surprisiqj that iqany
deaths have resulted directly from the
mode of adninisteriqg auaUhetics, It is, a
crime for a physician to teach the use of
such an instrument to his patents. The
practice is sending .hundrei of persons to
the inebriate asylum aql Ailing thpq
sands of homes with misery."
; A smile costs the giver nothing, yet it
is beyond price to tho errisig and repent
ant, the sad and cheerless, the lost and
forsaken. - It disarms malice, I subdues
