Effects of the Drug on the Styrlan*, Who Make It. "Bating of arsenic Is common In Styrla," said Alois E. Steln/.lorl ot Viennii, a muiutfncturor of choivtlcalH and drugs. "The Styrlnt\» stiy tbiit arsenic makes one plump and comely ami gives one strength for great exertions, Huen as running or mountain clirnhing. Styrla, which IB In Austria, gives the world vast quantities of .arsenic. The manufacture of this drug Is indeed the main Btyrlan Industry. They who make arsenic cat It, as a rule, for they say that only the arsenic eater can withstand the arsenic fumes. Those makers and ealorf, of the drug are comely. They have a clear color and look-much younger than they arc. "The foreman in a certain factory told mo that In his hoyhood, when he UrKt came to that plant, he was ad- vlsi'd to Ix'giu to cat arsenic lent his health suffer from the fumes. He did licgln, and his lirst two or throe small doses gave him a sharp pain, like a burn, In the stomach, and this pain was followed hy tremendous hunger and a violent dlsagrccahle excllement. But as his doses Increased In frequency and size their effect hccarno pleasant. There was no longer pain or excitement. On the contrary, there were a ravenous appotUc and a mood of Joyous acllvlty wherein the youth could do three men's work. "This chap l>y the time he go) lo be thirty was taking four grains of arsenic n day. He looked at thirty, with his clear pink and wldte color, no more than I vventy-three. He was as robust as a blacksmith. Hut lie said lie would die at forty-five or so, that being tin. age at which all the Styrlan arsenic eateru die."—Washington Herald.
