How Drunkards are Treated, in Norway and Sweden.

It is not generally known (says a London correspondent) that a habitual drunkard in Norway and Sweden renders himself liable to imprisonment for his love of strong drink, and that during his incarceration he is required to submit to a plan of treatment for the cure of his failing which is said to produce marvellous results. This plan consists in making the delinquent subsist entirely on bread and wine. The bread is steeped in a bowl of wine for an hour or more before the meal is served. The first day the habitual toper takes his food in this shape without repugnance ; the second,,he,fmds it less agreeable to his palate; finally, he positively loathes tlie\ sight of it. Experience shows that" a period of from eight to ten days of this regimen is generally more than sufficient to make a man evince the greatest aversion to anything in the shape of wine, and I am told that many men after their incarceration become total abstainers. \
