COFFEE DRINK [NG.
Any food which is stimulating, as coffee, i tea, and alcohol, must necessarily lower the vitality after the flow of energy is over. After the first glow of heat the body is slighly cooler than before taking the stimulant. It is not an unusual thing to find what is called ' coffee heart.' Where persons over-stimulate with coffee, the hoart, after a little time, is apt to lose a beat now and then, going below the normal, while under the effect of the coffee it is a little above the normal. Tea, perhaps, is more injurious than coffee. Both are valuable at times, as they save tho waste of tissues, but both should be used sparingly, as they stimulate and encourage one to labour without actually contributing to the repair of the tissue.
