DRUNKENNESS AND COFFEE DRINKING.
A traveller has made the observation that coffee drinking people are seldom given to drunkenness. In Brazil, for instance, where coffee is grovyn extensively, and all the inhabitants drink it many times a day, intoxication is rarely seen. The effect is not only noticeable among the natives, but the foreigner who settles there, though posessed of a passion for strong drink, gradually loses his liking for alcohol as he acquires the coffee drinking habit of the Brazilian.
