Dr. Leary declared that: "Drinking is a much less safe art than it was in the days of Daniel Webster. The good old~fashioned DT's, which came when a man ha d consumed large quantities of liquor over a long peri- od, are not to be found nowadays nearly so much as formerly. The present day liquor does not permit the drinker to get as far as the DT stage. It kills him first." Dr. Leary declared it is still com- mon to mistake skull fracture cases for drunkenness.
