An Opiate-Drinking Woman.

--There is a woman in Bernardston, Mass., over fifty years old, who drinks one quart of laudanum and two quarts of other per week, and has been in the habit of using these stimulants to this extent for twenty years. Sometimes she takes them separately, and sometimes mixed. She is dependent on the town for support, and the druggist's bill for the above article is generally paid by the town. She complains of nervousness.
