    Notes that a 'Medical Correspondent' of The Times has warned of the soporific effects of 'the gold currency' on parliamentary sessions. Considers the correspondent's views on gold currency, sleep, and narcotics to be 'extraordinary', and wonders whether he would 'administer opium or hyoscyamus' in cases of coma or tendency to somnolence.
