The  other "two  v members of Lord Bruno's little band  appeared to have vanished into   thin  air.

I  believe a wave of fanaticism has  swept over Africa from the region of  the Nile and the Kingdom of Dahomey down to the very borders of Matabele land.  "At any rate wc found the blacks  aggressive all through our trip. At  times I actually had reason to sus-'  pect that these tribes of interior Africa' were really united in some ancient league, and recognized in the  \vhite man the coming doom of their  race, for at , some1' future date, as  purely as the world continues to exist, that restless, colonizing Anglo-  Saxon race is bound to dominate Africa even as it does North America,  Australia and many other quarters of  bi a globe.'      ,  "Well, we were in a position to  offer either the olive branch or war  to the knife, and when the aggressive  tactics of the blacks forced us to the  latter condition, you can believe we  hit hard.  "Still, the continual dripping of  water will wear away a stone, and  this constant sj stem of warfare began   to  tell upon  our   organization.  "We lost some men in battle, others  deserted, stealing what tho could, and  by degrees, our condition began to  grow desperate. *-  "I am not made of putty, however,  and never once thought of relinquishing rny plains, for the idea of possessing this argosy had become the one  scheme''of my life���������you know a man  may find himself so wrapped up in a  certain matter that he fairly dreams  of it.

It would only be carrying  out the same idea as the true Mussulman who says his prayers five  times a day with his face always  turned toward the sacred city of  Mecca.  "Then I conceived another notion  ���������possibly in some niche along the  face of the cliff the hideous voodoo  idol they worshipped had a resting  place.  "Eacrorly I sought to discover it,  but although my eyes alighted upon  a little platform or ledge half-way  up, where the silvery moonbeams  phiyed in undisturbed splendor, I  could discover no trace of an idol or  figure of auy sort.  "Again I turned my attention upon,  the great mass of superstition ridden,  blacks groveling upon the plain.

Their engagement had never been  announced, but it had been an understood  thing between their families for several  years. From a -social standpoint it was  an excellent match, but Madison had  often found himself wishing that Helene  was���������well, "different." He could not exactly define what he meant. "Since, that  idiot Morris told her she looked . like  Eames she has been colder than ever," he  said to himself savagely.

He remembered how he broke away from them as  soon as she .opened those brown eyes,  and many times since he had groaned inwardly  at his  idiotic remark when she  "Do you live there, Miss Dolly?"    _  "Miss Seymour," she put in.  "'Mot  Dorothy Seymour, Harvey's sister?" he cried.  "Yes," she said.   "Why not?"  "Why, he used to blow about you until we were all crazy to see you, and then  you   never did   show   up  at  commencement or anything,  and  we decided you  were a myth."  "There!"  she  exclaimed.     "That- explains it."  ��������� "What?" -    ���������  "Why. your face beinjr so familiar.  You are the one with the banjo sitting  in the window seat of Harvey's room  at college. He has a picture at home of  his den with half a dozen of the boys  in it."  "Oh, I remember that picture! Well,  isn't it all strange? Miss Seymour, do  jou believe in fate?"  "What do you call fate?"  "Well, sometimes I think that you are  destined to do a certain thing or meet a  certain person, and fate acts as a sort  of a conductor, you know." Here he  stopped, rather confusedly. He had just  thought of Helene lor the first time.  "Possibly," said Miss Seymour. "Where  do you think fate is taking you now?"  He gave himself-an inward shake.  "I am goiug to Rose Hill," he said.  "Oh,   do  you   know   people  there?     I  spent a few days last week at Rose Hill..

His companions will  snap the thread of talk away'from him,  unconscious of any incivility���������just from  sheer nervous inability to listen to the  end. Having "caught on" to tbe drift of  an idea, they can no more listen placidly  to its development than they can wait  until a play is over or a cable car stopped  to make their exit.���������Eliot Gregory in  Harper's Bazar.

GRANT ?  A '4*  ���������<>4>.���������.++*���������+4������������������+<&������������������������������������������������������<>+���������������������������++"������������������+&  ' To set the true flavor of war wo must  look to those who have participated in  war. Tho following story smacks of the  trials of a' southern family and the hard-  ehips and injustice to which it was sub-'  jocted.        -   ;  "Hurry, hurry!" criedr- the captain.  "Soon the fight will begin, and if we will  have to ride down the lines,, it will be 'no  ' joke."  So away they went down the lines, two  mUes to Iiesaca, across the pontoon bridge  over the river there, where the Federals  open fire,on them; then, on to Calhoun,  where a liot cavalry fight wasfgoing on.  ;' After two days spent .there , anxiously  ���������waiting for Johnston to drive back the  enemy and enable them to go home, and  finding that he was retreating and that it  ��������� was impossible for tbem to return through  the lines they joined tho great army of  refugees and at last found ��������� safety 'in that'  "general asylurii, southwest Georgia.  - Their retreat was sorrowful. Their return was comical:*.  The war was over, and. the southerners  ��������� stood a nation of paupers.    Not one cent  did any one have.    Dazed they stood and  gazed.at their heaps of Confederate mon-  - ey, some of it so new and crisp that it  seemed "-"to mock'them with, their blasted  hopes.   ' ,       ���������    '  '"    Tlie first-thought of the refugees was  "how to get home. Their friends, who had  hospitably entertained them, from'being  wealthy  planters  were now ruined   and  .had .not bread for themselves, as.their  negroes  became demoralized   and   would  "not work:. But with no money and  wretched transportation who could travel?  ' " In the history of all distressed people  there is found a Moses who rises up to deliver them. So now in the history of the  G.'s the eldest daughter played the part  of Moses and led them home.  .*��������� After they , had become refugees she  had for a while acted as matron in a hospital Jn Macon and as such ranked as a  * Confederate officer. So now,* on this  ground, she*-Jpplied to the Federal post  commandant at Bainbridge for transpor-  ��������� tation to Macon. The officer honored the  demand and furnished it. and she made  tho best of her way there to interview  General Croxton, post commandant at  that point.  ���������"Be sure," said a polite friend, "that  you put on your best clothes so as to impress the Yankees. Nothing like looking  well of?."  "I intend to." said she. And this is how  she was dressed:  Sho wore what to Confederate eyes  seemed .a black silk dress., True, it had  once been agre,en striped one, but having  been dipped in a weak , solution of logwood the stripes only vaguely betrayed  themselves. The garment was gayly  trimmed with stripes of palmetto braid,  plaited by the wearer's own industrious  fingers. She had also manufactured the  gloves which covered the said fingers.  Then her head was adorned with a  -���������wonderful bonnet. It was a sort of  phenis in the way in which it rose from  its ruins, having been made over several  times into divers shapes, according as rumors of fashions reached its owner. For  even in the shut in Confederacy the women, in the midst of the multifarious duties  devolving on them, strove to follow tho  fashions as they vaguely heard they were  worn in the outside, world.  It proved afterward they were misinformed, for while they were painfully  building up three story bonnets, with but  scanty material to build with, looking  like "Pelion on Ossa piled," the outside  world wore little pancakes on their heads.  Strong in' the rectitude of her apparel, Miss G. went forth to "impress"  General Croxton. How he was impressed, whether with amusement, wonder  or admiration, will never be known, as  he was too gentlemanly to show any  emotion.  - Escorted by a boy cousin, Miss G.  sought the general's presence. Her  brother declined accompanying her.   _  "It will never do for a big, ablebodied  fellow like me to go," said he, "aud besides women can do more with the  Yanks than men." ���������; . ;  Having thus eased his conscience,;, he  left her to face the foe, which she did  with great equanimity, and made her  claim for her own transportation, as a  Confederate officer and for her father's  family on the plea that the Federal gov-,  ernment, having forced them from their  home at the point of the bayonet, so to  say, it was its business to take them  back.  "Before Confederate officers obtain  transportation they surrender," said tbe  general, smiling. "Have you surrendered?"  This was a horrid speech, for the southern women prided themselves on never  surrendering.  "I decline to answer that," cried she indignantly.  He laughed and after bantering her a  little, struck by the novelty of-both applications, he made out the transportation  papers for them all and gave them to her.  And so in Septembe'r the scattered family'rendezvoused at Macon and started on  their trip home. The government did not  furnish very stylish transportation. Tbey  were given a freight box. car,"into which  they packed themselves and a scanty  supply of household goods, for news  reached them through the lines that their  house had been.sacked and its contents  scattered to the four winds.  They reached Atlanta the next morning  and were switched off on a side .track to  be raken in charge by the officials of the  Western and Atlantic railroad, and young  G. went out to interview these parties.  They now made the acquaintance of what  was afterward known as the "carpetbag"  gentry  The town of" Atlanta was then hardly  - more than a sort of camp, inhabited by a  few of the old citizens, a Yankee garrison and a lot of, what might be called miscellaneous adventurers.  The post commandant was an' old  Dutchman of autocratic proclivities./Indeed, had he been an eastern pasha under  the viceroy of Egypt he could not have  had a keener eye 'to exacting "backsheesh." At this-time a few enterprising  /-urties had established little shops that  went by the name of "sheebangs," tho  contents of which could almost be stored  away in a drummer's trunk, so tiny were  they. But the Dutch pasha kept an eye  upon them and constantly levied tribute.  Seeing one in a rather flourishing condition, ho demanded quite" a sum of "backsheesh." The owner plucked up his courage and refused to pay it. -   '  "Den," cried the Dutch pasha, "I shut  up dis sheebang!" * _    ,  , And it accordingly was shut.  Another "source of profit was to levy a,  tax oh, every carload of< refugees that  passed through the town. If they refused, they were detained" until they paid  it, which they finally* did rather' than be  turned out of the car and left in Atlanta minus funds arid shelter.  Young G. now had ,,the pleasure of  interviewing these ' cormorants. After  vainly refusing, remonstrating and entreating he, by the advice of friendly'  citizens, paid 'the tax, some $20,_ but it  seemed .an enormous sum to /the 'ruined'  refugees. ;    ', ,  In his absence one of the robber crew  came down to the car to inspect the  family and their belongings and then  calmly demanded his tribute. Mr.. G.  was a fiery old man, and he scornfully  refused to pay it. A hot altercation ensued. It must be allowed that the Yankee, a' tall, raw boned man, preserved  his equanimity, which .only served to exasperate the other.  "I'll pay you nothing!" cried the old  man. "I have General Croxton's transportation papers that take me heme, and,  not a cent will I pay you."  1 "Then you don't leave here," said the  other coolly.       - ',  "You have no right to demand money,  from me over'your .superior officer's orders.   Just show'me your authority,-sir."  "It is the rule here for allerefugees to  pay," said" the. man calmly, "and you  must." ' ' ���������  "The rule?  Who gave you any right to*  make a rule?   I'll bet you can't show me"  any "proof of  your  authority  for so doing."  "I don't bet," said the righteous thief,  with an indescribable drawl. /'I havo  conscientious scruples about it*"'  "You!" cried the old man, now badgered into a fury. "You have conscientious  scruples! You! God bless my soul!  You!" He dropped back in his chair  speechless with,auger.  Having thus spiked his enemy's"guns,  the blackmailer, after again calmly assuring him that he should not leave  without pay, took himself off.  Young G. soon after appeared and  stated that he had paid the tax, as they  could not stay over in Atlanta and camp  by the railroad track, and it was not  worth while resisting when resistance"  was useless.  They soon after started on their journey over the roughest road on earth, for  it had been torn up many times'by the  contending armies, and a legend was in  circulation that when-the iron rails had  been so twisted as to be unfit for use saplings had been improvised into rails and  nailed to'the cross ties* so as to take a  train over the gaps. The road was so  rough that the story did not seem incredible.  Marietta, their _ next stopping place,  seemed deserted. The only people' they  saw were a lot of men busy with a machine straightening railroad rails, so as to  use them again. And they had certainly  been twisted into the most wonderful  shapes in the world.  The travelers' route lay now through a  dreary country and endless scenes of desolation." They failed to recognize it. lt  was the "Shermanizod district." and only  chimneys and heaps of ruins marked tho  sites of what had been smiling villages.  At last they reached Kesaca and then  home. It had been, in army parlance,  "sacked and gutted." Every window was  gone. A soldier, it was said, had tried his  prowess with pickax to see if he could,  destroy a window at a single blow. He  succeeded, the gaping holes causing the  house to look like a blind thing.  But the roof was there to shelter them,  and it belonged to them, and that was a  great thing. So they set to work to make  themselves comfortable.  Before a great while they had in canvas window glass, which, if it kept out  most of the light, also kept out most of  the wind. ''���������'-.  Reminders of the battle were scattered  about. The lock of the front door having been broken, it was kept closed by the  aid of a weight made out bf half a torpedo with which General Wheeler had  blown up the railroad trade near their  house. Old Parrott shells were used to  prop open the windows, and the fire was  stirred with a bayonet, and empty cartridge boxes were used as troughs to feed  the cows in, so that there was a warlike  flavor about things.  But in a year's time the returned refugees had got so to rights that there was  little to tell that the house had been in  the center of the battlefield-and been a  hotly contested spot���������only the grave' of a  Confederate, soldier, who slept peacefully  in the flower garden, where the roses  waved above his head and scattered their  perfumed petals over his grave.���������Atlanta  Constitution.  HORSES  AND  THEIR   DRIVERS.  Jttst  How  111e  Animals   Know  What  io Do Is a Wonder.  The man who had never handled horses  sat down beside me in front of the store  and began to ask questions.  "These   horses   are, most    interesting  creatures,   and   you   drive   them   everywhere, they say." *  \  "Oh, yes, almost anywhere!"  ,    "Is it hard to control them?"  "No, quite. 1 easy if you understand  them."  "How do' you force them to do what  5011 want?"    ' 1  .        "      ~"~  "Oh, you don't have to force them;  just let> them know what you want!"  "Indeed! How do you'' communicate  your wants to them?"   ���������  , ���������'  "By the use of reins' attached to. a bit  in their mouths and ' by words which'  they get to understand, such as a cluck  or a chirrup to start and the word 'whoa'  to stop, the word 'back' to go backward.'  etc."  Just at this point a man came slashing  up  in  front of  the  store  with a  horse  and wagon and, calling "Back!" jumped  ' out, and the horse stopped.      .  "Why doesn't,the horse go backward?"  asked my friend.  "Well, the driver didn't want him to."  "But he,said 'Back!'"      '    *  ������"Yes, I know, butthe horse knew he  didn't mean it."    ���������  "But what does 'he say when he means  go 'backward?'." ,      .  "The same thing." ,  "Does the, horse do it? How does he  know when he means 'back''and when  'stop?'" ' .      .  "I don't know, 1 am'sure."    ,,, <���������,  "Well, this must be a-very dull, man  and a very bright horse." ;  "Not at all; both a bout; the average.".  "This is most peculiar.

"Sometimes, lie   does * not Cstart   very-  quickly." ,  "Then what does the man'do?"  "He pulls on the reins." ,    .  ' "Does that always mean to 'go ahead?'"  "Well, no; not always.    Of.course he  pulls  on  them  when   he   wants  him  to  stop too."       , ' ,   - ,  "What? The same thing for stopping'  and starting?" '      -  "Well, not exactly the same, but much  the same."' ���������  "Well, well! And what is'the result of.  such an outrageously mixed code of sig-*  nals? I don't see how,they get along to-,  gether.",    ' - *        ''",-;  "Well,' Ljdon't know just liow the horse  reasons it, out, but they get on surprisingly welll. The horse just takes it foiv  granted that all pulls mean 'go ahead'  till'he gets such a long* and strong pull  that he-wonders if that is intended for  'stop,' and then he stops,. and if he  doesn't get a cut of the whip he c<wcludes_  he must haveguessed right."

"There is no end of ways for beating  the small expressman about town," said  lth<-.-.rT-innrin. the peaked cap. "I've had a  good many clever tricks played on me in  my 20 years' ^career as an expressman,  but the smoothest chap that ever 'worked' me for a snap wap J. Collins. I saw  Collins just three'times in my life. The  first time'was when. I moved^tiim. from  Forty-fourth street up to Ninetieth street.  I was employed then by an'express'company whose place of business was in  Eighth avenue, and' when Collins came  around _to rthe, office and said he wanted  us to move a trunk ,and a box of books I  was sent out to do the job.  "Collins was a little man with bulging  bluo eyes, a sandy mustache and a .mole  on'his chin. He watched me.like a hawk  while,1 was .carrying his things down,  stairs and loading them in the' wagon-  When I got ready;to drive'off, _he said:  'Oh', by the way, I' have an. extra valise  here I wish you'd put in with the other  things if it isn't too-much trouble. I'd  carry it myself, but I'm not going straight  up to the house, and I hate to be bothered  .with lugging it around all over town.' ,  ,j "Now, it was against the rules of the  company for the driver to haul'anything  for a customer not, listed at the office. I  told Collins so, .but he didn't give a continental ��������� for' laws and'regulations.'���������  " 'Oh, pshaw!' he, said. .'That'll be all  'right.* Nobody need know,tanything,about  it but you 0and me.  It'ir.be a great favor  to me for you to take the. grip, and I'll  make it worth your' while.'"   "  /', ��������� "  "    "Clear up" to the last minute my judgment argued that the. course - of wisdom  -was to persist in my^ first  refusal,  but  Collins'  insistence* 'finally' won .the -day,  and I consented to take the gript. Collins  I went down to" the street, with me, and  j just  before. I  mounted   to  the seat  he  j pressed a half dollar into my hand as a  sedative   for  my   uneasy   conscience.    I  drove direct' from' Forty-fourth street to  Collins'- new boarding house, but when I  got there the grip was gone., Collins raised a terrible row about it.' He maintained  , that it contained odds and ends of valua-  ' ble bric-a-brac, and he threatened "to bring  suit against the company for $100. _ The  company * acted wonderfully  white with  me.   Although they could be held in no-  ,wise guilty for'a-violation of their rules,  they naturally disliked police court notoriety and finally compromised with Collins  for'$50,  of which- they ' generously  paid one-half, thus letting me off with a  punishment fee of only $25.  "Three months after that I left;the  Eighth street concern and went to work  for a .company, up on Columbus avenue.  -One evening shortly after I-was sent out  to fill several orders that had' come' in  late'in'the afternoon. I .was',half dead  that night with toothache, and my companion, a good natured sort of fellow, did  most of the work and attended to all of  the details of the moving. So intense waa  my pain that 1 gave scarcely a thought to  where we were or what we were doing  until I heard my man snorting around  and swearing'Jike all possessed. Then I  got up spunk enough to ask what was the  matter.  " 'Holy smoke,' he said, 'that grip is  gone! That fellow' up on Seventy-fifth  street insisted upon my bringing a valise  along with his trunk and boxes, paid ma  50 cents extra for doing it, and now it's  gone.    I'm in a pretty fix, I am.'  "Instantly my tooth ceased to jump  and my heart took up the tempestuous  refrain. 'Was the man's name Collins?'  I asked.  " 'Yes.'said he. 'Did you see him? He  .was monkeying around between the house  and the wagon all the time, but it was  kind of dark, and you had your face all  bundled up and seemed to be more dead  than alive, and I didn't think you took  any notice of him.'  " 'I didn't,' said I, 'but I know how h������  looks.' Then'I described Collins to a T.  Sure enough, .it was my old friend J. C.  who had met with the loss, and again' h������  got damages for bric-a-brac which had  been packed in his grip. At that I began  to get suspicious, and when I went into  business for myself a few .weeks later I  resolved to keep an eye open for J. Collins. I hadn't been on this corner two  weeks before I fell foul of Collins. He  wanted to Be moved again, this time to  the depot. I deputed one of my men to  transact business with him, and that  night when the driver went- oyer after  his' trunks I hovered around in the background and watched his movements. His  trick was simple. He swiped his own  grip, which was comparatively easy to  do, considering hV always had the expressman call late in the evening. I  hurried over to the depot ahead of him  to watch the entire proceeding. As usual  he flew into. a terrible rage when the  driver reported that the grip was lost  and demanded satisfaction then and  there. Then I stepped up, and in less  than five minutes J. Collins had become  considerably wiser. \ _  " 'I ought to bring you into court,' said  I, 'and make an example of you, for I  don't doubt that there are other dead-  beats working the express companies the  same way, only they may not do it so  frequently, but if you pay me what you  soaked me and my friends for I'll let you  off.' ��������������������������� ,  "J.

Bridgewrater, N.S., * June 3 ���������(Special)���������The case'"of John ,S. Morgan,  plumber" and tinsmith, of this town,  should be put , prominently before  every union., and non-union man in  Canada".- In a" matter <like this there  should be no distinction, the benefit  belongs to all.  ��������� John S. Morgan for eight years  was hampered in his work by backache. Stooping- continually at work  is tho cause .of a great deal of backache, though not in the way most  people imagine. Mr. Morgan's letter explains the truth of the matter  when he says Dodd's Kidney Pills  cured his backache. It was really  Kidney ache that Dodd's Kidney'pills  cured. It was really Kidney ache  that' troubled Mr.  Morgan.  Backache is the commonest symptom of Kidney Disease. Kidney Disease is the commonest of human'ailments, and Dodd's Kidney Pills are  the one infallible cure for all Kidney  diseases. Read what Mr. Morgan  says about them himself.  "I have been subject to lame back  for eight years. The different remedies I tried were no good. I got so  that I was crippled up entirely and  couldn't do a tap of work. .Another  Uhing was a frequent desire to urinate'  altogether  unnatural.  "About a year ago I commenced to  use Dodd's Kidney Pills. I had run  down in weight to about'l-lOc-pounds.  During the. time I was using Dodd's  Kidney Pills I gained 23 pounds. My  back got better and better as I continued taking the pills until today I  am as free from backache as ever I  was in my life. This after eight  years 6f.it means an awful-lot'to me.  I realize the danger I was in and  know what I owe to Dodd's Kidney  Pills.'*;'';;'.:'' '���������   . ���������-.  ���������'"I recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills  to anyone who has backache or any  other Kidney complaint."  Difference* _ Bet-ween  tbe  Lie-**-*-*-.,  Eyet  and Enri of Men and Women.  tThe two sides of a person's face are  ���������ever alike. The eyes are out of line  in two1 cases out of five, aiid one eye ia  stronger than tbe other in; seven persons out1 of ten. The "right ear^is also,;  as a rule, higher than the'left.  Only one person in 15. has perfect  eyes, the, largest percentage of defects  prevailing among fair- haired' people.  Short sight is more common in town  than among country, folk, and .of all  people the Germans' have the largest  proportion of shortsighted persons^;  ' The crystalline lens of;the eye,is thfl  one portion of the human body which  continues' to increase with the attainment of maturity. _  The smallest interval of sound can  be better distinguished with one _eat,  than with both.

Ben Webster, an English actor, told  a good story of bow he held his own  when Sir Henry Irving happened to be  absentmiuded. In the "Lyons Mail"  there is a touching scene between Le-  surques (played by Irving) and his  daughter Julie, of which Didier (Mr.  Ben Webster) is a perfectly silent witness.  One night Sir Henry, Instead of making his long speech, appealed in trembling tones to Mr. Webster: "Speak to  her, Didier; speak to her!" Didier was  dumfounded. There was an awful  pause. Irving, quite unconscious of  his own mistake, frowned wrathfully  at the young actor, but Mr. Webster,  equal to the occasion, gave way to a-  burst of tears and exclaimed, "1 cannot; you know 1 cannot speakl" and  turned his back on the audience.  Then Sir Henry picked .up his lines  with a start, and it was observed that  Didier's shoulders shook with emotionj  Victoria's  Proposal.  It was at Windsor castle that Queen  Victoria, then only a girl of 20, did  what sbe described as "the most nervous thing a woman was ever called on  to do"���������when she summoned the young  'Prince Albert'of Saxe-Coburg-Goth'a tc  a private interview and "proposed" tc  him. She had first met him when as a  ;boy of 17 be came with, his father tc  England, and when, three years later,  he "made no secret"-of his love for his  fair cousin "no one was surprised and  every one was delighted."���������London Tit  Bits.

' -Sandwick, B.C., Julv31, 1901.    *  Editor Cumberland News--Sir:  a  Allow me very briefly to , answer  ,the second question asked by the'  boys about the use of tobacco. The  first question, ")Vhat \a ill  it  cost,"-  ' i  in twenty years, from 18 -to' 40,   I  have told you at 3 good cigars and  2 drinks of beer will come to  over  $4,000.    Bui aiyoung gentleman at  Courtenay'told me he could run an  ,old fashio: ed pipe as far as'.tobaoco  was concerned for only 30 cents   a  'week or about $350   if, .you   allow '  anything for the cost of pipes. How  nice to have three or four  hundred ,  dollars in the bank when you   are;  40 years  old  and need   it. k   And  ** \-  can you. earn   it honestly ��������� in   any  easier way than by Jetting tobacco  alone?" * But the Second Question'is  '���������What'harm -villi it do .us?;'-'    , In  answer to this I venture   to   state;  without fear  of  t-uceessful "contra-  dicti .n, that tobacco contains' nicor  tino which   (ends   to   vitiate.' and  destroy the user.      It  is'true  that  'some persops follow, the'habit for  a  long time whhuut any app irent in-  jury, but-every, physician whom  1  have "consulted   on 'thev subject,  stated thaVit'was-unnecessary ���������' to  health, and was. often the  car.Sd* of  chroi.ic diseases'of   the   heart and  stomach.. . A single Case is   not' always sufflcient'evidenco  to  justify  or condemn, but where statistics of  large numbess are taken, ,the conclusion is pretty sure to be   ths  cor-,  rect one.    The Minister or Super?n-  tendent of JEducati m for tbe  Stale  of California in giving evidence before the State Legislature ao" Sacri-  mento, stated that  "the   b >ys who  smoked and chewed   tobacco,   fell  far behind  in   their   studies,   and  were much worsein every way than  those who did not."u    So  you   can'  see the use of tobacco will  degrade  you morally, mentally, physically,  socially   and    financiall}*-. '   Who  wants to be a victim of a degrading'  habit?    If you mi'.st spend money  foolishly, slip   your   bills   quietiy  one at a time into   the  stove,   and  e-irn more to make a good use of it,  that is the advice of your  humble  servant.
