Merchants who send out of town  for their printing should do a mail  order business with people in Spokane, Toronto and other cities.  Owing to the prevalence of other  events the probability is almost  certain that the city council will  not meet until next Monday evening.  A local wit saj's that times are  so hard in Greenwood that a holdup man would come out in debt if  he attempted to work at his business in this city.  Miss C. M. Martin of the public  school staff left last week for Prince  Rupert. Miss C. E. Stevenson of  Chilli wack takes Mis'- Martin's position on the local staff.  working al'hia trade. The emoluments iu the printing buRineis may  be larger, but politics offer- greater  social opportunities. Perhaps tho  social advancement that politics  offer is the reason why pn many  of our brainiest and h������nst careful  wien financially leave the composing room to become - statesmen.  With the improvident abandon of  a iiritypr Mr. Scott, at the meeting  last, evening, offered (,*> throw "in  a cabinet position wilhMr. 1'opp.  if the people 'of Yale-Cariboo  would give him a rnajoiity. of 800  or 400���������a sort of pri/.e with overy  package.

A report from Danville says that  mining in  that   camp  is  looking  better than   ever before.    Several  prop'erties are. now boiug operated  which have bc^ii  lying idle for a  long   time.    The   Lucilo  Dreyfus  has recently resumed work, and is  now shipping good grade ore to the  Northport smelter at the rate of 30  tons a day.

Charles Bunting and Parker  Williams spoke on Socialism in the  Miller block Monday night. Mr.  Bunting made the usual stock  Socialist speech that may be heard  on the street corner of a city.  Some one has said : " He' who has  learned how to read, a"nd not what  to read, is in a position of great  danger," Mr. Bunting has learned  how to read. Mr. Williams has  also learned what to read, and  is a broad-minded, earnest rcasouer  on economic questions.  Geo. R. Naden, it is said, was  ou Monday's train arriving in  Greenwood. It is supposed he  went to Rock Creek to consult  with his constituents in reference  to resigning his seat in tho local  house. After today it is probable.  Mr. Ross will devote his attention  to provincial, politics, aud Air. Naden will, of course, make room for  his master in the local house. The  salary attached to the position ca n  be made up to Mr. Naden by giving him a federal "job" up north.  A number of photo-engravings  purporting to represent a scene on  Martin Btirrell's ranch, were pasted  on business windows about 2  o'clock Wednesday morning by  business men of the city. The  photograph represents a number  of Hindus at cue edge of the tini-  bor, and is probably- a railroad  camp scene at some .wooded'point  along the C. P. R. If those who  pasted up the photographs were  not ashamed of the business in  which they '-.were engaged they  would have done it in daylight,  and it is pretty low-down to scab  on tho bill-poster.

'   ���������.  .For tho fust ten months of this  year 10,922 tons of ore were shipped through Kaslo.  The Bluebell mine on Kootenay  lake has resumed shipments of ore.  Pete' McGregor, the leading  humorist of Kaslo, advertises that  he still has some ice for sale in  case of sickness. This i.s fortunate,  for Collins, the morning doctor,  will need several chunks of it the  day after the election.  That was a lucky move of Purley  Ward's /from Sandon to Nelson.  He got married last week.  A new hockey rink is being  built gin Nelson, SO x 130 feet in  size.  Attempting to bribe the electors  by announcing pictorially and  otherwise that postoffices will be  built in various towns is a clever  scheme of the Laurier government.  Another vote cetcher is the dickering with1 half a dozen people in  each town with a view of prolonging the purchase of sites until the  election is over.

IIo was smiling unci happy., IIo had a look of importance on his face.    Even before h������  .   had entered  the gate it was evident  that something* good had happened.

"Something 1ms, Mrs. Bowser,    Fortune has at last-   But wait a little."  "Can't you give me an Inkling of  what it is?"  "Just one liltie inkling. Wc shall ba  worth millions of dollars in tho coursa  of ihe next live years. Not another  word now."

HALF   A   MLLION  -rma-LES and tukee on four million  GUltUAN CAlU'l"  Bowser made a dramatic entrance and  said: *  "Now, then, for explanations, and I  hope that you will see things just as  1 do and there will be nothing to argue  about. I will own up that you have  prevented me from entering into some  very foolish speculations, hut in this  case I know I shall find all encouragement. You know that the times havo  been hard for the last few months."  "Of course."  "Men   with   even   a  good   thing  on  their  hands  have  had   hard  work  to  save it. and they are not out of the  woods yet."  "Wolf?"  "Well, a man was in the office today  with a good thing. ITe wanted to raiso  a thousand dollars to save it; but, being unable to do so. he offered me the  most colossal bargain of the century.  It's gigantic, it's tremendous. It's  something to take your breath away."  "I'm listening."  "Mrs.  Bowser, where do frogs' legs  t'ome from?"  "They  are  cut   from   tho   bodies  of  frogs."  "And whore do we get turtle soup?"  "From  turtles unless the cook  uses  mutton."  "And   did  you  ever  hear of a   fish  called the German carp?"  "I  have.    It is said to bo excellent  eating."  .-'And now, Mrs. Bowser, frogs' legs  sell at 50 cents a dozen pair, and there's  always a demand. A turtle as big as  the bottom of a quart dish sells for $1.  German carp sell for 30 cents a pound,  and the hotels can't get half enough  of them. You see all this, dou't you?"  "Yes."  "Well, suppose*- we had our own private lake and in (hat lake wc had a  million frogs, half a million turtles  . and three or four million German  carp. Would tliere be anything to  prevent us from becoming millionaires?"  "Xot a thing."  "Ah. but that's the way I like to hear  you talk!   Now you are taking a wifely interest In your husband's business  affairs.    You can see as well as I/do  that we woul;] have something better  than a gold mine.   Then you will consent to tlie exchange?"  "But what exchange?"  "Wo are going to exchange our house  and lot for a little farm twenty miles  out, with a private lake on it. There's  n fairly decent house and four acres of  land besides the lake.   There's an or-  chard, a garden, and the rest Is lawn.  hi that lake are the frogs, turtles and  'cnrp'I spoke of, mid all 1 have to do Is  to linul  I hem out and send them  to  market and get my money.    Hurrah  for.us!"  "The turtles, frogs and carp have  been counted, have thoy?" asked Mrs.  Bowser after he had got through dancing around. ,  "Why, no, of course not. The man  estimates the number, and he says he  has made a low estimate. In a month  from uow, or by the time wo get out  there, the increase will bo 10 per cent.

Mr. Bowser looked at her for a long  minute to see if she was sarcastic or tu  earnest and then adopted her suggestion of seeing the other property on the  morrow. During the remainder of the  evening he was busy withHigurcs.  He figured 5,000,000 pairs of frogs'  legs at 50 cents a pair.  He figured 3,000,000 turtles at a dollar  apiece.

It  was Standard Oil and the'steel'trust  combined.    After an almost sleepless  night and a bile of breakfast he was  ou his way, and by 10 o'clock in tho  forenoon he had reached Turtle Villa.  The place was a  mile from the railroad station.   It was a poor old frame  house which had'never been  painted  nnd never quite finished.   The orchnrd  consisted of two dead apple trees and  one cherry tree which was trying to  live for spite.   The lawn was a mass  of burdocks and weeds.  The lake could bo seen from the  front gate. It was a pond off at>one  side and at the foot of the hill. It was  half.an acre in extent and at least two  feet deep, and on a log sat a solitary  bullfrog with closed eyes and a resigned air.  "Ah, I hardly expected you today,"  said the owner of the place as he came  out and shook hands.  "No? I thought I would come and  push things along. You call this house  a villa, do you?"  "Well, it will be when It's finished  There will be four towers to it."  "Urn!   And this is the orchard?"  "Tes, sir.    We had nearly a bushel  of cherries off that, tree last summer."  "And this is the lawn?"  "It is."  "Urn!   And down there is the lake?"  "Yes, sir-Lake Crystal.   From that  lake you arc to draw your riches."  Mr. Bowser stood and took a long  look around, and tho longer he looked  the madder he got. He finally turned  to the map and said:  "Sir. you are an infernal liar and  swindler, and I can lick you in two  minutes by the clock!"  Then   ho  turned  away  and   walked  down the path and down tho highway  and   took  the  train   for  homo.    Mrs.  Bowser and the cat were on the front  steps to greet him, and as he ascended the steps, he was asked:  "Well, what about Turtle Villa?"  "No   remarks,   woman!"   he  replied,  with  a   glare.    "You  can   pack  your  trunks and be ready to start for your  mother's   at   C   o'clock   this   evening.

He never sneaked  stamps from his employer, aud ho never threw the pretty typewriter into  tits by whispering to her that he had  Just seen a mouse scoot under her  desk. Being a truthful boy, little  Willie replied: *  "No, sir. I ain't got no grandmother. But the club that's in first place  is going to play hero today, and I'd  like to see the game."  Tho old' gentleman stared at him  helplessly for a moment and then drew  from his pocket $2, which he handed  to the boy.

Dr. Williams' rink Pills Restore a  Despopdent fnffeier to Health.  OCEAN AN ENORMOUS POOL  ALICE STEEL, rMlrtUESS.  Story of Little English Orphan Reads  Like a  Fairy  Tale.  Strange as it may seem, it is all  really true. Little Alice.Steel, the  orphan daughter of u bricklayer, has  become the adopted daughter of the  Princess of Wales, the future Queen  of England. Her story sounds like a  fairy tale.  Hor father wns killed at his work  nine years ago, when Alice was a tot  of five. Two years later the terrible  ig.it against overmastering poverty  killed the mother. The children were  sent   to   charitable   institutions  and  _  Although it is now    some    years  since I found it necessary to take medicine  of  any  kind,   I  attribute my  present good  health  entirely  to  Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills."    Thus  write.*  f- Wm. M. Ferguson, St. John West,  jN.B.  Mr.  Ferguson continues:���������"For  years I was a sufferer* from chronic  bronchitis and general debility. I had  always  been delicate  but as  I grew  older* I seeemed to grow weaker, and  at the  approach  of autumn  I  com-  mensod to cough and had to remain  in the house all  winter.      With tho  coming  of   summer  I  always   got   a  little better, only to be laid low' again  when the fine weather was over. During my last and most severe attack  my   cough   became  more   distressing  and   I raised    considerable   phlegm,  while at night r would be bathed in  a cold, clammy sweat.    The doctor's  medicine relieved my cough  a little  during the  day  time,  but there was  no  other improvement as  I had  no  appetite, the night sweats continued  and I was growing weaker.   I changed  doctors  three  different limes  but  with no improvement.   Then'I began  to take cod liver oil, but my stomach  had grown so weak that it refused to  retain it.   It was at this time when 1  was trying to reconcile myself to my  fate  that a  pamphlet  relating  cures  wrought by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  was  left at  my door.   'Although  my '  friends thought me in a decline, and  although I was feeling hopeless myself, I decided to try the Pills. After  using  several   boxes,   though   I   still  continued to cough, I felt better in  other respects, and my appetite wns  gradually returning.    I was not only  surprised,   but   pleased   to   find   this  improvement, and I.gladly continued  their use.    By the time I had taken  ten  boxes the night sweats and  the  cough  had entirely disappeared,  and  I wns feeling quite vigorous.    I took  two more boxes,  and felt that there  was   no  necessity    to  continue    the  treatment as I was in  better health  than I had ever been before.

But  most of the exalted ladies take but  perfunctory interest in their little  charges beyond sending a small gift  once in so often.  Not so with the Princess of Wales.  She visited the home, at Addlestone so  often that she was asked if she would  ���������ike a child as a protegee.  'Why, certainly," said the princess.*  A child was recommended to her by  the matron, but the princess said she  preferred to choose for herself. So  she looked them all over, and singled  out Alice Steel, then ten vears old,  whoso chief recommendation was that  she was eternally getting into mischief.  ��������� Her-choice was signalized by the  princess calling the child to come  with her for a motor ride in the royal  car All this was contrary' to the  rules, but what are rules to a princess  .and. future_Quoon?-Alioo-wont.- Sho.  wasn't told who her now found friend  was, and she chatted alone ns gayly  as you please, though perhaps had  sho known h'er hostess was to be  Queen some day she would have been  tongue-tied with fright.

Winds and Currents Keep  It Moving'  Round and Round.  The discoveries  of modern science  have  revealed  monsters of the deep  as terrific as any that ancient fancy  created and have shown that occaris  aro not more wastes of water, but the'  homos  of   an' astounding   variety   of  living things._   More than this, it has  been discovered that the seas themselves have each a sort of law of existence which they obey.   The hydro-  graphic office at Washington has ,for  years been trying to learn somothing  of the characteristics of the Atlantic'  ocean   as   a   groat   moving   body   of  pater by means of bottles containing  papers,   which    have   been   dropped  overboard    from    vessels  ��������� in    many  places  to drift at the mercy of the  winds and waves. ' -   -  Many of these bottles have been  found and picked up again either in  the open sea or on shores where they  had stranded.'  Knowing from its records where  the bottles had been thrown overboard, the bureau has been able to  trace in a general way the path they  must have followed in order to reach  tho places where they were found.  ��������� Being partially filled with air and  then securely corked, the bottles float  on the' surface of the water and go  wherever the winds and the currents  of the sea carry them. Each bottle  contains a record of the place and,  date of its starting. Some of those  found have floated for many months  on the bosom of the Atlantic and  traveled thousands of miles.  It has been' ascertained that bottles dropped overboard between tho  shores of the United States and England or Franco generally travel toward the northeast, following the  course of that, great rivc.r in tho ocean  called the gulf stream. Bottles smarted off the coasts of Spain or Africa  travel westward until they -arrive  among the West India islands. Along'  the European side of the ocean, the  bottles take a southerly course and  along the American side a northerly  course.  Thus as a result of winds and cui-  ronts tho whole Atlantic is shown to.  be slowly circulating, around and  around, like an enormous pool. This  accounts for the stories that were  current in Europe hundreds of years  ago of strange objects of human manufacture having floated: from the new  to the old world, thus giving a clew  to the existence of undiscovered lands  across the f,ea.

"Very' few men brush their hair  enough," said a downtown barber.  "Fact. Most ills of the scalp carl be,  traced to that fault. You see it's this  way.   A man is generally in a' hurry  '   "when he dresses and he never takes  time    to " brush    his ��������� Inir, . simply  smoothes it down, generally only with  , a comb, and, as a rcsu.lt/-dandruff is  allowed to accumulate and trouble he-  gins.   Now, with a woman it's differ-  ..cnt.   A woman has to carefully brush  her hair at least once a clay.   If she  didn't it would be a pretty mess; its  very length saves her, for in brusn-  ing it each day, she gets out all sorts  of impurities, dandruff and the like,  all  of  which  is  for  her  own .good.  Now,  that  is  the.reason  why  fewer  women suffer from dandruff than the  unfortunate members of the opposite  sex,   and it is  also  the reason  why  tho hair is a woman's crowning glory,  even if she is fair, fat and forty.    So  brush  your hair every morning thoroughly, if you want to keep in the  swim.      You're right.  ' Next,  sir:���������  .

The woman who freckles easily and  dreads   the   summer   time   Is   to   be  pitied.  Tan and sunburn are unsightly und  painful, but after awhile they disappear. But not so with freckles. They  will remain through the winter months  unless something Is done to remove  them. This, as all know from experi-  . ence, Is' much easier said than done,  j They are as stubborn to remove as  a willful child when It Is necessary to  make.him obey.  The following formula.is said to be  pne of'the best to remove them; Lactic acid, four ounces; glycerin, two  ounces; rosewater, one ounce.  Apply this lotion to the face several  times during the day. Put a small portion in a dish and dip a soft linen rag  Into It and apply.  All skins will not stand the same  treatment, and .while some may -use  this lotion or other face-lotions with  no ill effect, others may suffer from a  burning sensation of the skin.  To prevent, this burning it will be  better to massage the face after using  the lollon with this elder flower cream:  Almond oil, three ounces; white wax,  Ave drams; spermaceti, five drams;  lanolin, one ounce; witch hazel, one  ounce; elder flower water, three ounces;  oil of bitter almonds, one dram. '  Massage the skin with this every  night nnd one will bo well'repaid for  the little trouble. The skin will'become soft and supple and a dainty  white. If the skin is inclined to be  rough nnd dry, It will be beneficial.  This cream is not only good to use  after the freckle lotion, but on any  3ry, ugly skin. Jt will take away the  roughness and give the skin a delicate  appearance.  What a Collision Means to the  Man at the Throttle.  WHICH   WAY?  Protect  or   Plant  PLIGHT   OF   THE   ENGINEER.

Some of Them Are Larger Than Many  of the States.  The county is a territorial division  that the United States derived from  Great   Britain,   where   the   counties  correspond   to   the   provinces  or  departments   of  other  European   countries and in a limited sense to the  states   of, the  American  Union.    An  addresses   a   letter, to  address  or "El-  mira, N.Y."  One state, which derives its usages  from French and not from English  originals, has no counties at all. In  Louisiana these subdivisions of the  state are still called parishes, both  officially and in" ordinary speech,  though they are now divided into  many real parishes of the church.  There are about 3,000 counties in:  the Union, ��������� with an average size of  about 1,000 square miles, ,but this  average is enormously exceeded' in  many instances arid is also frequent-'  ly fallen below. Leaving out certain  great unsettled counties in the west,  the average county would be about  500 square miles in cxt-ent.  In much of the western part of the  country the- size of the county is  regulated mathematically. It consists  of sixteen townships, each composed  of thirty-six square miles, making  57G square miles in all. In other  words, each township is six miles  square and each county twenty-four  miles square.  In Iowa there arc thirty-nine counties that were formed in this way,  each one of which has'exactly 576  square miles. Such divisions were  possible in tho newer west, where  these minor political divisions were  made in advance of settlement. In  the older parts of the country the territorial arrangements were largely  accidental.  The largest county in the United  'States is Yavapai county, Ariz., which  has.an area of almost 30,000 square  miles. Nine states of the Union are  each smaller than this county. It  is larger than the whole of West  Virginia and almost as large as South  Carolina.  The sixteen counties of Montana  average' a greater size than the state  of Massachusetts.  Among the other great counties of  the Union are San Bernardino and  San Diego, in California, which are  not only vast regions, but contain a  great productive territory; Humboldt  and Lincoln counties, in Nevada,  which are only sparsely populated,  and Lincoln county, N. M., which  bids fair in time to have a large  population. r"  Although the New England states  are small, the average size of the  counties is greater than in most of  the middle, western and southern  states. Worcester county, in Massachusetts, is an example of an eastern county that is at the same time  large in area and very populous. It  is larger than the adjoining state of  Rhode Island/  The smallest state in the Union  has the smallest county as well,  Bristol county, R. I., has only twenty-five square miles. At one place  it is not more than two miles in  breadth.  II  E'  You Are Greeted by a Deafening.

Among  them   are   kangaroo   tendons,   horsehair, silk, and very fine- silver wire.

The  short, tough tendons taken from the  kangaroo, which are used for sewing  severe wounds,   will  hold  for  about  four weeks  before they  break away.  Silk thread will remain much longer,  sometimes six months, .while the fine  silver wire is practically indestructible.  With the entire outfit a surgeon is  able to select a thread that will last  as long as the wound takes to heal,  and will then disappear completely.  To accommodate this assortment -if  threads, special varieties of needles  arc required. Besides the needle  craned in different segments of a  circle, surgeons use needles shaped  like spears, javelins and bayonet  points.  Carterhall, Nlld.  Mmard's Liniment Co., Limited.

To Make .Yoursslf Heard at All You  Must Shout Into'the Ear of a Companion���������The Economy of Space and  the Simplicity of Arrangements.  Cliubing down ten rungs of an  Iron ladder into the Interior of a submarine is like going into a boiler shop  where there Is one continuous, deafening, ear splitting racket like a dozen  trip hammers chattering a tattoo amid  a grind and rumble and .thump of machinery as If, especially designed to  burst your eardrums.  At first the noise in that narrowly  confined space Is painful and bewildering. To make yourself at all heard  you must shout Into the ear of a companion. So Intense is tho strain, says  a writer in St. Nicholas, that you marvel how day in and day out human  ears can withstand the ordeal.  You fiud yourself inside what seema  an enormous steel cigar painted a neat  pearl gray, a color which is serviceable  and does uot d:i7zIo tire eye. Light  comes to you'partly through portholes  ancl In part from Incandescent lamps  placed forehand aft In the darker parts  of the hull.  You have expected, of course, to  land In a tangle of whirling machinery  that fills the Inside of the boat from  stem to stern, threatening with every  revolution to take nn arm or a log off.  Instead the first thing you see Is an  uninterrupted "working space," or  deck, measuring 7 by 25 or 30 feet.  At the stern, far in the background,  are the machines ancl engines. In fact,  this section of the vessel is nothing but  machinery, a rumbling mass of silvery  steel and glittering brass revolving al  the rate of fi'00 times a minute, so compact that you wonder how the various  parts can turn without conflicting or  how it is possible for human hands to  squeeze through the maze to oil the  machinery.  But this economy of space Is as nothing to what you whl see. Tho floor  you stand on Is a cover for the cells of  the storage batteries wherein is pent  up the electricity with which your boat  will propel herself when she runs submerged.  The four torpedoes, measuring sixteen feet three inches long, eighteen  inches .in diameter and weighing 1,500  pounds each, are lashed end for end in  pairs at either side, and directly over  those are tool boxes and hinged bunks  for the crew to sleep In.  The very air which is taken along to  keep life in you in case the boat should  be detained beneath the surface longer  than usual is compressed in a steel cylinder 2,000 pounds per square inch, a  pressure so intense that were the'cylinder to spring a leak uo larger than a  piu hole and were the tiny stream of  escaping air to strike a human being it  would penetrate him Ihrough and  through and drill a hole "through an  hich thick board behind him.

A cold shower bath,  followed by a rubbing clown with a  coarse towel/ and ten or fifteen  minutes' exercise with any convenient apparatus, is a great in-  vigorator. Su'eb exercises may be  taken conveniently in one's underwear, before completely dressing, or, if the weather- is not too  cold, it may be done stripped with  great credit and satisfaction. The  in.'iu who once acquires the habit  of a cold shower bath and exercise  in the nude soon comes to enjoy it,  and to realize-what a ��������� barbarous  thing ic is to have to wenr'so many  clothes. , He secures so much freedom of motion and feels such a de-  lif.htful glow all over from the combination of exercise and nudity.  Tho feeling must be experienced to  be appreciated.

Six  were fount] that manifested more  or less the symptoms of tobacco  blindness. It is an interesting  scientific fact that the colored race  is immune from this ullliclion. Out  of thirty who were examined none  were examined none were found to  have the trouble. The women, I  speak of whites, up to the present  time seem to be practically exempt  from this tror.ble. Out of fifty ex.  amined in a Cincinnati tobacco factory some time ago only one was  found to possess the tobacco blindness to a slight, degree. She was  an old-time "employee in the stripping department, and was probably a user of tobacco.

HEMKHAV,  Tiri-'iu-: is an organized movement in the United States to place  a bible in every room of the hotels  in the entire country. Many people who have never seen the book  will now have a chance of readingit.  With one exception there has  not been a fire in fuming, frenzied  Fernie since August. Mout of tlie  people there are still crazy, owing  to the ignorance of knowing how  to eat and drink in a high altitude,  and calamities will always fall  upon that bustling city.  Tin-: AJberni News says that tlio  action of J)r. Quinlan in.failing to  oppose Sloan at the last hour was  too deplorable for charitable contemplation. From this we judge  that Doc had better.keep away  from Alberni unless he wishes to  butt into a bouquet of decayed hen  fruit.'  J.v Utah the Morman church has  decided to enforce prohibition  among its members. If the Roman  Catholic church would do the same  thing the whiskey men would find  it difficult to make a living. That  great church has the power under  the pain of excommunication to  make millions turn^froin the bottle  to tho crucifix.  fashionable set, time can only tell.  Of all tbe employees  in   tlie tobacco   factories 90  per cent,   use  tobacco in  some   form   or  other.  They are forbidden to smoke in the  factories, but do so after or before  work. The ventilation of the work  rooms, as a general thing, is as  grod as as' could be expected in  such establishments. The principal colors confounded by the afflicted are ntt\, confounded with  pink, dark brown or black, the latter usually in the pronounced  stages; green is confounded with  light blue or white. A majority  showed contracted pupils, some  to the size of a pinhead. Once I  found a young man of ninuiCfii,  an inveterate smoker, who suffered  from tob.icro blindness. Usually  only the older men suffer.  There is almost always a gradual  but progressive failure of vision in  both eyes. Luminous objects dazzle the sight, and_a bright light is  worse for reading"than a subdued  one. These patients are better in  the evening than in the middle of  the day. In addition to this,  patients often complain ofaglim-  meiing mist that covers all objects  in a bright light.' Nicotine in the  tobacco causes the allliction. The  oily, colorless fluid diffuses itself in  the blood'with as much rapidity as  pru-isic: acid, and a poisonous dose  lias been known to kill an adult in  three minutes. The cheaper-grades  of tabacco contain more nicotine  than the expensive ones, consequently-are more injurious to the  consumer. This is probably the  reason why tobacco-blindness is  more common among the poor than  among the rich. Chewing tobacco  is usually very rich, in nicotine.  Nicotine usually exerts a marked  influence on the blood  corpuscles.  To cure the disease of tobacco  blindness tho use of tobacco and  alcoholic drinks must bo stopped.
