Use of Tobacco
patient  who  had  nob  smoked 20
cigarettes a day.
Dr. Abbe in his contribution to
fehe Medical Record, says: "Patients showing the ill effects of
tobacco are only those who have
been intemperate in its nse."
But then he adds: "How is one
to know that he is not an intemperate user?"
Smokers vary in their capacity.
Some can stand much tobacco
poisoning with apparent complete
immunity. Some are very susceptible to ife. And then, too, its
effects are insidious and cumulative. And on top of it a parent
who smokes is liable to pass the
habit on to the children.
General U. S. Grant died from
cancer, fehe result of the intemperate use of tobacco. His son, General Frederick D. Grant, smoked
equally as incessantly and also died
as a consequence of his intemperance, upon the authority of Dr.
Robert Abbe. Pretty much every
one in the country knew that
General Grant's death was due to
cancer and that he was an inveterate smoker. It has been used
as an argument against smoking
with a lot of boys. Some who
withstood the pressure will seriously heed the statement of Dr.
Abbe that smoking got General
F. D. Grant as well as his distinguished father. But to make the
matter stronger, Dr. Abbe cites
other illustrations.
An intelligent Italian came with
cancer of the tongue too far advanced for any help. The next
week a brother came, complaining
of a constant burning in his month.
These brothers had been heavy
smokers from boyhood. Tbe father and mother smoked all their
lives. The second brother took
the doctor's advice, accepted the
warning of a constant burning sensation in his month, and quit
smoking.
Two brothers came with beginning cancers of the month. The
disease in both cases was in tbe
early stage and core was possible.
The boys stopped smoking. They
had smoked since childhood. The
-father smoked all the time until
he got a cancer of the lower lip.
A man came for cancer of the
lip in an early stage. He could be
; cured if be would stop smoking.
He promised to stop and his wife
promised to help him. In two
weeks be came back for treatment
for his cancer. He had stopped
smoLing, had given all his cigars
away���to his son. He thought he
could trust his son not to overdo.
He did not know that cancer ran
in families, that smoking also does,
and that cancer is especially likely
feo develop in the families where
tbe men are Constant smokers.
Dr. Abbe says that he has never
seen serious month disease in any
Blair, the Regular
Blair, the regular, wounded lay
On the slopes of San Juan hill;
Near by were two of the volunteers,
Bleading and faint aud still;
And farther up, in a palm tree hid,
A Spaniard with deadiy gun
Took cruel aim at the men below,
Dropping them one by one.
One volunteer, with a feeble hand,
Fought with the plaguing flies;
It told the fact of lingering life
To the Spaniard's watchful eyes.
He raised his gun to his shoulder then,
And a bullet sang afar;
It hit the hat of the wounded man,
Who lay on the left of Blair.
Another!   The   boy   on   the right had
winced,
And uttered a moan of pain;
Another!   Blair looked at his reddened
blouse
And muttered, I'm hit again,
But  there's  one more load in   my old
gun"���
His brow grew black with a frown���
"And I vow I'll shoot that Spaniard brute,
Who fires on men that are down."
Weak were his hands as he raised his
gun,
But steady his eye and aim;
Soon,  round the trunk of the shielding
palm,
' The head of the Spanaird came.
Then up from the slope the Springfield
spoke
And answered the Mauser well;
Blair, the regular grimly smiled
As the Spaniard shrieked and fell.
The volunteer who lay on the left
Moaned "Water!" again and again.
Said Blair, "By making a double-quick
I may capture a full canteen."
So, firmly shutting his whitening lips,
He crept where the Spaniard lay,
Secured the prize and crept slowly back;-
And painful and long seemed the way.
"You first," said both ot the volunteers,
As he handed out the full canteen;
They saw his blood-stained blouse, and
they knew
Right well what its cost had been!
Blair could but whisper to answer them,
One hand on his bleeding side,
"You fellows have homes somewhere,"
said he,
"I'm a regular."   Then.he died.
Sidney of England,  make room!   Make
room
In thy niche of courtly fame,
While side by side with thine own we
.   write ."���'������
Another nobleman's name!
Blair the regular!   Homeless no more
Since thy death's heroic day.
Thy name and the fame of thy gallant
deed
Are homed in our hearts for aye.

ORIGINATORS
CLASS LEGISLATION
IN B. C. PROHIBITION ACT
Measure Would Mean One Law
For The Rich And An**
other For The Poor
As fehe details of fehe Prohibition
Acfe, on which fehe electors will
give a referendum vote on Sept.
14, are being brought out, fehe
measure is becoming unpopular
with fair minded men because of
the fact that the Act covers "class
legislation" of the mosfe pronounced
fcype.
It is one of fehe principles of true
and stable government thafe general laws should treat; all citizens
���whether workingman or employer, whether rich or poor���alike.
This principle is violated in a glaring manner by the Prohibition Act,
and for thafe reason, fehe measure
is being condemned by fehe working clasB in particular and fair
minded electors in general.
While many clauses of the Act
are of the "class legislation" type,'
the mosfe glaring instance is fehat
which is contained in Clause 57,
the section which provides for the
uncontrolled, unrestricted and unlimited importation of liquor from
outside the Province. This clause
reads as follows:
"NOTHING IN THIS ACT SHALL
BE CONSTRUED TO INTERFERE
"(a) WITH THE RIGHT OF ANY
PERSON TO IMPORT FROM WITHOUT THE PROVINCE LIQUOR FOR
BONA FIDE USE IN HIS PRIVATE
DWELLING HOUSE "
This clause is a direct blow at
fehe workman, fehe mainstay of the
prosperity of the Province, and
the man of moderate means, whose
earnings are insufficient to allow
him to save money to any considerable amount.
Ife is legislation which says to
the man who has money afe his disposal "You might import all the
liquor you wanfe, ordering ife by
the quart, gallon, case or barrel,
so long as you send outside the
Province for it." To fehe working-
man or man of moderate means',
who is accustomed to buy his beer
or other beverage by the glass or
bottle it says in emphatic feerms,
"No you can'fe do that any longer.
If you want to get liqnor in small
quantity and buy ife in your home
town, as yon have been accustomed
feo do, you musfe go to the doctor
and get a prescription, paying his
fee, and then gefe the prescription
filled at the drug store."
Is not this one law for the rich
and another for the poor, or man
of moderate means; one law for
the workingman and another for
fehe employer? And what in the
name of justice, is that but "class
legislation?"
As far as the principles of prohibition are concerned, fehe man
who would be hit by this class
legislation is asking the question
as to why Prohibitionists think
there is any more danger to be
feared from the consumption of
liquor which is bought by the
quart, case, gallon or barrel outside the Province, than there is
from its consumption when bought
locally, by the single glass or bottle. This question ia a hard one
for the Prohibitionists feo answer;
as the Act Bent to the electors with:
their approval providesfor the
purchase Of just as much liquor as
was previously the case, so long as
it is secured from a drag store or
imported from points outside the
Province.
An illustration of the manner iu
which even men of means view the
Act: is shown by the words of a
prominent ^Vancouver Financial
man, when he said: "If I voted
for the Prohibition Act, I'd do ife
with the knowledge that I could
get as much liquor as I wanted
anyhow, for I can afford to send
away for it. But I can't vote for
a measure which is so unfair as to
give privileges which are denied to
the workingman jnst because he
isn't as well fixed as I am."   .
