An Injurious Habit.
Tbc New York Herald extracts
one good result from the somewhat
celebrated suit of Mrs. Harriet Hub-
hard Ayer against her puttier in the
cosmetic business —the light that is
thrown ou the terrible effects of sulfo-
nal. , ,
This drug acts upon the human
system like chloral, and is even more
injurious when habitually taken.
“At first,” says says the Herald “it
is a good frienu, bringing comfort and
consolation. Then it annoys like an
acquaintance who persists in coming
without being invited. Finally ii
develops into a sleepless demon, who
tortures his prey until death comes to
the rescue. Sulfonal has its place in
medicine and plays its proper part in
allaying subtile disorders, but it is not
to be used except with extreme cau
1 he use of sedatives and narcotics
iB doing our people almost as much
harm as absinthe drinking is doing
the French. The tendency of Ameri
cans to worry and overwork carries
with it the craving for such relief as
cocaine, chloral, sulfonal and otliei
treacherous drugs afford. The good
effect, however, is only temporary,
the evil retains is grip until the grave
appears to only way of escape.
The Cotton Plant.
H. W. Grady. _ .
What a royal plant it isl The
world waits in attendence ou its
growth. The shower that falls whis
pering ou its leaves is heard around
the earth. The sun that shines on it
is tempered by the prayers of all the
people. The frost that chills it and
the dew that descends from the stars is
noted, and the trespass of a little
worm on its green leaf is more to I'.n
gland than the advance of the It us
sian army on her Asian outposts. It
is gold from the instant it puts forth
its tiny shoot. Its fibre is current in
every bank, and when loosing its
fleeces to the sun, it floats A sunny
banner that glorifies the field of the
humble farmer, that men is marshal
under a flag that will compel alle
giance of the world, and wring a
subsidy from every nation on earth.
It is the heritage that God gave this
peoplo forever as their own when he
arched our skies, established our
mountains, girt about, us with ocean
loosed the breezes, tempered the sun
shine, and measured the rain. Our’s
and our children’s forever. Ad
princely a talent as ever came from
nis hand to mortal stewardship.
The continued use of mercury mix
tures poisons the system, causes the
bones to decay, and brings on^ mecuri
al rheumatism. The use of S. S. S
forces impurities from the blood, give 6
a good appetite and digestion, and
builds up the whole human frame.
