A story of tlio ('uban campaign
of 18US conccrnH tin* confusion of
tin* disembarkation. Tito trans
ports had anchored off the Cuban
coast and tJie disembarkation had
already begun. Every command
ing officer was anxious to have
his regiment or battery the lirst
to land, but the facilities for
landing were meager and the work
was slow. 'l'llis nettled the general
and put him in a bad humor and
it annoyed him to have command
ers to ask when they were to land.
Capt. Grimes of the Second artil
lery was particularly anxious and
made several pbinted illusions to
the fact that he was ready to land.
Finally he came to Shatter and
“General, my battery is all
ready to go ashore.”
“All right,” said Shatter,
“throw your guns overboard and
let them swim ashore.”

national Consideration of the
Effect* of Smoking on Hoys
And You nu Men.
By Chao. H. Btovai.i., M. D., Treasurer and
(B-neral Manner of thr J. C. Ayrr Cos.,
I would give tlx* following rea
sons for opposing the smoking of
cigarettes ly boys under twenty
one years of age:
I. It lessens the natural ap
petite for food and injuries diges
tion.—Any close observer will
know at once how true is this
statement. The boy who smokes
has a bad digestion and a poor
appetite. Because of this inter
ference with appetite and digestion ,
the food is not properly digested
and assimilated, cellular activity
is checked, and the growth and
development of the body seriously
interfered with by this early poi
2. It Seriously Affects the
Nervous System. —We often hear
j about the “tobacco heart” of the
| adult. If tobacco is strong enough
j to affect the beating of the adult
I heart, how much stronger must
lie its effect on the heart of a young I
person, long before tissues have
become fixed. The rush of blood
to the head, the dizziness, the
unsteady beating of the heart,
the distressing dreams—all show
how seriously is the nervous sys
But a more serious charge can
; lie brought against it under this
j heading. This effect tin the ner
! vous system is sufficient to pro
jduce the must marked changes in
the mental activity. Recent
statements from the University of
Michigan, Northwestern Univer
sity, Yale College, Union College,
together with scores of other in
stitutions and hundreds of the
most eminent teachers of the
icountry all testify to the fact,
that, cigarette smoking interferes
with scholarship. If it interferes
with the scholarship of young
men over twenty-one years of age,
how much more seriously must it
interfere with the mentai activites
of t hose under this age !
8. Il Lowers the Moral Tone. —
Another most serious charge
against the cigarette is that it
lowers t h<‘ moral tone. Boys who
would not toil a lie on any other
matter, not fora fortune, our best
noblest boys, do not seem to hesi
tate a moment to tell any kind of
a falsehood in orker to keep from
their parents the fact that they
are smoking cigarettes. They
hide the cigarettes. They smoke
them away from home. They trv
in every way to conceal the truth.
Indeed, they will do all manner
of things in order to deceive those
who are nearest and dearest to
4. It Creates a Craving for
Strong Drinks. —There has been a
great deal of discussion on this
point, but 1 am convinced that
statement is logically true. The
hot smoke from thecigarette tends
j to make the mouth and throat dry
and creates a peculiar sinking
sensation. But with the moral
tone lowered and the mental power
weakened, the desire to yield to
the first temptation is strength
ened, because of the slimsv
excuse that the hoy must have
something to wet his throat. And
so it goes on, from bud to worse.
In other words, the boy who smokes
more easily accepts an invitation
to a treat than one who does not
f>. It is a Filthy and Offensive
Habit. —No matter how steadily
tin' boy may do his work, sooner
or later his clothing becomes sat
urated with the odor of tobacco.
And let me add right here, one of
the most inexplicable things in
this world is that a well-dressed,
highly-accomplished young lady
will sit by the side of a young
man in a carriage or street-ear,
or will walk by his side in the
street, and submit to inhaling this
most offensive odor—bad at all
times, but of course increased a
thousand-fold when the smoking
machine is in full operation.
0. It Is Expensive,—Boys
THE BARNESVILLE NEWS-GAZETTE, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1902
should not be taught how to use
lessly expend money. Parents,
friends, and teachers should give
directly the opposite advice.
7. It Is Unlawful —ln nearly
every State in the Union there
are most stringent laws forbiding
the furnishing of cigarettes or
tobacco to minors under a certain
age. In most of these States there
are laws against selling to such
minors. Take the District of
Columbia: we find that 257 phy
sicians, 524 officers and teachers
lof the public school, the trustees
of the public schools, and 86
pastors of churches petitioned
Congress for the passage
of a bill prohibiting the selling,
giving, or furnishing tobacco to j
any person under sixteen years of
Believing that smoking cigarettes j H
injurious to Imth mind nnd t>ody,
thereby unfitting young men for
their best work; therefore, after
thin date we will not employ any
young mail under 21 years of age
who smokes Cigarettes
J C. Aybk Cos.
8. Cigarette Smoking Not
Allowed. —It seems to me that
i these reasons are sufficient for the
action taken in posting throughout
our buildings the above announce
ment. A close observation for
many years among the boys em
ployed by this company has shown
that those who are most energetic,
active, alert, quick, spry, do not
smoke; while the listless, lazy,
dull, sleepy, uninteresting and un
interested boys are those who
smoke.— [Reprint from the Busi
ness World, May, 1902.]
ALL MOTHERS KEEP IT HANDY.
“My mother suffered a long time from
distressing pains and general ill health
due primarily to indegestion,” says L.
W. Spalding, Yarona, Mo. “Twoyears
ago 1 got her to try Kodol. She grew
better at once and now at the age of
seventy-six, eats ai ything she wants,
remarking that she tears no had effects
as she has her bottle of Kodol handy.”
Don’t waste time doeortoring symptons
go after the case. If your stomach is
soundyour health will be good. Kodol
rests the stomach and strengthens the
body by digesting your food. It is
nature's own tonic.

POISONING THE SYSTEM.
It is through the bowels that the body
is cleansed of impurities. Constipa
tion keeps these poisons in the system,
causing headache, dulness and melan
cholia at first, then unsightly eruptions
and finally serious illness unless a
remedy is applied. PeWitt’s Little
Early Kisers prevent this trouble by
stimulating the liver and promote easy
healthy action of the bowels. These
little pills do not act violently but by
strengthening the bowels enable them
to perform their own work. Never
gripe or distress.

Idea of Old Age.
The idea of old age is relative,
depending on one’s point of view.
A New Yorker, imprisoned in a
i “tonsorial studio,” fell victim to
the garroulness of the “artists”
executioner, and was informed
that the latter, recently married,
was about to set forth on a visit
to the old country.
“1 suppose you’ll take your
wife along," suggested the victim
“No, sir. I'm not going for
pleasure this time. I want to see
mv father before he dies.”
“Isn't he well?”
“0, lie's well enough; but one
never can tell what may happen,
lie's getting along in years.”
“How old is he?"
