YOU CAN BE CURED WHILE USING IT.
The habit of using tobacco grows on a
man until grave disoesed conditions are
produced. Tobacco causes cancer of the
mouth and stomach; dyspepsia; loss of
memlory; nervous affections; congestion of
the retIna; and wasting of the optic
nerve, resulting in impairment of visIon,
even to the extent of blindness; dizziness
or vertigo; tobacco asthmna; nightly sutfo
cation; dull pain in the region of the
heart, followed later by sharp pains, pal
pitation and weakened pulse, result
ing in fatal heart disease. It also causes
loss of vitality.
QUIT BEFORE IT I§ TOO LATE.
To quit suddenly is too severe a shock
to the system, as tobacco-to an inveter

Effectively Posed.
In the days when daguerreotypes
were first introduced the nervous
ness of being "taken" must have re
duced the average sitter to a condi
tion of submission to the operator.
Not so with a certain New England
judge of whom Mr. J. A. Willard
tells a story. He had all the airy
self command of modern posers be
fore the camera. In the summer of
1846 daguerreotyping was still an
experiment, and the artists were
willing to take pictures of noted per
sons to hang outside their doors as
a sample of their work.
A gentleman walked into the room
of such an artist one day and said:
"Mr. - , I am Mr. Justice - of
the justices' court. I understand you
take pictures of distinguished men
to exhibit to the public."
"Yes, sir. Be kind enough to take
a chair. How would you like yours
taken?"
"I should like to be taken as in
my courtroom."
"Assume your attitude, sir, and
tell me when you are ready."
He placed himself to his satisfao
tion, and looking very stern said,
pointing 1lis finger in the direction
of the supposed criminal: "Prisoner,
where- Take me now, sir."
He was taken, and the artist then
said, "How otherwise would you
like to be taken?"
"I should like to be taken in the
bosom of my family. John, bring
me the Bible." The artist gave him
a Bible. He opened it and said:
"We will now read the ninety sec
ond psalm. Take me now, sir."
He was taken, and both pictures
were after hung at the entrance
door.
Drove an Eighteen-in-hand.
Some years ago a well known New
Yorker, one of thd Livi,pgston fami.
ly, who had lived for many years in
Florence, used to drive six-in-hand
there every afternoon. He was a
very eccentrio individual and gradu
ally increased the numnber of his
horses until strangers in Florence
would note with amazement every
afternoon on the Casoine a white
headed gentleman driving an ex
traordindtry procession of horses har
nessed together, two and two, some.
times as many as 18. It was one of
the sights of Florence. Old Mr. Liv
ingston tooled his team safely for a
few years, but finally they bolted
and ran away. Nothing could stop
18 horses, and the smashup was
something terrific.. After that the
authorities of Florence forbade Mr.
Livingston to drive more than four,
and in disgust he shook the dust of
Florence from his feet and never re
turned.-San Francisco Argonaut.

IMPROVING ONESELF.
fead Aioud For a Few Motlients Eact
Day and Look After Your Speech.
Self improvement suggests at once
thought of self. Why? Because if
we are to be of any value to each
other in this world we must know
our capibilities. A lady of limited
education not long since was heard
to say: "I cannot accomplish much.
I am not educated and might just aS
well give up ever trying to do any
thing." The fact that she realized
her lack of ability to perform some
thing beyond the ordinary was a
long stop toward improvement, yet
to give up or despair is not only fool.
ish, but actually weak. Where there's
a will there's a way. Every well
balanced person surely has the will
and should therefore make the way.
Make iup your mind to do a thing
and at once set about it, and here
seems wise the suggestion that a few
acquaintances unite forces and in a
quiet and informal manner'meet to
gether and read and discuss good
books, as reading is the first and
best means toward self improvement
in a literary sense. You need not be
an elocutionist to do this. Read to
your friends as you would relate an
occurrence or converse upon any
reasonable topio.
Read, then lot your auditors in
turn ask questions, and if any real
thinking is done it will not be at all
difficult to arrive at a clear under
standing of the subject in hand. To
be able to listen attentively is an ac
complishment, and one should, if
lacking in that respect, cultivate the
habit, as there is no better help to
ward a good memory. Bring your
mind to bear directly upon the work
before you. Think and digest, and
you will in a short season of such
diligent practice be the one ihost
agreeably surprised at the good re
sults. By reading good English with
the idea of self improvement you
will accustom yourself to the use of
the same in your conversation.
Carelessness in speech is inexcusable
in any person making a pretension
to refinement. The young girl who
uses slang not only retards her own
improvement, but her influence is
detrimental to those with whom she
comes in contact, whether in the
home, school or workshop.
It does not require any effort to be
commonplace, but it is commendable
in every one, no matter what their
opportunities may have been or sta
tion in life may be, to desire to at
fain to a higher standard. We owe
it to ourselves to so improve each
hour that we become ooniscious of
the value of time and should fully
realize that it is never too late to
learn. To think otherwise is a mis
take. Select a book by advice of
some one who is capable of under
standing your needs in such direc
tion. Profit by any and every well
meant suggestion, and you will reap
a rich harvest in due time. Read
for improvement, and if you are in
the right spirit you will be highly
entertained also.
With an improvement of self will
come respect and due appreciation
of those about us.
Waste not even time, for if we
wish to overcome ignorance and
progress in life we must contract
habits of industry. Make the best
use of the opportunity before you
and reflect are you really inclining
toward self improvement. If you
are, you will pass the good advice
along.-Ladios' Every Saturday.'
A Grim Wager.
Wagers have sometimes taken a
grim form. It is credibly recorded
that in the last century a wager was
laid for one of a party of gay revelers
to enter Westminster abbey at the
hour of midnight. He was to enter
one of the vaults beneath the abbey,
and in proof of his having been there
he was to stick a fork into a coffi8n
which had recently been deposited
there.
He accomplished his object and
was returning in triumph when he
felt himself suddenly caught and
was so overcome with terror that he
fell in a swoon. His companions,
not being able to account for his
long absence, found him in this con
dition. The fork which he had fast
ened into the coffin had caught an4
pinned his long cloak and so occa
sioned a fit of terror which nearly
proved fatal.
Trlvial Thipea Uppermost.
Some months ago a man went
down to the river to commit suicide,
and when he began to write a final
message to his wife he could think
of nothing to say except that.some
butter which he had ordered would
be found at a certain grocery. His
message bears out a certain fact dis
covered by realists-that in the su.
preme and soul terrifying moments
of life the most ridiculous and trivial
things often come uppermost in the
mind.-Philadelphia Press.
