Forgan, the canny Scotch banker,
will have to cry louder for Mrs! E. H.

SHORT ONES
Now that Germans are inventing
food from air the politicians may not
find talk so cheap.
A Chicago woman sold her hus
band for $500; and the other women
are wondering what husband in the
orld is worth that much.
Let's pair Mount Lassen with the
Culebra cut and let them fight it out
It will be observed, however, that
in this crisis President Wilson did not
call the inventor of peanut butter to
the aid of his country.
Both sides find them the Balking
nations.
Thaw is free, but don't imagine for

A STEADY JOB

I THE PUBLIC FORUM
PRAISES FORD'S BOOK. Most
people know of Henry Ford as the
man who pays $5 a day to his em
ployes. Yet he has other excellent
qualifications. He is a wonderful hu
manitarian, vitally interested in hu
manity and for no selfish purpose. g
If he sees people indulge in anjL
habit or vice that is injurious to them
it pains him very much. He has seen
the injury done to young men and
women from the practice of smoking
cigarettes, so he set about to con
ceive a method of reasoning with
these young people by publishing a
little booklet entitled "The Case of
the Little White Slaver."
This contains the opinions and
analysis of people in different walks
of life, some condemning and others
defending the cigarette. But I no
tice that most of the defending ar
guments come from the tobacco
trust
Unlike fake reformers, Mr. Ford
avoids trying to force his opinions
down the public throat and presents
the matter to the people fair and
square and let them reach their own
conclusions. The book contains a
'letter from Thos. Edison that is a
study in brevity and directness. Here
it is.
"Friend Ford The injurious agent
in cigarettes comes principally from
the burning paper wrapper. The
substance thereby formed is called
acrolein. It has a violent action on
the nerve centers, producing degen
eration of the cells of the brain, which
is quite rapid among boys. Unlike
most narcotics, this degeneration Is d
permanent and uncontrollable. I em-
ploy no person who smokes cigar
ettes. Thos. A. Edison."
I believe the book, is free to those
interested. It contains no auto ads
or press agent bunk. James Mc
Guire, 125 Throop St
