'The Harm in the Use of Tobac
(Best essay written by a pupil of
graded school in Edgefield county
won by Lewis Moss of Trenton.
The prize was $5.00 in gold given
by Edgefield county W. C. T. U.)
Tobacco is a plant that is thought
to have originated in America and
was taken to Euiope by Raleigh's
men. Now its use has spread all
over the world even to the rudest
savages. It is smoked in the pipe,
cigar, .cigarette, and pome men
seem to relish it as a cow does her
cud. It contains about three per
cent of nicotine, the most deadly
poison in the world except prussic
acid. The pipe is horrible and
deadly enough, but the cigaret is
by far the most dangerous form,
for besides the three main added
drugs in cigarette tobacco (sugar,
arsenic and salt petre) several other
poisons added to the paper "to make
it good." Chewing tobacco is dip
ped in a licorice solution.
"If tobacco were more harmful,
less harm would be done by it."
This quotation tells a great truth,
for the harm comes on slowly but
surely-so much so that the user is
unconscious of it. The three main
added drugs in cigarette tobacco,
when burned give off a poisonous
gas that is highly injurious to the
lungs. The poison passes through
the thin lining of the airsacks after
severely injuring them (the airsacks)
aud harms the entire system. The
first athlete to drop out of a race
is usually a drinker or smoker, for
smoking is bad for the wind. A
common smoker's desease is "smok
er's sore throat."
Chewing does most harm to the
heart, for the juices from the tobac
co pass into the stomach, thence
through the intestinal walls (which
are very thin) aud injure the heart
as the smoke does the lungs. The
result is "heart burn," and the to
bacco heart or fatted organ beatings
weakly and irregularly, sometimes
too fast and vice versa. The heart
being thus weakened causes indi
gestion. This trouble usually stop
with discontinuance of the tobacco
The brain and nervous system are
more harmed by tobacco than any
part of the body. Tobacco in
small amounts soothes, or rather in
tends to soothe, a worried or excited,
person. But at the same moment
it makes him forget business and
idle away his time. When the
first effects have passed, unreet fol
lows, and more tobacco is used to
quiet it. Thus the- drug habit be
gins. In a short time the brain be
comes very active. If the use is
continued very much longer the
brain becomes s? active that the
user cannot sleep, and the nerves
lose control of thc muscles. A
murderer has been known to be"
freed because he was insane from
cigarettes. Students from the ranks
of tobacco users stand less chance
of making their grade or winning
some mental contest than the oppo
site. Cancer is often caused by to
bacco, and one of the symptoms of
hookworm is to crave for it. It
makes us less endurable (tobacco
does) and mak^p us more liable to
This drug has an astounding ef

drinking cases are caused by tobac
To the younger boys it does far
greater harm than to adults. Be

Tobacco often debars a yoong
man from securing work at many
large business houses. In fact,
throughout the business world he
stands less chance than the non-user.
Tobacco users lose consideration
for the rights of others. Yellow
fingers and stained teeth are un
pleasant sights and many persons
are sickened by tobacco smoke,
which poisons the air around, in
flames the linings of the eyes and
nose and deadens the nerves of both
organs. Besides, the habit of spit
ting which many users have is a fil
thy, unsanitary habit that helps
spread disease. Tobacco effects us
