Cigarettes are an awful thing.
The Cigarette Habit.
(Milton Swearingen's essay. Prize
winner in fifth grade.)
A cigarette is pulverized tobacco,
wrapped in tissue paper and stuck to
gether. A match is struck to start the
tobacco to burning-then the boy
puts this into his mouth and draws
the smoke and inhales it and blows
it out through his nose.
Of course this smoke is very in
jurious to the lungs, because of the
deadly poison called nicotine, which
causes the lungs to be impaired and
soon cannot throw off the germs.
This soon develops into tuberculosis
which means death.

makes his grade in one year for he

A boy that begins to smoke cigar
ettes, or to use tobacco in any form,
is making a dwarf of himself and will
never be a strong man. physically
or mentally. A cigarette smoker can
not stand diseases for his constitu
tion is broken.
The cigarette is an unclean habit,
and it stains the teeth just as it does
the hands. The clothes of a smoker
smell like tobacco.
The cigarette habit is a time-was
ter and expensive, too. The business
man will not employ a smoker for he
knows the .smoker will waste time.

It seems to be a growing habit for
a great many soldiers who did not
smoke before to come out of the

was stimulating. But they would have
been better without the stimulant.

If a boy will not yield to the temp

the manufacture of the cigarette.

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
Insist on Genuine Ford Parts
Imitation "Ford" parts are being sold by many mail order houses, down-town
stores and garages to unsuspecting Ford owners as "Ford" parts. But they are
not Genuine Ford parts made by the Ford Motor Company. They vare made by
concerns who have no connection whatsoever with the Ford Motor Company.
These imitation parts are not even made from the same grade of steel, or under
the same formulas used by the Ford Company. They are counterfeit parts.
Tests have shown them to break when the genuine Ford parts didn't even bend,
and they generally are from thirty-five to one hundred per cent lower in quality.
The Authorized Ford Dealer is your protection. As such, we handle nothing
but the Genuine Ford parts. They are made from the famous Ford Vanadium
Steel and each part-according to its use-is heat-treated ir? the way that will
give it the longest wearing qualities. Every part is the same as its duplicate in
your Ford car or Ford truck.
Our stock of parts is complete. And our Ford garage and Ford mechanics
are at your service at all times. Drive in when replacements or repairs for your
Ford car may be necessary. Save your car and also your money.
