NEW EVIDENCE ON THE TOBACCO QUESTION.
The consideration of tobacco and its dangers
has heretofore been largely based on the
amount of nicotin contaiued in tho smoke.
But thoro are other products of tobacco which
must share tho responsibility. Among these
are carbon monoxicd gas, prussic acid, furfural
and some other?. Although all of these com
pounds admittedly arc poisonous, thoir dangor
depends on the quantities in which they are
tnken. lleceutly investigations have been
made of some of these toxic products, and tho
results are of considerable interest. Tho fact
that the action of certain kinds of tobacco has
bcon attributed to tho prussic acid in their
smoke has induced the Wurzburg hygionist,
Prof. K. B. Lohnnnu, to to investigate the
charge. ITo has found that the amount of
this compound produced depends eomowhat
on tho rate at which the tobacco is smoked.
Tho slower the current of air through a cigar,
the smaller is the amount of prussic acid form
ed. Tho entire amount found, however, is too
small to account for tho eft' jets. So far tho
burden of the blamo for tho ill effects of smok
ing would appear to rest ou nicotin. Investi
gations mado by tho London Lancet indicate
that the ordinary cheap cigarot contains tho
least nicotin in the smoke and tho pipe tho
most, the cigar occupying an intermediate
position. Assuming, then, that nicotin is tho
essentially injurious substauco in tobacco, the
cigarot would appear to be tho least harmful
form, provided that tho amount of tobacco
consumed was no greater in this form than in
Tho general hnpieion, however, is that
cigaret-smoking is the most pernicious form
of indulgence in tobacco. This might bo ac
counted for in part by the facta that tho form
of the cigaret makes it possible for young
persons to indulge iu it when they would not
smoke cigars or pipes, that in older peisons
it lends itself to overindulgence and that tho
smoke may bo inhaled with less irritation and,
therefore, that moro of the products may bo
absorbed iuto. tho system. Further investiga
tions indicate that the most injurious forms of
-smoking are not those in which nicptiu pre
vails but those in which thoro is a larger pro
portion of furfuial. Furfural is about fifty
., times as poisonous as oidinary alcohol. There
is a probability that tho least harmful tobacco
will turn out to bo that which yields a mini
mum of furfural iu tho smoke. Although tho
$ amount of nicotin present in tho cheaper
"grades of cigarettos is practically negligible,
tho amount of furfural appears to bo sufficient
in itsolf to account for tho bad effects attrib
ute to cigaret-smoking. Tho use of tobacco
in its various tonus is so gonerm mat tno sun,
jecl. is of almost universal interest. Tho
Journal of tho American Medical Association
thinks that the smoker is entitled to know tho
dangers nud tho safest methods of using
tobacco, while cJucators aud all who have
u anything to do with tho young, whether by
example or by precept, will appreciate scionti
flo facts with which to back up wise deduc
tions from otfporionco.

WHAT THE KNOW-HOW.FARMING DOES
Jim Hill tho ompiro builder of the North
west, while quite a fluent orator, does not
always depend upon speech in his efforts to be
convincing. Now he has appropriated the
motto of Missouri as applied to empire build
ing by 'Showing 'em." When ho wants to
convince people that the Great Northern road
pierces tho bread basket of the world ho takes
a trainload of wheatgrowers over it; when ho
wants to convince tho world that ho has a big
corner ou scenic America in Glacier Na
tional Park he takes a trainload of newspaper
men out to see it, and when ho wants to toll
tho people of his own country that they ought
to bo better fanners ho doesn't tell ,eny he
The government aud tho various states like
to boast of their agricultural farms, where the)
work out the theory and principlosof farming.
But Jim Hill goes them one better; he builds
demonstration faims throughout tho vast do
main ho has been so powerful an agent in de
veloping, and puts the theories to piactical
work rijiht next to tho man he wants to con
viuce. Sometimes thoy toll us how mauy
'show 'em" f-irms Jim Hill owns aud operates,
but as the great Northwest is uot always vora
cious when it gets to talking about Jim Hill
wo forbear to give tho figures.
For iustauco, tho averago wheat yield on
nineteen of Jim Hill's "show 'em" farms was
thirty-two bushels to tho acre, while on the
adjoining farms farmed tho old way tho aver
age yield was but tweuty-two bushels to the
Down in Minnesota on tho "show 'em" farm
Jim Hill's book-farmers raised forty-four
bushels of barley to tho aero, whilo tho neigh
bors on tho same kind of land raised but
thirty-two bushels. Over in North Dakota tho
"show 'em" farmers raised fifty bushels to tho
acre, whilo tho farmers next door raised but
twenty-four bushels. .
There's no use talking after such figures as
theso, for oven tho silver-tongued Mr. Hill
could not put up an argument that is half so
convincing as his "show 'em" farms have
douo. Thoy talk louder thau words as to
what modern agriculture means to the
farmer, and it is a kind of talking that every
mau un 'orstands. Commercial Tribune.
