The following lines are Col.
Ingersoll 's tribute to tobacco:
"These leaves make friends and
celebrate with gentle rites the
vows of peace. They have given
consolation to the world. They
are the companions ot the lone-;
ly, the friends of the imprison
ed, of the exile, of workers in
mines, of fellers of forests, of
sailors Cxi Lite deep seas. They are
givers of strength and calm to
the vexed and wearied minds of
those who build with thought and
brahi fhi temples of the soul.
They tell of hope and rest. They
smooth the wrinkled brows of
care; (Live fear and strange, mis
