Col . Robert, Iogersoll should have said in
an interview ia Chicago that, ' farmers
have j jbt as much right to the protection
of the government as the merchants, man

they have, but wby could not Robert have
said that much in his republican cam
paign speeches of 1-8S4. Had the thought
not occurred to him then? But then the
the farmers don't ask any protection from
government. All they ask is that they
shall not be discriminated against by
legislation and be compelled to pay tri
bute to the manufacturers or any otter
class. Do you see?
Some of our cit zns are wondering
what can be the cause of so many deaths
from heart failure. We cin scare ly take
up a newspaper that we cannot find re
corded numbers of deaths from heart
troubles. Secretary Windom is another
case in point. And in this connection I
would slate that an experiment was made
a few months ago upon thirty-eight stu
ck nts of average health who had been
using tobacco for a period ranging from
two years to two months. Twenty-seven
showed severe injury to the constitution
and insuSleient growth; thirty-two, the
existence of irregularity of the heart's
action, disordered stonv.chs. cough and a
craving for alcohol; thirteen had inter
mittency of the pulse, and one had con
sumption. After they had abandoned
the use of tobacco, within six months'
time one half were free from their former
symptom', and the remainder had recov
ered by the end of the year.
