Tho constant chewinjr of gutn.says
tho Now York Sun, has produced weak
minds In fourteen ca-s of young girls
now under treatment, the constant move
ment of tho mouth causing too great a
strain on the head.
These cases aro extreme results of tho
gum-chewing habit, but cynical critics
assert that they tndleato what tho coun
try is coming to unloss tho pernicious
habit is curbed. The cynics point out
that no fancy of tho American people
has bc-como such a crazo as tho publlo
Indulgence in tho gum-chow Ing habit,
and that no crazo has flourished so in
the faco of public odium. The habit, as
a matter of cold fact, has reached a
stago now that makes it impossible for a
New Yorker to go to tho theater or
church, or enter tho street cars or rail
way train or walk on a tashlonablo
promenade without meeting men and
women whoso aws are working with
tho activity of the gum-chewing victim.
And the spectacle Is maintained in tho
faco oi frequent reminders that gum-
chewing, especially in public, Is an es
sentially vulgar indulgence that not
only shows bad breeding, but spoils a
pretty countenance and detracts from
tho dignity of thoso who practice the
habit. Cynics who observe it havo
sighed for the return of tho sturdy dis
cipline of their youth, when the school
master used to spank everybody caught
chewing gum in public.
This is ono ray of hope for the de
spairing cynics. It is found in the
assertion by those who profess to know
all about the chewing gum business
that tho present prevalence of the habit
is only the climax that precedes its
"Tho salo of chewing gum," said
Druggist Charles J. Perry, "has ap
parently arrived at the stage that tho
trade calls 'coming to a standstill. ' Tho
next step will probably be retrogressive.
Gum chewing is sometimes beneficial,
even though in public it it a very vulgar
and unseemly practice. Chewing gum

there was talk among gum chew era of
organizing a boycott against the ma
chines. The kickers say that tho ma
chines are constantly out of order, and
that the manufacturer, who has mado a
huge fortuno out of the gum thoy aro
supplied with, takes no measures to
reimburse unfortunato patrons whoso
coppers aro ruthlossly embezzled by tho
machines. Agents como around empty

It is doubtful if any business in the
country yields such an enormous profit
on the capital invested as the manuiact-
urc or chewing gum when carried on on
a. large scale. Some idea of this profit
may be obtained from the statement of
a New York druggist that tho sticks of
tolugum, that contain flvo small blocks
of gum, and aro sold for fivo cents a
stick, cost less than half a cent to man
ufacture, and that, with tinfoil and all,
tho article does not cost a cent. Two
hundred per cent, profit is not a bad
thing when tho trade runsinto hundreds
of thousands of dollars a year.

ifum the cheapest.
"There is really no such tiling now
adays in trade," a druggist said recent
ly, "as pure spruco gum. You will
havo to go out into the country and
gather tho gum yourself to get it pure.
'Ihe manufactured articlo sold in largo
cities iv adulterated a mixture of glu
cose and licorice, with precious little of
the original spruco gum. Tho genuine
articlo is too expensive, and tho supply
wouldn't bo equal to the demand. Tho
whito gum 1 made of paraluno as a
basis, with glucoso and a little bit of
cheap gum thrown in."
The gum that is in general use is
made of tolu or gum chicle or gum
catechu, wk.i llcorico and glucose- and
some flavoring extract, it is boiled
and rolled out in great heaps, and cut
up into blocks by machinery. Gum
arable was used formerly to give it con
sistency, hutllttlo of it is now employed
because it is too expensive. Cum of
turpentine is substituted. Tho effort of
tbe manufacturers of gums is always, of
course, to cut down toa minimum tbecost
of production, and ho secures substi
tutes for the moit costly ingredients
wherever it can hj djn". It does not
follow by any inrans, that theso substi
