July*, Wl.-ly. Xtf. S, BXAHW! ly aud is to are of iu the to of the to in Haw It Affects tbe Beys. Tbe following is taken from tbe report of Prof. McGarrab, Snpt., of tbe public ecboole of Anthony, Kansas : Although not a part of this re* port, permit me to speak of wbat I consider the greatest hindrance to onr school work at tbe present times. I refer to tbe use of tobacco, especially cigarettes. Let me give a few ideas from a man of recognised ability, honesty and influence. He speaks about as follows : "After makiug a study of sev eral hundred boys through a pe riod of ten years, I give ouly ob served facts. "First: Boys that begin using tobacco at an early age are stunted physically and never reach a nor mal bodily development. "Second: I have not found a single case in which the boy did not suffer from oue of tbe following conditions; indigestion, impaired taste, defective eyesight, dull bearing, nervous affections, diseases of the heart. "Third: Tobacco destroys tbe ability to apply one's self to study, and prevents bis comprehending bis lessnus. The mental faculties seem to be iu a stupor, tbe will power is weakened aud depraved, and there is but little use for tbe teacher to tty to arouse tbe dormant, paralyzed energies, or to interest or foster tbe fagged desire. I have not met a pupil that is addicted to this habit who will go through a single day's work and bave good les sous. I have never had one whose scholarship or record was good. Iu the regular examinations for promotion nearly every one failed. "Fourth : These pupils are con stant subjects for discipline, anti are not truthful, practice decep tion, cannot be depended upon aud lose self respect. "Fifth : Tbe use of tobacco by one who bas reached full mental und physical development before the habit was formed may uot show tbe effecta for several years, but uot so with tile boy ; aud the younger the mure disasterous the effect upon the mental power. "Sixth: Users of tobacco frank ly admit that it causes thirst. The nerves of tuste are half palsied aud cause intense thirst. Water is too insipid. The liquid in order to satisfy this tormenting thirst, must be pungent or stimulating. "Seventh : The reasou cigarettes are so cheap is that they arc made from the cheapest grade of tobao They are more harmful than tobacco in any other form, because of tbe drugs used iu making them. Thu principal of these is opium, which imparts a sweet flavor, which gives a soothing effect that iu a short time ohtuina control of the smoker. The more cigarettes oue smokes the more he desires to smoke. We all know the effect of opium when used iu any other form, aud it is not different iu this." 1 quote tbe above, uot to pro voke any controversy, hut be cause, after a careful study of the situation, I think that if some of the parents could see lis I do the magnitude of the evil, they would not rest day or night until all that lies within their power to do, lias been doue to bring about differ ent conditions. My observations loud me to tho following conclusions regarding the use of tobacco, aud more cspeciully cigarettes, by tbe boys now in scboul : First : There are many that are being ruined by tbe use of cigs rettes whoso parents thiuk they never use tobucco aud are puzzled to kuow why their boys are uot as interested aud do nut make as great progress ns they have made in tbe past. Second: Those who made the best recitations sud received the highest grades in the lust exaitd ustiou are not cigarette smokers. Third: Some of those who re ceived tbe highest grades in tbeir classes last year are uuable to do so this year because of tbe exces sive use of cigarettes during the summer aud fall; aud will uever take bigb rank agaiu pules* they cease (his habit very soon. Fourth ; Those boyabrho require (lie most dioipline end hare the all in it to the his his aud the lar a alio uot in of and it poorest lessons day by day, nearly all nae tobacco. Fifth : There are boye now in acbool who wonder why they do certain tbinga they really did not intend to do, and why after doing tbeir otmost to get n lesson, they can neither understand it nor re member it. They are very mush surprised at times that wbat they thought waa well leaned, aeema bazy and refnaea to be expreeead in words, wheu they eome to recite it in claaa. Sixth : Onr boya who nae ciga rettes are almost incapable of home study. They ezperlenoa either n stupid dullness or a nervous un rest ; which almost compels them to seek some excitement down town. They are incapable of earn est, tong-continued effort in any direction. faille Witnesses. Some rather anosnal witnesses were on tbe stand in a Cincinnati court the other day. They were two large mastiffs whose owner ship was in question. The wit nesses for both sides having been heard, Dr. Bnck, one of the liti gants, asked permission to intro duce two more witnesses. The caart consented, and tbe two dogs were nshered into coart, and into the staud. «The doctor asked that they be sworn, and when tbe as tonished magistrate addressed them and told them to bold up tbeir right bands, they promptly stood up oil tbeir biud legs uud raised their right paws. "Hector, where is your master f" asked the court. One of tbe doge immedi ately walked to Dr. Buck, gave n short, quick bark, and returned to his place. "Where is Danet" asked the court. The dog turned his head, looked at his compauiou, aud gave a similar bark. The same questions were tbeu put to the other dog, who returned simi lar answers. The court suspended further proceedings and rendered a judgment iu favor of Dr. Buok. Never use a lady's name in an improper place, at an improper time or iu mixed company ; uever make assertions about her that you think untrue, or allusions that alio herself would blush to hear. When you meet with men who do uot scruple to use woman's name in a reckless manner, sbuu them ; they are the very worst members of the community. Many a good and worthy womnu's character baa been forever mined and her heart brukeu by a tie, manufactured by some villain and repeated where it should uot bare been, aud in preseuce of those whose little judgment could uot deter them from circulating tbe foul and bragging report. A slander is soon propagated, and tbe auiallest tiling derogatory to a woman's clmracter will fly ou the wiuga of the wind aud magnify as it circu lates, uutil its uioustrous weight crushes the poor unconscious victim. Respect the name of woman; your mother aud sisters sro women; us you would bare their lives uiieuihittcred by tbe slander ous tongue, lived Hie ill your own word nmy bring upon tbe mother, the wife or sister of some other fellow creature.— Ex. The Uaiversai Mosquito. "1 have becu as far south at Patagonia, and as far north as lee land," said Cspt. Frank llowero, now at the Laclede, "and I bave yet to flud a country that is not infested by mosquitoes. It is tbe general opiuion that these pests are ooufliieit to warm conutries, but that is a mistake. In the short summers of Iuehiud they fairly swarui, aud a man may get ail the bilee be oan take oare of in the Straits of Magellan, if he goea there at the proper time. Mexico wee a terra Incognita to tho Moe quits until a few years ago, bat lie is plentiful enough there now. It is said that they were imported, with much other undesirable live slock, from the United States. If that be true I do uot wondav at the dislike with which the doeau dents of the Moutesnmas regard the Americaus. — Bt. Louis (Hobs Democrat.
