THE HARTFORD HERALD I'AOE TilllRB. m & m y x i ! rf. . r li ? . E AND DRINK BILL Is Something Astounding To Think About. REACHES THE ENORMOUS SUM Of $2,700,000,000 a Year Luxuries That Cost the Nation Dearly. KKW I'lCJUUKS OX Till: SU1MKCT Frank Fayant shows that, tho smoking nnd drinking bill at tho ' American people now reaches tho, enormous llguro of $2,700,000,000 , a year. "Since tho tlmo when Columbus braved tho unknown seaB In search of tho treasuro of the InO'des, man has dug out of the earth $15,000, 000,000,000' of gold," he says. "Since tho panic of 1907 the Ameri can people have spent Tor alcohol and tobacco $15,000,000,000. Or, to put these two statements in tho form of a mathematical equation; the product of 420 years 'of human toll, sacrlfico and bloodshed, of dar ing discovery and exploration of continental wilderness, of cruel wars of aggression and conquest, of wonderful pnglneerlng triumphs, In the never-ending search for tho pre cious metal, equals six years easy going expenditure of the American pebplo for the weed that soothes and the cup that cheers. "How much Is $2,700,000,000? If. a thousand years uclure 'the time of Ifoccs the Lawgiver, the ancient Kgyptlans had begun hoarding a treasure of gold at tho rato of a dol lar a minute, and If ever since then every minute, fluy -and night, the'so thousands of years the accu mulation of this treasure had con tinued, the golden hoard would to day be 500 years short of the $2, 700,000,000 we spent In one year for alcohol and tobacco;" Mr. Fayant says that tho bulk of this money is spent by wage-earners. It Is equal to the earnings of more than 4,000,000 workers. It Is two and a half times the wages of all tho men on tho Titllrpa'ds. It Is fourteen times the weut pay roll of tho Steel Corporation. Sir George Palsli, tho English economist, estimates that the Ameri can people are saving 'tho great sum f $5,000,000,000 ti year that is, that wo are putting this money Into now railroads,, factories, farms, homes and other productive Invest ments, and thus adding to tho na tional wealth. Dut wo are spend ing this sum every 2M months for tobacco and alcohol. Our enormous savings bank hoard is the wonder and envy of Europe, Tmt wo spent in 20 months as mucli money for to bacco and alcohol as we have laid by in tho savings bnnks in all these years of prosperity nnfi thrift. Ev ery month Ave spend more than wo add to our bank savings in a Whole year. Moro than half tho total wealth of tho United States Is 'Incorporated in manufacturing and Industrial companies, banlts and other tlnan clal institutions, railroads, tolo graphs, telephones and other pubflc . service corporations. Tho combined profits of nil these Imslnesses are less than tho expenditure for smok ing and drinking. Tho $27,000, 400,000 annual outlay Is greater than the total cost of all our Gov ornmont, from tho President's sal ary down to tho cross-roads school house. It Is three times tho nation al debt. It Is moro thnn all Europe is spending for war and preparation for war. "If our habits do not change," says tho writer, "wo shall consume more alcohol and tobacco In tho next 35 years than could bo purchas ed for tho entire "wealth of the United States to-day tho total val- uo of everything possessed by every body" from tho Atlantic to the Pa cific." A quarter of tho $27,000,000 is pent for tobacco, nnd thrco quar ters for alcohol-i-thut la, the drinking bill Is thrco times as largo as tho smoking bill. Of tho two billions spent for drink $1,170,000, 000 goes for boer, $700,Q00,000vfor WEAKNESS but is prompt! relieved rccdictl nourit!uaer.t in 's Emulsion vfcfch U not a nerve-Quieter, but nature' greatest serve-builder, without alcohol er piate.

Tho $700,000,000 tobac co bill is thus divided: $446,000, 000 for cigars nnd little cigars, $73, 000,000 for' cigarettes, $157,000,000 for smoking and chewing tobacco, and $24,000,000 for, snuff. Mr, Fayant's figures show that beer is tho drink of tho American people, nnd thnt cigarettes are rap idly becoming the national smoke.

TIP HOW TO KISS llUllllV DRAWS SUIT FOR TII'STl'lt Chicago 111., Sept. 2C "I think tbore nro ninny mnrrled wome'n who should be taught how to kiss their husbands. Mrs. Tracy Is among this I number, nnd, knowing .she was, I told her how to kiss the doctor, so she could regain nnd hold his affec tions. Instead of taking my ndvlec and profiting by It, she wns offended and brought suit against the doctor and me." Miss Edna McUownn, office assist ant to Dr. Frank W. Tracy, dentist, who was sued for $50,000 for alien ation nt the same time that Mrs. Theresa M. Tracy sued Her husband for separate maintenance, made tho foregoing statement concerning tho kissing episode set forth In Mrs. Tracy's bill for separation. It was alleged by Mrs. Tracy that Her husband's assistant had sought to give her Instructions in the art of kissing one's own husband. Miss McOowan admits It nnd Justifies her course. "I do not admit that I know from rrsonal experience just how Dr. Tracy likes his kisses, but I do know that if I hnd a husband I would see that he was "proporly and sufficient ly kissed every day, whether he I wanted to bo kissed or not. "That Is w'at I told Mrs. Tracy when she complained 'that tho rtoc- tor. hnd lost his nffectlon for her. iThrtj I told "her how to kiss him. and she became exceedingly vexed."

SEX IS A VEHV IjAKUK PART Yet it Is true that pcoplo aro no longer marrying with that gladsomo and unsuspicious nlacrity that once they did. Dut It Is no more than n phase. It Is not a portent. It may bo faced with that dlvlno indiffer ence that Is so largo a lack In our national life. It will pass as such phases have passed a hundred times, but since it is liere wo may as well face the reason, for it has Its place In the scheme of things. The basic reason for a male un willingness to marry and the fault Is mainly n male one Is a destruc tion of tho sense of dlfferenco be tween tho sexes. It has been de stroyed by a few women who have succeeded in saturating their kind with ono of those specious fallacies that aro accepted In the ratio of their falsity. Ono day tho women of tho world will have a wise leader who will lead them to greater heights of power than they have ever known, and the path will be a backward one. She will not bo of tlieA Pankhurst breed, but of the breed of tvoruc::. She will tell them that every atom of their being Is distinctly female, thnt sex penetrates to tho utmost heights of their na ture and to Its lowest depths, and that between themselves and-men there Is an eternal gulf. She will teach them to glory. In their complete difference from men, a difference thnt leaved Its Ineffaceable stamp upon every nerve, upon every atom of brain nnd mind, upon every emo tion, thought, nnd aspiration. SIio will tell 'them that sex is not mere surface distinction, that It Is inclu sive, TaUlcal, primitive; and that just as they exalt their own sex, In sisting upon Its all-embracing differ ences, so must they inevitably be come dominant in tho affairs of tho world. Now, it'isthis sense of sex differ ence that has been tho irresistible lure to vinrrlage. A man wants to mnrry a -woman, not because she is exactly like himself, although with a slightly different sort of body, but because ho recognizes in her n be-lng.-as it -were, from another world, totally unlike himself, and with standurds o'f mental and moral value that ho can admire but probably cannot 'imitate. Deep within his own nature he knows that It Is not the feminine body thnt he wants, hut the feminine mind, and now ho is Tieing nssureU thatithoro is no such thing as the feminine mind, and that all tho beautiful and distinctive tilings of which ho was In search liave actually -no 'existence at all. And women, bent upon suicide, havo not only told him that theso things aro 'so, but have tried to prove it to him by sinking tho differences and creating and then exnlting the sim ilarities. "Why should ho wish to marry a woman if womanhood Is only a surfaces somothlng, a chance phenomenon, -that conceals a simu lacrum or duplicate of himself. To assort tliat sex is n mero matter of tho body, 1s obviously to sink mar riage to tlio level of a bodily passion, slnco tho "body then becomes the only factor In tho mntter, Tho mo ment wo recognize sex as pertaining only to tho body, nt tho same mo ment wo lower mnrringo to tho sanio levo, and then mnrriago is not only doomod, but damned. Hut do not let us worry our littlo minds over much about this tiring. It will pass liko tho summer breezes. Tho Ar nonaut. m . m i Curss Old Sores, Other fesiedfes Won't Cure.
