Dr. Jones, Died Rather Than Go Back to Tobacco. ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. —“I will die trying to do right. I will not yield to temptation on* ly to perish in hell tire,” should be old John Henry Johnson's ep itaph. Concious until his last gasp and glorifying in his moral strength, Johnson, 80 years of age, died at his home in Port Republic. Up to a few days ago he had smoked tobacco antly for three score years. Johnson and every hnan and * >y in the little town near here swr e off tobacco after an evangelist in St. Paul’s Methodist Church- de clared eloquently that he who burns or chews or snuffs the weed jWill burn eternally; that cigarette smokers will be partic ularly well broiled. Fired by the sermon Miss Amanda Blake, who keeps the general store in Port Republic, made a bonfire of her stock of pipes, and tobacco. Only a few hours after his re nunciation of tobacco old John son was taken ill. His physicians said that his nervous system, ac customed to the tobacco stimu lent for sixty years, was going to pieces for lack of it. They told Johnson if he took to his pipe again he might get well. The old gentleman retorted with the words that may be graven on his monument. Nor did he need the encour agement to stand fast given him in hundreds of letters from wo en and men which came to him after some of the facts here were published. Johnson’s funeral was one of the largest ever attended in the shore village. A movement has been made to commemorate the old man’s fortitude with an en during shaft.—Ex. Mr. T. W. Woodward, who spent several days with his fami ly took to the road again Tues day.
