THE USE OF TOBACCO.
THE QUESTION BRIEFLY DISCUSSCD
BY A MEDICAL MAN.
A. Matter of Importance to Smokers,
tlablts to Do Avoided Tho Cigarette
Smoker Properties of Nicotine Experi
mental Observation The Maoris.
Tobacco contains nn acrid, dark brown
oil, an alkaloid, nicotine and another
substanco called nicotianino, in which
exist its odorous and volatile principles.
This description of tho active principles
of tobacco is of importanco to smokers;
for, when tobacco is burned, a new set
of bubstanccs is produced, somo of which
aro lo&s harmful tlian tho nicotine, and
aro more ngreeablo in effect, and nluch
of tho acrid oil a substanco quito a9
irritating and poisonous as nicotine is
can id off. Tfieso fire produced sub
stances aro called, from their origin,
tho "pyridine series." By great hc.it
tiio moro aromatic and lcs3 harmful
members of tho series aro produced, but
tho more poisonous compounds aro gen
erated by tho slow combvuiion of damp
tobacco. This oil, which 13 liberated by
combustion, is bad both in flavor and in
effect, and it is better, even for tho im
mediate pleasure of the smoker, that it
Eliould bo excluded altogether from hh
mouth and air passages.
Smoking in a stub of a pipo is particu
larly injurious, for the reason that in it
the oil is stored in a condensed form,
and the smoko is therefore highly
charged with tho oil. Sucking or chew
ing the stub of a cigar that one is smok
ing is a serious mistake, because tho
nicotine in tho unburned tobacco dis
solves freely in tho saliva, and is ab
sorbed. "Chewing" is on this account
tho most injurious form of tho tobacco
habit, and tho use cf a cigar holder is an
improvement on tho custom of holding
tho" cigar between tho teeth.
MISCHIEF OF CIGARETTES.
Cigarettes aro responsible) for a grcjt
amount of mischief, not becauso tho
smoko fiom tho paper has any particu
larly evil effect, out because smokers
fcnd they aro often boys or very young
men aro apt to uso them continuously
or at frequent intervals, believing that
their power for evil is insignificant.
Tims tho nerves aro under the constant
influence of tho drug, and much injury
to tho system results. Moreover, the
cigarette smoker uses a very considerable
amount of tobacco during tho courso of
a day. "Dipping" and "snufiing" arc
semi-barbarities which need not bo dis
cussed. Not much effect is obtained
from tho uso of tho drug in these vari
eties of tho habit.
Nicotino is one of the most powerful
of tho "nerve poisons" known. Its viru
lence1 is compared to that of prussic acid.
If birds be mado to inhale its vapor in
amounts too'small to bo measured, they
are almost instantly killed. It seems to
destroy life, not by attacking a fow, but
all of tho functions essential to it, begin
ning at the center, the heart. A signifi
cant indication of this is that there Is no
substanco known which can counteract
its effects: tho system either succumbs1
or survives. 'Its depressing action on
the heart fa bv far tho moat noticeable
aim noteworthy symptom of nicotine
poisoning. Tho frequent cxistenco of
what is known as "smoker's heart" in
men whose health is in no other respect
disturbed is duo to this fact.
AN EXPERIMENTAL OBSERVATION,
In an experimental observation or
thirty-eight boys of all classes of society
and of average health, w ho hadi been
using tobacco for peiiolu nging
.from tw o months to two y.ars, twenty
boven showed Eovcro injury to tho con
stitution and insufficient growth: thirty-.
two blioiveu theexutencoor irregularity
of the hcart'b action, disordered stom.
ncho, cough, and'a ciaving for alcohol,
thirteen had inteimittency of tho pulso,
and one had onsumption. After thoy
had abandoned the uso of tobacco, within
six months' time one-half wcro frco from
their former symptoms, and tho remain
der had iccoveu'd by tho end of tho year.
A great majority of men go far be
yond what may bo called tiic temperate
uso of tobacco, and evidences of injury
aro easily found. It is only necessary to
have somo record of what tho general
health was proious to tho taking up of
tho habit, and to have observation cover
a long enough time. Tho history of to
bacco in tho Island of Now Zealand fur
nishes a quito suggestive Illustration for
our purposo, anu ono on a largo scale.
When Europeans first visited New
Zealand they found In the nativo Maoris
tho most finely developed and powerful
men of any of tho tribes inhabiting th)
islands of tho Pacific. Since the Intro
duction of tobacco, for which tho Maoris
developed a passionate liking, they have
from tliia causo alone, it is sold, become
decimated in numbers, and at tho same
timo reduced in stature and In physical
well being so as to bo an altogether infe
rior type of men, C. W. Lyman ta New
