numbers wallcag together on the

the change is growing g:eater all

is the great question. The writer
has arrived at the conclusion that

by these habits of drinking, smok

is dwarfed. We allow the corres'
pondent to give his own reasoning
on the subject, thus : 'Of course
there are plenty of exceptions
there are still very tall men, there
are still very short women. But
the disproportion is increasing,
and in the wrong way. And
wherefore? There are meens of
checking or arresting growth, it is
the effect of some poisons, as they
deprive the nerves of a portion of
their power. They say that pup

know that tobacco is a poison
and we have the testimony of wise
and lerned doctors that man do
not live as long or as well who use
it, and that they grow old faster
than those who let it alone, other
things being equal. It may seem
a small thing out the aggrrgate
is not small and it is eating into
