She tells the girls to beware of young men of bad habits , especially those who smoke. Now , smoking is comparatively a harmless- habit. It is true that nobody but fools smoke , but a man can be a great deal worse than a fool. Lest some should think us harsh in calling all smokers fools we will prove it. At some period all boys are non-smokers. Everybody concedes that they are fools to learn. But let that pass. It is worse to drink and swear thau to smoke. It is worse to wear better clothes than one can af ford. It is worse to be idle when one should be at work. It is worse to cut a dash and stave off one's debts. It is worse to do a great many common things than to smoke. Girls ought to draw the line somewhere , but it should be away the other side of an honest , , manly fellow who is addicted to the comfort of a haiar-root pipe. If we were a young , tender , trusting and inexper ienced bud of womanhood , , trembling with fear and hope on the threshold of active life and long dresses , a young man- who smokes , would be our refuge and trust a thousand times before we would repose our happiness and other treasurers in the hands of a chap who spends the mosfe of his gross receipts in the pursuit of fine clothes. Topics. So FAR as the American hog question- is concerned , the indications are that a majority of the House Foreign Affairs Committee-is inclined to hold that our Government cannot retaliate upon France and Germany without violating treaty stipulations. Tils- land frauds in Dakota are to be investigated , and a good start has been made by the indictment of a large num ber of prominent attorneys for frauds in Jaud office cases.
