TOBACCO should never be mentioned exbept a poison, one of the most active and fatal of poisons; it tae only herb known to possess two:sctive deadly poitons, NICOTINA and NIGOTIANIN: It is realy so fatal that doctors seldom administer it, and never internally; For in over sdose of Opium, Arsenic, or Strychnine, when taken in time, there is a cure, but for an over dose of tobacco there is none; its affect on the system is Paleness, Nwsea, Giddiness, Lessening tof the heart's action, Vomiting, Pur-_ gins, Cold-sweating, and utter Prostration, such as -ol )other poison can induce, then death! Its evils are num.er- ous we will notice a flewas fo4lows. 1. It impregnates the whole system with two of the most fatal poisons, NICOTINA. and NICOTIANIN, 2. With either of which the system is subjected to continuous repair, therefore Doctors seldom adviseone to quit it. It is too much like taking bread aud butter from their babe's.mouth'. 3. It enslaves a -man so that it requires a powerful exer- stion to break its chaiRs and fetters to regairl the ir freedom 4. It causes dyspepsiaby spitting off the saliva that ought to go to digest the-food aid th6 'digestive system and to 'regulate and heal the bowels. 5. When you breathe 'lhe smoke it produces asthma and lays the foundation fo6 6 train of other fatal 'diseases. 6. In breathing the two poisons into the lungs often pro ducea paralysis of the lungs and consumption. 'I I I I 3 7.

T TOBACCO'EATERSI Is the most 4propriaweuamip for Zthe users of Tobacco; as mgch so as the vile disgupting loathsome green worm that sw ows the poison leaf into its stomach. For the poison ofthe quid and the smoke ta ken up by the blood ve 8e and .absqrbent. Of the __ w e = - i mouth, and carried into the circulation, even Ina moa virulent form than if Introduced by the stomach. Every doctor will tell you that he is more afraid to give tobacco, even as an enema, than any other poison In thE, Mtateria Medics: he never kives it by the stomach. Some- times, in violent Sp3smodlc oolle, or strangulation" of the' bv)wels, or spasmodic croup, tobacco Is used externally as a poultice, and if you are not very careful, it will kill yourX patient even in this form. Many a colt and calf has beeps killed by rubbing them wJth tobacco juice to kill the licei. Tobacco is death to all kind3 of parasitical vermin; it will kill the most venomous reptiles very quick. Many children hqve been killed by the application of tobacco for lice tit- ter sores &c, Dr. Mussey tells of a woman that rubbed Jlittle tobacco juice on a ring worm, not larger than a 25ets.. )ln her little girl's face; and if a physician h:4d not ba nD 'quickly summoned the child would have died . Hle tellso ,a father who killed his son by putting tobacco spit on a ore on h's head. You would do well to read what various ;.nedical men have written on the subject. Every otberi tooIison vegetable is content with one poison; but tobacce ',hs two of the most deadly poisons in the vegetable kinMr-) lorn. This is no scare-crow put up to frighten you TO-, lbacco Eaters; if you don't bcliev me just examine a veg- ,etable chemistry, and to convince your self more thoroui- ighly, just drop one drop of nicotina or nicotiAb &n tHii -orgie of a Cat or a Dog, that you don't wish to kill by' 'the tediouls method3 ot shooting or drowning, And ..e w biA he effect will be. lSce if Strychnilue will do its work sb Doetors. men whose profession is to play with poieopF a with so many vesudly ipereP stanad-seic ana Denoiq its poisoned farngs with brrrow, not daring to lay bolI onf it and use It as a medicine for hi's sick wife or child.

Thus an antidote Is instantly tra formed Into fuel to feed the inquinohable flame that is aI ready devouring the human vitals. It Is no use in telling you by this time that I talk no, A bout tobacco "like a book," but like one who has been tobacconized. For I have been one of those unfortunate boys who never had an oppertunity of learning ay Mtiin except trom that cross old pedagogqe Experience, who invariably compelled me to work out my own pro blems often have I in scalding tears of bitter regret. Tobacco like alcohol give; a temporary stimulus, and to. slal'k off the use of It, it will produce similar effects, Nicotina and Nicotianin are the proper f. thers to the following diseases,-Dispepsia, Water-brash, CancerRib ollissement, Impotence, Fatuity. Caries, Consumption, Laryngitis, Cardialgia, Angina Peotorls, Neural ia, Palr- diysis, Amaurosis, DC xifness Liver Compt kint, Apoplexy, Insanity, Hippochondriasis,.

Finally, a storm comes and the locust hoped to brave It as he has many others; bnt, alas, its strength is underminded; Its vit ds are eaten away, and it talls,-a victim to the tiny worm.

There is great sympathy existing between the mind and body, whatever effects the body: must of necessity effect the mind; versus. What ever effects the mind is sure to effect the body.i The body is the house that the man lives in,1 if the house is damaged in any way the man proper which is the mind; through sympathy is sure to suffer from such injuries. The power of the mind over the body both in disease and in health, is utterly beyond all the modem scientific conceptions. The mind hasso long bcen clogged and hindered by narcotics andt over stimulents, that it yet remains in its infatn- cy. Every hinderence prevents the growth and development of the mind. ihe body may soon attain to its greatest development, but the mind never reaches its perfection in this sphere. Age and experience fortifies and strengthens the mind, they gives it greatness and power; every in.l fluence possible should be braught to bare up- on the intellect to improve the mind and ad vance it.-The ages past have been more to hin- der and to cramp the intellect, to hinder reasoi and progress than to favor it. But it must be understood now that mind is capable of getting and bringing information from the ulter-etherial worlds. Or of mind conversing with mind, even in separate continents. -Without Telephone, Tele- graph, or JJitch-craft. (Spiritualism.)
