Once more the dark shadow of trag
edy tests upon the Italian peninsula, as
It so often has rested In Its great past.
The if-sasslu.ttlou of King Humbert of
Italy at Mou.a. Hie undent capital of
the Lombard kings, comes with a great
er shock of surprise now lo the civil

The action of the olllclals of the Ilocb
Island ltoad In placing a ban on cigar
etto smoking on the part of employes
following similar action by the Hurling
ton road, will not fall to Impress the
public mind .with the fact that tlu
movement against the cigarette. Is out
of business and not of sentiment. Dls
cushion of the cigarette habit has been
conllued largely to the domain of cth'
les, although wo are treated to occa
sional disquisitions from tho medical
fraternity upon the deleterious etTects
of the practice Upon the mind and body.
The public hits learned, however, that
It Is not always necessary to take tlm
doctors scrjously upoiv these questions.
The doctor has been found to be a very
fallible human being, given to much
guessing and learned speculation. It Is
found that men, quite often grow fat
on diets and drinks that are condemned
by the physician. Hut when u lot of
hard-headed railway olllclals, who are
not animated In their business by senti
mental considerations, promulgate Iron
clad edicts against the use of the cigar
ette among their employes It Is u safe
assumption that they have found tlm
habit to be positively harmful, so much
so that It Impairs the usefulness of

upon the steady nerve and tho unilluch
lug lldellty or employes as docs the .ill

cigarette smoking shutters the ucrvci
and clouds the Intellect. Men who be
come slaves to the habit arc not de
pendable men. They cannot be relied
upon In the emergencies (hat are Inci
dent to the railway business. Itather
than make any tulcs governing or regu
lating InilulgeiiCD In the habit, the tall
way companies wisely concluded that
the safest coursu Is to forbid the prac
