ui: "American women" said the king,
"are beautiful even more they are

the women of a nation are beautiful It
means a great dearTor the race. Then,
too, they are Intelligent, and head and

did know how to make a point.
It Is, or should be, every girl's desire

can be to her mother In the household

What the Inhaling of Smoke Does
To The Humau
A writer In an exchange relates the
confessions of a cigarette smoker as fol
It Is no exaggeration to say that this
new htbit of Inhaling the smoke of
cigarettes a habit which has only
come Into vogue during the last few
year. nd which in the next few will

hold upon those who give way to it
than any other habit which has fop-its
object the gratification of the senses
In one way or another. ' -.
Of some hundreds of men whom I
have known to have contracted the hab
it of cigarette smoke Inhaling, I have
only ?.ird of two who have been suc
cessful In shaking it off.
Inha'lng consists simply in drawing a
volmro of smoke from the clgaivtte in
to the mouth, and then taking a deep
breath,-in :he act of which the smoke

'stantaneous communication to the
brain, which takes the form, of mo
fnentary cmt-paralysls w hen a man Is
new to the habit, that is.
I remember very well the experience
of a youngafrr of eighteen on his be
Ing taught to Inhale the smoke of a
cigarette for the first time. One after
noon some friends persuaded him to
make the attempt, and he did so. Al
most upon the Instant he fell full length
upon the floor In a dead faint; his fea
tures became pallid, his pulse faint
and Irregular; and those about him
were for a time In a great f'lght. He
came round, of course, A day or two
later he tried to Inhale again, with a
result not quite so bad; and he went on
trying till now he Is a'verltable slave
to the habit. Thle over-powering feel
ing of falntness is experienced on al
most every occasion a first attempt at
Inhaling Is made, showing how strong
Is the effect upon the nerves which
have never been put to such a trial be
fore. From this the deduction Is In
evitable that there must be serious per

which to a considerable extent "caught
on." Right in '.he middle of the dinner
they serve a Russian cigarette, Just
big enough to afford halfta dozen deep
Inhaling breaths and satisfy the long

acute. This curious custom waa in
vented entirely in the interests of the
victims of whom I am speaking.
In the majority of cases tr results
of such excess are pliable In the ex
treme, metally and physically. In the
first place, a constani and severe ner
vousness hangs over the victim. He is
In a continual state of lethargy which
he cannot overcome. His mental pow
ers are very coni,iderably dulled, and
his capacity for wark is greatly re
uuced. The puli's becomes Irregular,
the heart Is weakened, the appetite is
greatly diminished, and the hollow
cheek and sunken eye are palpable in
dications that something la seriously
wrong. This description of the physi
cal effect is not mine: It Is given by one
of the most eminent physicians of the
day. The victim, moreover, becomes
very susceptible to lung trouble of all
