So many troubles chase us. so many
problems face us. we're always In a
Slew; so many woes distressing, so
many cares aro pressing, we don't
know what to do. We sigh for days
departed, when we were happy heart
ed, and full of wholesome glee; when
griefs were not invented, and every
man, contented, sat 'neath his vine
and tree. Tut in those bygone seasons,
ere Huns, with tricks and treasons.
. kicked up a beastly row, we all were
ns unhappy, as sassy and as scrappy,
sis sore as we are now. The troubles
then parading were of another shad
iing, they bore another brand, butj
they were just .is galling, they kept
tlie people brawling throughout a
wearied land. Our words were just as
bitter, we didn't sing and twitter more
than we do today; we pawed around
and panted, and walked the floor and
ranted, and groaned our hearts away.
Pespite the thorns that scar us. des
pite the jolts that jar us. we still can
smile a few; it doesn't make things
better to be a chronic trotter and weep
a quart or two.

A BUSY-BODIES CAMPAIGN.
THOSE whose principal occupation in life is minding
ether people's business are preparing for a nation
yyidft, campaign to destroy the tobacco industry and make
it a cnir.e to smok- ch-w or snuff. The agitators and
busy-bodies who solved the problem of living without
work by means of the prohibition crusade, seek to con
tinue m their easy berths by assailing My Lady Nicotine.
The announcement .that the W. C. T. U. is raising a mil-
J-"L ""campaign assures tne undivided sup-
port of the professional fanatics and the agitation will
continue as long as there is easy money;
The use of tobacco is a comparatively harmless habit.
Tobacco injures no one when used in moderation, and
when used to excess, only injures the user. It does not
affect society adversely. It is rather: a flimsy straw
bogey to wage a nation-wide campaign against-but it
furnishes an excuse and provides a means to keep those
so inclined from having to work for a living
