We hear a great deal in these
days in praise of Glasgow as a truly
model city and of its municipalizing
in the interest of the citizens of
nearly every public franchise. That
is all true, and Glasgow highly mer
its all praise bestowed upon it. A t
present, however, we would briefly
remind our readers of Glasgow in
the olden time, hundreds of years
before it obtained its present state
of perfection, and of which we now
rarely hear a word.
I t is about 1,800 years since Glas
gow was founded by Kentigern or
St. Mungo, but the city did not
mnount to much until after the act
of union between Scotland and Eng
land, about 200 years ago. It was
that act which enabled the mer
chant adventurers of Glasgow to
send out their ships to Virginia and
Maryland for cargoes o f tobacco
leaf. Thus tobacco manufacture
was the first important foreign
trade and home industry established
by Glasgow enterprise.
Very soon the city became the
«enter of the tobacco traffic. For a
long time thereafter the “ tobacco
lords” of Glasgow in their scarlet
robes and on their own privileged
beat were almost as strongly marked
figures in history as were the mer
chants o f Venice. When the Ameri
can colonies revolted and the Unit
ed States republic was established
Glasgow lost its flourishing tobacco
trade, but some of the “ tobacco
lords,” who held heavy stocks, made
enormous fortunes by the rise in
prices. These fortunes formed the
foundation of larger enterprises
elsewhere and the begetting of the
us “ merchant princes” that
driven from Virginia the
rs established trade with
ivest Indies, where sugar suc
ceeded tobacco as a staple of trade.
Then came cotton and next coal,
which was 600 n followed by iron.
Meantime there had been a continu
ous development of trade with In
dia, with China, with South Amer
ica, with the United States and ulti
mately with Australia and New
T ill then the Clyde bad
been little better than a stagnant
ditch, but Glasgow by degrees
formed a deep, broad, navigable wa
terway, and then came commerce

“ Tell me what a man reads and
I will tell you what he is,” said a
wise writer; for little by little the
things that we read become our
thoughts, and make a very texture
o f the mind.
During the last few months the
attention ol the American people
has been aroused to the considera

This agitation has done good, for

there is little excuse for using any
food which is harmful.
