GOES THROUGH THE MOTIONS
But Smokers Will Wonder How That
Tobaceoless Pipe Must Taste
M. Maeterlinck is among those who
have freed themselves from the bond-
age of tobacco by means of a curious
artifice. According to his biographer,
M. Gerard Harry, "without the help
of tobacco he seemed incapable of re
ceiving inspiration or crystallizing it
in words. If he has not overcome the
need, he has outflanked it Smoking,
he noticed, had lost its virtue as a
stimulant, and instead of rousing the
brain to activity, as at first, had come
to disturb its functions; so now, in
lieu of ordinary tobacco, he fills his
bowl with a denicotinized preparation,
tasteless indeed, bat harmless. His
pipe is still always alight when the
pen is busy, but it is hardly more now
than a mere subterfuge intended to
cheat and so satisfy an irresistible
mechanical craving." London Chron

officers were to have their hair dressed
"the same as the men, excepting their
