Brass Alonky and Cigarette.
One day there was n brass monkey in
a show window of a cigar atoro, which
worked automatically, and when tint
cigaretto was put into its hands, it drew
it to nnd fro, and puffed tho smoko just
liko n live porcou. Rut after nn Illicit
stopped," nud no oil or anything vlio
would make.it work. So they took it
apart, and to their groat surprise they
found tho machinery inside clogged
with tobacco, and it would not work
until it was cleansed. What do you
suppose cigarettes will do lor tho ma
chinery of a boy hia heart, lungs, liv
er, brnin, etc. if they will do that tor
tho machinery of a brass monkey? It
can do much worao: It can kill a boy
by affectiuc his machinery. It can
keep him from having good steady
norves, a clear brain, n strong heart, nnd
tough muscles for tho work of life, be
fore it does kill. Ex.
