It is perfectly well known to physclans
that excessive cigarette-smoking does
do a great deal of harm. In tho first
place, people who smoke cigarettes do
more smoking than those who use ciga "s
and pipes. If a man is going to leave
his, oittce to run across tho street for a
minute, or is walking to the corner to
take ahorse ear, he will not light a cigar;
ha knows it must be thrown away im
mediately, and a senso of economy re
strains him. But if he is in the habit of
rolling cigarettes, he may take a whiU
at any time, ami is pretty sure to bo al
ways doing it Ihe result is that where
a non-smoker has tho benefit of some
fresh air in the lungs whenever he is
out of doors, the cigarette smoker takes
in air charged with nicotine.
Smokers of cigars and pipes do not.
as a rule, tntialo smoke, but cigarrette
smokers do. Why this should bo, it is
dilnenlt to say, but it is an acknowl
edged fact that it is so. It is thus easy
to see why the results of . cigafretto
smoking should be so baneful. The air
reaching tho lmigs and tho blood
goes through, the wiiutpipo ana the
bronchial tubes. Between the windpipe
and the lurgs tho bronchial tubes keep
dividing into two. This incessant sub
division reduces them ultimately to
great fineness. In the lungs they are
scarcely wider than a hair. At the cnu
of each bronchial tube there is what
is called a pneumonia glo bule. It
is ia this globule that tha air and blood
meet; it is here that the blood

In the caso of men who inhale
the smoke of cigarettes, these

order to know the cxtont to which the

necesarv to remember that the area of
these pneumonic globules is some thou
sand and two hundred square feet.

Graphic Description of tha Great Stone
Face of the "Man of the mountain.
The vicinity of Frnnconla Notch, in
New Hampshire, abounds in scenery
which is w ild and rugged, but pictu
resque beyond description. Such a
union of granite hills and grassy dells,
of rock, and lake, and river, such a
mingling of the beautiful and grand,
is to be found nowhere else in America.
The bold outlines of Mt Lafayette
are near at hand, with mountain-top
looming over mountain-top in the dis
tance. Here are Cannon Mountain
and Eagle Cliff, one on the right hand
and the other on Uie left, forming the
walls of tho Notch, while nestled in the
valley at their feet lies .Eiho Lake,
twin sister of the mountains.
eurther to the south is the iiume, a
mammoth fissure in the rocks, 700 feet
in length, and with perpendicular walls
60 or 70 feet in height; and a little
distance away aro tho Pool and Basin,
with other curiosities.
But the crowning feature of the scene
Is tho wonderful Profile, the "great
stone faco" of the "Old Man of the
Mountains," which keeps guard over
the Notch, and casts its shadows in the
limpid waters of Profile Lake. This is
the closest resemblance to the human
face which has ever been found in
natural scenery anywhere in the world.
It is carved in solid rock upon the
southern face f Cannon Mountain, and
measures 80 fovt from forehead to cliin,
while the top of the mountain is 1,500
feet above the lake at its foot, and
nearly 4,000 feet above sea level. The
outlines of tho face are composed of
ihreo exeat masses of rock, one of
which forms the forehead, another the
nose and upper lip, and a third the

Passing down the road, the Old Man's
face changes first into that of "a tooth
less old woman in a mob cap," and
soon the entire outline is broken ua
and the resemblance is lost Going up
the road, the nose and face flatten out
until only the forehead is seen.
Ihe profile is said to have been dis
covered in 1S03 by two workmen on
the mountain road. It had, howevt r.
been known for ages to the Indians,
who attributed to it supernatural at
tributes, lheveven feared to hsh in
the Like at its feet, or to sail their bark
canoes over its waters, from fear of the
stern face which it reflected. Manv
legends and tales have been related
concerning the wonderful face. In one
of these it is represented as the face of
Christ the Judge "Chrisius Jucfcr,"
Some one has written concerning it:
Men put out signs representing the

Almighty has hung out a sign that in

THE SULTAN'S HAREM.
Conspicuous Persnnase and Officials of the
The Sultana Valide ia theonlv inmate
of the royal harem who is privileged to
receive visits from foreigners. Under
a manner of quiet dignitv she carries
determination, which makes hisrh otll-
Mals dread her influence and seek her
favor. In time of peril and ditre.sshe
may admit deputations from the army

acknowledged, and she ha beeti known
to plead for her son wilh eloquence and
pathos. At the festival of Uairam, cel

LEARNING A TRADE.
A Bound Argument In Favor of Floys Ae.
quiring anowiidft in Shops.
When a boy has onco gained the
practical knowledge which every boy
of the least ability will naturally acquire
in a shop he is fitted to convert the
knowledge which a college or a univer-
nty offers Jam into useful wisdom.
The greatest fallacy of modern edi
calionists is that a by can better b
taught lo do something by theory than
he can learn to do something by prac
tice. This has never proved true, and
th"re is no reason to believe that it ever
will. There are thousands of college
graduates in this country to-day whose
prospects oi getting a living are ex
tremely precarious, because they know
nothing except what thoy were taught
at college. On tho other hand, there
nro a great many who havo had their
ideas broadened by a collega course,
and correspondingly benefited thereby.
Simple as the wholt; matter is, there are
many who can not be made to see it,
and they are helped along sometimes,
in thoir blindness, by those who ought
to know better. The idea that a college
course alone will fit a man to get a
decent living is as fallacious as the idea
that such a course can not help him
iu getting along in tho world. The
best advice, in our opinion, that can be
given boys in this respect Is: Do not
depend upon what you may acquire at
soino institution of learning to get yon
comfortably through the world. The
failures will be a hundred to one. On
the contrary do not despise what you
may learn at schools and colleges.
This will bo a mistake, though not so
fatal as tho one first namod. American
