The Tobacco Heart.
The Influence of tobacco upon the heart
Is frequently more strongly marked than
in any other direction. There are few per
sons who use this substance to excess who
do not suffer from the disordered action of
the organ in question. The impulse is
rendered weaker an ! more irregular, so
that faintness, intermittent pulse and pal
pitation are induced.
The tobacco heart is so well known arid
recognized by physicians that when the
organ is found to be in an abnormal con
dition questions to the pnt in regard to
toe use or tonacco are t sver omittea, ana
prohibition is insisted upon in every case
without exception. I am very sure, from
my own experience, that many young per
sons lay the seeds of organic disease of the
heart from the excessive use of tobacco or
from beginning it too early in life.
It not only lessens the nervous influence
by which the heart is kept in action, but it
causes a deterioration of the organic mus
cular fibres of which the organ is com
posed. "Weak heart" and "heart failure,"
so commonly met with in our day, are, I
have no doubt, very often the direct con
sequence of the abuse of tobacco.
The use of tobacco by minors should be
absolutely prohibited, not by laws which
are impossible of enforcement and which
encumber the statute books, but by home
influence and command. If this were
done we should have much lessof the dele
terious effects nf tobacco, for it is very cer
tain that no young person can use this
substance, even in moderation, without
suffering more or less severely at the time
and laying up for himself future troubles
of even mora serious import. Dr. William
A. Hamniutid in New York Herald.
Show Window Two Storlei High.
"It stems strange to me," said a man
who had recently returned from Europe,
"that some of the Ne-v York merchants
who sell dry goods, carpets, furniture, etc.,
do not have show windows such as are
seen on the continent, which extend from
the Lasemeut to the ceiling of the ground
floor. If one such were arranged it would
not only attract great attention on account
of its novelty, but also because it would
afford such an excellent opportunity for
the display of goods. The longest portieres
could be hung up in it, and be seen to much
better advantage than is possible in mast
of the present windows.
"An idea of some of the merchants in
Germany is to have their show windows
of this kind divided into two floors. The
top one is fitted up as a library or reception
room and the bottom as a kitchen or din
ing room. The effect is very realistic, as
the window looks like the section of a
house." New York Tribune.
Nutritive Properties of Cream.
The fact is not so well known as it de
serves to be that cream constitutes an ad
mirable nutriment for invalids. It is su
perior to butter, containing more volatile
oils. Persons predisposed to consumption,
aged persons, or those inclined to cold ex
tremities and feeble digestion are especial
ly benefited by a liberal use of sweet cream.
It is far better than cod liver oil, and be
sides being excellent for medicinal proper
ties it is a highly nutritious food. New
