Smoke Out the Cholera

October 3, 2012

Smokers have now a good excuse for using the weed. Doctor Wenck, professor of the Imperial Institute of Berlin, has made the discovery that smokers are relatively immune to certain epidemic diseases, especially cholera. He claims that tobacco smoke rapidly kills the cholera germs.

Can’t somebody help the whiskey guzzler out in similar manner?

Smoke a Lucky Instead of Over-Eating

CIGARET FIGHTING

Toledo News-Bee: Somewhere in Ohio a movement has started which seeks to have all cigaret packages labeled with skull and crossbones. Congress is to be asked to treat cigaret as poison and labeled accordingly.

This kind of fighting is a waste of power. With so many heavier evils confronting mankind, with so many things in this interesting world – fighting against, why bother with tobacco?

And doubtless as many people are seriously hurt by over-eating as over-smoking. Others are hurt by over-worry about trivial matters — such as smoking.
