tures a drinker, with his mouth full of tobacco juice. The drinker if he uses no tobacco is the most temperate man of the two. It is a gross insult to an audience to eject on them alcoholic vituperation and nicotianic expectoration at the same time.

But if you wish to have an abundance of evidence that tobacco produces the diseases which we herein mention you will just please to consult Dr. Lizars, he will furnish you with cases and proof. Read Dr. Mussey's 'Essay on Tobacco,' published by the American Tract Society.
