Excerpt

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. That audience should say; first go reform thy-self thou intemperate SLAVE of poison!

We have no room for the introduction of proof of our assertions on the evils of tobacco. 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. And here let me ask all who have the good of humanity at heart, to place this lecture in the hands of every one of your tobacconized neighbors. The circulation of anti-tobacco and anti-alcohol tracts will do more good than all other tracts besides. For those are the root and foundation of almost every disorder of mind
