Cured a Tobacco Man.
An amusing incident occurred
in Durham recently. Lee, the
hypnotist, was there, and one
night cured a tobacco manufac
turer of the tobacco habit, making
the suggestion that tobacco
would make him sick. On enter
ing his factory the next morning
the manufacturer was taken very
sick, the smell of tobacco being j
too much for him. .Naturally he j
received a good deal of good na-
tured guying from his friends
for having deliberately placed
himself in a position where ho j
could not attend to his bushiest j
without being made ill. However, j
on a further suggestion of Mj .
Lee, he was able to go to the
factory all right, but could not j
use the weed without becoming :
sick. Kinston Free Press. s

began by kicking the dashboard,
knocking Mr. Gaskill out of the

broke one of the shafts, he
turned the buggy over on Miss
Bruton, giving a kick that broke
one of her ribs. The young
