I am frequently asked which is
the more dangerous for a man,
smoking or chewing tobacco? Be
cause so many men do one or the
other, if not both ! Especially is this
so in rural life-—that sort of living
that comprises most of human lib
erty if not luxury.
I can hardly concede danger in
either phase of tobacco-using, pro
vided always that moderation is
strictly observed; the limit of the
safety-zone is TEMPERANCE, and
that applies to food and drink and
work and play as well.
At the time of my graduation, I
had learned to be a fiend for smok
ing; ambitious to succeed, I observ
ed very keenly that my pockets
carrying the smokers’ fragrant mix
tures offended some of the fine
patrons almost to the point of dis
gust. This wouldn’t do, I banished
the old pipe and betook myself to
the seductive “plug.”
15ut, oh, the filth of that! The
abomination that goes with the cus
pidor! Smoking threatened to rum
my business; chewing menaced me
with a divorce court. I resolved to
quit—had to do it And I did it.
Here’s how: , , j
I bought gum, plenty, f chewe
a wad of gum till the sugar was
extracted from it; then, I added
to the tasteless wax a small bit ot
tobacco, making a very smooth
“chew.” It had the seductive flavor
of the plug, without the eternal
spitting and bad breath. One bolus
would satisfy me continuously for
half a day; my tobacco was reduc
ed to the vanishing-point; 1 be
And, there's a method by which
the excessive chewer may make
himself decent in a very satisfac

PICTURES . . the old “stills”
Before the movies, the only way
in which most people learned what
the rest of the world looked like
was by stereopticon lectures, in
which “still” pictures were projected
on the screen by what we used to
call a magic lantern. My father

giving these illustrated lectures in
small New England towms, and I

One of the most interesting de
velopments of the past few years
has been the revival of popular in
terest in bicycling. More bicycles
are in use now than ever before,
people in the trade report.
In America, bicycling is still much
more a sport than a means of
transportation. In Europe the ordi
nary working man can by no pos
sibility afford to own a car. He
uses a bicycle to go back and forth
to his day’s work. I have seen in
European cities bicycles carrying
loads of tools and building mater
ials which we would consider a fair
load for a Ford, It takes an ex
pert to carry a 15-foot ladder on a
bicycle through the traffic of the
Paris boiulevard, but that is not
an uncommon sight.
Just now cycling is a popular fad
in America, but I doubt if it wall
ever come back in this country to
the proportions of 40 years ago,
when everybody rode bicycles.
I saw a statistic the other day to
the effect that tlirec families o.ut of
every five in America own cameras.
There are more than 16 million
amateur photographers in this coun
try and last year they took more
than 300,000,000 snapshots.
We are certainly living in a pic
torial era, I was interested to look
over a large number of amateur
photographs which had been sub
mitted for prizes in a nation-wide
newspaper photography contest, and
I was amazed and delighted at the
artistic effects achieved by many
amateurs and the apparent wide
spread appreciation of beauty and
symbolism among the contestants.
In my younger days, when I was
one of the few amateur photogra
phers, we were well satisfied if we
got any kind of a picture at all.
I think the influence of artistic
photography upon the generation
now growing ,up is going to be
PROGRESS ... in camera art
Thinking back, I don’t know of
any art in which the changes have
been so great in my time as in
photography. Rummaging through a
box of family souve,nirs the other
day I found several daguerreotypes
of my grandparents and an amus
ing tintype of my father, as a col
lege student, wearing a silk hat, as
was the custom of college seniors
in the 1860’s.
I can well remember when hav
ing one’s picture taken was a slow"
and not altogether pleasant process.
The victim’s head was held from
behind in an iron clamp and he
was supposed to look pleasant for
from one to three minutes without
changing his expression. That ac
counts for the wooden and fish-
fased effect of most of the early

camera, I was an inventive and in

amateur named George Eastman

and laid the foundations for modern
photography—and a great fortune
for himself. I saw one of the new-
dry plate cameras and wanted one.

a camera that would work he would
