Warninfir to Cigarette Smokers
In regard to the results of j cigarette
smoking, physicians say it affects seri
ously the lunctions of the stomach! es
pecially iu the Young. It has a tendency
to increase the action of the heart,
causes palpitation. It is a fruitful
source of indigestion J It has a decided
tendency to produced catarrh in the
head. This, it is said, arises from the
fact that a cigarette, being much shorter
than a cigar, more of the smoke finds
its way into the mouth and nasal or
gans, a very much larger percentage
of smoke being inhaled by the smoker
from a cigarette than lrom j a cigar.
Cigarette smoking, it is averred, has
also a decided tendency J to produce
asthma, and renders' the system more
liable to tho attacks of pneumonia and
bronchitis. In its effects upon the ner
vous system, cigarette imoking is said
to be in the highest degree pernicious,
both directly and indirectly. It destroys
a healthy appetite for solid food; and,
by the constant expectoration it pro
duces, leads to a morbid craving for
drink. Injury or- destruction of the
nerves of the eyes, it is alleged, has
been, in hundreds of instances, produc
ed by cigarette smoking.
A citizen of the Quaker Citv. Mr. F.
Freed, Hying at 122 Vine St., recently
spoke as follows: 'Being afflicted with
a distressing cough. Dr. Bull's Cough
Syrup was recommended to me for
relief. I am happy to say that a few
doses not only gave me instant relief,
but effected a complete cure."
