Summary

"Dr. Dan King says there are three poisonous chemicals in tobacco, one alkaloid and two oils. "A single drop of either of the oils put upon the tongue of a cat kills her in two minutes, and a single grain of the alkaloid is sufficient to kill instantly the strongest mastif." And now do you suppose, my dear lads, that a man can chew this drug and smoke it every day without injuring himself ? No. The fact is, that whole nations are made sickly by its use; numerous diseases may be directly traced to it, and many disorders to which men are liable are rendered incurable by its disturbing effects on the system."
