Scientific Investigation Has Proved
That Tobacco Should Not Be U6ed
by the Fair Sex.
It seems that at last a purely physio
logical reason hus been found why
women should not smoke, apart from
tho very general prejudico which ex
ists in this country.
"Smoking," says Dr. Hargravo, a
London physician, "does not have the
eame effect on 'women that it does
on men. An imperious necessity felt
by most smokers to satisfy their pas
sion after eating is physiologically ex
plained by tho excitation of the sali
vary glands whoso secretions, so use
ful in digestion, the smoko augments.
Moreover, it has been shown that it
sterilizes the saliva and that this is
really beneficial from tho viewpoint
of the possible infection from tho
"But with women it is a serious con
clusion reached from many oxperk
ments that few of them need tobacco.
While the proportion of me whose
lallvary secretions were stimulated
and sterilized by smoking was very
large, tho proportion of Wwmen, on tho
other hand, was very small. Even
in women who have been habitual
smokers for years th action of this
weed was found to bo less marked, in
fact, almost negligible."
So apparently Dr. Hav graves is o(
tho opinion that women should not
smoke, because they do not need it.

Prince, Big Barbary Lion, Mourns Mate's Death
CHICAGO Prince, tho great Bar
bary Hon at tho Lincoln park zoo,
Is mourning the death of Nellie, who
long was his mate. Dismally ho paces
his cage with a faraway look. The
gentlo strokes of the keeper on his
nose pass unnoticed as are the Juicy
steaks lying on tho floor of his cage.
"Ho mourns as I knew he would,"
said Cy De Vry In a shaky voice. "But
Nellie Is buried in a high and dry
place where no one can disturb her
She shall have a monument a small
one but still a monument."
Nellie for years was tho best known
animal In the Lincoln park zoo. . She
was tho mother of 126 cubs. For sev
eral years she had been blind and
gradually getting feebler with old age.
She was twenty-four years old. Cy
De Vry, who has had charge of the
animals for twenty-fivo years, raised
Nellie from a cub.
Prince was purchased from a circus
in Wisconsin on April G, 1903, for $1,
400, and placed in the same cage with
Nellie. They lived in harmony and
hnpplness, the best of "pals" for ten
long years. Visitors used to smilp as
they gazed Into cage 4 at Nelllo and
