stimulus. Alcohol, ever true to its companion, steps in and supplies
this artificial stimulus. It is a scientific fact that tobacco is
responsible for more drunkards than alcohol. I know from my own
experience, that smoking naturally calls for drinking. Walk through
your town and look at the signs, and you will see them allied under
the same colors, liquors and cigars, beer and pipes,--always. When
biddy can furnish but one decanter there you can get 'two cigars for
a cent.' When a party of old gout-toed wine-bibers make a supper what
do they do? Drink and smoke. When a party of Indians, trappers or
soldiers gets to town to have a blow out, what do they do? Drink and
smoke. When bloods go out on a 'bender' what do they do? Drink and
smoke. When low unprincipled men, thieves, villians, rowdies, rakes,
murderers, the filth and offscourings of humanity meet together to
carouse or design devilish schemes, what do they do? Drink and smoke.
