Moral effects of tobacco usage: there can be no question but that has a seriously deteriorating effect upon the character, blunting moral sensibility, deadening conscience and destroying the delicacy of thought and feeling which is characteristic of the true Christian gentleman. This effect is far more clearly seen, as would be expected, in youths who begin the use of tobacco while their character is being moulded, than those who adopted the habit in later life, though too often plainly visible in in the latter class of cases. The use of tobacco is is a stepping stone to vices of te worst character. It is a vice which seldom goes alone. It is far too often accompanied with profanity and laxity of morals, and leads directly to the use of alcoholic drinks. It is indeed the most powerful ally of intemperance; it is a good omen for the temperance cause that its leaders are beginning to see the importance of recognising this and promulgating it as a fundamental principle in all intemperance work.
