Tobacco for Teetotallers





Narcotics, Medical Treatment, Health, Disease

    Discusses an extract from an article by a 'Calcutta writer' who, having read that watercress is an antidote to nicotine, tried smoking dried watercress leaves and found that it 'had all the flavour of the best Cavendish without the treacle'. Believes this is good news for teetotallers because they believe smoking induces 'alcoholic tendencies' but will probably indulge in watercress smoking.
