The National Association of New South Wales calls upon the Holman Government to take steps to prohibit cigarette-smoking among girls. If you are quite a pretty maid, With eyes of shining jet, And hav-e not been at all afraid Of that vile cigarette, Remember that with mortal ills the evil "smoke" will rake you, And give it up ere Governments are forced to move to make you. You take the little, deadly tube In tea-rooms now and then And May and Annie, Kate and Rube Smoke sometimes just like men. When dinner's done, and they collect about the safe table, Discard the habit, little girls; renounce it while you're able! It yellows your complexious, dears; It dulls and blears your eyes; It racks your nerves with foolish fears. Be fair, sweet girls, be wise. Remember what it costs for furs (although they're often rabbits), And frocks and gowns, and drop at once this last expensive "habit." —Billy T., in Melbourne "Punch."
