SMOKING IN THE ARMY. At the present time, when people at home, encouraged by the military authorities, are sending out tobacco by the hundredweight to our troops at the front, it is rather amusing to recall the Duke of Wellington's counterblast, which took the form of a General Order, in 1845 :

" G.O. No. 577. The Commander-in-Chief has been informed that the practice of smoking, by the use of pipes, cigars, and cheroots, has become prevalent among the Officers of the Army, which is not only in itself a species of intoxication occasioned by the fumes of tobacco, but, un- doubtedly, occasions drinking and tippling by


Henry II. (the first of the Angevin line).

those who acquire the habit ; and he intreatff- the Officers commanding Regiments to prevent smoking in the Mess Booms of their several Regi- ments, and in the adjoining apartments, and to- discourage the practice among the Officers of Junior Rank in their Regiments."

Punch, then in its fourth year of existence,, made merry over this, representing the dismay spread among officers by " the possibility of being thrown upon their* conversational resources, which must have* a most dreary effect."
