Bars Tobacco Chewing 1910


One of the most far-reachlng reforms ever Inaugurated by the. Pennsylvania Railroad went into effect yesterday when an order was promulgated prohibiting all employees of the passenger and freight stations east of Pittsburg and Erie the use of tobacco in any form while on duty.

For years smoking has been frowned upon, but now "chewing" comes under the ban. The order aims at cleanliness and sanitation.  The '"Penney" Is issuing- a new book of rules, which shows many changes to meet new conditions and to better safeguard public travel.
