For, lo, I say unto you; tiz worse to snif the dust than get a timber in thine eye.

On a hunch I went a'lookin' and found that the article, A Medical Survey of the Bituminous-Coal Industry, was released by the gubment in 1947. Think 'black lung', Tammy Wynette, etc.

Makes me think "Oink Oink".

I do have an unused (filter still sealed) WWII gas mask. Even though they outlawed the use after WWI they still had them ready for WWII just in case. They even had one for babies.
