The consumption of cigarettes in the |
United States in the last decade has in- 1
creased to a literally prodigious extent,
and some of the New York manufactories j
turn out seemingly enough every month |
to supply all creation for the balance of!
time, but the demand increases so rapid
ly that manufacturers are compelled to j
keep step to the lively music of Young
American progress, and the business of;
cigarette manufacture is springing up all
over the country. Cigarettes are sup
posed by many persons to be a modern
invention. This is an error. They were j
known and used according to the best:
authors centuries ago, and their origin is •
in dispute as between the Turk and the j
The French, the Spanish and the Bus- j
sians are patrons of the cigarette, the I
first-named producing, under the man
agement of the "Regie," a prime article j
known as "Caporal," Indicated on the
lithograph signs or advertisements by a i
stirring picture of a corporal of the "Old
Guard" of France in full uniform. The 1
French are extremely fastidious about j
the paper used for "wrapper" purposes ;
—more so, indeed than they are about the ,
quality of the tobacco used as fillers—and
the government has a peculiar "rice pa- i
per" made in China, which is highly
The tabacco used for the cigarette
manufacture varies according to taste,
the Turkish tobacco being considered the
finest, although some people prefer the
Havana long-cut tobacco for fillers.
Of late the cigarette lias become the rage
among the young smokers of America,and
manufacturers vie with each other in
getting up the daintiest-looking packages
possible to attract the eye of the stylish
and "nobby" specimen of young America
who cares more for style than the quali
ty of the tobacco. To smoke a cigarette
gracefully is deemed one of the necessary
modern accomplishments, and the young
"fellah" who can inhale the smoke and
retain it the longest — ala Chinee again
—is considered the champion.
Saturday while D. B. Fells, president
of the Commercial National Bank of
Cleveland, who had been cutting off
coupons from some railroad and bridge
bonds, was conversing with a friend in
his oilice, an unknown man, who had
been sitting in the President's office tor
some time, softly approached the table,
picked up the pasteboard box in which
the bonds had been placed and coolly
walked away. The box was not m issed
for nearly half an hour. The bonds are
all negotiable and consist of $5,000 Mil
waukee and St. Paul Sinking Fund, sec
ond mortgage; SO,OOO first mortgage;
$20,000 first mortgage sinking fund; sl,-
000 consolidated; SII,OOO Chicago and
Milwaukee first mortgage bonds; SIO,OOO
gold bonds, and $23,000 Chicago and At
chinson Bridge Company bonds. The to
tal is $117,000.
Rev. Mr. Smith of the Free Methodist
Church of Fulton, N. Y., is blind, but he
discharges the duties of the pastorate
with his wife's help. She accompanies
him to church at every service, occupies
the pulpit with him, reads the Scripture
and hymns. At class meeting she is by
his side and informs him of the names of
those who speak and those who fail to do
so, that he may call upon them to give
Toe Aniericau delegates to the Ecu
menical Methodist Conference have unit
ed in a call for a centennial conference to
be held in December, 1884, the ecnteuna
ry of the organization of the Methodic
Episcopal Church, to be composed of rep
resentatives of all the Methodist branch
es of the United States. It is probable
that the conference will meet in Balti
more, where in 17K4 the Methodist Epis
copal Church was organized.
