A SMOKER ANALYZES THE FUN HE
GETS OUT OF A CIGAR.
The Pleasure of the "Weed Is Received
Thron;h the Eyes The Poetry of Hold
ing a CIgarBctween the Xips The Finer
Sensations of the HalIt Described.
Almost all men smoke -with their eyes,
though f ow of them know it. They do not
light the cigar with their oyes, though often
pooms refer to eyes, usually some girl's,
as bright enough for that purpose; but the
real enjoyment of smoking comes through
the eyes and the touch. It seems to be
commonly thought that the senses of taste
and smell are those which are most affected
by tobacco, and those which alone make a
man enjoy tobacco, but this is not correct.
Of course a man may taste a cigar, just as
he may taste a piece of leather or a piece of
wood, but, unless he chews, the taste of
tobacco is no moro pleasing than the taste
of leather or wood; rather, on the con
trary, it is sickening. Then men think
they can tell about cigars from their odor,
but in reality they tell about them from
their appearance and their feel.
Thero are many men who hold a cigar in
their mouths and roll it around without
smoking it. Some of them bite it and
. others chew it, but the number who hold
it between their teeth or roll it around be
tween their lips is greater. That is usually
the way with an old smoker. When the
cigar is lighted he has a certain particular
place for it, and certain teeth between
which tho cigar rests. With some men it
is front teeth, with others tho incisors, and
somo men shift their cigars away back.
DELIGIITS OF A DRT SMOKE.
It is seldom that two men hold their
cigars in their moutlis in just tho same
way and at the same angle. There are as
many ways and angles of holding cigars as
there arc men who smoke them.
There is where a gicat deal of the satis
faction of smoking comes in. The nerves
of touch of the lips are as keen and sensi
tive as those of any part of the body; there
is no liard cuticle to dull them. The lips are
full of sensitive blood vessels and sensitive
nerves. They curve, arch, straighten, be
come hard, are drawn, and conform to
every emotion of the mind and to every
thought. Most smokers have mobile lips.
The hard mouthed man seldom becomes a
victim of tho smoking habit. He may
Emoke occasionally because others do, or
lie may chew, but he misses one of the
greatest enjoyments of a cigar. These
blood vessels and these nerves in tho lips
nre near the brain. The contact of the
cigar with them goes at once to tho brain.
That feeling and the sight of the smoke
are soothing; it is not the taste and tho
One of the greatest differences between
good and poor cigars is in the wrapper. It
is tho wrapper which comes in contact
with tho lips. A good wrapper is soft
softer than velvet or down; it is like flossy
silk. It does not feel this way to the palm
of the hand nor when clinched tightly be
tween the lips, but when held between tho
teeth tho lip3 touch it and caress it like an
VALUE OF SIGHT.
To a greater extent doc3 smoking appeal
to tho oyes. Try to smoke in a dark room
and the enjoyment at once decreases, and
it is hard to tell the difference between a
good and a bad cigar. It is hard even for
a man who is accustomed to smoking to
tell whether bis cigar is lit or not except
by looking at the coal on the end. If the
man keeps his eyes closed and doe3 not see
tho coal it is easy to deceive him. This
would'not apply to a man who had never
smoked before, but to a man who is accus
tomed to smoking and to such alone are
the joys of the smoker. A sight of the
smoke and the cigar is necessary. It is the
smoke and the glow which appeal to the
eye; tho contrast lwtweon the different
shades of brown in the cigar, tho cherry of
tho burning tobacco and tho grayish ash,
with the thinner gray of tho smoke, chang
ing into various shrules of blue and gray as
it goes through tho air it is these that
make tho visions, the quiet, and the placid
ity which are the churins of smoking.
The fact that a cigar appeals botli to tho
touch and sight accounts for the difference
in the sensation of smoking a pipe, a cigar
and a cigarettee. The touch of the threo
is different. The same tobacco may be in
the pipe and in tho cigar which is in tho
cigarette, but it does not smoke the same
way, and it does not have the same effect on
the smoker. There is not the same feeling
to the lips, and there is not the appeal to
tho touch nerves. Eoth the sight and the
touch of a cigarette are so different that it
cannot bo considered with a pipe or a
There are several lessons to be learned
from these facts about smoking which aro
clear to every one as soon as he thinks
about them, but whieh most smokers have
not thought about, as they go on enjoying
ticir habit without reflecting about the
reasons for the enjoyment. Ono of them
is th at a cigar should be chosen andsmoked

THE CHOICE OF A CIGAR.
A cigar is more than a brown roll of to
.bacvo simply, as that it may bring profit
to the dealer and enjoyment to the eye
through its symmetry and color, but its
force is potential. It has to be burned to
have tho enjoymont it contains let loose.
A smoker should always look at the cigar
fh-st. Cigar dealers have appealed to this
in arranging their botes open in glass
cases. So far as tho factory, the size, shape,
quality, price, brand, color and grade go,
the cigars might as well be kept in closed
boxes. They would also keep better that
way. A smoker .should look over the case;
he should look over cigar after cigar until
wme particular cigar appeals to him. It
is tho same way with a box. No two cisars
are alike. There is a little speck or spot
en one: there is a little tear of the cover, a
THE PEODUCTIOX of an abundant
growth of hair, of a silk-like texture
and of the original color, often results
from the use, by those who have becoino
bald or gray, of Ayer's Hair Vigor:
" I was rapidlv becoming gray and
bald: but after using Two or threo
b.ittles of Aver's Hair Vigor my hair
grow thick Mid glossy and the origi
nal color was restored-' M. Aldrich,
Canaan Centre, N. 11.
" A trial of Ayer's Hair Vigor has con
vinced mo of its merits. Its use has
not only caused the hair of my wifo and
daughter to be abundant and glossy, but
it has given my rather stunted mus
tache a respectable lencth and appear
ance." K. Biittou, Oakland, Ohio.
"I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for
the past four or five years and rind it a
most satisfactory dreeing for the hair.
I i all that I could desire, being harm
less, causing the hair to retaiu its
natural color, and requiring but a small
quantity to render the hair easy to ar
range." Mrs. M. A. Bailey, 9 Charles

Notice thec little points in cigars and pick
out one that has some little point that you
particularly notice. Some men prefer ci
gars with yellow spots, others prefer a hard
looking cigar, others a loo3c cigar, .and so
on. The preference is not material, the
pleasing of the eye is. When a selection
satisfactory to the eye has been made tho
start at least to a good smoke is assured.
Always look at the cigar before lighting it.
Turn it around in your fingers and look at
it. It is going to give you pleasure. Then
light it, not by sticking it in a flame or by
poking it in a small globe, but by lighting
a piece of paper, stick or match and hold
ing it up. Do not put tho cigar in your
mouth and poke your face into a flame.
That prevents the eyes from watching
properly what is going on; but take a light
and notice the flame as it goes to the cigar.

Hero is another thing which many peo

Tako another bill and carefully compare
the ' wo impressions of the same head. Do
you notice any difference? Sea that you
havo a strong light. daylight is best.
Compare all the little dots "and lines. Yes,
they arc identical. Well, the engraving of
ono of these portraits is a very expensive
alTair, and no matter how skillful tho en
graver he could not make a second plate
which would be identical with the first.
This is tho way in which the several
heads happen to be exact counterparts:
Many years ago Jacob Perkins discovered
a way of so softening steel that it could bo
cut as easily as copper. After tho work
was done upon a soft steel plate he hard
ened it. Up to his time copper only had
been usetLfor ongraving purposes so far as
illustrative work was concerned.
After one of tho fine heads (employing
this method) is engraved upon the soft
steel the plate is hardened to its utmost
capacity. It is then put on the bed of a
powerful transfer press, and over it is
placed a roll of soft steel which is pass&l
backward aci forward under a pressure of
twenty tons. Thi3 forces the soft teel into
tho lines of the hardened plate, and the re
sult is a reverse in high relief on the roll
cf the engraved portrait where the lines
were cut into the mc'-al. The roll is hard
ened and the portrait is then capable of
being transferred that te. rolled into
numberless soft steW plates.
So, you see, the exsrt similarity is easily
accounted for, since it is obtained mechani
cally. Tho same means are resorted to
with regard to the ornamental lathe wjrk
and other ceomotric figures- -' "

A Veteran Journalist en Newspapers.
The most obvious faults of the daily
newspaper of the present day are its inac
curacy and its partisan unfairness. From
these failings the magazine is at least tol
erably exempt. The daily newspaper has
become so untrustworthy with its loose
ness of statement, its disregard of truth
and its often willful perversion of facts
that fair minded men sometimes say that
they find more satisfaction in reading the
journals of the party to which they .ire op
posed than in those of their own political
faith. Xo man can be certain that he has
found the truth anywhero in the newspa
pers until it has been affirmed by a major
ity of them all.
If the monthly magazine ever becomes a
daily newspaper let us hope that its first
and last purposo in life will be to tell the
whole truth accurately. In the feverish
race to "distance all contemporaries" the
daily metropolitan journal too often throws
decency and discretion to the winds.
Things have finally come to such a pass
that none of these will believe the others.
They aro all busy in the discrediting of
each other's news, denying the accuracy of
each other's reports and undervaluing the
enterprises of every one but one their own
journal. In such a state of things what
can bo expected of the general public, look
ing on at the jealous contention from the
outside? Is not the impartial observer
tempted to say, as ho often does, "Gentle
men, you tell the truth about each otherl"
Noah BrookB in Forum.
To Arrest Decaying Teeth.
Mildred wants advice about the teeth.
She is 30, and her teeth were neglected
when young, are irregular, which she sup
poses cannot be helped, and are decaying
fast; but she does not want to have arti
ficial ones. Is there anything that will ar
rest decay? Certainly. Take powdered
charcoal for the stomach daily; brush the
teeth with it till they become white, which
will take a week, perhaps; then use pre
pared chalk and a good tooth wash for
rinsing the teeth after meals. Eat only
bread of entire wheat fiour, as that sup
plies the phosphates for bones and teeth,
and use cracked wheat as a vegetable
freely. It is as good as rice in every way.
There is a candy for children mixed with
phosphates which is said to have a good
effect on the teeth, and is of benefit to older
persons, as I can vouch.
Whether very strict care of health and
diet would result in improvement and new
growth of the materials of the teeth, as
some dentists say has occurred, is a ques
tion, but the advantage in every other way
would be so great the experiment is worth
trying. It certainly ought to arrest de
cay. Acidity of the stomach ruins teeth,
and if this can be prevented crumbling
teeth will last a long tune. Shirley Dare.
It is not to be wondered at that people

Value of Stokers versus Boiler Tubes.
It has been proposed to put safety valves
upon the stoke holes in the great ocean

escape when the pressure is so great that
the boiler tubes and grate bars aro in

that would blow off when the stokers are
in danger there would be much collapse

married as if they had the fresh, crisp cer
tificate pinned on their collars. Tbiy re
turn from the wedding journey a most
barbarous custom, by the way and then
they drop out of sight as completely as if
the earth had swallowed them up. I had
a dim, undefined notion that they suddenly
burst into the state of ordinary, common
place matrimony; that all the little out
ward signs which mk the young mar
ried couple during the honeymoon were
dropped, and that to the casual observer
thoy became as common mortals. But
such is not the case. I have made a dis
covery. A young friend of mino recently leased
& flat in the upper part of this big cdty, on
the corner of Tenth avenue and Harlem or
thereabouts. After tho struggle of mov
ing had been gone through with his wife
took a week for rest and recuperation at
her mother's, and he persuaded me to re
main the week wkh him, to alleviate his
loneliness, as it were. I had noticed that
the section of-tho city m which his flat was
located was composed almost entirely of
great flat buildings and tiny brick houses,
all built in the latest style of architecture.
I thought nothing of it nntil the first even
ing as I got off of tho elevated train at his
station. Then I casually remarked that
thero seemed to be an unusual number of
young men getting off at the unmc placo.
The most of them seemed eager, and were
evidently looking for-samo one. Half way
down the stairs tho youth just in front of
me was met by a good looking young wo
man. An expression of ineffable bliss o'er
ppread the features of both, and oblivious
o tho fact that thoy were blocking tho
way for some thirty or forty passengers,
they kissed with much apparent satisfac
tion. At the foot of the stairs two other
young men were met by two other young
women, and thoy went through with sim
ilar performances. As we passed the first
grocery two young women, who had evi
dently been on tho watch, darted out and
paired off with two young men who had,
down to that momont, worn-the expectant,
eager air of a man who is hunting for a

BOtae onts. There was a fair spriaEnug 01
maid servants, and these I noticed were
provided with two umbrellas, and they did
not wear tho air of intense expectancy
which characterised the majority of tho
gathering. The lady, the chihl and tho
bull pup wero there, and the yelps, screams
and aurgies took place just as I was de
scending ths stairs. Then I knew that
papa had come, and a feciingof infinite
peace stolo through my being. I could not
help sympathizing with such frank and
As 3 matter of fact I cant seo why young
married people shouldn't "spoon" if they
want to. I can see no objection to a man
kissing his own wife if ho is so inclined,
and docs not carry his public demonstra
tions of affection to an objectionable- ex
tent. When a man makes too many prot
estations of affection in public I always
suspect htm of being a brate in private. '
About a dozen years ago I was staying as
a hotel in the Yosemite valley. The next
room to mino was occupied by a married
couple, and tho partition between our
rooms was ouly wall pcipcr pnsU-d oa to
two thicknesses of cheeso cloth. They did
not know that, however. That maa was
in public the most devoted husband I ever
saw. It was "Dearest" and "Darling"
and "Sweetness' every timo he spoko to
his wife. Ho was regarded with admiring
awe by all the married ladies in the hetcl.
But the way he us?d to bully that poor
wifo of his when he got her alone was a
caution to girls contemplating matrimony.
One evening ho was peculiarly abusive,
and I coughed bo as to lot him know that
ho was disturbing mo. Tho next day ho
left tho hotel, and tho room was given to
two girls just out cf boarding school. I
was too modest to rntorrupt thair confi
dences by giving them an imitation of a
man in the last stages of consumption, and
I therefore bocamo tho unwilling possessor
of a vast amount of information concern
ing young mon and women I had never be
fore heard of. So far as my own personal
comfort was concerned, I wished that tho
married couplo had remained.
Tlie exhibition of overaficction is in as
bad tasto as tho stcdied coldness whioh
some of our wouldbo fashionables try to
cultivate. I went to seoeomo friends off
to Europo tho other day, and witnessed tho
farewells of a couplo who aro hanging on
the ragged edges of tha Ioar Hundred,
the friugo on the trousers of society, as it
were. They wero both very English in get
up and both were palpably American. Ht
was arrayed in a largo checked, smuggled
suit, a flat rimmed derby hat and carried
a big cane. He fintteiod himself that ho
looked as if he had come direct from Lon-
