A CIGAlt EOX'S STAMS.
THEY GIVE INFORMATION REGARD
ING THE CIGAR INSIDE.
IT Ton Bay Imported Cigars It Will Pay
You to Take Heed of tho Various
Brands and labels What Most of the
Colored Posters Mean Homo Brands.
The interior wrappings and lithographs
tell about the cigar when the box is opened,
but more can be told about it from the
outside. It requires somewhat close ob
servation to note all the marks on a cigar
box. On a box of imported cigars, for in
stance, there is branded the name of the
manufacturer. That is usually tho name
of some factory and the placo where the
factory is. The name of the factory gives
an Indication about its location. The brand
"Campa Gral de Tabaco del Filipinas"
shows unmistakably where the cigars that
were put in thRt box were made, unless
the brand is a counterfeit. It is seldom
that counterfeit brands ore found on im
ported cigars, as the import stamp is a
guarantee that the cigar has gone through
the custom house. This stamp is put on
first. Each of the Havana factories has
Its stamp, the Garcia, the Clay, tho Caro
lina, or whatever it may be, on the lid of
the box. It may bo hid afterward by tho
revenue stamp and lithographs, but tho
Urst thing done is to brand that name on.
Tho Havana cigars frequently havo
stamped on them also "Unban a," with tho
Spanish abbreviation designating the qual
ity of tobacco or tho bize. This is put on
when the boxes are sorted out to be filled;
tho stamp of tho factory is put on them in
tho first place. This stamp also is not
branded liko the factory Btamp, but is put
on with a stenciL Tho name of the fac
tory can not bo taken off without planing
Into the lid, but tho brand of tho quality
and color can.
Before the cigars are put in the box is fur
ther branded with the color'cluro," "color
adoclaro," "Colorado," "coloradomaduro,"
"maduro," or, as known to Americans, very
mild, mild, medium, fairly strong and
strong. These aro not enough grades to
mark tho various distinctions in color and
strength, but they are generally approxi
mated. Borne brands of Colorado claro ci
gars are milder than the claro cigars of
other brands, but the mildest ones aro al
ways put into tho claro boxes. There has
been soma change iu the strictness of
marking in recent years caused by tho
fact that the American trade prefers
Colorado claro and claro to the maduro
and Colorado maduro.
When the box has beon marked in this
way it is filled and the llnal tacks are put
in. Tho manufacturer usually then pastes
somo advertisements on it in order that
tho box may not be oponed and other cigars
substituted without its being evident to
tho purchaser. Manufacturers have labels
which they paste over tho seams, which
contain advertisements and notices of va
rious kinds. If tho manufacturer has taken
prizes at any international exhibition fac
similes of tho medals will probably bo
found on the labels. Usually thero is a
picture of the factory, with tho firm name,
ooat-of-arms and other designs. In this
uhape the box is ready to bo sent here.
It arrives with tens of thousands of other
boxes and is examined by an inspector.
He pastes over it the import stamp so that
tho box cannot bo opened without destroy
ing tho stamp. Tho import stamp certifier
to tho number of cigars in the box and that
the tax is paid. Besides that thero aro
blank spaces on tho Stamp which tho in
spector fills out with n stenciL
When filled up the stamp shows not only
that the cigars went through the custom
house, but tho steamer in which they came,
the port at which they wero entered, tho
date on which they wero received and
stamped, and the name of tho inspector
who stamped them. This is an unfailing
certificate of tho length of time tho cigar
has been in the country. Tho stamps aro
linely mado, in ordor to prevent counter
feit; there is more tracery and vignetto
work than on the ordinary revenue stamp.
When the import stamp has been pasted
on tho box tho internal rovenuo stamp is
put on before tho cigars can bo sold. Tho
internal revenue stamp is a cheaper affair
on bluish-green paper. It is canceled at
the same time that it is put on, and with a
stamp which, if it were plain, might show
the date; but this stamping is done much
more hastily, and docs not aid in the his
tory of the cigar.
A cigar box with an internal revenue
stamp on it and no import stamp does not
onco in 50,000 times contain imported
cigars, smuggled or otherwise. Some of
the fictitious smugglers who go around
among downtown offices and peddle cigars
which they say are imported produce them
in boxes with only the internal lovenuu
stamp on. Smuggled cigars have no
stamps whatever. Any cigars that go
through the customhouse havo the import
ed stamp and tho internal revenuo stamp
both.
A cigar which has only an internal rev
enuo stamp iias been stamped at somo do
mestic factory. If it was smuggled it was
taken to u factory to be stamped, which
would bo foolishness nnd wasto of money
on tho part of the smuggler, and bosides
he would run a great deal of risk, as tho
internal revenue officer who stamped tho
box could readily tell, if ho was an export
in his business, the difference between tho
boxes used in the Havana trado and the
boxes used in the domestic trade. Thero
uro details in tho way of packing, litho
graphing and branding whioh show unmis
takably, unless they aro very cleverly coun
terfeited. A man who is going to buy cigars nnd
wants to be sure of what ho is getting can
tell by the box if it has not been opened.
It is moro risk to take an opened box, for
nome unscrupulous dealers will put cheap
er cigars into a box which hold high grade
cigars nnd sell them as imported cigars.
Still theso dealers often make mistakes, as
it is hard for them to got the same size of
domestic cigars nnd tho same color. If a
man is buying what is said to lw nn im
ported cigar, and sees that the cigar is
dark while tho box is marked claro, ho
may be sure that there is some imposition
homewbere, probably that the dealer in re
filling the box was not careful enough to
put in cigars of the same color But tho
bt'st way to do is to examine the box first
nnd then to have the dealer open it after
ward to see if the cigars aro what is wauted.
The age of the cigar can be told from tho
import stamp, the color from the brand on
the back of the box, the factory from tho
factory brand and tho bhaj)e from the size
of the box. Almost eerythiug about
cigars which go through the standard
Havana factories can be told without
opening the box. A cigar box with tho
blue label of the Cigarmakers' Interna
tional union does not hold imported but
domestic cigars. Domestic cigars can fur
ther be told by an examination of tho
1kx and the stamp and the warning not to
U60 tho box again, which has on it tha
district and the number of the factory.
According to law the warning must be on
the box; it is a sine sign of a domestic
cigar. New York bun.

A MONSTER SEA SERPENT.
Tire 3Icn Docrlbe a GlRantlo Monstros
ity of I'lalt Trap Luke.
A party of va persons, all gentlemen,
arrived home from a four days' visit to
Fish Trap lako, about threo miles bolow
Galena, 111 , a place not only famous
among anglers thereabouts, but as being
the same lody of water in which was dis
covered the huge serpent fish which
created so much excitement among people
generally and discussion among naturalists
esecially about ten years ago.
The Intense interest which was then ex
cited has been greatly magnified by the
fact that this particular monster, judging
from reliable and detailed accounts that
have been received, has aqain made its ap
pearance, and was seen by every one of the
five gentlemen comprising the party above
referred to on the afternoon of the day
previous to their departure for home.
"We were out in the middle of the lake
trolling for salmon and pike," said one of
tho number on being questioned, "and
were drifting along almost imperceptibly
on its perfectly Bmooth surface toward the
western extremity, propelled by the lisjht
breeze prevailing from the east, when sud
denly the wr.ter about us became fearfully
agitated, the boat commenced to heave and
rock, and we were wondering with
blanched faces what could be the cnue of
the phenomenon when, beforo a single
word could be uttered, a sight presented
itself which not one of us will ever forget
to our dying day, though we live to be as
old as Methuselah.

narrator in resoonse to an inauirv. "Yes.

f ior u. so viuaiy impressed itself upon my
mind that were I an artist I could dra v
tho scene with lifelike perfection and ac
curat''. I was looking down into the lake
from the sternsheets of the boat to discov
er, if possible, some cause for the singular
movement of the water which threatened
to submerge us, when like a flash there
emerged from its seething breast, and not
more than ten rods away, a half fish, half
serpent monter, fully thirty feet m
length, the exposure from extremity to ex
tremity being complete, as it lay upon the
water after reaching the surface.
"Its appearance was heralded by a shont
from the huge creature, exactly like that
of a fretful horse, which threw a column
of water into the air like the spouting of a
whale, the mist from which completely
saturated our clothing. The head and
body of the animal to its middle were
shaped like that of a sturgeon, with
a long, narrow top fin and a forward fin
on either side, just back of the gills. The
eyes were black and beadlike, and two
holes for spouting or throwing water were
plainly discernible cs top of the head. The
body from the center to the after extremity
was that of a serpent, without fins of any
kind, tho tail tapering to a point like tha:
of a pilot or bull snake.
The hiaeous monstrosity lay prone
upon the water for a half dozen seconds or
more, when it started for the mouth of
the lake, swimming with great Tokxaty,
its body partly out of the water. Stricken
with awe mingled with terror, we watched
it in silence until it paused out into the
Mississippi, when it dove downward on
reaching the channel and was seen tu
mora. Fortunately Adam Bell, a trusts

A remarkable thing, it may bo said,
about Fish Trap lake is its extreme depth,
the bottom in some places never having
been reached with any of the lines used in
sounding. It sets directly beck from the
Mississippi river, and is a mile and a quar
ter in length and a half mile in breadth,
its banks being bordered with heAvy tim

with the Mississippi is formed by a mouth
thirty or forty rods wide. It vr&s former

News gathering, as it is understood and
practiced in America, is tabooed in En
glish journalism. Reporters work in
restricted paths. They cannot interview
and must not anticipate anything in the
way of news. If Bob Smith, after a long
career of brutality, is at last arrested for
beating his wife, tho bare fact may bo

not ba given until they are bet forth ofli-

Sir Humphrey Makeshift elope with
Squire Bolingbroko's wifo a discreet silence
must be preservod until a bill for divorce
is filed, and then it is of ten prudent to only
hint at the names of the parties until the
trinl begins. No comments must be mado
on a case sub judice. Everything must
"happen" in the fullest son- of the Urm
beforo it can be presented to novtpior
readers, and then it must bu set forth in a
stiff, established form.
Sensationalism is frownwl upon, person
alities rigidly prohibited aud pitpmnt gos
sip strictly forbidtlwn. In fact an Knglnh
reporter gets no chaaco to "spread" him
self. He may report a speech in the bust
stylo known to the stenographic wit; he
may write up a flro in storootyiKsd phnwrfv,
or give tho list of prizes at a liower show
with the descriptive aid of the catalogue,
hut to presume to exerciso his fancy iu re
cording tho shifting scenes of life would
entail upon him the severest kmd of
censure, if not instant dismissal, with tho
editorial verdict that ho was a disgrace to
the profession.
One result of this policy of repression is
that the reporter becomes a more machine.
He goes through a daily routine mechani
cally, takes and transcribes hia shorthand
notes like an automaton, and luldlitt his
brain with parrot like phrases that have
done duty for tune immemorial, and will
probnbly continue to enhance tho dnincss
of British journalism uiitil the crack of
doom, lie is a reporter pure nnd simple,
whose ears have to be acuter than his eyes,
and whose usefulne5s is graded according
to his ability to write shorthand and his
celerity of transcription. Whatever de
scriptive matter is needed by a British
newspaper is generally done by a "special
commissioner," whose work is heavy com
pared with thut of the average American
news gatherer, but who would feel insulted
were he classed with the ordinary reporters
of his journal.
The highest ambition of an English re
porter is to bo employed on tho parliament
ary staff of a London daily. Great pains
aro taken with parliamentary reporting,
each journal maintaining a separate forco
of from five to eighteen men. Som of tho
newspapers only give the leading speeches,
but Tho Times prints a very full report,
devoting three or four pages a dny to tha
proceedings of both houses. Tho Ilau
sord.iwhich is recognized as the official roo
ord of the debates, is made up largely from
Tho Times' report, member having tho
privilege of clipping from its pages and
extending nnd correcting their remarks
before publication in the oilicial volumes.
The Times lias the largest reporting staff
in parliament. The men begin uilh
"turns" of half an hour or twenty min
utes; late at night the "turns" are cut
down to five or ten minute, and tho re
porters drive Ut Printing House square to
transcribe their notes Tbear quarters aro
very comfortable. An extensive reference
library is at their command, ami so that
they may nut be disturbed in their work of
transcription servants are constantly at
their elbows to supply every want.
In tho matter of accommodation, both

ment. Englishmen do not chango their
situations mucu. It is no uncommon;
thing to find reporter who have been con
nected with the same journal for thirty or
forty years. When they roach the retiring
age in some oflices they receive n third or
half their salary fer bfe. Compositors fre
quently step in fer pensions af:er loos ser

way with the sub-editor aa to what shall or

the pick of the craft. Earh one acquired
considerable editorial abtuty: he in not a
; slavish follower of "copy," but reads for
I tho sense, and is on the alert for blunders
of omiion or commission. Hid proofs aro
remarkably cleoq, and tho printer keeps
him up to the highest notch of perfection,
bome of the printers ire a little too auto
cratic and exacting. One on The Standard
some years ago forbade the use of slngt to
