transport ran on a coral reef and the

spent in repairing the damage to the

natives were as a rule poor fighters,
Sergeant Thompson says. They were
armed with guns of almost every con- i
cehable kind, most of which were of j
a very ancient pattern. Moreover, they
were very unskilled in the handling
of firearms. The average Filipino, said ,
Sergeant Thompson, had thc idea
that the usefulness of a gun consisted
in thc noise it made and consequently

Join with other famous Americans
in Praising Tuxedo Tobacco
THE history of Tuxedo tobacco is unique in
many respects. The now famous "Tuxedo
process" by which all the bite and sting is
removed from the best old Burley tobacco was
discovered by Dr. R. A. Patterson, a physician of
Richmond, Virginia, the founder of the R. A. Pat
terson Tobacco Company.
Many of Dr. Patterson's friends, because their
mouths and throats were so sensitive, were com
pelled to deny themselves the comfort and satisfac
tion of pipe smoking. Like all other men, the
Doctor realized that complete smoke delight was
possible only with a pipe. So he put his scientific
mind to work on the problem.
He originated the now famous "Tuxedo pro
cess" of treating the mildest, sweetest, most
thoroughly aged Burley tobacco and the result was

The Perfect Tobacco for Pipe and Cigarette
Tuxedo grew rapidly in public favor without advertising;
without any push of any kind, its natural growth reached the stu
pendous total of fifty or sixty million packages a year. Not until
the past few months has it been possible to keep up with the
demand for Tuxedo. Now increased facilities make it possible for
every man to smoke this best of tobaccos.
Famous Americans in every walk of life smoke and endorse
Tuxedo. Our world-famous athletes the men who triumphed
for America at the Olympic Games in Stockholm are among the
thousands who declare that Tuxedo is not only extremely enjoy
able, but beneficial. "
Tuxedo has many imitators, but no successful one because
no one has yet discovered the "Tuxedo process" that makes
Tuxedo the most enjoyable pipe-smoke in the world.
