Fluo Curing Develops the Stimulating Aroma and Testa
Found In Schnapps that Satisfies Tobacco Hunger
There arc three ways used, by farm
ers for curing and preparing their
tobacco for the market; namely, sun
cured, air cured and Hue cured The
old and cheap way is called air cured;
the later discover) and improved way
is called flue cured. In flue-curing
the tobacco is taken from the field
and suspended over intensely hot
flues in houses especially buil to re
tain the heat, and there kept in the
proper temperature until this curing
process develops in the tobacco the
stimulating taste and fragrant aroma
found in Schnapps tobacco, just as
green coffee is made fragrant and
stimulating by the roasting process.'
Only choice selections of this ripe,
juicy flue cured leaf, grown in the
famous Piedmont country, where the
best tobacco grows, are used in

Schnapps and other Reynolds' brands
of high grs.de, flue cured tobaccos.
Hundreds of imitation brands arc
on sale that lack like Schnapps; the
outside of the imitation plugs of to
bacco is flue cured, but the inside is
filled with cheap, flimsy, heavily
sweetened air cured tobacco; one
chew of Schnapps will satisfy tobacco
hunger longer than two chews cf
Hxpert tests prove that this flue
cured tobacco, grown in the famous
Piedmont region, requires and takes
less sweetening than any other kind,
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
satisfying c fleet on chewers. If the
kind of tobacco yen are chew ing don't
satisfy, more than the mere habit of
expectorating, stop fooling yourself
and chew Schnapps tobacco.
