'A Cigar Wrapper Often

You know quite well that there are many cigars sold
for five cents that are very poor quality. They are sold
on appearance. A fine appearing wrapper, a handsome
gold band or a pretty box-lid may cover a multitude of
sins, but it is the filler, the inside of a cigar, that deter
mines its smoking quality.
Modern manufacture exemplified in the American
Cigar Company's products has grown way above this un
fortunate method of doing business and assures a cigar
that is honest all through.
The "Triangle A" merit mark on a box of cigars
means that every sprig of leaf in every cigar in the box
was graded especially by experts for that one brand, two
years before it was made ; that during this time the leaf
has mellowed in great, clean warehouses in a perfect tem
perature till all its finest qualities are brought to a point
These are some of the reasons why "Triangle A"
cigars smoke with the fine mellow flavor that you thought
was only to be found in expensive brands ; why every
"Triangle A" dgar has an even flavor and aroma from
end to end; why every cigar of each "Triangle A" brand
smokes just the same.
"Triangle A" cigars cost you no more than the
"mixed" cigars though they are worth twice as much.
Look for the "A" Triangle A) when you buy cigars.
' " Triangle A " brands offer the widest obtainable range of choice,
and absolutely dependable quality in whatever brand suits your taste.
You'll never find a better brand to make the test with than
The New VM
Every box is now extra-wrapped in glassine paper, sealed at each
end with the "Triangle A" in red. The cigars are kept clean, fresh
and in perfect smoking condition until the box is opened.
