Mascot a Great Factor In Keeping
Down the Cost of Tobacco
In reference to tobacco, the "high
cost of living" problem, which is at
present occupying the minds of the
American public, finds no foothold
especially since the advent of Mascot
tobacco. As an instance, the manu
facturers of Mascot claim that In sell
ing it for 5 cents they are giving to the
smoking public just as much in quan
tity and quality as is provided by the
famous 10 cent Burlejr tobaccos.
In addition to this, they arguo that
their method of packing Mascot in
moisture-proof pouches (is an ideal
method, both in point of convenience
and ability to retain the original fresh
ness of the tobacco. To quote them:
"Mascot is really a. 10 cent proposition
at a o cent expenditure."
To support these arguments, and to
induce the smokers of this city to ilnd
out for themselves that their claims
are justified, the makers of Mascot
have arranged with local dealers to
give free, for a few days only, a hand
some "Mascot Dog" scarf pin to each
purchaser of a 5 cent pouch of Mascot.
These scarf pins are sure to be in
great demand. (Adv.)
