"I cannot believe the Senate of the

control of railroads, telegraph and

The tobacco that is
honestly "different"
Virginia-Carolina tobacco has every quality
that a good cigarette tobacco should possess?
flavor, fragrance and body plus a certain "liveli
ness of taste" that other tobaccos do not have.
That is why Virginia-Carolina does not need
to be mixed with other tobaccos, but tastes best
smoked straight, in a cigarette made entirely
of Virginia-Carolina.
If you want all of that rich flavor and that
lively, different taste, smoke Piedmonts. These
'cigarettes are made entirely from Virginia
Carolina and from the choicest selections of
the Virginia-Carolina crops.
The "Virginia ~ Carolina Cigarette
NOTE?Virginia-Carolina tobacco, unlike foreign
Grown tobaccos, has no Import duty to pay. That
is why Piedmont's quality docs not cost you more.
Import duty docs not make a cigarette taste any
better. Why not get ?.11 your mor.c/'i YWJVU W
