lic a new cigar that was designed to set a new standard in value at 5 cents. Months of careful thought were put into the matter before the ambitions of the makers were realized. First of all, it was to be a better smcke—a smoke that would be crammed just as full of real quality as was possible at the price. So a filler of only the choicest domestic and Havana tobaccos, and a Sumatra wrapper, were decided upon. Next followed weeks of blending until a combination was perfected that had just the right aroma, without any "kick" to it. Then arose this question—Why not a LONGER, as well as a BETTER smoke. The Londres Grande shape seemed to best carry out this thought—and as there were no five cent cigars of that shape on. the market at the time its choice also meant individuality—so it was decided upon. And when this bigger, better five cent cigar was perfected they christened it KING OSCAR That was twenty-five years ago. CJ For a quarter century King Oscar cigars have been made with the same careful thought as the first handful back in 1891— CJ For a quarter century the same regular quality has been maintained— For a quarter century King Oscar has been gaining new friends every day— and holding them— For a quarter century its popularity has swept beyond the boundaries of Harris burg, until today King Oscars are demanded and sold in every hamlet in Central Pennsylvania— * Q For a quarter century King Oscar has sustained its reputation for quality and quantity, and thousands upon thousands of smokers today, by their regular patronage, proclaim King Oscars among 5c cigars "THE DADDY OF THEM ALL" And to army of men who have learned to depend upon King Oscar for an enjoyable smoke at the cost of a nickel, we pledge for the future a strict adherence to the same regular quality that has won their favor in the past.

Alburtis is the junction of the Kast Penn and Catasauqua and Fogels ville railroads. The cut-off, which will be run on the south side of the Lehigh Mountain, via Vera Cruz, will be four teen miles long. The eastern terminus will be at the coke plant, although freight from this line can be delivered to any part of the steel works. The route from Al burtis to Bethlehem, via Allentown. also owned by the Reading, is not much longer, but is so crowded, es pecially in the Allentown yards, that Mr. Schwab has induced the Reading to build the new line.
