That's why it has won milliona of chewers every year, until now more is sold than all 8-tnilar tobaccos. SCHNAPPS, the most popular prod? uct of the Reynolds factoriea, is man ufaetured in the very heart of the Pied? mont tobacco belt, known to the world as producing tobacco with an aroma so dellghtful and appetizing that it lntroduced and popularized thechew ing of tobacco. The Clean, Pure Chew is manufactured by the cleanest and most healthful processes ever devised, under the direction of men who have made the chewing tobacco business a life study, and who have managed the R. J. Rey? nolds Tdbacco Company slnce 1875. Only choice selections of thoroughly cured leaf are used in SCHNAPPS, and expert tests prove that this class of tobacco requires and' takes a smaller amount of sweetening than any other kind of tobacco grown?and that it has a wholesome, stimulating and satisfying effect ori chewers, besides being the most economical. There are a great many imitations claiming to be "just as good" as SCHNAPPS, but there is only one gen* uine SCHNAPPS. Be sure the letters on the tag, and under the tag, spell S-c-h-n-a-p-p-s. There are more pounds of SCHNAPPS chewed every year than the total amount of all similar kinds. Internal revenue statistics show that SCHNAPPS and others of the Rey? nolds brands won enough chewers in one fiscal year to makea net gain of six and a quarter million pounds, or one third of the entire increased consumption in the United States on chewing and smoking tobacco. SCHNAPPS is made and sold every where in 5c. cuts and 10 and 15c. plugs. R. J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO CO., Wlnston-Salem, N. C. HIHEI CARS One Killed and Ten Injured in Crash $Jear Allentown.
