In his young days, his majesty smoked cigarettes and nothing else, but now he Is more fond of a good cigar than "tobacco wrapped in paper." His everyday cigar is said to be specially made for liim in Cuba, of the finest tobacco.

The position was tragic, for the wind was tearing over the prairie. In order to decide who should attempt to keen the soli tary match alight in the wind lots were drawn with blades of grass. The dire responsibility fell upon the king. He lay on the ground and his companions gathered round him with outstretched coats as shelter. The match was light ed, so were all the cigars. Never before or since has the 'king felt so nervous as when he struck that match in the vast American prairie miles away from any town or village. The German emperor smokes 15c 19c 35c cigars and cigarettes out of doors, but when in the privacy of his study he puffs at a small wooden pipe of the type fav ored ythe average Smoker and cost ing about half a crown.

Edwin Booth, the tragedian, often smoked twentv-five cigars a day, and his dresser used to stand in the wings with a lighted cigar in his hand ready for the actor when he made his exit. Dr. Norman Macleod, a famous Scottish preacher, used to keep a box of cigars in his vestry and after service would regale himself with a "puff" much to the hor ror of his elders.
