Since tobacco was first introduced to
civilization, nobody has ever discovered
so supremely satisfactory a way to get
all the flavor and enjoyment out of it
as chewing it And no other form of
chew can give you the hearty, whole

from a delicious high-grade plug tobac

"Hie secret of the greatest chewing
satisfaction lies in the selection of your
chew. Among plug tobaccos the brand
that gets the most enthusiastic en
dorsement is undoubtedly Old Ken

Old Kentucky is made exclusively of
ripe Kentucky Burley—the most richly
flavored chewing tobacco that grows.
Still more, only the very choicest of
all the Burley leaf Is used for Old
This choice leaf is selected with the
most painstaking care, is stemmed by
hand, is thoroughly washed free of all
foreign matter and is pressed into
plugs so slowly that not a drop of
juice or an atom of flavor escapes.
Moreover, Old Kentucky is made under
the most rigid, cleanly and sanitary
