A whiff of Tuxedo's mellow goodness will sweeten
your disposition and make you feel c-a-l-m and peaceful,
like a young man listening to his best girl play the piano.
The Perfect Tobacco for Pipe and Cigarette.
The soothing influence
of Tuxedo is due to the
original "Tuxedo Process."
That wonderful process
puts the rich, natural leaf
in a condition of perfect
mildness and makesTuxedo
the one tobacco that
doesn't bite the tongue or
parch the throat.
Tuxedo is as wholesome
as it is delightful. There's
rest and relaxation in
every pipeful.
Try Tuxedo for a week.
YOU CAN BUY TUXEDO EVERYWHERE

fragrance and flavor arc fine. / tue it
