"Yoi , domestic cigars nro Rotting poorer every year , nnd the qunhty of the foreign ones on the market is likewise inferior to the grades ex posed for sale n few seasons ago. There is no perceptible decrease in price , cither to dealer or consumer , nnd ono cannot readily understand why the brands now on the market nro no poor. Of course the tax is excessive - cossivo on both homo nnd imported ciiinrn ; but then , in spite of such duties , bolter cigars should bo sup plied for the price. Ton years ago. oven , n comfortable smoke could bo procured in Nan York for 15 cents , n fur bettor ono than can now bo had for almost double the money , This was not on ing to lessoned duties , but to the fact that there wore not so many smokers , and that potter wrapper. ! nnd fillers wore used in tha manufao * tuao , nnd that n cicar WAS seldom ex posed for sale until it was thoroughly cured , Now , however , nil is changed , and one-half of the domestic cigars nro smoked before they have liad time to take on n sweat. " The speaker was an old cigar-dealer , nnd the nbovo plain tnlkiNnsuddrcssed to The Star reporter , who had in vested in n cigar with n foreign name that drew as hard as h canal boat. As the wood ho had been purchased over the dealer's counter , lie felt in duty bound to nay something by way of apoloey. By degrees the scribe led him to speak about the tricks of the trade. "Tho majority ot cigars , " said the dealer in smokers' articles , "are ilav- orcd now a days. This expedient is resorted to in order to conceal the in ferior quality of tobacco used in the manufacture. A decoction of opium and rum will impart n delicious scent to the toltacco , nnd also cauao it to burn quickly. They are hurtful , however , 'as every ono knows. After smoking a hnlf dozen such alleged Hnvanas in a day , the brain and lungs seem disordered , the tongue is burnud nndsnollon. and liny blisters appear in the mouth. No matter how pobr the tobacco , there would bo no such injurious results were it not for the drugs used in ita manufacture. When a man gets hold of a gctiuino Havana in the present generation ho experi ences something akin to a foretaste of Paradise. " The statement made by the tobacco nist proved an incentive for an in quiry into the manufacture nnd im portation of cigars in the city ot Now York and the revenue to the covorn- mont from that source. During the past year , G81,7C2 pounds of tobacco entered the port of Now York in a legitimate manner , and prabnbly ono- tor'Ji ns much morp was smuggled in. The amount of duties paid on impor tations of cigars was $2,073,145. About GOO.OOO.OOO domestic cigars wore turned out , nnd probably 175- 000,000 were smoked in the city. The remainder were sent out through the United States to the trade. Now Now York also made about 275,009- 000 cigarettes , of which ono-half were consumed by her cigarette smoking young men and women. The exact revenue to thogovernment could not bo ascertained , as the fiscal year does not end until July. It is aafo to say , however , that the sum total ag gregates millions , as ono firm alonu paid a tax of $311,879. "Imported cigars were never in greater demand , " aaid the largo whole sale dealer in imported goods to the reporter. "Henry Clays and Boinas are still the favorites , and command all the prices from $75 to $250 a thou sand. A fair cigar can bo furnished for $120 a thousand , but if a person desires a good article , ho must of nec essity pay a Higher figure. The grades which are most in demand are these that can bo sold ever the coun ter for fifteen cents single or two for tnonty-firo cents. ' 'Straight tons" and "throe for a quarter" grades nro usually domestic cigars bearing Span ish names , Key West , fair article , range from $75 to $125 a thousand. There is no denying the fact that im ported brands nro inferior to to the importations of ton years ago. There is so great a demand for them that the quality of tobacco is not nearly so fine ; and then , again , tboro nro moro ma- ohino made goods put on the market. Many of the manufacturers inako their cigara at homo irom imported tobacco ; but if devoid of flavoring the average smoker can discern the fraud , for no matter how fine the tobacco , the cigar will not euro so evenly as it docs in the tropics. " "While opium is probably used by some manufacturers in the manufact ure of cigars , w have never * used a grain of it , " was the statement of the manager of a largo factory , in conver sation with the reporter. "If a cus tomer orders say 10,000 cigars of a special brand and wishes thorn flav ored , wo put a little Santa Cruz rum in the bottom of the boxes , and the flavor is obtained Last season wo manufactured 01,047,400 cigars and 5,158,180 cigarettes , and all without a partical of opium , I am opposed to the tenement house cigar , and wo soil none that are turned out in suoh places. They are not clean and are composed of inferior tobacco , " "Wo nro distributing about 2,000- 000 cigars a month , " said another manager. "This includes both do mestic and imported goods , but mainly the former. Wo make two great specialties , a 5 cent and 10 cent cigar , and can furnish as good a domestic cigar us can bo imported for $110 a thousand. The half-dime grades , which are sold to the trade at $40 n , thousand , are most in demand. Ono of our brand , 'No. 5 , ' is soiling at the rate of $1,000,000 a month , We use no opium in any shape whatever The cheapest goods on the market are quoted at $11 a thousand. They are from Pcimsylvania , made by farmers , and in this city by apprentices , from adulterated goods. Wo very seldom got hold of nn article that has boon smuggled. Dealers in such goods usually have distributing agencies of their own , and are afraid to offer thorn to responsible dealers. " The manufacture of cigars in tene ment houses has become a great in dustry in Now York. The cost of production is from $1 to $3 less per thousand , and tl'o cigar , if made from a fair grade of tobacco , will Btnoko almost as well aa these turned out in first-class factories , Aa a rule , however , the goods used are pour , and no cnro is exorcised in the wrap ping. Opium nnd poor liquor nro treoly applied to the loaf before being rolled , and the cigar is thus made to burn freer and is given a stimulating tnsto. Many of the tenement house products are reeking with infectious nisoAso , nnd there can bo no doubt but what sickness is in many instances disseminated in _ this manner. Infe rior grades of cigarettes nro nlao doc tored with opium , nnd work much harm to their consumers. CIBC17S FLYINQ MACHINES. Bprlnpra nnd Lovers That Hurl Men Headlong Through , the Air. Nets York bun. A trick , which is vury little under stood , is the "norlal dancer , " of which Sig. Farini is the originator , although it lias been patented in the form first soon hero by other persons. It was in 1807 that , seeing n boy nt play with A ball at the end of n rubber cord , the quorry occurred to him , "Why , if I have n proportionately strong string of a rubber , can I not flirt n man about as that boy docs his ball ? " About that time George Conquest was doing the "Lulu jump , " in n way of his own , by moans of nn _ invisible wire counter-weighted behind tlio scones , and that gave another idea to Farini , for the combination of rubber springs and a wire to produce the now ofloct , As ho was too bu.sy to work upon it Imnsolf , ho gave the idea to n man named Dando , who brought it out. As performed in theatres , the aerial dancer requires three machines. The ilrst of these consists simply of nnwiftly-trav oiling spiral , and rubber springs sufll ciontly strong to balance t'io ' dancor's iroight. With this apparatus the por- 'armor at each bound rises twenty or .hirty foot from the etago and alights [ igain , either upon the floor or an out stretched hand , with the lightness nnd grace of a butterfly settling down upon n flower , every motion boingcontroilod by the turning nnd stopping of the apirnl. The second machine has springs , with n tension n littlojcss than the performer's weight , which allows n downward leap , with easy alighting , from a great height. The third ma chine is exactly the reverse , with nn excess of strength in the springs , nnd cflcctsan astonishing apparent upward leap from the stage out of sight among the mysterious rngion of "sky bor ders" nloft These three machines have now been combined in ono , with great simplicity and effect , by Sig. Farini , for working from the ground in a circus tout instead of from the "flies" of a theatre. There nro three wheels , laid to gether , with a circumference respec tively of 15 fcot , 1C foot and 3 feet. Around the first passes the wire which is attached to the performer ; around the second , a rope which , ns it h pulled by men behind a screen , gov erns the movements of the individual at the end of the wire ; around the third , a strap attached to rubbers of sufficient tension to/ / overcome the performer's weight. Then there is a narrow drum , upon which air encir cling steel band acts as a brake to make the dancor's motions slower or swift , or stop him at any point. Full ing on the rope strotcfiea the rubbers to their fullest extent and allows the dancer to touch the ground ; releasing it lots the rubber springs act , and , if desired , jerks him up sixty foot or ono foot , just as the hand of the brake regulate the forco. The aerial dancer wears a cloao-fit- ting shape of strong canvas , extending from the arms almost to the knees , so ns to give perfect support to the body. On the back of this shape is firmly sowed a largo piece of strong leather , and fastened through leather and can vas is a heavy iion plato with a slot , into which fits a thimble on the end of the supporting wiro. The thimble is securely hold in place by a catch , to which is attached a string that passes down through the dloevo to the loft hand. By this arrangement the per former may , in an instant and unno ticed , free himself from the apparatus ; and by walking freely about the stage , increase the mystification of the spec tators , for the slender wire .is at best moro a thing of reason and faith than of sight to most beholders. 13ut care must bo exorcised not to pull that little tlo string at the wrong" moment , Con quest , when dancing at Wallack'swith the aid of this apparatus , inadvertent ly pulled the string when sixteen foot above the stage , and whmi picked up was found to have some teeth knocked out and ribs cracked. Still another of Sig. Farini's cur ious show inventions in a now appa ratus for doing in a circus in a moro incomprehensible manner than ever before the ole "marvellous aerial sus pension act. " As innvmorablo magi cians have for many yoara familiarized the public wih it , the person to bo suspended , stood before the audience with ono elbow resting upon a staff , nnd in that position wna apparently thrown into a trance. Then tiio per former raised the foot of his subject , and the body , only supported by the elbow on the staff , remained rigidly extended at anyanglo up to a horizon tal position. The trick was all in a thin steel plato , fitting to and support , ing the body , with n ratohot arrange ment which caught and hold at any point up to a right anglo with the staff. Incredible. F. A.
