"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
"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
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.

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.
