A batch of Harlem men arc going to tench n country full of people how to smoke , re ports the Now York Sun. It Is safe to say that the average American In not a eclentlflo smoker , OB ho Is not a scientific cater or drinker. The average- American Is too quid : about all these things that make up the luxuries of life. One must go to old Hollauil to learn how to smoke a pipe , and from a Flc'mlah town the Harlem boys have ira- ported the Idea. These Harlem boys have started n. new club , the object of which Is to dotennlno who can keep a pipe alight the longest I. c. , get the most and the best out of a "smoke. " The membership la naturally limited , for few men know the art of reduc ing the fragrant weed ito fishes tn a pipe. The mcmtcr who shows the greatest pro- flclency'at the end of twelve months Is to bo elected president of the club and will scrv the ensuing year. Plpo smoking nlono Is allowed In the club , which has pleasant quarters fitted up with smokers' paraphernalia , The club meets ofliclnlly once a week and the object ot each meeting Is a plpe-amoklug contest. To sustain ibis Ore the longest Is the aim ot c\cry member during tlicao contests. From week to week a record Is kept nnd by ihla too presidency of the club Is determined. One-flfth of the tobacco the ordinary smoker puts Into bis pipe Is wasted. Care less smokers lose much moro. The scentlllo smoker loses nothing and thereby saves a mint of money. Ho lights bis pipe , smokes longer than the careless smoker and lu- clnorntes the entire contents ot hla bowl. What makes n scientific smokerIn the first place < ho must be careful in filling his pipo. Ho determines how long ho wishes to Binoka and measures the quantity of the to- bt-cco he places In the bowl accordingly. Ho takes pains not to pack the/ tobacco either , too bard or too loose. And lie exercise * necessary precaution In the matter o ( light * Ing hla pipe. -Ona thing above all , ho must suit tba character of his favorite style of weed to the material ot bis pipe. Granulated to bacco Is the only fit thing to put Into a meerschaum or a flno church warden clay. Longcut should bo used only in briars and otber wooden pipes. Granulated tobacco tastes best when drawn from meerschaum or clay , although It doea not color tbe former ns quickly as the longcut. Out who care * about that ? Few longcut tobaccos reach tbe smoker In an unadulterated shape ; there fore , It Is tbe beat for outdoor smoking. The granulated gives moro delight wben It U Incinerated between four walls. Tbe Harlem club contests are held with chlrch warden clay pipe * . The contestant * utt around a table. The tobacco | s carefully weighed out by the president or some mem ber ot the club whom he assigns to tbat ' duty. Granulated tobacco Is used and three giainii are glTcn to each contestant. As fast as tbo tobacco Is received , the members _ flll their pipes and the contest begins. On bell Is struck to warn th contestant * to ; make ready. Two minutes are alrowed for. lighting nnd adjusting the flro. A second bell announces the end of the lighting pe riod and those who have- not then lighted are disqualified for the evening's conical. This happens frequently , as air tbe members wait till the last minute to flro. Some ot the most practiced smokers light only on * side. Tbo flro , If skillfully directed , will then spread , following the wall of the bowl , be- I ginning to ascend the other wair , when tht I bottom Is reached. Others light the care- I fully prepared apex and thus obtain a llttlo Incandciicent flro at the center. Another thing the smoker who reduced his tobacco slowly to ashes suffers no effects from nicotine and tbere IN less of It In the granuUted than In the long-cut. There Is no smoke and no talk , the contest going on In silence , so tbat It Is a rest to the tired mind as well. Ono hour and sixteen minutes In the highest - est record held by the president of the Harlem club for smoking ono pipe , but that record may bo broken before tbe close ot the year.
