The Alps Will Do Washed Away.
The Alps, from n g6olog!cal point of
view, aro very recent. Tho Welsh
hills, though, comparatively speaking?
Iiislgnldcnnt. are far more ancient
They hnd been mountains for ages and
ages before tho materials whrfh now
compose tho lllgl or tho Hiatus were
deposited. Indeed, wo may say that
it Is because they aro so old that they
havo been so much worn down. The
Alps themselves are crumbling and
being washed away, nnd If no fresh
elevation takes place the time will
como when they will bo no loftier than
Snowdon or Ilelvcllyn. They havo al
ready undergone enormous denudation,
and It has been shown that from the

12.000 feet of strata have been already

In a cigar quality is the prime factor.
Some cigars, even thoso costing a dime,
don't have the quality. The reason our
cigars arft popular is because quality is
our first consideration. Some of our
brands haye bsen on tho market for 25
years and they are the same good cigar
as when first made. Our reputation
for good cigars was eanied by making
quality the first consideration.
