There is a Great Difference
Tuxedo is the Mildest. Sweetest. Most
Pleasant Smoke in the World, Because
First No one but the makers of Tuxedo
is willing to spend the money necessary to
buy the mildest, choicest, most thoroughly
aged, selected Burley tobacco.
Second No one but the makers of Tux
edo knows how to treat this Burley tobacco
so that every bit of pleasantness and good
ness remains in the tobacco and every bit of
unpleasantness and harshness is taken out.

"Why shouldn't a man be tclU-

gives as cool, sweet and satisfying
a smoke as Tuxedo? "
"Fill my p'pc with Tuxedo and

77i9 Perfect Pipe Tobacco
Tuxedo was born in 1904. Its first imi
tator appeared two years later. Since then a
host of imitations nave been born, and are
clamoring for your patronage.
No imitation is ever as good as the original.
No amount of advertising, no amount of
bluster and bluff, can ever make an imita
tion tobacco as good as Tuxedo.
If you are not a pipe smoker, you are denying
yourself the greatest smoking pleasure known
to man: Jne week ot

more enjoyment than
you have ever had and
at the end of the week
your nerves will be better
