CIGARETTE LIGHTED BY GLOW (Oct, 1933)

CIGARETTE LIGHTED BY GLOW

No larger than a woman’s lipstick, a new mystery cigarette lighter works without flame or electricity. The smoker simply holds his cigarette against the porous top and inhales several times and this lights the smoke. The secret is that a blended fuel containing methyl alcohol is thus drawn through a porous pill containing platinum. Catalytic action, similar to that of platinum gas-stove lighters, causes the pill to glow and light the cigarette. Wind cannot interfere with the use of the lighter, which works if a cotton pad is kept saturated with fuel.

Cigarette Smokers Can Very Easily Make Their Own Menthol Inhalers (May, 1930)

Cigarette Smokers Can Very Easily Make Their Own Menthol Inhalers
ANY cigarette smoker can easily make a menthol inhaler to fight his winter colds. All that is necessary is a small bottle of menthol crystals, some absorbent cotton, a cigarette holder, a smoke instead of a sweet, and the habit. Several of the menthol crystals should be lightly wrapped in the cotton and inserted in the holder before the cigarette is inserted. The smoker will find that he has a much cooler smoke and that the menthol tends to clear the throat and nose when inhaled and expelled through the nose. It will also tend to extract the nicotine from the smoke.
