Cigarette Holder Filters Smoke (May, 1932)

Cigarette Holder Filters Smoke

TO MAKE a cigarette holder that filters and cools the smoke, procure a small size corncob and a close-grained cork. Trim the cork so that it fits tightly into the bowl with about 1/4 inch of the cork projecting to make removal of stubs easy.

For a filter and cooler, place a small cotton wad and menthol crystals in the bowl. With a red hot iron burn a hole through the center of the cork to hold the cigarette. Then cut the cork in half, place the fag between the corks and insert in the pipe.

Double-Bowl, Single-Stem Pipe for Two-Fisted Smokers

FOR double – barreled smoking enjoyment, pipe lovers are invited by the proprietors of a New York City tobacco shop to try out their latest development, the twin-bowl, single-stem pipe pictured at the right. Something like burning his pipe at both ends, the smoker fills and lights both bowls, and draws smoke from each through a slender bit that taps the center of the pipe’s double-ended stem. The idea for the novel tobacco furnace originated with the artist who draws the popular newspaper cartoon Smokey Stover.

Cigarette Ignites Like Match (Jan, 1933)

Cigarette Ignites Like Match
BECAUSE a smoker often has a cigarette but no match with which to light it, an inventor has developed a self-lighting fag which eliminates use of matches. The idea is unique in its field and should be received with favor by all tobacco users who have been caught in a similar predicament. The device consists of a container and its pack of specially prepared cigarettes. Each cigarette has an oxidized fiber ring added to the tip that ignites immediately, like an ordinary match, when the fag is rubbed on the side.

A long steel rod attached to the handle and extending into the hollow of the cane carries a briquette of highly inflammable material, the chemical composition of which is secret. When the handle is thrust into the cane quickly, the air compression is said to ignite the composition. The substance glows like a pocket light. It is extinguished by thrusting back the steel tube.

The mild cigarette the athletes smoke is the mild cigarette for YOU! (Jun, 1935)

The mild cigarette the athletes smoke is the mild cigarette for YOU!


A cigarette so mild you can smoke all you want— that’s what athletes say about Camels. And when a champion talks about “condition”—”wind”—healthy nerves — real tobacco mildness—he knows what he’s talking about.

Listen to Gene Sarazen. “Traveling and playing as much as I do—I have to keep in condition. I smoke Camels steadily. They’re so mild they never get my ‘wind’ or nerves.”
