Walking-Stick Supplies a Light for the Smoker (Mar, 1922)

Walking-Stick Supplies a Light for the Smoker

A CIGAR-LIGHTER in a walking-cane is a novelty that is being introduced in France. The lighter is operated by compressed air.

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.
