When are Your Boys?
.Where are your boys ! We are
asked again and again. They are
scattered up and down the State,
and for the most part, are doing
well. None of them, so far as we
know, are running for office, but
the great majority are making an
honest living, and adding their
share to the strength of the state
It is not policy here to persuade
the boys that they are about the
size for governors, senators and
presidents ; but rather the world
is waiting for honest, sober and
industrious boys who ar willing
to work and who are not ashamed

Tobacco is Mde OTffiELT froi
Grown in the Piedmont
Hundreds of imitation brands are
on sale that 'took like Schnapps to
bacco. The outside of the imitation
plugs of tobacco is flue cured the same
as Schnapps, but -the inside is filled
with cheap, flimsy, heavily swbefened
air cured tobacco. One-cfiew of
Schnapps will satisfy tobacco hunger
longer than two chews of such to
bacco. The color, size and shape
of the tags, plugs and packages of
certain imitation brands of tobacco
have been made so much like
Schnapps that they have often been
accepted by buyers under the belief
that they were getting Schnapps.
Sufficient proof has been' secured
to establish the fact that certain
brands are infringements and n vio
lation of the trade mark laws, yet the
trade will continue to be imposed
upon by these infringers until the suit
already entered and now pending to
protect Schnapps is decided. A
great many of these imitations are

and then you have it the most
wholesome tobacco produced, with
just enough sweetening to preserve
the mild, juicy, stimulating quality of
the leaf tobacco. Expert tests prove
that this flue cured tobacco, grown
in the famous Piedmont region, re-
quires and takes less sweetening than
any other and has a wholesome,
stimulating, satisfying effect on
If the tobacco you are chewing
don't satisfy you more than the mere
habit of expectorating, stop fooling
yourself and chew Schnapps tobacco.
Schnapps is like the tobacco chewers
formerly bought costing from 75c.
to $1.00 per pound ; Schnapps is
sold at 50c. per pound, in 5c. cuts,
