Miles of Cigarettes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 March 1899
Miles of Cigarettes. Taking the population of tho British inlands at tmrly-eight millions, a trade journal assumes that 10 per cent are cigarotte-sniukerB, and thatitbey con sume on an average five a day all the year ronnd. This would give a total of nearly seven thousand millions. The tobacco contained in this number of cigarettes would weigh over nine thousand three hundred tons, and if it were stowed in carts, each carrying a ton, and the carls were marshalled in aline with 20ft for each hone and vehicle, a 'procession would be formed over 35 miles long. It would yield Customs duty amduuting to more than three and n quarter millions of money. .Reckoning ' each cigarette to be 3in'| long, the total length of 7,000,000,000of them would be upward* of 331,000 miles, or more than enough to circle the globe nearly 14 times round. It would make a Hue from here to the moon and nearly half the way back again.
