Tobacco Secrets Smokers Should Know. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 19 March 1915

Tobacco Secrets Smokers Should Know. -4----- How many, people, even among the most confirmed smokers, know what is the dillerence between Turkish and Virginian tobaccos? The smoker, of course, can tell you which is which at the first whiff: but if you ask him ?hat tile original dis tinction is between the two he will tell you that one comes from Tulrkey and the other from America. He is wroig. You could grow Turkish andl Virginian tobaccos in the same field, for they are merely two different varieties of the same plant. Turkish is the leaf of "Ni cotiana Augustipolia." Of course, the two are often blended. Again, what constitutes the differ ence between "strong': and '" mild " tobaccos ? It is simple enough. The strong proeluct is so manufac tured that it burns badly-or, per haps one slhould say, slowly-the re sult being that the contained nico tine is distilled in an unaltered state. .Milld tobaccos are those which burn well, and thus their con tained nicotine is consumed or de com...
