Tobacco stores are most kept by wooden Injuns, who stand by the door and try to foul little boys by offering I hem a bunch uf cigars, which is glued in the Injun's hand and is made of wood also. Hogs do not like tobacco. Neither do 1 Tobacco was invented by a man named Walter Raleigh. When the people first saw him smoking they thought he was a steam boat, and as they had never seen a steam? boat, they were frightened.
