THE CIGAR It is no mere coincidence that a man carries his cigar next
to his heart. Badge of his majority-throughout his manhood, in the seclusion of his
thoughts and on his far excursions, it is his intimate companion. The young man sees his
dreams of conquest take form in its curling smoke. The old man in his easy chair blows
retrospective rings without regret. In the good brown leaf is solace for the loser and
exultation for the victor. It glows at the wedding feast; heralds the new born and turns
to ashes at the wake. A man's smoke! Light a Dutch Master, the pleasure's all yours.
1 C and up the pleasure's all yours
