My rare Havanas-unpurchas able in any store-cost you half what they should because you and I deal together personally. The dealer's profit goes to you. Yet you get that same delight ful cigar I myself have smoked for over 40 years. Today 12,000 discriminating smokers say I am a full-fledged connoisseur. I'm Hard to Please This business was started by my friends, who used to depend on me to divide up my private stock. The circle grew. Before long I kept a friend in Cuba busy selecting only the finest tobacco. Today I command the choicest plants grown in the mountainous Vuelta district-noted for its most expensive tobacco. I sold over 2,000,000 cigars last year. Since I pay no salesmen's salaries or expenses, I can afford to sell my private monogram J. R . W. pana tela for $5.00 per hundred, $2.60 for fifty, charges prepaid. That's not far from cost. Decide for Yourself Once you smoke a few of my cigars-so mild and sweet-you'll want more. Not merely because you save 30% to 50%, but because they measure up to your most criti cal standards. Because they are all uniformly en_ joyable. J. ROGERS 963 Lockwood Bldg.
