Three ways are used by farmers
for curing and preparing their to-
for the market; namely sun
cured, air cured and flue cured.
The old and cheap way is called air
cured; the later discovery and
proved way is called flue cured.
In flue curing the tobacco is taken
from the fields and racked in barns
especially built to retain heat and
there subjected to a continuous high
temperature, produced by the direct
heat of flame heated flues, which
brings out in the tobacco that
stimulating taste and aroma that-
expert roasting develops in green
coffee. These similar processes give
to both tobacco and coffee the cheer-
and stimulating quality that pop-
their use.
The of tobacco depends
much on the curing process and the
kind of soil that produces it, as ex-
pert tests prove that this flue cured
tobacco, grown in the famous Pied-
region, requires and takes less
sweetening than tobacco grown in
any section of the United States
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
juicy, full tobacco taste that satisfies
tobacco hunger. That's why chewers
prefer Schnapps, because Schnapps
cheers more than any other chewing
tobacco, and that's why chewers of
Schnapps pass the good thing along
one chewer makes other chewers,
until the fact is established that
there are more chewers and more
pounds of tobacco chewed to the
population in states where Schnapps
tobacco is sold than there are in
those states where Schnapps not
