Smoker Described

Get a tube of tin about five-eighths of an inch diameter, five or six

inches in length; make stoppers of wood to fit both ends, two and a

half or three inches long; with your nail-gimlet make a hole through

them lengthwise: when put together it should be about ten inches. The

ends may be tapered. On one end leave a notch, that it may be held with

the teeth, which is the most convenient way, as you will often want to

use both hands: it is also always ready, without any trouble to blow

through, and also to keep the tobacco burning. When ready to operate,

fill the tube with tobacco, ignite it, and put in the stoppers; by

blowing through it you keep the tobacco burning while the smoke issues

at the other end.
