The past few years have added largely to the number of cigarette smokers, and the many brands placed before the buyer have added a variety to the taste of the lovers of a short smoke, but of late two popular kinds have made their appearance, which have taken the smoker by storm. We refer to "Our Little Beauties" and "Opera Puffs," made by Messrs. Allen & Ginter, Richmond, Va. They are manufactured in the best style of the art, and both are a most excellent article. "Opera Puffs" are already well advertised, and are having a large sale. "Our Little Beauties" are a pressed cigarettee, and are fast becoming popular. They last longer and smoke cooler than round made goods, and there is no taste of paper in the mouth. They can be found in stores selling smokers' goods.
