THE EGYPTIAN CIOAHETTB. The name Egyptian cigarette is, strictly speak- ing, a misnomer, for no tobacco is grown in the Nile country. In fact, cultivation of the plant has been forbidden by Khedivial decree since 1890. Cigarettes made in Egypt" would be the exact •description, says Mr. F. C. Penfield in "Present Day Egypt." Practically all the tobacco used in making these misnamed cigarettes comes from Turkey, where it is obtamed chiefly from Cavallo, Latakia, and Yenidjc. The comes from Austria and Italy, and the major part of the labour employed is Greek, except for common cigarettes, which are made by native workmen. The tobacco used is not adulterated in any way, but it is skil- fully blended to acquire the desired strength and flavour. The best leaves are used for export orders, the common grades being consumed in Egypt, where nearly every man, woman, and child is a constant smoker of cigarettes.
