Make Your Cigarettes YourttH with
Famous "Bull” Durham—It’s
the Latest and Greatest
That smart, snappy fad of “roll-
ing your own” cigarettes with
“Bull” Durham tobacco has cap-
tured the country.
Smokers everywhere and iq
every walk of life have taken it
up, and wherever you go you see
live, virile, sturdy men smoking
fresh-rolled “Bull” Durham ciga-
“Bull” Durham is the best to-
bacco in the world for cigarettes.
It is pure Virginia-Carolina leaf,
with a mellow-sweet flavor that
is distinctive and an aroma that
is unique. It makes a cigarette
which simply can’t be equalled for
Added to the wonderful smok-
ing quality of “Bull” Durham, you
also have the satisfaction of put-
ting your own personality into the
shaping of your cigarette. And
you know that it’s always fresh.
Get a 5c sack of “Bull” Durham
with free package of “papers”.
Try "rolling your own”. A little
practice will give you the knack.
Then you’ll know why this fad is
so widespread—so tremendously
popular with smart smokers.
