Classic stuff!

"In northern and more vigorous climes the short pipe is the favourite, for it does not interfere with work, but it is, we think, to be regretted that the pipe is giving way to a great extent to the victorious march of the cigarette. We can understand the man of fashion not caring to smoke a pipe abroad in the streets, and the cigarette, being as useless as himself, seems nothing more than a fitting companion for him, but the workman, the clerk, the merchant, the prince, each alike assist in the consumption of the countless millions of cigarettes that are daily used." pp. 31-32
