The Great "Change".
Last week the JOURNAL promised to give full particulars of a great "change" in North Manchester and we now keep our word. Many people have wondered what it was and it will be of great interest to a certain class of citizens. The great "Change" is nothing more or less than the fine new cigar Ed Alber is putting on the market which every smoker who tries one will find a welcome change. Mr. Alber is a cigar maker of great experience and has made a careful study of the combination of tobacco and he guarantees the "Change" cigar to be the finest combination he can find. No pains have been spared to secure the very best grades of tobacco and he also guarantees the cigar to be absolutely hand made and free from any flavor or drug, its only flavor being that rich aroma which nature itself has given it. The "Change" is for sale by all dealers and a trial will convince the smoker of the truth of these statements. Try one the next time you want a smoke.
