JUDGE SEWELL BRANDS

 

in three sizes which are

 

The Judge Sewell Puritianas

(10 CENT)

 

The Judge Sewell Little Bouquet

5 Cent Straight, both of which are made from same stock of finest Clean Havana Fillers and imported Sumatra Wrapper and of expert workmanship, also

 

Judge Sewell Perfecto

5 Cents, or 6 for a quarter, blended with the finest Havana and Domestic fillers with imported Sumatra wrappers.

 

If You Smoke Just for the Fun of Seeing the Smoke this will mean nothing, but if you smoke for real enjoyment you will sat after smoking the JUDGE SEWELL Cigar that you had your money's worth and more too. The makers of this brand pledged themselves to the namesake of these brands that these cigars would be of the finest quality to be obtained for the money. They also make this same pledge to the smoking public, that the quality of this brand will maintain its present standard. The Judge Sewell Cigars can be found at all cigar stands and stores.
