The landlord having just Laid upon the floor of i Reading room a new Oil cloth carpet Hud provided several handsome Spittoon for the accommodation of the lovers of Iho Weed. The room being filled with persons on the evening referred to and among them was quite a number of tobacco chewers who is �3 generally the Case were squirting at random Over the carpet with but one honorable exception who invariably used the Box.
