		  Pipes Digest #104 - June 18, 1993

Welcome to new members:

	Brian Major		(?????????????????)
	Brian McCorkle		(???????????????????)

And thanks to all who sent in congratulations! I'm now working at
Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton (well, Plainsboro... :), and
time has been at a premium of late. But, hopefully, we'll get to the
Pipes newsletter a little more often in the future! And now, without
further ado...

Congradulations!!!!!!!!  Is that: Con Graduation?!  Ahhh, Latin...

But in any case, I think it's a good excuse to go out and get a little clay. 
After all, now you're up there with the likes of Dr. Henry Jones Sr.&	
Sorry about that...Phone rang. =)

Umm....oh...yeah...Indy's father, and other greats, in fiction and in reality
who partake of the pipe.

Hello Steve:
Reading you loud & clear.  I got your re-posting & the thought-
provoking history of pipe-smoking in Russia has already been passed around
the office.  Many thanks, and congratulations on your three letter suffix.

[ Thanks! Perhaps Bill could expand on a piece on England that comes
later... -S. ]

Hello Steve,

[ some change-of-address discussion deleted ]

All the best,


P.S. What do you think about the idea to try to make some text which can be 
incorporate in the 'Cigar Aficianado' magazine? Perhaps that could further 
broaden our community.

Cavendish:              A variety of pipe tobacco that is reputed to produce
                        remarkably clear thought processes, and thereby leads
                        to major scientific discoveries; hence, the name of a 
                        British research laboratory where the tobacco is 
                        smoked in abundance.

smoky hallways... -S. ]

  Thanks for putting me back on the list after I fell off!
  Here are addresses for the Boston tobacconists as requested some issues back:

         Leavitt & Pierce     established 1883
         1316 Massachusetts Avenue
         Cambridge, Mass 02138
             Prices as of 6/4/93: Balkan Sobranie pipe tobacco, pouch, $4.20
                                  Turkish Special cigarettes, regular, $3.00

         David P. Ehrlich Co.   Tobacconist since 1868
         32 Tremont Street
         Boston, Mass  02108

      The packages of Turkish Special now are imported by Andros, not
G. Georgopolous (48 Stone St, NYC).  According to a salesman at Nat Sherman
one or both elder Georgopolous brothers died, and the business is no longer.
Georgopolous used to make the cigarettes for Sherman in its factory, an old
building in the shadow of Manufacturers Hanover Plaza in the financial
district of lower Manhattan.

         I was looking for a blend my late grandfather-in-law used to smoke
(trying to generate remembrances of things past for my new wife), and the
Perkins Tobacco Co. is still around southwest of Boston, but I don't have
their number handy.  He used to smoke a numbered blend, but now my wife
found a familiar red and green box called "Half and Half" at a drug store.
Too bland for me.


   I'd highly recommend against brewing "teabacco".  Although tobacco juice
is a fine emetic, if you ever kept it down you might be in trouble.  I've
heard that the amount of nicotine in one pack of cigarettes is the well over
the fatal does for ingestion.  I don't know how much nicotine is exhaled
(ie remains in the "second-hand smoke"), but being a small alkaloid once it
gets in the gut it's all going to go into the bloodstream.
   There've been quite a few reports of people who continued smoking while
using a nicotine patch, and having heart attacks.  If we presume they didn't
start smoking more, and that the patch is somewhat decreased, that means
they only had twice their normal amount of nicotine.
   As for pesticides, I don't have any hard information, but most alkaloids
(nicotine, caffeine, cocaine) are natural insecticides produced by the plant.
I imagine that except for the colorfully-described tobacco worm, tobacco
doesn't have many insect enemies, and may not need much external pesticide.
Viruses and fungi may be another matter.  (I could go off-topic and ask
what it is that makes pest-resistant tomatoes [for organic farming] so
pest-resistant, and whether you'd prefer to have tested artificial chemicals
on the outside, or natural poisons throughout the fruit.)o

[ Thanks for the info, David; I'd recommend against "teabacco" too.

                I am attending the American Library Asasociation

	anyone has any information or suggestions about pipe or
	tobacco shops in the city.  Thanks.
