Death or the King of MMokm.
Mr. Klaes, kuown by the name
of "King of the Smokers," died
recently near Kottcrdam, Holland.
Mr. Klaes Lad, according to the
Belgian papers, amassed a large
fortune in tlie linen trade, and one
pi nt ion of a mansion he had erected
near Rotterdam was devoted to tlie
arrangmeut of a collection of pipes
according to their nationality and
chronological order. By his will,
which he executed shortly before
his death, he directed that all the
smokers of the country should be
invited to his f'uneraj, and that each
0110 should be presented with ten
pnniids of -tobacco and two Dutch
liijies of the newest fashion, on
which should lie engraved the name,
arms, and date of the decease of
the testator. His relatives, friend
and funeral guests were strictly en
joined to keep their pipes well
lighted during the funeral proces
sion and cetemonv. and afterwards
empty the ashes from their pipes 011
the collin. The poor of the ncigh
borhood who attended to his wishes
were to receive annually, o-i the
anniversary of hisdeath, ten pounds
of tobacco and a small cask of good
beer, lie further directed that his
oak cfiirin should be lined with the
mlar of his old Havana cigar
boxes, and that a box of French
caporal and a pocket ot old Dutch
tobacco should bo placed at tlie foot
ot his coffin. His litvorito pipe was
to be placed by his side, with a box
ot matches, a flint and stcc', and
some tinder for,as he said,tbcro was
no knowing what might happen.
It has been calculated that the de
ceased gentleman during his eighty
years ot lite, smoked mora than
lour tons of tobacco, and drank
about 500,000 quarts of beer.
