How Grant Came to Smoke.
At a recent army reunion, General
James Grunt Wilson told how it was
that General Grant became such an in
veterate 3moker. He said that after
the Fort Donnelson fight the newspa
pers all over the North were filled with
the story of how the silent Captain
hnd fought tint battle with an un
llghted cigar in his mouth.
"l-p to that time," said General Wil
son. "General Grant never smoked more
than two cigars a day in his life. When
the people of the north found that
their commander evidently liked cigars,
loyal souls from every great northern
city sent in cigars to Grant's head
quarters, until he had piled up in his
tent 20,000 cigars.
"He felt that it wouldn't be polite to
return them or to give them away, so
the only thing to do was to smoke them.
That was the beginning of It,and It end
ed with the smoking of something like
a bunch of cigars every day."
