Where women smoke cigars at balls


August 13, 1904
In Russia, says Mrs. George Cornwallis West in the “Cosmopolitan,” a lady who would indulge in 30 or 40 cigarettes a day will not smoke in a public place. On the other hand, in the most aristocratic Austrian circles ladies are frequently seen smoking cigars at balls and receptions.
