I'm currently reading a book called 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford' by Ron Hanley and found this brief reference to snuff which I thought some members (particularly those from 'across the pond') might find interesting:
The reference is found on page 235, by this point in the book Jesse has been killed and his body is being moved to the location of the funeral...
"A special Hannibal train was scheduled to meet them at Cameron Junction but the crowds made them tarry so long in St.Joseph that they missed their connection and were forced to stay over in the town until a rock island train could be sent. Sheriff Timberlake and Marshall Craig vied over who would nightwatch the remains, for each mistrusted the other as a man capable of selling the corpse. An argument followed and Enos Craig reached for his gun, but realised the childishness of the fight when a station agent yelled from across the room, "Gentlemen, gentlemen! Don't pull your pops in here!" Craig returned his revolver to its holster and then sourly walked the railroad tracks, snuffing Maccaboy tobacco"
Do Maccaboy still make snuff? Wasn't that old old snuff bottle a member bought on ebay recently the same brand?
