SCARAMOUCH, THE FIRST FAMOUS ITALIAN COMEDIAN, BEING AT PARIS

AND IN GREAT WANT, BETHOUGHT HIMSELF OF CONSTANTLY PLYING NEAR

THE DOOR OF A NOTED PERFUMER IN THAT CITY, AND WHEN ANY ONE CAME

OUT WHO HAD BEEN BUYING SNUFF, NEVER FAILED TO DESIRE A TASTE OF

THEM; WHEN HE HAD BY THIS MEANS GOT TOGETHER A QUANTITY MADE

UP OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT SORTS, HE SOLD IT AGAIN AT A LOWER RATE TO THE SAME PERFUMER, WHO, FINDING OUT THE TRICK, CALLED IT 'TABAC DE MILLE FLEURS,' OR 'SNUFF OF A THOUSAND FLOWERS. BY THIS MEANS HE

GOT A VERY COMFORTABLE SUBSISTENCE, UNTIL MAKING TOO MUCH HASTE
