Plot Summary

  • A smoker falls asleep, and two mischievious fairies play with his pipe. He discovers this, and imprisons them in a cigar box. He removes a flower from the box, which contains a fairy smoking a cigarette. Next, he leaves briefly while his smoking paraphenalia clears itself from the table and the flower reassembles itself into a cigar. He lights the cigar, then breaks a bottle containing the fairy, who interacts with him in various ways reeling from his cigar smoke, building a bonfire that he extinguishes, etc.

  • A novelty portraying the mysterious experience of a gentleman with princess Nicotine and her fairy companion. The gentleman is found seated at a table, upon which are scattered pipes, tobacco, cigarettes and matches. After a short smoke he leans back, yawns and goes to sleep. Presently the lid of the tobacco box opens and the Princess steps out, followed by the smaller fairy. The latter climbs into the pipe, pulls the tobacco over her, while Princess Nicotine returns to the box. The man awakens, grabs his pipe, tries to light it, but it will not draw. He takes a magnifying glass, looks through it into the pipe: the little fairy peeps up and out of the blue smoke rising all about her, laughs, while the astonished man drops the glass, dumps the tobacco on the table and again examines it through the glass. The little fairy gets up at once and kicks about, throws him a kiss, jumps into the tobacco box, jumps out a moment later. Bringing Princess Nicotine with her. Both fairies jump into the box again, close the lid, leaving an arm projecting. The man grabs the member to find, instead of the arm, a large rose. He looks at it a moment, smells of it, and is surprised as smoke puffs out from the center. Bringing his glass, he finds the fairy almost hidden in the leaves, calmly smoking a cigarette and blowing the smoke at him. Thoroughly scared, the man hurries from the room, while the leaves detach themselves from the rose, whirl about for a while, then roll themselves into a cigar. The man returns at this time, lights the cigar and is again mystified as the smoke pours into the neck of a large bottle standing on the table. Looking through the glass, he finds the fairy inside the bottle, mocking him. He breaks the bottle and the fairy is observed standing on a box. She hands him a cigarette, which he lights, then blows the smoke at her. She retaliates by lighting the entire box of matches, then quickly disappears, while the man busies himself in extinguishing the fire.
