Every Man His Own Cigar Lighter 

Picture starts showing a coal man on his way to deliver a bag of coal, when along comes an English tourist, who asks him for a match, as he wants to enjoy a cigarette while seeing the sights of Paris. He has quite a hard time to make the man understand what he means. “No, match, now what will I do?” He searches his pockets through and through, and at last to his joy he finds a single match. Once, twice, thrice, he tries to strike it, with no success. He throws it away in disgust. Along comes another citizen; he also cannot oblige. “Well, I am in a fix!” He has an idea, he says; he’ll create a gentleman who is obliging.
There immediately steps from behind him an exact counterpart of himself; in fact, it is the same individual. He gives a light, to the joy of the first party, who invites the other to have a smile. He accepts, offers this arm, when they both merge into one person.
This film is full of animation, very comical and mystifying..
