Henry Clay cigars

When Cunningham and his companions reach Kavanagh's bar in Wandering Rocks, they find the subsheriff in the doorway: "Long John Fanning made no way for them. He removed his large Henry Clay decisively and his large fierce eyes scowled intelligently over all their faces." Henry Clay was a brand of Cuban cigars that came in various sizes, with pompous names to glorify the big ones.
