The History of Safety Matches

More than three decades later, a renown Pennsylvanian lawyer by the name Joshua Pusey came up with the book matches just before the 19t century was over. He loved smoking cigar and this called for him to carry matches wherever he went. However, this did not seem to be a problem until he was invited to a party for dinner by the Mayor of Philadelphia one day. He clad to his best, but he could not help the fact that a huge wooden kitchen match box shamelessly showed out of his vest. This embarrassed him a lot and it is when that he thought, `why not have paper matches instead of wood?`
