Etymologies

From fume. (Wiktionary)

Examples

  • Rustic females who habitually chew even pitch or spruce-gum are rendered thereby so repulsive that the fancy refuses to pursue the horror farther and imagine it tobacco; and all the charms of the veil and the fan can scarcely reconcile the most fumacious American to the _cigarrito_ of the Spanish fair.
