Mr. Charles Baquol died Friday at his home, 1612 West Lexinton street. He was 53 years old and a native of New York, but came to Baltimore when he was 13 years old. Mr. Baquol's father, Jules Baquol, a confectioner like himself, was the first to offer "broken" candy for sale, and an interesting story is told in connection with this. Having shipped a large consignment of stick candy to an out of town dealer, and the candy being returned, Mr. Baquol was threatened with bankruptcy. In his dilemma, however, an idea occured to him and he had the stick candy broken up, and than inserted a card in THE SUN advertising "broken" candy for sale. It was rapidly disposed of, "broken" candy become the fad of the day and Mr. Baquol was kept busy manufacturing it. He was the first confectioner to advertise in THE SUN. Upon the death of Mr. Jules Baquol, his son, Charles, took charge of the businss and conduted it until his death. Since 1877 his place of business has been at 128 West Pratt street. He was a member of the Manufacturing Confectioners' Association of Baltimore, Baltimore Conclave, Improved Order of Heptasophs, and the Woodmen of the World.
