The War Cry is of course the publication of the Salvation Army.  And according to this story it was sought to distribute it in saloons.
The first edition of The War Cry was printed on December 27, 1879 in London, England.[1] In 1880, US Salvation Army Commissioner George Scott Railton published the Salvation News, a small newsletter. He published the first US edition of The War Cry in January 1881 in St. Louis, Missouri. Between 1920 and 1970, each U.S. territory published its own individual version of The War Cry. In 1970, the Salvation Army’s US National Headquarters started publishing a nationwide version of The War Cry.[2]

Apparently it’s true!  Mary McDonald of Philadelphia was born in 1770 and died in 1906.  She smoked her entire life as well.  The Historical Society of Pennsylvania provides more details (as well as a photo of Mary) of this remarkable story.
