There were semi smokeless black powders that were made by combining black powder with a bulk smokless replacement powder.

It made the black powder burn FAR cleaner. There were a number of trade names for it, but probably the most famous was Lesmoke.

In the 1920s a writer for American Rifleman adopted that as his pen name, Les Smoke.
