Between the Buyers and
Sellers of Tobacco.
MAKES THE JITMON ACUTE
Buyers Claim the Weed- is
Inferior Sellers Say It
is All Right.
EX I "HUT'S Amil'K TO KAUMKUS
When will the tobacco crop of
1012 be sold? When will the farm
ers of this section of tile country
realize on their year's work? What
i3 th0 crop of tobacco worth? Will
it bring what It Is worth? These
are questions that the farmers, the
buyers, the merchants, th0 bank
ers and everybody are wanting an
swered and the answers, right or
wrong, are numerous.
The farmers say that the toln
ta, hcvintf ii bPtler cotor thlj jear
though lighter In body, Is worth as
much as it was last yar and one of
the organizations has fixed prices of
from $10 down to ?C for the leaf
and lugs and S3 for all trash. They
say that they are unable to sell the
crop for less money and realize a
living out of it.
The buyers have viewed the sam
ples that have been made up by the
associations and state that the to
bacco is not worth the prices that
tlie farmers havo placed on It. They
say that the weed this year Is flim
sy, light and will not weigh out to
their satisfaction. According to the
buyers and the farmers at least
partially admit It the seasons havo
been unfavorable for the produc
tion of a good crop of tobacco, and
the great pools, containing thous
ands of pounds of tobacco, lack In
weight, body and quality, so that
the buyers are not eager to tako
hold of it.
A number of buyers have taken a
look at the samples that have been
made up and all of them state that
the farmers are seeking to sell for
more than their product Is worth.
The farmers state that the cost of
production is so great, with the in
creased cost of labor, tax-increases,
high cost of living and high cost of
everything that enters Into the pro
duction of any staple, that they aro
unable to sell their tobacco at a
lower figure than they have named
and yet receive anything like an
adequate return on their time and
Thomas Gallaher, one of the most
experienced buyers that enters tho
local market, stated last night that
he had seen but little of the tobac
co, but that from what ho had seen
and what he had heard, he felt that
it would be impossible for the asso
ciations to deliver tobacco up to the
samples that they had selected and

When a Hartford citizen comes
to the front, telling his friends and
neighbors of his experience, you can

Mr. Oallaher stated that tho best
advice he could glvo tho farmers
would be to hang their tobacco in
their barns, leaving teh leaves on
the stalks, allowing It to come and
go and giving it time to gain weight
by taking the substance from tho
stalk nnd to then make new 8am

Ho said that In his opinion that

growers could possibly do, as it
would add weight and body to the
tobacco and would enhance its
The growers state that If the buy
ers do not come up to the prices
they have placed on their tobacco,
they will hold the crop and under
no circumstances will they sell It at
a lower figure than they have
placed on the samples that they
have already made. Owensboro

Joining departments had been re
quisitioned to the number of 1,000.
They were then divided Into five
sections of 200 carts each. The
drivers, with their whips, astra
khan of ordinary sheep-wool caps,
long sheep-skin or goat-hair coats,
look picturesquo beside their two
small Greek oxen or African buffa
loes. Every day 200 carts are laden
and they start away at a slow pace,
the driver walking before his team,
humming an air or smoking a C'B
arette. He thus trudges up and
down the mountain roads for a dis
tance of fifteen kilometers, or nine
and a half miles, which Is one day's
march. Then he lights a fire for
himself at tho roadside, has a warm
meal, feeds his oxen or buffaloes,
and lios down to sleep on straw
near the cart or In a barn, If a
farmhouse I3 near.
Next day he covers another nine
or ten miles. Here his load is ta
ken into horse-drawn carts, which
carry it more rapidly to the nearest
fighting troops, perhaps twenty
mlle8 away. The teamster then re
turns, taking two days, as he had

Only bread was thus transported
from Kostendlll. It was In good,
round, appetizing loaves weighing'
two pounds, of half-wheat half-rye
bread, which remains soft and pal
atable for fifteen days. I had par
taken of it myself, as no other was
available. The entire population
lives on this bread now. No one
thinks of baking any other during
time of war.
Life in these places is now en
tirely abosrbed by the war. Two
thirds of the shops aro shut and the
owner8 are carrying rifles and wear
ing uniforms. All bakeries havo
been requisitioned for the army and
are baking army bread day and
night. Women and chlldron are

wear neat uniforms and help where
they can. The students aro clerks

A CHANGE IN BURIAL
CUSTOMS IS COMING
Abolition of Burial in Cemeter
ies is Predicted by
A change In the manner of bury
ing the dead, which will mean ulti
mately the abolition of city ceme
teries, is predicted by Mr. Freeman,
the manager of Rosehill Coraetery,
Chicago. It will come within the
next ten years, ho predicts. It is
brought about by the Increasing de
mand of cities for more space for
the living and the Increasing cost
of real estate. Tho remedy is to be
mausoleums. The first public mau
soleum will be erected at Rosehill.
Another Is In contemplation In New
York, and still other cltle8 have
considered them. Thousands of
dead can b0 placed In one of theso
mausoleums In the same space that
would bo required for the burial of
100 bodies In graves. t
Another important consideration
advanced is tho unsanitary risk in
graves. Contagious diseases, Mr.
Freeman says, have been traced to
cemeteries. With bodies sealed In
stone and concrete, this danger is
eliminated. Tho air In a mauso
leum is drawn out through pipes
and a gas Introduced in its place.
This absorbs the moisture of the
body, which finally becomes dust.
Thus the end 18 the same as that
reached by cremation, which Mr.
Freeman says, Is tho Ideal way, but
Is not largely practical because the
sentiment of the living forbids In a
majority of cases. The mausoleum
to be built at Rosehill will not re
duce tho cost of burials, because of
the elaborate construction of tho
building, but such structures could
be built of concrete and steel to an
swer every purpose and reduce the
burial cost one half. Tho mauso
leums are to have chapels. Their
us0 will do away with funeral pro
cessions and the employment of
carriages. Cemeteries, within tho
next fifty years, it ls predicted, will
be turned Into parka, the present
graves, will bo wiped out and the
future resting place of the dead will
be In mausoleums alone. Indian
