ilSKS FARMERS TO RE PATIENT
There Is at present a great deal of
comment on the tobacco situation
In this district, as to the outcome of
the sale. In a statement some of
the trade made to a reporter, was
the hoard hal a line of samples
which was Impossible for the farm
ers who have" seen them, state they
line of samples about the same as
we have had for the past five years.
The tobacco is gathered from all
iarte of the district and mixed to
gether. Then the samples are se
lected from the whole bunch.
The same parties who have made
the samples for several years past
made these, and the board of con
trol, as well as a number of farm
ers who have seen them state they
are well satisfied they represent
this year's crop, and If the board Is
satisfied, we aro sure no serlou8 ob
jection will be' heard from the buy
fTg from the fact they aro too good.
There seems to be an opinion
among some people we are asking
more for this crop than wo sold for
last year, or in other words, wanted
:is much for an Inferior crop a's we
got for a good one. We have a Hue
of samples made, priced from $10
to ?G for leaf and lugs and $3 for
aJl trash, and we only ask that the
-tobacco representing each value
be graded accordingly. We are sure
of the fact, on the line of samples
re have, with prices the same as
last year, will not make Uie general
.average that was made last year by
at least fifty cents per cwt. Our es
timate on the crop according to
samples and prices named is about
?7.25 per cwt., and for less than
that we will be producing for less
than the cost of production, and as
a business proposition, when this is
the case, the most sensible thing
to do, Is to raise less tobacco, or
none at all, but our one aim should
be less tobacco and a better qual
ity. We horewlth submit an estimate
on tho expense of raising tobacco
per acre at the price of $1.50 per
lay for labor, which, Is about an
average price paid:
nurning and sowing beds, one
day . . $ 1.50

Favor Cutting Out Crop.
Hnwesvlllo, Ky., Nov. 15. The
price of tobacco continues to agi
tato the farmers of th0 county to
an unusual degree. The topic was
discussed in the county association
her0 and tho decision arrived at
was to hold tho present crop and to
cut out the 1913 crop rather than
sell at a reduction from last year's

Central City, Ky., Nov. 16.
Representatives of seven tobacco
pools of tho American Society of
Equity met In convention here to
day, elected temporary officers to
hold office till the time of meeting
of the State Convention of the Ken
tucky State Fnlon, which will con
vene at Calhoun, December 11, at
which time permanent officers will
be elected and this organization of
the several pooling districts will be
known and operated under the
name of Tobacco Department of the
union and . will bo able to more
fully carry out the co-opera-tive
Idea among tobacco grow
ers. The onventlon also un
animously adopted a resolu
tion providing that if tho 1912 crop
of tobacco now in the hands of the
growers is not sold by December
15, steps will t'e taken to circulate
pledges in all of the seven pooling
districts to cut out the 1913 crop
and raise no tobacco in that year.
This resolution was thought nec
essary In view of the fact that If a
surplus of tobacco now existed,
such action would have a tendency
to bring production and consump
tion closer together.
