The high prices and ready rate tho
farmers had Cpr tholr 100C crop of
lobarco and n good prospect for tho
continuance of tboio conditions ex
sting at the time for planting the
present crop coupled with n lato wet
spring caused many farmers to nl
most abandon their corn crop and
devote all their tlmo and energy In
raising a largo tobacco crop They
were fortunate In having an abund
ance of plants while the weather con
dittoes yero all that could bo do
aired at transplanting time and as a
ronstqucnca the face of the earth Is I
planted In tobacco as a tobacco
broker expressed It this morning
after having received reports front

In the eastern or Clarksvllle district
tt Increase Is even greater
In evory luktahco It Is I reported that
the condition of the crop Is far above
tho average and prospects never so
good for a fine quality of tobacco

tho effect of causing tho buyers to
purchase but small quantities of the

and much Interest has been aroused
