One of the puzzljng factors In the

the apathy of the Italian regie Or
dinarily Italy takes from 16KHQO
to 20ODVQ > 0 pounds of the 70
OOOOOO or 75OOtM00 t pounds In
the total crop and 1f the Italian
regie holds out If probably will af
fect the market coT the poorer grades

in unusual number of independent
bucJ have beef eilvely gathering

Out the farmers have not begun
o distinguish between best and
iccond best They are holding out
for the top notch price and It will
ako two or three weeks probably
to get the market on n basis where
a cen to a cent and a half a pound
difference between a food and an
tverage crop will prevail
The farmers of the western dis
trict have taken down their tobacco
and It Is lying In bulk on the stem
while they are offering a premium
or stripping hands to help them
prepare their tobacco for delivery
The tobacco will hold moisture in
Sulk several weeks a iM l enable them
to deliver tobacco until the middle
it February even though the
weather In the meantime may bo un
favorable Buyers prefer to have
tobacco stripped In ths way Instead
of being taken down Irregularly and
tripped as It is taken down ns It
lilturea an evenness of character not
otherwise possible
