Mrs. Frances Y. Kline, of Florence. which
district demonstration agent, has is- freme
sued an invitation to the ladies to at
tend this convention also for the pos- taken
sible marketing information which
they may procure from the discussions.
"Production of tobacco particularly ?3U3
concerns us this year, "says Mr.
Young. "While North Carolina and
Virgina last year far exceeded the
production of the year before, we
have been liable to congratul.te our
selves on our good sense in reducing
by 18,000,000 pounds last year. But
most of our good sense has a matter
of the elements. The cold killed our
beds and the rain drowned our fields
-the first cutting us probably one

Our reduction was a matter more of

the coming season, judging by the
business outlook for tobacco in this
"Grading is a much debated and dis- 1
cussed point' in the tobacco industry,
just now. We have had much agita

Carolina. General opinion is that
legislation is the only way to bring
about this rule. We hope to have
such a meeting here Friday as will
be able to discuss intelligently this
very point, and take representative

bacco to bring it onto the warehouse
floors, there is a very decided differ

both sides, on this question. How
ever, we want it settled one way or
the other in the Friday convention.
Of course; marketing is the big
point with all of us-that's the ex
change which brings us our money
for the crop. Very likely two impor
tant propositions will be made to this
meeting lFriday. One of these will be
