Fayette Warehouse Announcement
In order to better take care of its customers the Fayette Tobacco Warehouse Company, of Lexington, has
purchased the warehouse at No. 655 Broadway, known as the Broadway Tobacco Warehouse. Contracts
have been let to enlarge the lights and improve the facilities that they may meet the requirements of the
We have enagaged as sales manager of this property which will be known as the Fayette Tobacco
Warehouse Company No. 2, Mr. J. D. Noel, one of the best judges of tobacco in Kentucky and widely and
favorably known to the entire tobacco trade of the State.
The Fayette Tobacco Warehouse Company has endeavored since its organization, nine years ago, to fur
nish the tobacco planters of Kentucky as reliable and high class service as could be had. Our constantly in
creasing trade has borne testimony to the success of our efforts.
For this coming season with the same employes and under the same management we shall be better pre
pared to take care of our customers without delay.
AH the reports we have received from the Southern and Easter markets indicate the highest burley mar
ket we have ever known.
Mr. Early Bass, our Auctioneer, who is now selling at Greenville, N. C, reports tobacco selling at from
five to seven cents a pound higher that last season. This proportionate increase will give us a very high
average here. '
Because of the splendid patronage we have enjoyed in the past and because we desire to do "our bit," we
shall divide one half the commission received from tobacco sold on our opening sale about December 1st,
between the Soldiers' Tobacco Fund and the Local Chapter of the Red Cross.

WHO KNOWS THESE DATES?
In renewing for his paper for an
other year, this paper's good friend,
J. E. Taylor, of Brookfield, Mo., wrote
as follows: "I would feel lost without
the Climax as there is so much news
in it that brings my memory back to
boyhood days of the seventies. If you
can give space, I would appreciate
the exact year and month that thp
old Kentucky Central Railroad was
graded from Ford to Richmond and
when the steel was laid to Richmond."
We would be glad if any of our read
ers who have this information, would
furnish it for publication.

HAZARD NEEDS A P. M.
The reason that a civil service ex
amination at Hazard will be held here
November 14, is that Rebel Martin
appointed by the government arrives

clined to claim exemntion. Sinrp his
departure for Camp Taylor, three men
have held the postmastership, none of
whom cared to accept the place per
manently. As a consequence, Hazard
with a total of approximately 10,000
mail patrons, faces the prospect of a
closed postoffice unless an inspector
appoitned by the government arrives
to take up the work.
