Tobacco Exhibits at County Fair
Our Fair management is placing
greater emphasis this year on agri
cultural exhibits than heretofore and i
our farmers ought to assist in this
Particularly ought we to bring up a
nice i creditable show ot tobacco Year
before last this county took first and
second premiums at the State Fair for
both types of Red Tobacco Pryor and
One Sucker
The Bank of Hardlnsburg Trust
Company is this year offering at ou r
county fair an additional special pre
mium of 10 each for Pryor and Bur
ley of the 1010 crop The Fair is a
little early this year to get the tobacco
thoroughly cured but the curing cah
be very materially assisted by deaden
ing the plant a short time before it i
is cut This county this year ought
to make an exhibit that will not only
be a credit to it but beat any county
in the state and be of very material
value from a money consideration We
are a tobacco county and ought to show
the outside world what we can do
