NEW LOOSE LEAF
FLOOR OPENS 27TH
Cloverport Has One of the
Most Modern Warehouses
in State. Covers 18,000
Sqft. Floor Space.
On Thursday, November 27th,
Thanksgiving day, the doors of the
new Cloverport Loose Leaf Tobacco
warehouse will be thrown open for the
receiving of tobacco. The warehouse,
which is a brick structure covering
1H,0(I0 squarefeet of floor space, is one
of the most modern tobacco loose
leaf floors in the State of Kentucky,
and Cloverporters have every reason
to feel an exceptional pride in this
neyv business enterprise.
The building is ideally located. It
fronts Breckinridge Edition and ex
tends back to the L. H. & St. L. R.
R. tracks. It is estimated that it
took 100,000 brick to build the walls,
and to put down the concrete floors
and walks, it took two car loads of
cement and several barge loads of
sand and gravel.
It is a fire-proof building and has
all the modern lighting fixtures in
cluding skylights and electricty.
The north side, or the front of the
building, the two main offices are
located. The first room is to be used
as a waiting room. Directly back of
this is the office with equipments to
handle the clercial work with accuracy
and ease. There will be fifteen reg
ular employes, and additional help
during the rush season.
One of the conviences the farmers
will be pleased with is the chute, or
load way, which runs along side of the
Warehouse and has been so construct
ed that the top of the floor comes up
with the level of the wagon bed, and
as fast as the tobacco is unloaded it
is placed in crates on trucks and mov
ed to its location, saving time and
damage to the weed by careless hand
ling. The warehouse has a capacity
oi 190,000 lbs., of tobacco.
Mr. J. W. Boyle, tbe manager, has
wide experience in the tobacco busi
ness, and he predicts this a popular
selling place for the grovers from
Breckinridge and Hancock counties.
There will be buyers here too from
