The Cut-Out Plan.
In this county every effort is be
ing made to get the tobacco raisers
to join the association under a three
year pledge. With the biggest crop
on hand ever raised, probably, it is
no wonder that the growers are
walking the floor. They should have
"walked" some before they set out
their big acreage, They've caught
the white elephant, now what are
they to do with it? The cut-out
plan has never been seriously con
considered here, but it looks now as
if that plan will be the best next
year and in 1914. Nicholas county
is wrestling with the problem, as
will be seen from a dispatch from
the county seat of that county.
Cutting out the 1913 crop of to
bacco is being agitated in Nicholas
county, and a meeting of the grow
ers in this county has been called to
be held here Saturday, Oct. 12, for
the purpose of electing delegates
from this county to attend the cut
out meeting at Lexington Oct. 16.
As the question is just beginning to
be considered here it is impossible
yet to tell how the Nicholas county
growers will decide.
