REASONS GIVEN BY CONDON FOR
NOT HUY1NG POOLED CHOP.
Guthrie, Ky., Aug. S In a letter
addressed to the Tobacco Planter
and published in that newspaper,
Martin J. Condon of New York,
picsident of the American Snuff
Company, denies that his company
has taken any steps toward attacking
the Planters' Protective Association
by refraining from buying tobacco
pooled with the organization.
The denial from Mr. Condon came
as the result of a statement appear,
ing recently in the Tobacco Planter
that officials of the association at
G.uthne were generally of the opinion
that the present slump in sales
of dark tobacco was duo to a
effort on the part of the buy-ors
to broak down the organization.
On this point Mr. Condon says
We arc buying now, and have always
bought tobacco absolutely independently
and with no connection,
understanding, co-operation or agreement
between us andany other buyer
of tobacco. The reduction in our purchases
at the prcsont timo is not part
cf any'plan to do anything embarrass
the dark tobacco planters' organization,
but it is simply and only duo
to tha fact that wc have already on
hand a larger surplus of tobacco suitable
for our needs than we usually
have, and as largo a surplus as our
business warrnats us in carrying.
This condition naturally diminishes
our purchase for the time being
aud our action in this respect has
been without any agrecmont, understanding,
co-operation or consultation
with any other buyer of tobacco

WILL FIX PRICE OF 1907 CROP.
Winchester, Ky., Aug. 11 Tho
Hurley Tobacco Society will hold an
important meeting here this
The pnnaipal subjects for
discussion will be that pertaining to
placing the crop of 1!)07 on the
market. It is being rapidly packed
and will soon be ready for market. It
is estimated the crop will amount of
7fi,000 bogheads, and is of a much
higher grade than that of the previous
year. Some members wish to
put a much higher price, claiming
that the law of supply and demand
justifies so doing.
On the other hand, it is asserted
that the Hurley Tobacco Society was
not organized to take advantage of a
situation to expect higher prices but
merely to secure for the grower a fair
price for his crop. It will probably
he graded along the lines of tnc previous
year, but of being better quality
will make tho average price
Another thing to be considered at
this meeting is whether or not those
who have raised a crop in lUOS over
the protests of the society shall be allowed
to pool their crop or not.
It is said that many of the growers
desire to enter the pool. It is
aKo probable that some steps will be
taken relative to the future courso of
the society The fall of the year is
nearly at hand when farmers make
contracts for the following year, and
it is dcsireablc to know what to do.
Other questions relative to tho financing
of the crop will also be discussed.

AND A WOMAN'S WORK
LYDIA. E. PINKHAM
Nature and a woman's work combined
bnve produced tho grandest
rwuidy for woman'n ills that tho
world has over known.
In the good old-fashioned days of
our grandmothers they relied upon
the roots and herbs of tho field to
cure diseaso aud mitigate suffering.
The Indians on our "Western
Plains to-day can produce roots and
herbs for every ailment, and cure
diseases that bailie tho most skilled
physicians who havo speut years in
tho study of drugs.
From the roots and herbs of tho
field Lydia E. Pinkham more than
thirty years ago gave to the women
of the world a remedy for their peculiar
ills, more potent and
than any combination of drugs.
Lydia E. Pinkbam's Vegetable
Compound is now recognized as the
standard remedy for woman's ills.
Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 515 X.O. St.,
Louisiana, Mo., writes:
" Complete restoration to health
means so much to tno that for tho sake
of other suffering women I am willing
to make my troubles public.
