WHAT THE CA1DIZ RECORD
The Tobacco Situation The Good
. to Come Clearly Proven During
the Last Few Years
The Hccord thinks there is a great
opportunity for the Tobacco
The good to come has boon
clearly proven during the past few
years. Of course, sonic mistakes
have boon made, and some who have
sever been its real friends bavo taken
advantage of this fact to break up
the Asiociation, hut tho tobacco
growers of the Black Patch needs no
further proof of the good it has done
tho producing masses of this territory.
There are differences to settle,
but this should be done along the
lice of the most good to tho greatest
number, and no man should permit
prejudice or narrowness to guide his
action in the matter. The destruction
of the Association at this time
mean" worse conditions than existed
when he Association was organized,
and we know the people want no
more Oi tint. So if troubles are to
be settled, let the in be settled fairly
for tire good of all. No bitterness or
spirit of animosity should be indulged
in when one fanner is dealing
with another farmer. This fight is
a common fight. What is good for
one is g"od for all, and pool sober
judgment should be exercised in the
settlement of wrongs that may exist.
Wo know the farmers of this ceunty
want to do right and what is best for
them and their neighbors, Like other
people, they may lose their heads
at times and say things that should
have been left unsaid, but in the end
all things will be righted, and what
is good for all is sure to prevail in
the end. We are sure our furruor
friends see this clearly as any one
else, and that the Association will be
placed on a truo busiucss basis, and
that great and lasting good will result
from it in the years to come.
"Whatever may happen, boys, by all
means stand by the organization that

impossible it is to silence jour grief
with words. The heart pleads for
utterance in tears and let it speak
thus; we bow in sorrow at the taking
of your little one. feeling that while
the ripenod fruit may be gathered.
It seems cruel that the bud should
bo taken before it has even opportunity
to unfold its blossom. But in
nature, fruits fall and so does blossoms
and buds. In the ways of
kind nature this perhaps best, and
in tho taking from our arms of this
little one wo will try to accept the
cross and bear it, believing that the
bud will yet blossom and beat fruit
in tho angel land whither the spirit
of tin's pure child has so early flown.

Tho recent acfon ot Tenncssto in

which it is expected may cooperato
with tho United States Geological
Survoy calls attention to a recent
report of the Federal Survey on the
underground waters of Tennessee
and Kcntuoky west of Tennessee
River and of an adjacent area in Il
linois, by L. C. Glenn, published as
Water. Supply Paper 104.
Tho Area onco a Sea
The surface formations of this
area were for the most part laid down
in a bay of the prcat prehistoric
sea that onco existed in the
Valley, when a huge arm of the
Gulf of Mexico extended well to the
north of the mouth of the Ohio and
whfen that stream and the Mississ
ippi were separate and distinct rivers.
InTcnnossee this embayment area
the; portion of the State between
M?sissippi and Tennessee rivers,
with tho exception of a narrow strip
alonjr the west bank of the Tennessee.?
In Kentucky it includes all
of tbo State west of Tcnncsso River,
with the exception of a narrow strip
alorjc the west bank. In Illinois it
includes a largo part of Massac,
and Alexander counties.
Ifi 1D0S the quantity of crude
as mined in the United
States was 34,(51."i short tons,
valued at $110,(1(52. a decrease in
quantity of 35.00(1 hort tons and in
value of S1S1.115 from that of 1J107
According to Ernes F. Burchard,
the author of a report on the production
of harvtes and strontium in
1908, published by the U. S. Geological
Survey in its "Mineral resources"
"eric, this curtailment of
production in HI0S was foreseen by
many persons interested in the
industry. There was a large
overpradudtion in 1907, the record
ycarg and after the panic the trade
in bjrytcs products oame practically
to a standstill
The total quantity of barytes reported
as refined by mills iTj Kentucky.
Missouri, North Carolina,
Tennessee, ond Virginia was 28.415
short tons, valued at $318,09(5. an
average price per ton at the mills of
$11,19, as compared with $14,59
per ton in 1907.
Reports from practically all the
districts producing barytes showed
a decidedly discoifracing condition
in 190S, especially as to mining.
Early Production of Coal.
Probably the earliest mention of
coal in the United States is contained
in the journal of Father
who as early as 1(579 reported
a "cole" mine on Illinois
River above Fort Grevccouer, near
the site of the present city of Ottawa.
It is also proable that, outside
of anthracite mining in Pennsylvania
and the operations of the Richmond
Basin in Virginia, Illinois
holds the record for priority of pro-
duction, Coal was produoco. in Jac-son
County in 1810 from a point on
Big Muddy River. A flatboat was
loaded with toal at this place and
shipped to New Orleans, but the
quantity is not stated. Again, it
was repo.tcd that in la32
boatloads were sent from tin same
vicinity to the mirket. Another
record is found staling thai
