And Pass Resolutions.
As previously announced in
the columns of this paper, the
independent tobacco growers

The following committee on
resolutions was appointed;
A. Huitt, Sam Riley, A. A.

Jas. Boone, J. R Custard,
and they introduced the following
resolutions which were
We, the Independent Tobacco
Growers of Crittenden and adjoining
counties, in convention
assembled at Marion, Ky.. on
the 30th day of Nov. 1912 for
the purpose of devising ways
and means to sell and dispose of
our present crop of tobacco at
the best price possible.
And whereas, the Tobacco
buyers have been requested to
buy no unpooled tobacco until
the pooled crop of tobacco had
all been sold, which request is
in our judgement unreasonable
and unjust, as no one has assurance
that the pooled tobacco will
be sold when prices are highest
but might be held till the price
falls, as has been done in the
And whereas, the unjust request
made by the leaders of the
pooled tobacco growers that the
independent tobacco buyers buy
no independent or unpooled to
bacco until the pooled tobacco is
all sold, seems to have discouraged
and intimidated the independent
tobacco buyers so they
have made no preparation to buy
or handle any tobaccc in this or
adjoining counties: and we further
believe that there will be
no danger of damage being done
to the person or property of any
independent buyer or independent
seller, from lawlessness as
in the past; but should such be
brought about by the unjust de
mands or otherwise, we believe
and hereby resolve that the leaders
of such lawlessness should
and will be held responsible.
It is further resolved that we
are freemen and are entitled to
all protection of the laws of Kentucky.
That we are entitled to
sell our own property as we may
like and to whom, as well as any
time we may desire.
We do not believe that any set
of men have the right to control
our property or personal affairs
so long as we are law abiding citizens.
We concede to every citizen the
right to pool his crop and deliver
the same to the pool unmolested.
And we are anxious to see
those who have pooled receive
the highest price possible for
Be it further resolved, that we
hereby call upon and request the
independent tobabco' buyers to

Uncle Josh Tickled at
Seeing His Name in Print.
How it tickled youi old Uncle
to see his "article" miss that
basket under the editor's desk !
Then to see how important your
uncle is when his name comes out
in the paper. Encouraged by
having such an honor "thrust
upon him" he allows his thoughts
to be put into print for the second
time. Those boys' corn
crops ought to make some of us
"gray heads and bnldheads"
ashamed. Think of raising more
than 50 bushels of corn on
ground that has not been raising
25 and 30. Your old Uncle never
believed much in "book
till now. He can't help it
now: for they have put ud the
goods. There's lots of us lettin'
the manure pile heat or be wasted
waitin' on the moon when we
ought to be busy hauling it and
putting it in the places where it
is needed. I hone the boys will
continue to show us what they
can do, and what we could do
too if we would study some and

the boys will hitch up old Tom
and Jo" and haul all of the ma-
nure they can find on the place,
taking it right to the field where
they want it next spring and
spread it on the ground row. If
you can't do it now, boys, see
that it does not get rained on
and allow the best part of it to
run down the hill and into the
branoh where it goes to fertilize
the river bottom farms. Keep
it dry. Boys, don't tell the old
folks but your old Uncle has his
heart set on getting a number of
our leading citizens to offer
some nice prizes for you next
year. Bedad, if no one else
does, your old Uncle will make it
interesting for you. Keep your
eyes skinned and bo sure to look
after all of the manure.

seed furnished by the state with
