L this issue of the Record
Press we publish the card of Mr.
Percy Brasher of the Dycusburg
district, who aspires to the position
of his parties nomination
for assessor, in the August primary.
Mr. Brasher comes to us recommended
to be a consistent Democrat
and every way worthy and
capable of filling the position.
He came of a family of Democrats
who never falter and from
a section of the county that has
had but little, if anv. representation
on a county ticket for
year?. We speak of the old
district of Dycusburg, that
always rolls up a Democratic
majority, when others may fail.
We feel that Mr. Brasher will
give a good account of himself
in the primary and if nominated
we are informed that the Dycus-burg
precinct will roll up an excellent
majority for him.

stemming type of tobacco could
easily have gotten eight cents
average, had only the Associations
co-operated in good faith.
Many of the deepest thinkers on
the subject of farmers cooperation
declare that it is absolutely
essential that all the growers
of the stemming type of tobacco
of the one sucker type of tobacco
and of the Clarksville type of
tobacco, in other words all the
growers of the dark, fired type
of tobacco, should be in one association.
I quite agree that
that would be by far the best
method of fighting the Trust,
and yet it is perfectly manifest
that if only the several associations
selling this type of tobacco
would, through their sales committees,
the same good results could be
Were the Stemming District
Tobacco Association to go out of
accomplised a grand and
mission. Co-operating through
this Association for seven
long years, farmers have educat
ed themselves, and have proven
to themselves conclusively that
it is perfectly feasible for farmers
to co-operate, and the farmers
of this section of Kentucky know
absolutely know that thev are
the gainers, that they have pro-fitted
by millions of dollars by
reason of the Stemming District
Tobacco Association, not only so,
but farmers who have never
been members of this Association,
who have never co-operated
through any other Association,
know too that they are the gainers,
have also profitted by millions
of dollars. So I comfort
myself by reflecting that were
anything disastrous to happen
to this Association under the pre
sent stress and strain, it has
been one of the grandest successes
in experimental, voluntary
business association of farmers.
Let all good members remember
that this is an era of progress.
Woodrow Wilson and a
progressive Administration will
hold sway after March 4th.
Woodrow Wilson will surround
himself with a progressive cabinet.
Congress, as at present
constituted, is progressive by a
large majority. What this administration
will do for the
plundering trusts and combines
will be" of ample sufficiency.
Remember Mr. Elliott's advice
to take your timeJor deliveries,
j for as he declared, the Association
and purchasers will be receiv

August this year.
