To Tobacco Growers, i
Discussing the question of the tax
ation of tobacco in the hands of jthe
growers which was presented to the
State Tax Commission by Vice Presi
dents James N. Kehoe and Bush ' W.
Allin of the Burley Tobacco Growers
Co-operative Association. Mr. Kehoe
said the growers were not asking any
favors or any special consideration,
but that they simply asked their con
stitutional right to exemption of farm
products from taxation for a year af
ter they are grown.
"We simply claim that, nnder the
constitution, farm products are ex
empt from taxation for one year from
the time they are grown," said Mr.
Kehoe. "The purpose of the framers
of the constitution in that exemption
was to encourage agricultural produc
tion and, consequently, reasonablv
low prices for food products.
"We learned at Frankfort that the
farmers of Kentucky have been pay
ing taxes on farm products assessed at
936,000,000, when as a matter of law
that property ought not to have been
assessed at all. The amount we ex
pect to save tbe farmers who are mem
bers of the Burley co-operative is a
tremendous sum, hundreds of thou
sands of dollars in the long run, (and
our contention is that none of this
tax should be paid by the growers."

Nature doth now appear
In dress more beautiful and gay
Than Winter's snow or flowers of May
October days are here.
With red and brown and gold,
The woodlands are all gayly clad;
Yet still, there comes a thought
The year is growing old.
The chilly winds fast brings
The varicolored leaves to earth
To warm its bosom, till the birth
Of flowers and plants in Spring.
Ripe ears from cornshocks nod;
The meadows still with grass are
On land-scape everywhere is seen
The charming goldenrod.
Rich nuts are falling down
From laden boughs. The Squirrels;
Aminst the prickly chestnut burs,
Where nuts are crisp and brown.
And-hlgh athwart the sky
In changing, yet in perfect form,
From regions cold to climes mora
The wild geese southward fly.
