Over 600,000 Pounds
Sold Here During
Quality Fait and High Prices are
During the past week the two
local warehouses have been selling
capacity floors at every sale. The
quality of tobacco has not been the
best but the prices obtained have
been very satisfactory, over 600,
000 pounds changing hands nt
prices ranging from 4 to 45 cents
per pound. The streets have been
literally lined with canvas covered
wagons and a number of traveling
men have been heard to remark,
"Mt. Sterling will soon rival Lex
ington as a tobacco market." In
fact, as far as price is concerned,
we are as good a market as can be
found in the State and in a few
years we are sure to have one of
the largest tobacco markets in the
Commonwealth, as tho farmers
living adjacent to Mt. Sterling
have already seen the folly of
hauling their tobacco to Lexington
where no better prices are obtained
than right here at home.

McDonald un Steer Feeding.
Mr. C. C. McDonald, of this
city, addressed the Kentucky Beef
Cattle Breeders' Association in
Lexington last week on the sub
ject "Steer Feeding" and said in
There are certainly two kinds of
steers not to feed. They are the
kind that cannot be acclimated
and the very wild kind. He said
that tho best cattle to feed in this
State are those that come from
Eastern Kentucky, where more
than 10,000 have recently been ex
ported. The speaker concluded
iiis remarks by registering a com
plaint against the breeder who
will not give his cattle the proper

them miserably and who wastes
the feed ho has.
