tobacco crop as he thought he should
have made has decided on packing
his own crop and for that purpose he
has secured the old Christian church
building and a large force is now
busily engaged in preparing the crop
for its customary sweating and pack
ing
The crop grown by Mr Hearne on
his farm just south of the city is a
very fine one and Mr Hearne is de
termined to see that it is in prime
condition when it reaches the market
The gentleman says the tobacco
grown in this section has got to make
a market for itself and that he is de
termined to aid as much as possible
in accomplishing that end
Mr Hinson the government man
and his experts are giving all the aid
possible to Mr Hearne the Hearne
boys and their assistants who are
handling this crop
There is no question says Mr Hin
son of the superior quality o the
tobacco grown here and he says the
department is determined to do ail in
its power to impress this fact upon
the tobacco world The marketingjjf

Hearnes means and determination
has become interested in the crop
The Taussig Co packing plant in
the Wainright building on Avenue A
is also a very busy place The other
crops grown here as well as the Nac
ogdoches crops are being packed
here This commodious building has
been especially fitted up for this
work and it is fully capable of taking
care of the big crop grown Several
car loads of tobacco will be packed at
this place
