BROKE HIS ARM.
The Smiling Shepherd Meets With a Serious
Accident Base Ball News Wed
Tho many friends of Shepherd, who,
was one of Mayavillo's crack pitchers
this season, learn with sincere regret of
the accident he met with at Portsmouth
The Portsmouths were playing tho
Richmond (Va.) team, and in tho first
inning Shepherd broke his right arm
near the shoulder in delivering the ball.
It was at first thought that the tendon
of his arm had torn loose at the elbow,

Tho injury was a very painful one, and

That's What the I'aners Think of the Effort
to Curtail the Tobacco Crop Next
Ripley Bee : "An effort is being made
by the tobacco growers in tho Kentucky
district to have SO per cent, of tho grow
ers to agree to not raise any tobacco next
year. It is claimed that if the farmers
will agree to this tho present crop will
bring 12 to 15 cents per pound. This
looks like our farmers should take hold
of tho mattor and join in the move.
There isn't a farmer in Brown County
who realized enough on his last year's
crop to pay for tho work on it."
Fleming Gazette: "Mason County
farmers held another meeting in Mays
ville last week, their object being to cur
tail tho tobacco crop next year. Other
counties have been invited to join in tho
movement. It is a step in the right di
rection and all progressive farmers should
organize and endeavor to keep tho pro
duction during tho next few years down
to tho lowest possible notch. At the
present prices a farmer's outlay of cash,
in the majority of cases, exceeds tho in
come to bo derived."
Farmers should bear in mind that
another meeting will be held at tho court
house, this city, next Monday, to hear
reports from the committees appointed
at last meeting; and to take further action
in tho matter. All should bo on hand.
