some of the third crop, which was as bright
in co or as the original plant, was taken to
uiai Bb, auu it soia ior rour or nve times as
mueb as the common tobacco. Capt Cott
namid it "White Eurley."
Tha farmers in Mason county, Ky., experi
mented more eagerly with the new tobacco
than did their neighbors in Brown county,
acrots the river. They soon produced it in
considerable quantities. Most all of it was
shipd to the Louisville market, and White
Burioy became famous. For years its growth
was i-onfined to these two counties. Farmers
thought it was peculiar to the soil there, and
coukt not he produced elsewhere. Thus the
quantity in the market did not amount to
more than the hundredth part of 1 per cent
of the total crop, and it was regarded ana
rare and fancy brand, such as a rich man
only could afford to smoke or chew.
Several years ago farmers in various parts
of Koutucky decided to get some of the White
Burlcy seed and try it To their great sur
prise and pleasure they grew tobacco just as
good as that produced in Masou county. The
following season a greater quantity was

near wnat ne says:
1 have been a practical druggist In
1 yler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
ana notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
em meuicine8 on the market, and as
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago. I was in
duced ty a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo
lame Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on nis pan. l nnaiiy made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
anu most powerful blood remedy known
to man. 1 have been subject to in
nammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
iour. ine last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the niuhts in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. 1 he week previous to
using B. B. B up to that time I had onlv
eaten six mehls, and could Acarlely sit up
wunoui support; out after using three
bottles I was able to relish mj meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank hpaven, I was en
nreiy cureo, and not the slightest pain
felt sin :e that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in -what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
a. B.,curedmein mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I tike it on myself as i
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
