TOBAOOO CULTURE. iff OwtMpMiMl lawirti Isprl nw VkMi IHkt Pral Editor Pnn and Banner: A few nights ago 1 heard a converts Uon relative to the growth of tobaooc la tbla Stale, anggeeting thought which I think worUi making public. The conversation was between twi traveling meo, suggested by oneaskini the other bow wa? his trade. The re ply was that his trade was line in lb Eastern part of tbe State?in the to baeee section. He said that where to mi ?mvn MiuCMafullv in tbi State then was no auch thing w atria gt>ucy In the money market. He ale stated, and I have heard experta say that tobacco conld be suocessftill; grown In tbla section. That olimati conditions are IWvorabie, and In man; places the soil well adapted to tb growth of tobacco. If this Is true wh; can we not undertake the culture c tobacco on a limited acale? It Is no an uncommon thing in Florence, Dai lingtoa and Sumter for a man to clea tbouaanda of dollars on Ism land thai a man can work In cotton with on bom. Freeh sandy lands are bes adapted to the growth of tobacco, bu any sandy land with clay subsoil, wel fertilised, will prodnoe good tobacoo. I would advise experimenting on i limited soale at first, but I think ths the experiment should be made by ou people where they have land adapts n InhaMMA MlltnM I am Id formed that u mere of lan will produce 1,000 pounds of tobacoc and (bat at 10o. which la a low prta la worth $100, or more than the valu of three bales of cotton. If this Is tru the ooly point for us to determine it Is our land adapted to Its culture. One other difficulty, however, Is tba the culture will have to be general U fore we can establish a local market fc It. If our people will experiment gen erally we could secure an expert t visit the cooaty next fell and pat judgment on the grade of our tobacot I hope tbeoe suggestions will fin lodgment with eome of our good fsrn atem mud that tbev willeecure teed froi DarilogtoD or tome other tobaoc eouoty and have tobacco for the ma feat next Call.
