"Dr. C. K. Marshall offered an invocation.", AVe regret the omission . very, very much, but, like the editor who wrote up the wedding elabo rately and left out the name of the groom, all that we can now do is to continue to regret it.

The crop in the county is not up to the average, although in some parts of the county where rains visited ? at the right time, the crop is fairly good. A few years ago when the small farmer grew tobacco, it was the practice to cut and scaffold tobac co in the patch. A few days sun would yellow jhe weed consider ably, then it was housed. ;T In conversation with some old time tobacco growers, it was the opinion given by them that where tobacco was housed in small barns the color was brighter than when housed in large barns. They as signed as a reason that the . air would freely circulate through the tobacco. The practice of scaffolding to- bacCO in the patch has about gone out of date among growers of the weed, but it is believed by many old and experienced growers that the extra trouble in scaffolding tobacco in the sun for a few days would more than compensate the growei;for the extra trouble.
