Rev. C. K. Marshall gave an

Christ," and asked those who had
made a confession from twelve to
eighteen years of age to stand.

things of the day and full of help
ful suggestions.
The Boy Problem was discuss

Tobacco Cutting- in , Progress
Cutting and housing tobacco in
many parts of the county is in
progress. 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
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out of date among growers of the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.
