in the dark tobacco situation in the
State during the past week and one I
ot interest tp every farmer IP the I
action taken by the tobacco growers
of Daviess county for the benefit of
themselves nod the growers of sur
rounding counties Tnis action was
taken at a meeting of 450 farmers of
Davies county at Owensboro Saturday
when it was decided that the much
proposed warehouse system would be
the firm foundation on which they
would handle their own tobacco pro
duct and endeavor to secure better
prices This plan will be put into
operation this morning when Ttirpin
JSs Wood backed by Louisville capital
lets will open their factory at Owens
horo make tho necessary advance of
4 l a hundred pounds on tobacco and
prepare tho weed for the market Tho
warehouses opened by Turpin IS Wood
will not be restricted to the n ° e of
members of the American Society ol
Equity nor to the tobacco growers of
bit viess county
The meeting was the largest and
most enthusiastic ever held in Da
viess county thirtythree local unions
of the A S of E being represented
Things were done in a business man
ner that should encourage all faruiers
and put their faith n the American
Society of Equity to the point whera
it cant fail to stick
