CLOVERPORT, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1912.
POOLED TOBACCO THOS. LEWIS DEAD.
Of Green River District May Not
Be Sold Before January 1.
Difference in Prices Fixed--What
Buyers Will Offer.
There is a strong probability now that
'the sale of the tobacco pooled with the
Green River Tobacco Growers Associa
tion and the American Society of Equity
Home Warehouse Company will
.at be made before the latter part of
December and possibly not until after
'.the first of the year.
The samples tor the 1912 crop have
been on exhibition at the headquarters
-othe various associations for several
days, and have been inspected by rep-
resentativea of the American Tobacco
, rvimnanv (lAllncrher. Imoerial. lohn
; Xoss and Continental, and representa
tives of other concerns. None of the
teuvers have offered to purchase any of
the tobacco yet! and it is not likely that
the associations will close any deal at
any time real soon, as it is understood
that there is some difference in the
nrice that will be offered by the buyers
licompared with the price paid last year.

from the samples shown of this year's
crop, me Duyers are nut wuuug iu y
f that price, and likely not over 6 to 3.
$ It is admitted by the buyers and some
members of the association that the to-
-' bacco is not as good as last year's crop,
because it has neither the weight, color
nor length, and for that reason the buy
ers claim that they should not be ex
pected to pay the same price as last

u American Warehouse Company, whicn
Is tho dght to be the same as that of last

that he would have something to give

The rain a few days ago brought out
a snort stripping season, and some of
the tobacco was stripped and is ready
' for market, when the tobacco is again
put in season. This, however, cannot
be rushed to the market until the to
bacco is sold, and just when the sale
will be made is a question now that
probably will not be decided for some
time. Owensboro Inquirer.

MISS HANNAH BEARD
Friday a message was received by
Mr and Mrs Taylor Berud.of Har
dinsburg. from their daughter, Miss
Hannah Beard, saying that she had ar
rived snfe and was delighted with the
people and Texas.
Miss Beaid's acceptance of a posi
tion In the educational circles of Lo
rena Texas, is the culmination of
thorough college training and a stead
fast ambition to make use of her ac
complishments. From childhood she
was under an excellent music teacher
In her home town, then she entered a
Virginia college and last -year took a
post-graduate course in New York city.
With diligence she perfected her gift
as a Reader which Will be her special
work in the Lo e Star State.
Besides, being capable of imparting
understanding that which she has at
tained in music and voice, Miss Beard
has a rare personality. She is radiant
with life, and et, her disposition is
charact- rized with sympathy and gen
tleness. A sweet little lesson that Miss
Bearitbj-ought home from the East is
appealing to the girl who wants to be
Irresistibly charming. She said that
whenever her anxiety or engerness
would become too intense that oue of
the New York Instructors would say to
her In a quieting tone: "Love, Joy and
Peace." Trjis is a glimpse of the cult
ure and beautiful impressions that
Mis3 Beard has had Those who are
sensitive to the true and lovely tnings
of life may come in touch with them
in the ssociatlon with her, and the
young girls of Texas who are to be her
pupils, are fortunate Indeed.
The Woman Makes the Home
She makes it best who, looking after the
culinary department, turns her back resolute
ly upon unhealthful, or even suspicious, food
accessories. She is economical; she knows
that true economy does not consist in the use
of inferior meat, flour, or baking- powder. She
is an earnest advocate of home made, home
baked food, and has proved the truth of the
statements of the experts that the best cook
ing Jh the world today is done with Royal
Baking Powder, vh-.---. '
