> Mt
The new year starts out with Ue >
long looked for tobacco season and p
Hopkinsville will experience the
busiest January in its history
Much of the crop has been sod
privately at prices ranging from 8
to 1125 round and this will result
in bringing to market several mi on
pounds of tobacco as soon asit can
be handled In addition to this whole
sale movement the three loose floors
will soon be overrun with business
1 from the territory within a radius of
50 miles
It is estimated that 30000 000
pounds of tobacco was sold here dur
sing 1910and 1911 is expected to cX
ceed all records
V r
As a tobacco market Hopkinsville
has no successful rival in the Dark
District Hopkinsville occupies the
unique position of having maintain
ed the market without serious inter
ruption throughout the tobacco war
and much territory was opened up
tp the city dealers while other mark
ets were inactive
Practically all of the old territory
is again patronizing the marke
the planters showing a delayed ap
preciation of the blessings Hopkins
tvine conferred upon them by main
taining a permanent market for their
products Net only is the crop this
season better and larger but the
prices are higher and the demand
The outlook is indeed bright
