AN UNBELIEVABLE FACT.
Here's a tiii story almut a to
bacco sale. And the funniest thing
about it. especially to Mr. B. W. Cow
herd, is that it ia a true story. This
is the story as told to the Kenturkian
by one who. knows the facta and has
seen the cadence.
On June the 'JMh day, 1918, II. W.
Cowherd, of (ritcey, set out an acre
of tobacco en In farm. Thi acre of
tobacco thrived from the start and
did well. On July IK (last Thurs
day) Mr. Cowherd sold this acre of
tobacco ju4 '.'II days old to Mr. Wal
trr Cox. also of (irscey, for $200 00
canh price and received a check there
for. Anyone doubting the truth of
this story will please verify same by
communicating with either Mr. Cow
herd or Mr. Cox, or both.
