T,here were 125,000 pounds of tobacco sold here today at prices as high as $1 per pound. The sales for the day averaged 60c per pound. The mark et remains excellent. At a meeting of the Kentucky High Cost of Living Commission held in Louisville, Col. P. H. Calla han of that city was elected chair man. .. .; ' ' i . Furthermore, it was, announced that the Department of Justice had taken over this commission and its full personnel, asking it to be the Governmental agency to carry out the spirit and letter of the law as outlined in the recent extension of the Lever Act which provides for fine and imprisonment of any one guilty of profiteering in any of the essentials of food, fuel and clothing, and the Commission has now agreed upon an extended program to effect an organization throughout the state, realizing that the present high cost of living is one of the most disturb- ; ing elements existing in Amerian life today? ' Since the Commission is now un der the direction of the Federal Gov ernment with the strength of the Department of Justice behind it, any one found profiteering in the essen tials of life may expect to be sum cessary commodities, and as soon as mittee has been organized whose du ty it is to fix a fair price on all ne cesary commodities, and as soon as these prices are completed, any one found charging a. higher price will be promptly proceeded against thru the U. S. District Attorney's office. However it is absolutely neces sary that the public patriotically do their part in this work' by promptly reporting to the High Cost of Liv ing Commission at Louisville, Ky., all cases where apparent overcharge has been made, for the field of inves tigation is so very large that the com mittee's investigators can personally locate only a small percentage of the offenders, therefore, it is the purpose of this body to enlist the cooperation of all business, civic, religious and welfare associations, but more es pecially te citizens themselves in an effort to remedy the present condi tion. A most agressive plan of campaign was outlined with District Attorney Gregory, and Slattery of the United States Court present who are to give their full co-operation and assistance I and the public now has Vie assurance that any cases of over charge report ed will have prompt attention but in sending in these reports, it is abso- luteLv necessary in order to make proper investigation that the detailed information be given as to the price paid for the article itself, date of purchase, and name of dealer, over the signature of. the purchaser. The efforts of the Commission so far have been largely confined to the city of Louisville, where it has suc ceeded in bringing about considera ble benefits and it is now our pur pose to entend the usefulness of this Commission to all parts of the State, and anyone anywhere should write to the High Cost of Living Commis sion, Louisville, Kentucky, if they have been overcharged or if they know of any overcharging prevailing.

HARDWICK -o- NO LIMIT IS PLACED ON MAIL FOR CHRISTMAS . -V . The postoffiee department has not received any orders to curtail ship ments of Christmas packages. The only advice so far has been to mail Christmas parcels aa early as possible, but a rumor that an or der has been given that none can be mailed or sent by parcels post after tomorrow .is not correct, according to Postmaster Moseley. He made the following statement of the situation to date The, following order has beea issu ed by the Postoffiee Department un der date of December 4, 1919, urg ing the early mailing in Christmas packages. "Mail them early and avoid dis appointment. .
