WISCONSIN TOBACCO MARKET (Continued From Page /.) is pretty generally known. Several prominent local packers estimate the new crop at about 66,000 cases. It would be interesting to know just how much was bought by local packers for themselves. As local packers who bought expect to do only a jobbing bus iness with their purchases, they are in a position to get better prices than out side packers, who might expect to do business on a more extended scale. If the 1916 crop only made 66,000 cases, and there is small reason for supposing it made more, some idea may be had when it is considered that the United Cigar Manufacturers Cos. and the Eisenlohrs gathered in at least 40,000 cases. It was understood that the “United’ ’ was in the market for 30,000 cases, but nobody knows how near that mark its buyers got. They certainly are credited with getting not less than 25,000 cases, and the Eisen lohrs with 15.000. The Bergers of Cin cinnati and Fendrich of Evansville, Ind., were heavy buyers, too. There seems to be no good reason why anybody who bought the 1916 to bacco, even at 16 cents, should not make money on it. The 1915 is selling so high that a local dealer, who, to his sorrow, has none of it, said last week that it would sell readily at any price put on it. The cigar business is more than hold ing its own. Just now the manufac turers are busy replenishing the stock of the retailers, depleted by the holiday trade. And so far as the manufactur ers can see, they are not apprehensive of any slump in trade. Card of Thanks. We take this opportunity to return sincere thanks to the friends and neigh bors who so kindly assisted our mother in the years that she lived in Edgerton and especially those who helped to care for her in times of sickness; also for the beautiful floral offerings at the funeral.
