COMPANY The Best Place to Trade After All Edgerton, Wisconsin Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter Edgerton - Wisconsin D G. RISTAD - Publisher FRIDAY. MARCH 10. 1922. Entered as Second-class Mail Matter at the Postoffice in Edgerton, Wisconsin. Rev. Boyd Accepts Call to Edgerton. The Rev. E. A. Boyd of Manitowoc has accepted the call to the Norwegian Lutheran church of Edgerton. In mak ing announcement of this fact one of the Manitowoc dailies has the follow ing comment to offer: The Rev. Boyd came here as suc cessor to the Rev. J. C. K. Preus nine years ago next May and during his pas torate has built up the membership of the church and has made a wide circle of friends here. He was an indefatig able worker and was identified with the Mozart club and other musical organ izations of the city. For three years he was leader of the high school band and under his directorship it gained a considerable fame as a musical organ ization. An orchestra was also organ ized and this is still a part of the high school activities. During the last year the church has had a greater gain in membership than in any single year of its history. The choir work has been a feature of the First Lutheran services and the church gained a wide reputation for its can tatas, many fine numbers of which were given. The Rev. Boyd, in addition to his music, makes oil painting a hobby and has many fine examples of his work at his home and there are many others at the homes of members of his church. The Rev. and Mrs. Boyd and their family, there are nine, six boys and three girls, are very popular. Two of the children, Rufin and Marion, were members of the 1920 graduating class at the high school and Miss Swanbild is a member of this year’s graduating class. All will be sorely missed but will be followed to their new home by the best wishes of a host of friends. Mr. Boyd will leave here with one of the most enviable records ever made in a local church. According to present plans the new pastor will have his installation service Sunday, May the 14th. U. S. Employment Service.

Shannon of Portage called in this market a day last week. E. M. Stanton of Stockton, 111., writes: “I have two crops of tobacco on hand; 21 cases of old tobacco that I think is good." Friday last week was a big day for tobacco delivery. Teams hauling bun dles were on the move throughout the day. Thos. Burns, formerly of Winona, Minn., and now with the General Cigar Cos. at Portage, was in the city the first of the week. The Front street warehouses in Ed gerton are now all operating; there is a job for everybody, and fair earnings are making everybody content. Nels Moe of Pleasant Springs had 1700 bundles of 1921; Henry Anderson of town of Albion had 1,000 bundles; both crops went to Greens Tobacco Cos. at Janesville at 7c straight, and they were well handled crops, too. Joseph A. Becker, field agent and statistician for the Wisconsin Co-opera tive Crop Reporting Service, was in the city last week looking up the probable value to the growers of the lobacco crops raised in the state during the past three years. The Vernon County Censor, Viroqua, says: Movement in tobacco is pro gressing nicely, barring, of course, the low prices at which the leaf is moving. The best crops are going at from 12 to 15 cents. Stemming stuff is selling at around 6£ cents. Tobacco men say that about 70 per cent of the crop is now under contract. The outside buyers have become very active of late. De liveries have been quite heavy the past week and will continue so the next week. Attention, Growers. Growers: We wish to again call your attention to our publication in last week’s issue of this paper. Our ship ments one day reached the SI,OOO mark, and shipments are made every day. One of the principal reasons why the northern farmers receive a better price for their leaf may be found in the fact that they buy the right kind of seed. A southern grower who got 12 and 5 for his 1921 told us that he bought the seed from us and did not have to sell for stemming prices. Respectfully, W. T. Pomeroy & Cos., Edgerton, Wis.
