NO use arguing about it, or making chin-music in a
minor key! If you've got the jimmy-pipe or ciga
rette makin's notion cornered in your smokeappetite, slip
it a few liberal loads of Prince Albertl

fragrant, so fascinating in flavor, so refreshing!
Prince Albert can't bite your tongue or parch your
throat! You go as far as you like according to your smokei
upirit Our exclusive patented process cuts out bite and
parch!

Agriculture cooperatlng a ith the Ex
tension Dilviion, Louisiana State Un-,
versi'y. The plan of profit-sharlnlg
will solve the farm labor problem,
says Mr. Harbert. Give the tenant
an opportunity to raise hogs, chick.
ens, etc.. of his own and he will take
a real interest i*. his work 1r4d in thi
farm Then when' he is offered fve
or six dollars a day for outside work
he will refuse with the yleas that he
has interests of his own to look at

The common method of profit-shar.
hits in the South is for the landlord
to furnish land, teams, farming Im
plements and house for the tenant
while the tenant furnishes the labor.
The tenant then gets one-half of the
trops produced.
Mr. Harbert advocates firmness,
