Farmers from long -distances are aware of this advantage, and in ’he last several years have been coming hers in greater numbers to do their selling and buying.

Inaugurated Tobacco Culture* Year After It Was Pronounced Success In Granville (Oxford Public Ledger) Although Granville Is the birthplace >f flue-cured tobacco, that honor is II spy ted by Col. A. B. Carrington, he ■krell known tobacconist of Dan nie. .The first flue-cured tobacco by vood was on the farm of the late A. J.

The Reidi;- •ille Review contains the following m erestlng claims of Col. Carrington. “A. B. Carrington reviewed fr.endly he hist'ory of the birth tobacco in t*>try. in which industry hj has play d a most prominent par,, during his ddress at Shady Grove t:«e other day. “Few people," said he- "know' he bright tobacco industry originated n Casweil county. In 1856 the first .right tobacco was cured hero, when a armer used charcoal instead of wood vhich produced bright tobacco wh L n ■ured, so that Caswell cour/y has a ital interest in bright tobat'o “Up to 1901 a hundred to a hundred md twent*y-flve numon pounds of >right tobacco were raised annually In -he Old Belt Virginia and North Caro ina, of which about fifty million tounds were sold in Dar.vill*, the bal ince at other bright markets in Vir ginia and North Caro.ina, such as Winston-Salem, Durham. Oxforc. and Henderson. “During the same period only around -hiray-five to forty million pounds of oright tobacco were raised in Eastern North Carolina and Sou-h Carolina. “Since 1900 there has been a larg? ncrease in bright tobacco, both in the Did Belt Virginia and North Carolina •ectlon and in the section south of us. Up to 1900 only a small percent of the crop was raised east of Raleigh. “In 1930 tha crop In the Old Belt Virginia and North Carolina sections, known as “Old Belt" tobaroc, had >n creased to about two hundred and eighty million pounds. While the crop in Eastern Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia had Increased to five •hundred and seventy-five miUion pounds. “From this you can see the tremen dous increase In bright tobacco, and how much the increase has been in the section south of the original to bacco territory. “During the Ws" continued Col. Carrington, “the Old Belt Virginia and North Carolina district had practicably a monopoly on bright tobacco, and what the world needed was gotten from this section, principally through Danvilvle. “Since 1901 the amount raised in the wmmmm, t*.&j racer, tmnwa nmir.mtman * tm new territory has Increased trio-en dously, while we show some increase also in the Old Belt Virginia and North Carolina sections. “The world consumption of bright tobacco has increased along with the increased crop. But there is a ten dency to over-production mat has caused low prices and made it less profitable to raise tobacco in this sec tion than it was 30 years ago, as the tobacco raised in the south of us have taken the place of the tobacco with which the world was originally sup plied fro mthis immediate section in Old Belt Virginia and North Carolina. “In the meantime, during the past ten years, a concerted effort seems to have been made by almost every coun try in the world to raise tobacco, some of them meeting with a fair measure of success, and the United States gov ernment reports that the total amoun. of tobacco raised in the world is 5,- 266,364,000 pounds, of which the Unit ed States raises 1,635.210,000 pounds. “A small portion of this is brignt to- ( bacco which is replacing cigarette types raised in this country. While this country is holding Its own. it is meeting heavy competition with mar kets in the world In all classes of to bacco, and the monopoly was enjoyed thirty years ago no longer exists. “You doubtless remember.” said the speaker, "that in 1918-1919, immedi ately following the world war. tobacco sold at a very high average. The average for 1919 was about fifty-four cents a pound for the entire bright crop of tobacco in Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia. “The bankrupt countries of Europe were unable to handle tobacco at this price and began to look elsewhere for cheaper tobaccos, resulting in Increases of production in foreign countries, with a consequent loos of markets for high priced bright tobacco raised In this country. "It is a fact when tobacco In this country reaches a certain average price, foreign countries get their sup ply at lower prices from tobacco raised in other countries that is produced cheaper, is commoner in quality and sold at a lower price." REPEAL OF TAX ON CIGARETTES ASKED Austin, Tex., Sept. 23.—Repeal of the stamp tax on Cigarettes, which was passed at the last session of the legislature, is sought lu a bill intro duced in the House by Represent*- tive C. E. Farmer, of Fort Worth. He declared that the tax. which during its first year yielded to the State a total of 83,500,000 revenue, is a burden on the masses, due to the increased price of cigarettes. SMALL CUBAN CROP PUNTED F 11932 Yield Will Be Far Below Previous Years Due to Curtailments Washington. Sept. 23.—Recent re ports confirm that the 1932 Cuban to bacco crop will be far below that of the previous year due largely to cur tailed plantings. Weather conditions have not been altogether satisfactory. Lack of cool weather during the win ter months has somewhat impaired the genera! quality of the tobacco, al though it is said to be of good bum. ■Prices, whic hare still unremumera tlve, will obviously depend on the de mand the new crop will have. Not many sales have been made In the country to date. Most farmers are packing their own tobacco and few "vegas" have come to the market as yet. The cigar makers' strike which began on January 14 has practically settled itself. Havana cigar workers are willing to resume work but as most of the manufacturers have In the meantime moved their factories to interior points, many are finding it difficult to seure employment, says American Commercial Attache Albert F. Nufer. Fair Premiums Offer Cash For Farm Exhibitors Raleigh, Sept. 23 —(AP) -Vegetable growers have an excellent chance to pick up some extra cash this fall by exhibiting their products at various fairs—especially if they select qual ity produce and properly prepare It. Robert Schemidt, vegetable re search spectalist for the agricultural experiment mation at N. C. State Col lege, pointed out today that “Its not the largest specimen that cops the ■premunm, these days. Products are now Judged on unformlty in size and shape, smootheness, freedom from blemish and trueness to type and variety.” Every exhibitor, Shemidt said, should be careful to observe that the specimen is of a desirable market size; that the exhibit is properly en tered; and that the vegetables are all true to type. He warned that mislabelled entries will be thrown out. For instance, he said, if an exhibitor sends In Nancy Hall potatoes, as Porto Ricos, the en try is disqualified. If entries are to be shipped or trans ported. he cautioned that each speci men should be wrapped separately to avoid bruising. “Just a little extra care along these lines,” Schemidt said, “will bring ex tra dividends in premiums and will afford the grower much satisfaction from the results of his fair work.” Sixty years ago the combined cre dits of New York. London, Paris and Berlin, was less than one billion dol lars.
