It is the purpose of the postmaster to take in all residents that can be reached in a satisfactory way at the present time. The town has gradua grown and stretched out during the past two years, and it becomes necessary therefore to lengthen all three of the city delivery routes. This will be good news, we feel sure, to the large number of citizens who have not been served by the city carrier m the past This change will go into effect on February 1st. There will also be a new collection made in the business section of the town late in the even ing, commencing the first of the month. Two Solid Trains Of Tobacco Shipped The big tobacco shippers tell us that there are heavy shipments being made' now from Greeneville every day. It is estimated that the many cars going out each day would make up , two long freight trains during each week. When it is taken into' consideration just how much tobac co can be gotten into one freight car some idea can be had as to the vast amount of leaf tobacco that is leav ing this market daily. There are also many car loads of tobacco being received here daily from the Virginia and other tobacco belts. Nothing unusual to see half a dozen cars of tobacco sidetracked at one time. These "heavy shipments from the other tobacco sections are doing much to increase the Greene ville market and as the fact becomes more generally known that this mar ket has established a record for the highest prices' it is expected tnat sales from Virginia and other sec tiohs will increase. There has been almost three mil lion pounds of tobacco sold here up to the present time. " This does not include the more than ' a million pounds of flue cured or bright tobac co sold before the hurley market opened. Including the bright tobacco the sales here this year will no doubt go over the seven million pound mark. ' ' Sales are being conducted on the Bernard warehouse floor today and it will require the entire day to com plete the sale on this floor. The Ban ner warehouse will sell Wednesday. All floors are full and enough tobacco stored in the various houses to fill them several times again. , GLENWOOD Tobacco working has been the or der of the day.

HART IN "THE LION OF THE HILLS" "The Girl Without a Chance" Is Play Of Underworld Whitney Collins' production of "The Girl Without a chance" giver, at Staub's theatre Tuesday night gave a very illuminating peep intc the underworld.

Knoxvilk Journal and Tribune. 'THE GIRL WITHOUT A CHANCE' Robert Sherman, the Chicago The atrical Producer, is fast forging tc the front.
