LEXINGTON, Ky., Dec. 21. A so lution of the disposition of the low grades of the 1920 tobacco crop has been found in Grant county in an of fer of the Ilurley Tobacco company of that county to furnish free storage, room for these grades and give the growers opportunity to pool them until sue time as there is a demand for them at a fair price. Notice has been triven the Grant county tobacco growers as follows: "All tobacco growers in tnis terri tory who desire to hold their low grade tobacco until after the good grades are sold will be given an op portunity to pool it in either of their houses, at Willkimstown or Dry Ridge, until same can be sold at a fair price. As many growers will have only a smalt quantity of low-grade It would not be practical to hold it at home nnd each grower sell it Indi vidually, as none of them wodld have sufficient of nny grade to make up a hogshead. By pooling and storing with one of the home houses the en tire crop can be sold at one time and to one buyer at a price considerably In ndvance ot what It would be likely to bring if sold individually." Announcement accompanies the no tice that the Hurley company will be able to furnish storage room for this tobacco until the opening sales In the fall of 1921, practically a year's sr age without cost to tne grower. If the tobacco is not sold by that time It may be placed In hogsheads and the Burley company agrees to make no charge except for prizing. Another warning to tobacco grow ers not to bring their low-grnfles to market Just at present was given by J. Morgan Gentry, himself a largo ,rr.u.A. ... wnli nu n wnrchouse man. after estimates by all the warehouses in the city nact snown neany i.uuu.uvu nounds of burlev received for tho opening sales Jan. 3.
