RESOURCES There is much uncertaint as to the prices that will be paid for tobacco on the market this year. Sometime ago it was predicted that prices would be as high or higher than last year, but those who heretofore have been in a position to know, seem at a loss this season to predict just what effect the close of the world's war will have on the market. There is a large supply of unmanufactured tobacco on hand in this coun try and a shortage in Europe, and it seems if shipping facilities should become less difficult than they have in the past few years, and the congestion be relieved you might expect higher: prices. While there is a shortage in Ken -tucky, the production as a whole is several million lbs. larger. These things taken into consideration with other unprecedented conditions thruout the country, and unsettled monetary conditions of foreign countries, it seems hard to tell when will be the best time to market your tobacco. " It looks as if burley of good quality will open up well, but above all both Dark and Burley MUST, be in good order to sell well. We have known for some time that the large dealers and manufacturers would not be on the market until after December 10th, and for these reasons would not announce our opening until Wednesday, December 11th. It is not our policy to secure your patronage by unfair means and flattering reports of prices. You will find onr market will be conducted on the square. You will be well cared for, in your turn. You will receive courteous treatment, and your tobacco will be given the best attention possible to secure the highest price. Our fees for selling remain the same as last year.

Notary Public It has been suggested thae a magnificent shaft, a monument, be erected in Columbia in honor of the Adair county boys who lost their livj-- in France, and who died in Camps. Ic should be one that would do credit to the county, one that parents of the dead heroes ahd their friends would take a pride in. Many towns in Ken tucky now have memorial monuments and others will be erected. A shaft of the proper height for Adair county boys would perhaps cost from $2,000 to'$3.000. but the sum could be easily raised, with a small amouut from each donor.
