The Judge commissioned the Jurors and members of Kentucky. the Court to get down to business as soon as possible and to push things law-su- it As supervisor of sales for the Ow- ensboro tobacco market and also as a tobacco grower, I have observed that the tobacco growers of the Green River district are retrograding somewhat from the former Green River type of tobacco. The soil in this section of the state is peculiarly adapted to this type of tobacco, and is the only section in the U. S. that grows this type, but I notice that a great many of our growers are planting a "One Sucker," and the "Greenwood," which is a cross between the "One Sucker" and some broader leaf type, which if you are not very careful in the selection of your eed plants will soon retrograde back to the narrow leaf, large fiber tobacco which is not our Green River type at all. If the "Greenwood" is properly propagated, planted early, matured well, and cut while the weather is warm, it makes a well finished product and usually sells well on the market, but if the season is not so favorable, it cures green and makes a dirty, mongrel type of tobacco. In my opinion this is largely the reason our tobacco this year is bringing unsatisfactory prices. Proper Selection of Seed We learn from our experience and through our agricultural colleges, that our tobacco can be propagated and improved the same as corn, wheat, and sto'ck, And I hope the tobacco growers of the Green River district will turn their attention to the proper propagation of their tobacco by the careful selection of their seed, and soon return to the original Green River type. I have talked with practically all the buyers on this market, and they are practically of the same opinion, and to express their opinion more clearly, I quote a prominent buyer on this subject, which. I am sure expresses the opinion of practically all the buyers. , Narrow-Lea- f Nondescript "We are menaced at the present time with a great percentage of' narronondescript tobacco that has w-leaf evidently been brought about by the prapagation of certain narrow-lea- f or Green River tobacco producing something which entirely distinct from the genuine Green River type. And as this real Green Rivir, type was rapidly becoming attractive to the both in this country and abroad, this condition is very plainly hurtful to our section. The position that some take, that, this intermingling of the types produces some very useful and manufacturing tobacco, is somewhat misleading. For example: what we know as "Greenwood" tobacco may in its incipiency or just following its propagation with broad-lea- f tobacco furnish some 'really . mau-facture- rs high-price- pecially. , The report shows that the manu- - , facturers and dealers have in .stock 50,000,000 pounds less of Burley than they had on January 1, 1917, and 40,- 000. 000 pounds less than on January 1, 1918. Stocks of Burley arc greatly less now than at any other time during the last seven yeajs. "This makes it very evident," said Represenative Cantrill author 'of the tobacco census law, "that the high prices now being paid for Burley tobacco will , continue, and in fact would not be surprised at prices going still higher."

Df Babbage, Cloverport, Ky. Dear Mr. Babbage: 5 many things have happened since 1 wrote to you last, that it seems time is rushing by with the greatest rapidity, less its schedule might be delayed. Christmas has come and gone, wc have- - passed on into a new year, school has finished. I have deserted my sentry post at Langres and am now enjoying a leave way down in Southern France. The Christmas Holidays were en- joyed by all the boys although the time passed very quitely, except a V night or two when some of the boys got "vin ranged" full of red wine which has a simular effect to laughing gas. We had Xmas tree and other ' decorations accordingly, but did not hang up a'sock for Uncle Sam. Successful In His Exams. In regard to- the school, I am glad to say that I was successful in all my examinations, but at the same time, I must admit my disappointment over not racing , ..commission. But instead, of a commission, for our 3 xnoMtfcs 4gM and endurance test of diftewk a$i intensive training, the "War Apartment has seen fit to give a tiny slip of paper, so called a certifi I proficiency or elegibility cer- es ,Uya our qualification for promotion V Lieutenantcy when a vacancy vSecwi,. which. tf course is not likely Vals-les-Bain- s, to happen until there's another war, and now the peace commissioners are forming a constitution for a "League of Nations" with the point of view of making impossible a future war, this I sincerely hope, will be realized. But the question concerned is, where or when will our handout come in. Now what's your honest opinion? Of course that's life, and so with consideration other things being equal, we have decided to cease hostilities and bury the hatchet. So if nothing happens to prevent my returning I will again be in a few days, with my old organization. "M" Company 330 Inft. somewhere in France.

They are political divisions for civil and administrative purposes. The boundaries are marked by signs which you will observe as you travel throughout the country. The Ardeche area inculdes the towns of St. LaBastide, Julien, Point DeLabaume, Niegles, LaLavade, St. Poivat and Aubenas. None of which are more than a two hours hike from Vals. Aubenas. which is the largest has a population of 8.C0O and is a historic old town. It has a chateau built about 850 and a hand made clock of the 15th century which is still running. About an hour's hike from Anbenas is the cite of a Roman Camp occupied by Cae-sand his legions in the latter years of the Gallic Wars. Romans Laid Road Foundation. It has been said that the stone roads, and the vineyards which cover the hills of Ardeche have been more than 20o0 years in building. The Romans laid the foundation for the wonderful system of roads which now cover this country like a net work, from the largest city to the smallest village in the mountains top. Whole mountain sides, as high as the vine will grow, have been terrace by means of stone walls filled with earth foe vineyards, Has but to be seen to be appreciated. Last but not least important, 15 miles South of Vals near the city of Avignon, was quarried the stone for the Statue of Liberty. May Get To Come Home.

Much to my regret this is the last day of our leave. I have enjoyed ever hour of it and have had a wonderful time. We had hotel accomodations, slept in beds between two white sheets and no cooties either ate at a table, had dishes and napkins, and most of all, there was no bugle to wake one early in the morning, no one to shout, "outside for chow," get in line you rube, where do you get that stuff" and numerous other similar expressions.
