Mercantile Lines A Popular Trade Centre Commercial Advantages Offered by the Enter prising Metrop9lis of Garrard to Citizens of the Sur rounding Country Interesting Sketches of Establishments Do ing the Bulk of the Business Brief Bi ographies of WideAwake Busi ness and Professional Men Home pride is natural Every good citizen takes pride in the advancement in material respects of the community in which he lives Surely then the people of Lancaster may be pardoned for feeling especially gratified that their town has become so popularly known as a thriving community of prosperous business enterprises Since Lancaster first became known to the outside world as a location of bright and encouraging surroundings it has never striv en for any licticious boom out its prosperity has steadily increased in propor tion to the development of the surrounding country The prime impetus of its prosperity is its eligible situation surrounded as it is by the most fertile farming lands in Kentucky While Garrard county of which Lancaster is seat is capable of raising a diversity of crops it is chiefly noted as a hemp and tobacco growing section The remarkable success of these two crops in Garrard County is a matter upon which she congratulates herself and she is proud to publish to the world In the raising of hemp the lands of this county have yielded more abundantly than any section ofsimilar area in the state The crop of 1900 which was handled in 1901 amounted to 2800000 pounds and the crop of 1901 which is now being marketed will exceed 3000000 pounds The yield is constantly increasing each year the average for the past one per acre being 1200 pounds Seventyfive per cent of the hemp seed used in cultivation in the state is produced in Garrard County Over 2000000 pounds of tobacco was raised last year or about 1500 pounds to the acre an yield and one of which any section may feel proud Of this nearly loOO000 pounds was handled here in Lancaster the average price received being Gj cents per pound A vast portion of the hemp of the county is also marketed here the prices ranging from 500 to 530 per 112 Ibs all of which goes to prove that the buyersand shippers of Lancaster are live wide awake men who provide conditions which attract farmers to this marketfrom all parts of the county And since the buyer and grower are as necessary to each other as the consumer and producer are to the life of any industry credit must be shared by both branches to whose energy and ability the remarkable success is due A drive through the county will convince one of the thrift and enterprise of the farmers the fine farms well cultivated and well stocked good residences and out buildings speak plainer than words of their energies Backed up by this excellent farming community and with active business and professional men intelligent and social citizens good railroad facilities a splendid graded school churches of all denominations and with fine
