section of Da less county Following the meeting of the Equity farmers of the northern portion of Ohio county in Fordsville Satur jay at which the pooling pledges were declared canceled negotiations were begun with Owensboro buyers looking to a sale of all time Equity tobacco in that section of the county practically all of the territory north of Rough river with the exception of a small area immediately across the river from Hartford J M Vlll han of Owensboro was one of the buyers approached Ho made a proposition to take all of the tobacco This was reported back to the growers and Mr Vaughn was notified Tuesday tint It hud been ac opted All of this tobacco will be received and paid for at Fordsville If the formal cvontract can be signed and other preliminary details completed it is likely that delivery will begin on Monday of next week A committee claiming to represent the Equity growers in the Whites vllle section of Davless county was In Owensboro Tuesday negotiating for the sale of the 1907 crop The members of this committee returned homo Tuesday afternoon and It was reported from Whltesville Tuesday night that they were successful In making a sale through the Home Warehouse company and that the tobacco will be received in Whltesvllle beginning Monday A representative of the Home Warehouse company was seen Tuesday night and asked about this deal The statement from Whltesvlllo was repeated to lint and he was asked either to confirm or deny it His re ply was that just at this stage of the game he would prefer not toI make any statement for publication relative to the Whltesvllle matterI It is certain however that a factory I at Whltesvlllo has been secured by an Owensboro buyer and Is being held in readiness for receiving to baccoWe produce the

Joined the Home Ware Ihouse From Breckinridge Mr Sharp Thinks That Report Was Started to Induce Equity i People to Falter INarrows Ky Dec 31I notice an the Hartford Republican under an Owensboro heading dated Dec 22 stating that the organized tobacco j growers of Brecknerldge county have associated themselves with the I Green River District Equity Ware house association commonly known j as tho home warehouse This action was taken at a county meeting held at Hardinsburg Saturday and the resI olutlou providing that the Brecken ridge county growers go Into the home I warehouse association was adopted by a vo 3 of 154 to 2 This means that the asosclation to UreClenrldgelcount uity Warehouse company The above is misleading to say the very least of It In the first place the meeting was not called by the Equity people and but few of them had any thing to do with It It was understood from time start by the Equity people to be a move byI the homo warehouse faction and theI nonunion men to sell their 1907 crops and in time Saturday meeting when the deal was made only those who would agree to sell their 1007 drops regard less of the 1905 and 190G crops were allowed to vote hence tho result This report is evidently put out In this form for the purpose of creating j the impression in other counties that tho District A S of E organization has been broken and thereby induce a rush of tobacco to market or similar deals to be made in other counties I Brother Equity people these are times that are calculated to try mens souls as well as their pocketbooks for the power of the trust Is being made manifest In various ways It has evidently brought the mutiny panic toI help It break our organization and force us to turn our crops loose at reduced prices that it can reap a harI j vest of millions of dollars at our ex pense Just think of ltI Trash of tho i I best crop of tobacco grown In years selling from 2 to 3 per hundred when last winter our No 3 trashthe worst in years shipped from our pool ling houses netted time growers 450 per hundred and other grades in propor j tlon Just think of it Time fine crop of 1907 not averaging as much on the j Owensboro market as tho very Infer lor crop of 190G by 150 to 200 per hundred See how fast the people are paying for their folly Raise a clamor I i reIlultsent experience is certainly enough to convince farmers that the time Is ripe for starting a move by which they may utillzu their own means In controlling their crops und quit turning over their moray to corporations to hoard and hgld away from us Take out the farmers

says the Owens boro Inquire Of the crop of 1906 there had been sold at the auction house in this city at this tmo last year 897 loads against only 301 loads during the same time this year that Is from October 1 to tho present time IThe price Is manifestly lower than rlt was a year ago and this seems to bo duo to the fact that there is less competition among the buyers at the auction house duo to the fact that the American Tobacco company and the Gallaher Limited were buyers there last year but aro not this year and due also to the fact that there U more dumping this year Practically no Indiana topcco has come to the auction house yet this year It is be ing sold or held for pooling on the other side of the river Another great difference between this and last year is in tho matter of pooling with the regular A S of E committee Only a few thousand pounds have yet been delivered at the pooling houses while last year about three million pounds had been deliv ered to them at this date

Doctrine A reader wants to know why the Democrat and Chronicle calls Tariff reformers FredTraders Because that Is what they call tfemselves when t they demand a Tariff for revenue only and denounce Protection as robbery The Charleston News and Courier one of the ablest Democratic papers in the country recently ex pressed its contempt for Tariff revis ion and declared that Tariff reformIY should be the slogan of the Demo cracy Revision said the News and Courier might imply a readjustment of Protective duties while reformI went condemnation and rejection of the principles of Protection That was honest talk and the same doc trine is preached although often In less definite and aggesaivo terms by Northern Democratic papers To boI against Protection is to be for Fref Trade and it is well to

Wherefore the black fellow who has made tho journey rejoins his tribe as a white fellow Thus It was that when I the white man first came to the land the aborigines regarded him as n long lost comrade Mucuiillana Magazine AnimalIwhale as it is better called by the Norwegians is not only the largest living animal but the largest that has ever lived reaching a jeugth of eighty feet or very rarely o little more Whales grow much larger than this In books and newspapers but in actual life not one ln a dozen even ef this species attains a length of eighty feet The popular idea of a whale Is that it is a clumsy Animal but as shown by models It has the graceful lines of a yacht The total weight of a whale Is about sixty tons and unusually largo and fat indi viduals must reach at least sixtydye tons The largest animal of the past so far discovered Is the great Dinosaur brontosaurus and this big reptile weighed about thirtyeight tonsMu seum News t Why He Never Married- A matinee girl from

suppose it Is treason to my supe rior officer to say so but doctors are certainly not easy patients to man age remarked the trained nurse At least this has always been my export once and most nurses you will find agree with mu In the matter I have recently been nursing a physician through typhoid dnd my experience with hIm was typical of the cases of the profession In general Doctors know

Thou since be has always been In a position to Issue orders to the nurse be cannot easily bring himself to take orders from her and he Is disposed to criticise and take exception to treat ment which
