Tobacco is coining down every Jiv
more and more tu the smoking basis. I
Our grandfathers used it as snufT, our 1

are gone or are going out of fashion, and (
America's aromatic weed is
itself to tho pi} e eijrar or eigarctt-. ' 1
SnufT was the weaknc.s of tho century,
and tobacco in that shape was not le- } ,

grnndes domes tool" a pinch when it was ! 1

Tobacco clicwir ij, while' restricted
some ex'nit to this country, was a I aim
well nigh universal hcie half a centVrv |
but it also i.- to-day rapidly
out. Although the populaMi.il of the .
country lias increased during the mean- j
while, there in not hall as much chewing 1
tobacco sold as ten jears ag:>, not u
third as much as twenty years past.
The only explanation is that coiistum
attacks on tobacco elietving are forcini:
it out of use. A score cd years ago,
when came to ihi ennntry,
they always dwelt upi n ties -u! »j-i.
and the American habit of ohewing to- !
hacco and "expectorating intn co | -
dors," as we cleg intly led it, si-ei.•• d
f • arouse their IIO.S! inUMiso disgust.
The American habit got abuse ere" ih
in this country, and the pr the pul
pit and (he feminine win id' deiiouneo i
or ridiculed it Then, ti«», Americans j
became giote particular in their tress,
ami the tobacco marks en the shirt bo
som that formerly went utlliuoticed gave I
rise to unfavorable remarks. Ilowevet
that be, tobacco chewing lus fallen off
to a great extent. There was a time
when Congress locked like a convention |
of chewors, and when the halls af the j
Senate ami House were littered Willi ,
I'o-duy it in said that tobacco is his
ing it hold in the world. It is consuin- '
ed ill as large qunntiiie» as ever, but it
is reserved almost altogether fwr smok
ing purposes. - 11mcs-Democrat.
Il is very plain lh.it the '/Vm.s Dtm
ucrat is cither "behind" on the tobacco !
question or is trying to do something for
seed leaf and cigar inun. If Such r. j
stat.i of affairs existed as claimed bv the | i
Times- Democrat, what would become of j '
our Virginia and North t arolina maim- 11
i clurors who li ve large fortunes wrap- j I
ped up in plug tobacco factories 1 II I
sucli statements arc true, why is it that 1 I
tlicso manufacturers ur.i making money j
every d«y and arc the most substantial j t
men of the country ? It is a very crro- j
neous idea that the Ncw Orleans paper
has taken hold of. Chewing is not on ■
the decline, but it is most assuredly on J '
the increase. The returns of Ihc Inter- |
nal Uevenuc Peparlment for six months
ending July Ist of this jear show an in- j I
crease of over 25,000,000 pounds over I
tho same petiod last year on liianiifactu- | t
red stock of this kind. Tho chew be- |
longs to the poor man ami the laborer,
and it must be admitted thai these ar' I
in the majority. While Congressmen
and millionaires may liav■ given up the ]
chew for the fragrant Havana, the chew i
cjntinues to gam favor with 'he lower , |
class, it is not so expensive as smok- •
ing, and oan be indulged in while tho 1
wording man Is attending to his duties,

I RUING TilK WRONG THING.
11 The toleieco crop in Nin th Carolina
and Virginia is short, the crop in the
Western States is almost •» complete
failure. Tobacco will be high for at
hoist two years on tliia* account Far- j
mcrs will do well to prepare to plant a j
tiig crop next yen, and cure it well, for ,
good tobacco will firing a good price, |
when poor tobacco will not bring much.
Work in tobaeco pays better than any
The above extract is taken from our
valued con temporary, the Salisbury
Ileraltl, but we .cuuuot believe that it
cxpiesses the real sentiment of tho edi
tors. Tim sentiment taut prices are
likely fo rule high for time conic is very
true in one particular, provided the j
preparation for the next year's indicate ]
another short acreage. Tobacco sells
high at present and why ' Simply be
cause onr farmers were compelled to j
plant a short crop 1 isf spring. As soon
tin there was a crrtainty of such shortage '
prices wen up and hive remained so.
The coec|Ucnce is, the farmers* who
have devoted more time to their other
crops, will have a bountiful supply on
hand for the coming winter, and iu ad
dition will get as much for their I diacco
as Iney would had a largo crop been
N "v It !s see what our friend' advice
would cause were il heeded and carried
out. So suou as preparations are made
lor a "big crop," so soou will pricesd -
o'i'ie—ong bel'uro a single plant has
liucn sef. Thus wo gru it would mate
rially reduce Ihc farmer's income from
j tlie crop already housed. A large crop,
if planted—say somt'liing like the IS fi
orop--would glut Ihc market next fall,
and this hi# crop, haitily planted, poor
ly cultivate?, and Still more pnoriy cur
ed - natural consequences id a "big j
crop"—would bring even less iu real !
money tbac thecr p that is now being I
marketed, tlerc we see the farmer ac- I
tually loses the extra labor required in ]
making a big crop and besides finds |
himself with no grain supply on hand I
w i'li which to support his family.
Hence the roasons are plainly against j
tbo planting of a big tobacco crop We ]
think lirothers Bucrbaum and Kames ;
stuiply made a lapsus tingui. and did
not intend to advise their many farmer
readers to plant tobacco on a big scale
the coming year' Our planters have
plainly teen and felt tho foolisbuess of
such a course during thepn.it few years.
By all means plant less tebacco and
make it better. This year's crop and
prices are a standing testimonial in fa
vor of such a policy. And the press of
tho two States must tahe hold of this
matter aud push it, ar tho nigh prices
that are now ruling will induce the far
mers to fail iuto their old errors again.

Spanish, Russian and Polish ladies

j no one thinks the worse of iheui for it.
| I should (lot like to see ladies suioUo
j cigars or pipes, but I can see no impro
priety in an occasioual cigarette. There
is ii great difference in the way they are
smoked. 1 have seen sou.o women
smoke a cigarette so daiutly that it was
a beautiful sight to watch tlie delicate
smoke culling up from their rosy lips,
while others pull'away in such masculine
maimer that one becotnos thoroughly
disgustod. I have been at a number of
ditinor parties where cigarettes were
passed round to the ladies when the
cigars wore brought to thi gentlemen.
I am talking about the best people now,
and not Bohemians. If the waiters of
Delnionieo's or the Brunswicke would
would tell you, you would be surprised
at the number of private parties where
cigarettes are smoked by ladies.

suffice. Vtter eating all the betries In
