Resolution on 1907 Cotton Acreage
The following resolution wa*!
passed by the great convention
of the Southern Cotton Association
held in Birmingham.
"In view of the fact that a great
many farmers have abopted the in
tensive system of farming, increas
ing the yield per acre and new ter
ritory each year is being planted in
cotton, that heretofore has not
grown cotton, thereby increasing
the -production, there
fore in order to maintain satisfac
tory and remunerative pi ices, we
urge and recommend a full reduc
tion of 10 per cent, of cotton acre
age for the year 1907."
"We further recommend that the
acreage so reduced be planted in
"We are sure that unless the
farmers unitedly reduce their acre
ageof cotton that they will lie con
fronted at the end of the season
with equally bad, if not worse con
ditions than they were in 1904,
when cotton went down to 6 cents
Respectfully submitted by the
Committee on acreage."

men of the State who are interested
in maintaining afair price for cotton

FLUE CURING IMPROVESTOMCCO LIKE
ROASTING IMPROVES GREEN COFFEE
Flue Curing Develops the Stimulating Aroma and Taata
Found In Schnapps that Satisfles Tobaoco Hunger
There are three ways used by far
mers for curing and preparing their
tobacco for the market; namely, sun
cured, air cured and flue cured. The
old and cheap way is called air cured;
the later discovery and improved way
is called flue cured. In flue-curing
the tobacco is taken from the field
and suspended over intensely hot
flues in houses especially built to re
tain the heat, and there kept in the
proper temperature until this curing
process developes in the tobacco the
stimulating taste and fragrant aroma
found in Schnapps tobacco, just as
green coffee is made fragrant and
stimulating by the roasting process.
Only choice selections of this ripe,
juicy flue cured leaC grown in the
famous Piedmont country, where the
best tobacco grows, are used in
Schnapps and other Reynolds' brands
of high grade, flue cufed tobaccos.

outside of the imitation plugs of to
bacco is flue cured, but the inside is

chew of Schnapps will satisfy tobacco

Expert tests' prove that this flue
cured tobacco, grown in the famous
Piedmont region, requires and takes
less sv/eetening than any other kind,
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
satisfying effect on cheWers. If the
kind of tobacco you are chewing don't
satisfy, more than the mere habit of
expectorating, stop fooling yourself
and chew Schnapps tobacco.
Schnapps is like the tobacco chew

at 50c. per pound in 5c cuts, strictly
