; While no definite statement has been
given out at the office of the Burley

bacco circles here that the association
has sold 10.000,00 pounds of it's best
tobacco to the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco
Company, of Winston-Salem, N. C.
What is regarded as equivalent to
confirmation of the deal has been the
presence In Lexington of W. N. Rey
nolds, president of the company, and
E. T. Kirk, of Maysville, prominent
In the company's organization.
It is known that Mr. Kirk was call

Mr Reynolds, and It- Is said that the
6eal fbr tne purchase or the 10, 000, two
pounds of tobacco- was closed then
with Jas. C. Stone, president of the
association, and that the price paid
was above the figures of any of the In
