were present, lnere was a re

This was followed by one of the
finest dinners ever put on a table
at Parks school house. There
was plenty for all. At 1:80 Z. A.
Kluttz, the principal, and W. H.
Earnhardt, assistant, sent up two
balloons, which were a curiosity
to many present. Tfce last and
most interesting thing was a game
of ball between the Parks and the
Faith Academy boys, and the
Parks boys were again successful
There were but three innings
played, when the Faith boys see
ing they were going to be beaten,
quit playing. The score stood 10
to 5 in favor of the Parks boys.
The excuse ofjhe Faith boys for
quitting was that the ball was not
fit to play with. It is generally
known that when the' Faith boys
get beat they have some excuse,
and a poor excuse is-better than

The largely increased demand for Sun Cured
tobacco, created and sustained by the distinctive
quality oi the original Reynolds' Sun Cured tobacco,
has encouraged other manufacturers to place on the
market imitation brands and tags which are made to
look so near like the genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured
that unsuspecting chewers and dealers receive the
imitations under the belief that they are getting the
genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured tobacco.
Look close and see that the letters on the tag
spell R-e-y-n-o-l-d-s Sun Cured, and you cannot
be deceived in getdng what you ask for and want,
-the best value for your money that can be produced
from the genuine Sun Cured tobacco, grown where
