I attended Sunday school at Davis
i About Cutting Tobacco.
| Mr Editor,
i Dear Sir:—Forty-eight years j
! ago I began the work of grow-!
| ing tobacco. After a few years I
' I decided, or rather discovered, !
| that there were certain days
; better than others for cutting to
i bacco in order for it to cure up !
, nicely and have a "heavy body" ;
! and be oily and "waxy."
To explain, I'll say that to
bacco has a sap just as a tree
and tobacco also has at intervals
an oily substance, which is its
natural possession. When the
sap, or water, rises ip tobacco
it pushes out the oil through the
pores of the leaves on the prin
ciple that water and oil won't
mix, and tobacco cut in this state
will be light and "chaffer,"
when cured. From the fact that
sap pushes the oil out of tobacco
is why it is so "gummy" at
certain times and barely stain
your hands at other times.
But cut tobacco when full of
oil and it will cure up nicely and
have a "heavy body" and be
oily and "waxy." When to
bacco is full of oil it cannot
evaporate as sap does in curing,
therefore the tobacco is com
pelled to be rich and heavy.
Farmers have experienced cut
ting tobacco one week and do
well with it and then again the
next week and off of the same
piece of ground and have al
together different luck. If any
of the farmers will write and
send a stamp for reply I'll be
pleased to write to them upon
