Martin Lacks Industries
r" The people of Martin County
g are «mong the noblest and best to
be found in the state or anywhere
* else- ''Tbev have shown them
a:lves the equal, if not the superior
I among those with whom they
have come in contact.
Their sons and daughters who
have left bur borders, and taken
up their abode in other rections
have always taken a high stand in
life, and have by their wisdom and
courage reflected great honor upon
the grand old county. .
They have, as a whole, always
L., stood for what _was. right, wher
ever they have been found.
And as for energy and ability,
they have always been found in the
fore front, moulding and shaping
sentiment for what is noblest and
best in lifet' In tlieii homes and in
their home life, they are a genial
and obliging people, ever looking
to the interest of their neighbor*
_> They liavtf for the past few year*
made as uiucli progress in the
> development and improvement o(
their farms as any people in the
state. They have by bettfr fertiliz

their lauds mu£li more valuable.
Our business men have al ways l>een
among the very best, aud have had
much to do with the present state
of progress to be found in the
county, which includs all lines of
industry. But not withstanding
all these, inherent qualities, which
tend to make any people great,
our people seem to s be slow in
launching out into new lyies.
They-seem to be content tp be
the producers of raw materials,
leaving the lAanufaciuring of those
materials into more useful and
valuable shapes to other hands.
They must have forgotten Ihe old
adage, that those who produce the
v raw materials only, must tver be
to the manufacturers of those
materials, "The hewers of wood
and the drawers of>y*ter."
Our county is a large producer
both of cotton and peanuts, aud
there is neither a cotton mill nor a
peanut factpry.to lie found in the
county, which «liows plainly that
the spirit of manufacturing is very
low with us.
Now the state manufactures six
or seven hundred thousand bales of
cotton yearjv, fuUy as much as It
produces 011 its. funns; and this is
proof positive tfiat our county is
far behind others in this great line
of progress. ,\Ve must not wait

FLUE CURING IMPROVES TOBACCO LIKE
ROASTING IMPROVES GREEN COFFEE
Flu* Curing Develops the Stimulating Aroma ami Taala
Found IN Schnapps thai Baßsflss Tobacco Hangar
There are'three ways used by far
mers for curing and preparing theft
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
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 coffe# is made fragrant and
stimulating by the roasting process.
Only choice selections of this ripe,
juicy flue cured leaf, grown in the .
famous Piedmont country, where the
best tobacco grows, are used in
Schnapps and other Reynolds' brands 1

Hundreds of imitation brands are
on sale that look like Schnapps; the
outside of tlje imitation plugs of to
bacco is flue cured, but the inside is
filled with cheap, flimsy, heavily
sweetened air cured tobacco; one |
chew of Schnapps will satisfy tobacco
hunger longer than two chews of
such tobacco. ~
Expert tests prove that this - flue
cured tobacco, grown in the famous
Piedmont region, requires and takes
less sweetening than any other kind,
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
. satisfying effect on chewers. If the
