The farmers will complete curing

because if he graSes his tobacco ami

The late opening will cause such i
rush on the markets that it will meai
a constant block, and the tobacco cm

If the warehouses could open twi
weeks earlier than the date now set
they will be able to absorb the rush
which is sure to occur unless the dati

We find no farmer who does no

Is Agricultural Department the (ioat?
It is very gratifying to know that
Commissioner Craham has reduced
the expenditures in his department
during the past year. If every
blanch of our State government has
saved in like proportion, it will mean
a very neat sum in the aggregate.
Yet we can hardly think that Will
ibe the case. No annoucement of a
great saving has yet been made In
any other department, such as the
legal, the legislative, the judicial, or
the executive.
Economy is such a fine word that

The published report does not show j
whether the saving is in departmental
salaries, office expense, or whether it
is an abridgment of service rendered.
If it comes from withholding service
that the farmer seriously needs, but
in his clamor for economy can beat j
along without,, then it is nothing to I
