WANTS FARMERS TO IAISE
I want teVVtre the farr ers of our
county to raise more toba co. Their
is so much more money in it than any
other crop we can raise.
Brother farmer you cm find one
acre of land on your farm that you
can make rich and plant it in tobacco
and it will brinjr you from $200 to
$100 in cash. There is hundreds of
acres in our county that will make
tobacco and it is as easy made as corn
and will bring you four times the
money that corn will. I ask you to
consider this and jrrow one acre. I
it is done. I have been raising tojbac-
co for 40 years and I think this so?
Krows it as good as any in the stat
Let us all put one acre in and do ou
best. I want to put four acres in t
bacco next year.
Your3 for a good crop,
