Of the entire tobacco crop of 1,389.000.000 pounds In 1919, ^lie- cigar 1 tyfles constituted about one-sixth, and 'the chew- Ing, smoking, snuff and export types most of the remainder, according to -the bureau of crop estimate's, United States department of agriculture.. The cigar types are heavy producers per acre; the average for 1919 being "1,265 pounds, .while the. other, types had an nvprnge of 079- pounds'. Before 19,19, the average farm price of the cigar types of tobacco was always above'that of the''other types, as a whole, bnt In that year the extraordinary demand for tobacco other Hum'the -cigar classes.-and the Immensely .Increased' use of tobacco for cigarettes- raised the average farm price of the 'composite chewing, sniok; ing, snuff and export types to 41 .H cent's on December 1, or greatly above the price of 21.9 cents for cigar tobacco. Indeed, the latter class of to. bacco had a lower price than in either 1918-or 1917, not because of Increase of pro.ductlon, but-because of weaker e i demand..

Tlie evidence Is found for the most part in the Ohio and Delaware valleys. The rude instruments 'these men used in their hunting find homes have been found buried deep In gravel which is believed to date back to the close of the ice. age. -If this be the case men lived in America 10,000 or 15,000 years ago..

Natives Employ Curious Methods to Heal Wounds Inhabitants of the little mountain country of SIputenegro employ curious methods of medical treatment, according-to American: physicians who-" did there. The first thought of of the natives in healing ;\younds is to apply, chewing tobacco, -horsehair, or fresh rabbit a sore; with .the hair facing inside. Common ink is considered to be a sovereign remedy for burns. Cobwebs are used in Montene- •jro to stop bleeding sores or wounds. When a person 1 is bitten by. a do;:, thr favorite remedy is to pull off the .animal's ear and rub the.wound with it.
