L. Fitch, secretary of the association. These stamps were issued for two lots of 50 pounds, for use on potatoes in the lower Rio Grande valley of Texas, where as well as in Florida, the Warren potato act was in force before it was declared unconstitutional. The government called in all extra stamps but these some way were left behind and were obtained for Mrs. Sam Kennedy, wife of a leading potato grower of the state. The stamps were issued in all denominations necessary to cover the usual trade packages. Because of the government calling stamps in, they are likely to become exceedingly rare and valuable the country over. "So far as I know," Mr. Fitch said, "there are no others in the state, unless a few packages of stamped potatoes in the first days of shipment from the Brownsville and San Benito district came to Iowa and were saved by produce dealers and others."
