The government, which gets mixed up in practically everything these days, has chewing tobacco on the bargain counter today. It's surplus stock ' stuff the army, navy and. marines bought bud didn't use. J. V. Morrow of the department of agriculture heads the tobacco sales. He already has peddled $5,-500,000 worth for US taxpayers, and has" another $2,500,000 to go. "The cigars and cigarets were easy," he told a reporter. "But chewing tobacco .

You can be sure that we are as sincerely anxious to see you rise to a higher level of living, as a farmer is to see his corn grow tall.

And after it wears out as money, they chew it, gimp, sheep dip and all. ...4. .. When the war ended the government still had some stick tobacco left. But Morrow found it easv to peddle. The manufacturers took it back, will freshen it up a little and sell it to the hardy South Sea Islanders, who doubtless will. rejoice.

After the prosecution had presented four witnesses the court found charges against the chief "frivolous and malicious with no facts or circumstances adduced to substantiate them."

Meat industry sources said fresh beef and pork could reach neighborhood butcher shops from two to five days after the animals are sold, depending on how far they have to be shipped! Thus, they added,' such major livestock market centers as Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, St. Paul and Indianapolis will have a fair supply of pork and some beef available at the retail level by Saturday.
