—Tobacco is tiic latest "necessity" that has
rapidly advanced in price, ami consumers ot
the "weed" SP' confronted with the prospect
oi having to pay luofcior their tobacco plugs
aud tobies, else receive a lets qunuljty for the
same money. Last year the tobacco crop
was very large and instead of the planters
realizing 20 ceuts a pound for their crop the
market dropped to 2 cents. By general
agreement they planted but a third of a crop
Ibis year, ami the natural consequence is
that speculators as well as dealers have been
stocking up, with a view to running np
prices or cuttiug down quantities in the
eourse of a few months—that is, when Ihe
old erop shall have been exhausted.

or to sell or ship to others any of the fruit
thereof; and the tree so infected Khali be
subjected to destruction as a public nuisance.
It provides that the supervisor of any town
when; tl;ejre is good reason to believe that
the dineasa ciaiju shall appoint
three freeholders, who shall imiiiediaMy ex
amine the suspected tree or fruit, and if they
shall Hud It diseased, order the owner to de
stroy it within ten days. If he does not
obey he jis liable to a fine or imprisonment,
or l>oth, as it becomes the Commissioners'
duty to tiled the destruction at the cost of
the town, which is given a right of action
against the delinquent to recover the amount
of it a;i(l the Commissioners' fees.
