IMAGINE a smoker finding out
for the first time what a good
smoke the OWL is.
First he finds it a mellow, fra
grant smoke. Then a free-drawing,
even -burning smoke. That's
a good deal to find us a nickel cigar.
Rut bpst of all is the uniformity
of tHe OWL, safeguarded by a
million dollars' worth of slowly
curing leaf, held in reserve. Be
cause the OWL is a uniformly good
smoke, you always come back to
it with the same sense of satisfac
tion. Haven't you found it so?

Board of Control Puts
Off Action On Flax
The board of control held a short
session this morning. Secretary of
State Olcott was not present. The
meeting was held tor the purpose of
discussing the situation which has come
up through the complaint of flax
growers as to the decision of the board
to discard fields of flax in which weeds
predominate to an extent of fifty per
cent or more...s
Attorney General Brown on Saturday
gave nn opinion that the state oiay
break its contracts and refuse to pull,
tie and shock the flax if the board is
confident that the growers have failed
to give the crop proper attention. .
The opinion of the attorney general:
"I would advise you that if the
board is confident that the facts of the
case show that the grower has substan
tially failed through his own fault to
sow and tend "the flax with such ordi
nary skill and capacity as the usual
farmer would employ, so that the ob
ject of the contract would be defeated
or rendered unattainable, your board
would be justified in refusing to pull,
tie and shock the same, otherwise,
the board should proceed in accord
ance with the terms of the contract."
After some discussion of the mat
ter this morning, the board decided to
defer action until the receipt of a re
port from Superintendent Lrawiord,
who is now making an investigation
of the flax fields.
