Department of Agriculture, entitled Tobacco Curing. The Bulletin 39 or 16 by 32 feet, built of logs with a partition about the middle of thebuilding with a door in the center of the partition wall. One end of thisbuilding can be used for an ordering pit, or room, the north end for astripping room, with a window in north end. The ordering room canbe dug out 2 or 3 feet, and an open steam box placed across one endimmediately in front of the door on the south end opening into theordering room. This steam box can be used when the tobacco will notsoften up fast enough under natural conditions, or, if desired, this roomcan be built without excavating and depend entirely upon the steam boxfor ordering the tobacco. This box should extend all the way across theroom, so it can be fired from the outside. This ordering and strippingroom should be conveniently located, not too far from the packing house.. Fig. 11.

There will be the trashy lugs,clean lugs, leaf and tips, as they are taken from the bottom, and then onto the top of the plant. In the actual assortment of an entire curing anumber of secondary grades will be made, sometimes as many as eightor ten in all, based upon differences in color, texture, and body.
