LAST WEEK'S SALES
WERE THE BEST YET
Some Thought Some Grades A j
Little Off, But Roxboro
Better Than $31.00
443,510 J.BS. ? $134,496.00
Notwithstanding sales were heavy I
and the offerings high in order the i
Roxbtfro market made an average cf |
more than $31.00 for everything on |
the floor, amounting: to 443,510 lbs., j
thfc banks paying out to the farmers
Some tt ought the market sagged a
uttl' n some srradfcs during the
week, but that must have been large- ?
ly ftnaginery, for the average shows
up; well, with ail other markets. We
have never seen the buyers more
anxious for tcba^co, and never have
v.e seen them more interested in cur
market. If any farmer thinks his
tobarco has been slighted all he has j
to do is to call the buyers attention ?
to the pMe. or piles, and soon every
thing is righted fand the farmer
goes his \*ay rejoicing.
The Hyco, Warehouse submits the '
folk\ving sales as an evidence of i
what Tobe and Ge:rge are doing: j
P. II. Briggs, 420 lbs for $180.70,
Mitchell & Paylor, 930 lbs. fcr ?
$375.18, average $40-34.
Howard & Wr.t 920 lbs. for $434.53, '
F. O. Clayton. 516 lbs. for $228.83,
a vera tee $44.34.
Bea*ley & Porterfield, 572 lbs. for !
$257.80, average $45.00.
Wrcnn & Kirby, 561 lbs. for $24,).- j'
84; average, $43.52.
Wagstaff & Lee, 1070 lbs. fcr !
$547.42, average $50.87.
The Winstead made the following
Criteher & H., 576 lbs. f:r $274.26,
Long & Lee, 1050 lbs... for ' $448.04, ?
Bill Williams, ?22 lbs. for $01.02, .
M. Adcock, 425 lbs. for $21 2.: 0,'
average $50,0 i.
Walker .& Thomas, 683 lbs. for
$372.84, average $54.19.
Ii S. Jordan. 770 lbs. for $326.88, i
It remained for th> Pioneer Wa re
h:use- to report the highest pile for')
the season. Mr. W. R. O'Briant, a
frranville -farmei\ sold a load with j
hem and his high pile brought $93.
This was a splendid sale, the low pile
bringing $10.00. i
Surely when tobacco average, from
$40.00 to $54.00 it can not bj. off |
much. Mark Twain said, "Be vir-;
tu'us and you'll be happy," and we
ay, "Sell your t bacco in Roxhoro 1
:.nd you'll get the highest price."
Little Raymond Russell of the j
