Y 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 1134.496.00. 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, average $43.00.

The Winstead made the following plenditl sales: Criteher & H., 576 lbs. f:r $274.26, average $47.61. Long & Lee, 1050 lbs... for ' $448.04, ? average $42.67.

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.
