Grady-Outlaw Clan To Meet
At Outlaws Bridge Aug. 30
Carolina have been attracted to the
Whiteville market by the splendid
prices that are being paid during
toe first four marketing days of
the season. A million pounds was
sold last week and it is thought
that today's sales will bring the
market's poundage to the 2,000,000
mark. As for toe average price
that has been paid during these 4
days it Is impossible to state Just Blanchard
What K , IS. urnciai ngurea iui
Monday's sale have not been re
leased,' however, with the price on
all types of toe leaf advancing on
this day -it will probably be the
highest of any day of the season.
Whlteville's warehouses nave re
ported Individual averages ranging
all the way from $21.50 per hun
dred pounds up to $24.50. One
warehouse with a fairly represen
tative amount of the better tobac
cos on its floors reported an offi
cial average of $26.04 per hundred
pounds : for its entire days sale.
Monday's block will be sold off to
day and while sales will be reason
ably heavy during .ae balance of
toe week the heavy market period
Is not expected to begin untU next
Monday. The tobacconists of White
ville-feel that their prediction, of
20,000,000 pounds or more for this
season is a certainity how.' . . ' j
