ord For AH Markets
(Sam t>. Bundy, Supervisor)
The Fannville Tobacco Market is
daily moving nearer its goal of SO,
000,000 pounds for the marketing
season. By Wednesday of this week
the market had sold 22,682,892
pounds for a season average of $53.48
per hundred. It is estimated that j
Friday's sales will put the Farmville
market approximately 23,750,000 or
about 6,000,000 pounds away from I
Many observers predict that the j
market will not only reach the goal
of 30,000,000 but will go beyond that
figure. This is because many tobac
co growers are selling here for the
first time due to the orderly manner
In marketing the golden weed and due
to the fact that the local market is
surpassing other surrounding mar
kets in the daily averages.
On Monday of this week, 682,048
pounds of tobacco brought $385,713.
11 for an official Svrage of $61.03
per hundred. This is the highest aver
age made on this or any other auu-ket
during this season. Tuesday's sales
amounted to 621,384 pounds for
$365,732.63 for an average of $59.00
per hundred and Wednesday's sales
amounted to 581,974 pounds for
$885,072.36 for an average of $57.57
per hundred. The entire market
averaged $58.13 per hundred last
week and for the first three days
this week the average was $59.30 per
The rush is over and many farmers
now sell tobacco on the same day
that it is put on tire floor. The many
new growers seen here each day are
an indication of the fact that the
local market is steadily gairrfng favor
with those who have heard of its fine
reputation of being the "Steadiest
Market in the State."

beets, carrots, rutabegas and turnips.
Leave them in the ground until heavy
frost, even after the tope have died
down, but of course remove them be
