Louisburg's three big tobacco
warehouses have been put in ship
shape for tihe big opening of the
1938 marketing season on next
Tuesday, when all the warehouse
men and attaches are expecting
one of the biggest sales in many
years and at high prices. Louis
burg made the enviable reputa
tion the past season of leading
the State in prices for the season's
average and it is fully determined
to do so again this year.
The warehousemen inform the
TIMES that there will be buyers
representing practically all the to
bacco companies on the opening
sale and will continue on tihe mar
ket throughout the season. They
have all completed the forces and
have ample help to see that all
tobaccos are properly handled and
placed upon the floor and their
office forces are prepared to get
tihe checks out as ?ast as the sales
are made. Every precaution has
been taken to guard against block
sales this year and the ware
housemen feel that with the new

block sales in Loulsburg.
The houses are assuring you
that If you bring your tobacco to
Louisburg you will be able to go
back home that night and fully
satisfied with your sales.
Attention is called to t'he three
big advertisements in this issue of
the Planters, the Union and the
8outhside Warehouses, inviting
you to call and sell with tthem.
Also many of our merchants are

The Chamber of Commerce and
the Kiwanis Club, together with
all citizens are joining in an ef
fort to make your visit to the
Louisburg Market this year more
pleasant and more profitable than
ever before. The town has just
passed an ordinance to relieve the
traffic situation in the tobacco
section by limiting the parking of
car, which has been " bringing
about a crowded condition.
Many new men will be on the
Market this year bringing their
tobacco and the tobacco of their
friends here for the better sales
and it will afford you an opportu
nity of mingling with old friends
on the Louisburg Market that
sells tobacco highest in the State.

The greatest preparation that
has taken place in a number of
years is being pub over lor the

The (arm people in the County
are taking unusual interest in ex
hibits this year and numbers of
people have called up in regard bo
preparing exhibits and booths.
The premium list is off the press
and has been mailed to thousands
of residents in Franklin and ad
Joining counties, in addition to the
same list which appears in this
issue of The Franklin Times
The list has been compared witih
that of other counties and it com
pares most favorably with any in
the State. There are_-money premi
ums for everything~made or rais
ed on a farm and for hundreds of
other products that are home
made. The farm people have every
year benefited hundreds of dollars
by the County Fair, and for twen
ty-three years they have shown
their interest in the Fair by one
hundred per cent cooperation
which has made it one of the best
little Fairs held in any county in
The County Fair is truly a week
of enjoyment of a high type educa
tional value, and noti only is it
Franklin County's play week, but
it brings thousands of dollars into
the^County each year. We all do
not have the same ideas as to
work or pleasure, and this is prov
en by the Miousauds of people who
attend circuses, fairs and carniv
als each year, and it is thoroughly
understood that if someone doesn't
afford the amusement of this type
for the people of Franklin County
to enjoy these things at home, they
will go to other counties to find
what they want. Hundreds of dol
lars are paid out in the County,
nob only for premiums but for la
bor as each year from seventy
five to one hundred twenty-five
people are employed to help in
building and operating the County
The amusements this year will
probably exceed any which have
been seen in any county In the
state, as the World's Exposition
Shows, playing the midway, will
bring 14 major rides and 16 in
teresting shows to grace the mid
way, which will make, without
doubt, the largest and most at
tractive midway on any county
fairground this year. A number of
the shows which will be seen on
the midway were brought direct
from Chicago's Century of Pro
gress, and there will be others of
English origin which will be. most
The management of the Fair As
sociation has secured the Nation
al Kevue, consisting of a number
of young and beautiful girls, who
will appear in ensemble and speci
al acts before the grandstand. This
Revue is booked direct from New
York and will appear at our Fair
.each night at nine o'clock.
The Fair will open Monday
night, September ldtlr'and con
tinue through the entire week
with Wednesday as a half holiday
for school children, and all white
children in the County will be
admitted free between the hours
of nine and two. The children en
joy the Fair more than everyone
else put together, and special ef
fort has been made to have every
thing clean and interesting for
them on this special day.. Septem
ber 24, Saturday, will be school
day for colored children, and all
children in the school parade will
be admitted free.
Everybody is getting the Fair
fever, and you hear the Fair talk
ed about at every turn. The larg
est crowd ever to be seen at a
County Fair in Franklin County
is expected this year, and the date
has bee# moved up so as to Insure
pleasant weather. The Franklin
County Fair Is our county holiday
and everybody, young an dold,
feels younger while enjoying it.
