High Price for Tobacco
Those farmers who planted to
bacco this year seem to have struck ;
it right tbis time For prices are
higher than for many years. No ,
farmer seems to be getting less than
SIOO per acre regardless of what '
kind of stuff he may have offered,
and many have received as high ns
$250 per acee.
Siuion E. Hardiscn has just sold
one priming from a 4 and acre
crop for $406. This tobacco was
sold on the Williamston market,
except one half of two grades
which were split and carried to
Rocky Mount for a test between
the two markets The Williams
ton s=)le in each case being higher
than Rocky Mount.
This refutes the statement that
is heard from some paid agent of
the large markets that the small
markets have lower limits than the
larger ones. It is well-known that
all buyers are furnished with same
prices at which to buy.
Mack Jenkins was born in Edge
combe County, North Carolina.
He departed this life in his seventy
third year. He was the son of
the late Joseph Jenkins and
belonged to one of the oldest
families in the State. He was
reared by pious parents and
this trsiuiug was manifest through
out his whole life. He was a gen
tleman of the old school, polite,
kind, and hospitable.
Tbe war between the States called
him in early manhood to serve his
country. He belonged to the
Edgecombe guards and always
loved his comrades in armas. It
afforded him much pleasure to
meet with them at their reunions.
He married Miss Sallie Moore,
of Martin County, Elder Cushing
Hassell, performing tbe ceremony.
This happv couple settled at Cone
toe, Edgecombe County. Here
tbey raised a family of bright, at
tractive children, Johnnie and Her-'
bert their two sons, and Lula,
Bettie, Mary and Ora their lovely
daughters, Lula and Bettie preced
ed their father to the grave.
Mr. Jenkins was blest with a
faithful compnnion whose life has
been beautiful. A kind friend.
■ loving wife and mother, she '
t shared the hospitality of her k om
t with her otu and her
friends in the most gr man
ner, and impressed %1 , with th(
sincerity of bc-r itie-jdsbip and th'
t devotion to her family.
This happy union lasted fifty on
years, twenty-six of which wer
spent in Edgecombe, twenty-five ii
Martin. After the marriage of al
of tbeir children thty moved bad
, to their old home near Conetoe
j Tbey were living here when Mr
Jenkins passed away to live wit!
God whntai he worshipped. H
e was buried in the Jenkins Cemeterj
, there to rest with bis kindred unti
t the Resurrection Day.
5 The old veteran, the kind friend,
the devoted husband and father
has gone to his eternal home. He
1 was a, member of the Metho
r dist Church. He met adversitv
bravely and bore his sufferings
[ cheerfully. He trusted in tbe
promises of God and these gave him
comfort aud hope. May his geutle
1 life a blessing to his childret
and grand children for many years
to come. His end was peace and
our loss was his eternal gain.
