Highest Ever Sold
On Wednesday, there was the
most phenomnal sale of tobacco in
regard to prices, which was ever
seen ou the Williamston market.
The election of Woodrow Wilson
bad given strength and tone to the
market, selling the product of the
farmers and not that of the trust.
The sale was made in the Dixie
Warehouse, and 20,000 lbs. were
offered and eagerly taken at the
highest prices ever given here.
Truly it was a "Woodrow Wilson
Tobacco Sale." *

Hon. H. $. Ward
Those who heard the speech of
Hon. H. S. Ward in the interest of
the candidacy of Judge Clark here
on Monday night, were unanimous
iu the opinion that it was the beat
and strongest speech delivered here
in a long time. Mr .Ward's earnest
manner combined with logical de
ductions, made the friends of Clark
f' el that he had a worthy advocate
and those who differed with him
thoroughly enjoyed every word he
said. Mr. Ward is well-known in
Martin County as a sound Demo
crat and one who neveT tails to lift
his voice in advocacy of Democra
tic principles. He is one of the
strong young tnen of the State.
His career since its beginning has
been upward, and his campaign
for Judge Clark a splendid display
of ripe knowledge and a firm con
viction of the righteousness of the
cause lie represented. He was
given the strictest attention here
and warm applause by the friends
of the other cuuoidates. He was
introduced by Hon H. W. Stubbs,

The weed trew with a rapidity that

time that the crop would be of poor
quality. But after being cured
and properly handled, it was placed
on the warehouse floors for the in
spection of the buyers and brought
price? before unheard of. People
realized more on three acres of
ijood weed than thev sold five-acre
crops for before. This was done
in all these Eastern markets, for in
this section only has the crop
amounted to much.
Another year will soon be on us,
and the preparation for the coming
crop will begin. It will pay to put
in a reasonable acreage in tobacco
for the next year. Diversity your
crop, Mr. Framer. Plant and plant
early, and give verV best service to

for money crops. The market here
is as good as can be found for aU
