WHITEVILLE HAS SOLD

more tobacco will be sold this week
giving Whiteville a grand total of
18,000,000 pounds by September
20th. While Whiteville's business
men and tobacconists set 20,000,000
pounds as a goal for this season
very few of these men thought it
would be possible for the market
to make such an unheard of in
crease, however, it looks now as if
this figure will be reached before
the market closes. Should 20,000,
000 pounds be sold here this year
the Whiteville market will make
the greatest gain in Its history
and It will have made a record that
will probably remain unbroken.
Not only has the Whittville mar
ket set a record for poundage this
season. It has set a record for high
prices. .. . high prices that have
never varied since the market's
opening and the fact that the aver
age price for the market's sales
through Friday of last week was
only $1.90 per hundred less than
the average price for the tobacco
sold during the same period last
year substantiates this statement.
It is hard to place faith in the re
ports of low prices and dissatisfac
tion in Whiteville, however, it is
not sol hard to understand. In
Whiteville a tobacco grower will
find six sets of warehousemen who
come to this market from other
belts . . . Warehousemen who are
leaders on their respective mark
ets, and warehousemen who are out
standing in the tobacco ' world.
These men all know tobacco, and !
they know how to sell it for high
