It would be advisable for all farmers selling scrap tobacco to any person other than warehouse men to demand that the license is sued by the Secretary of State be shown before the tobacco is sold. It will be a violation of the con tract to sell any tobacco and not have the pounds entered on the al lotment card, and unless a farmer has surplus poundage on his allot ment card, it will not, pay to Bell tobacco for less than 6c per pound. - Merchants Notice All merchants who are holding direct relief orders payable by the Rural Rehabilitation Corporation, are asked to mail the orders at once to Mr. Chatham C.

WHITEVILLE HAS SOLD 15 MlillGN POUNDS Whltevllle the Border Belt's "Money Market" continued its un- hmlrnn m tl nf TinUTPAQa lflt week. Even though the weather man loosed a veritable flood, mak ing . it impsosble for anyone ex cept nearby growers to reach tlK' market, 2,601,676 pounds of the: Murray Byrd, of Faison, and Dep leaf was brought to this city. This uty Sheriffs Powell and Dale ot poundage added to previous sales Kenansville came upon a still as it brought the market's total for the ' was going full blast four and a season to 15,338,430 pounds, or half miles southwest of Faison more than 3,000.000 pounds more Monday. Five negroes were seen tobacco than wis sold during the . as the officers came upon the still, 1934 season and judging from the i however none were recognized and amount of the weed that is on the , they quickly disappeared before the market today, as this report is for- i officers could place them under ar warded, at least 2,500,000 pounds I rest. Besides the 250 gallon still, 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 prices. o Meeting At Hebron' Presbyterian Church : Special Revival services will be gin at Hebron Presbyterian church Monday evening at 7:30, Rev.
