The fall of IMS marks the 3Mb
anniversary at the founding of the
Fsrmville Tobacco Market 'which is
Fsrmville's most important enterprise
and the greatest business asset
at the town and community.
From the year of its birth, there
has been a growing- demand for larger
warehouse space, the employment
of more men and the supplying of
more of the varied facilities adequate
to care for an increased volume of
sales. '
Five commodious and modern leaf
sales houses have replaced the two
cradle*- that rocked the infant market,
and such one of the 88 years
that has intervened has been a stepping
stone to a new record of
achievement, bringing * Justfced
pride to the warehousemen and citissns
at this community, and giving
it the attention of the tobacco world
The tobacco sales season in FtermvSSe
is starting with a great show
mi virility again this year with the
two tobacco leaf sales firms running
two houses each as in the past
composed at J. Y. Monk, Jr., J. C.
Carlton and Robert D. Bouse, is
a firm at experienced and popular
warehousemen with two houses, snd

trons has been proved by Ability and
experience. A tremendous volume of
favorable publicity comes /from the
farmer* themselves each year, which
is a prime factor in the pi i.ifli^an of
this market and its remarkable
growth may be traced'to the fact
that ita service* meet patron needs
in a way patrons like.
Each of the warehouses has larger
sales forces than' ever before and
has pledged its individual workers
this year to otter an unexcelled type
of service in the handling and sale of
the weed when it comes on the floor
and to extend patrons every courtesy
and every facility, WMili —<r
be employed in bringing the highest
prices for their product and in
providing comfort for tjiem and their
families while in Farmville.
Tobacconists in this section believe
the crop in Eastern North Carolina
to be very good with curings declared
excellent, and a brighter color
than usual, giving rise to an optimistic
outlook for better price*. They
have been in the fields at intervals
since housing began and have visited
the packhooses and grading rooms
to give their friendly advice and
counsel to the farmers regarding special
care in grading and handling1,
which always .coasts heavily in dollars
and cents when it is placed on
the warehouse floor, and makes it
possible for the warehouseman to demand
and get a better price for it an
the sale:
Warehouseman have made extensive
preparations for the- market
opening' and movement of the graded
tobacco towards the sales houses, remodeling,
renovating and clearing:
premises and floors, gatting ready
basis, and all is in readiness for the
chant of the auctioneer. v
The hundreds of thousands of dollars
to be loosed here among tobacco
growers within the next few weeks
will stimulate-the entire section and
the increase fat trade and collections
will put new spirit into all classes..
