tobacco farmers of this section last
week as result of thy 'ales, which
were the heaviest of the season and
which brought Danville's record to
ovei 4,..'ifiii.eiin pounds since Septem

the large ?|uantit> of inferior to
bacco brought lu're. some of this be
ing tl.. "scrapings" of sotne farmer?,
who have finished selling tlieir crop.
The precise figures are not avail
able- at present owing to the fact
that warehousemen and their staffs
have been hard-pressed meeting the
glut, but an approximation shows
that 3.474.7S7 pounds of leaf was mar
keted between .Monday and Saturday
for SS34.347.75, or an average of
S-O.'J. Nearly a.Oi'O.OOO pounds were
sold lam week, at an average o t

farmers to close up the season as
rapidly as possible and while prices
for the better grades are at the high

with good marketing; weather, ex

It is anticipated that from now
