Higher Tobacco Prices In South Carolina Reported Washington. Aug. SO—South Caro lina growers are getting materially higher prices for tobacco according to reports from the U. S. Department of Agriculture tobacco market news ser ▼tce. These reports are based on the analysis of sales at Darlington and Pamplico where Federal-State tobacco M‘ “ding service Is in operation. These Teports show not only a strong up ward trend in prices as the market ing gets under way. but also a distinct ly better range of prices than prevail ed a year ago. Many grades of cut ters and lugs are now selling for higher prices than were paid as long ago as 1929. although the present gen eral level is somewhat below that year. The opening sales in South Carolina on August 16th were disappointing to growers, but the subsequent improve ment has been rapid. The early of ferings consisted principally of prim ings and lugs. Lugs continue to re present nearly three-fourths of the to Occasional WSyprg CHAITKR 4 4 “A TITt.K IS aluaxs xery tarn."

T H E G U M P S—TH AT WAT " bacco on the market, but more tobac co on the straight side of the grade is appearing. There has been an Increase of cutters and leaf offered, confined mostly to fourth quality or lower. Prices so far reported range from 50 cents per hundred pounds for non descript tobacco to 157.00 for second quality lemon cutters. The present scale of prices varies In several important respects from that of 1931 when the average price for South Carolina type toba. 10.1 cents per pound, and from 1929 when the average was 16 cents per pound. In 1929 there appeared to be as strong a demand for heavy leaf grades and low grade lugs for the ex port trade, as for cutters and good quality lugs for cigarette purposes. Due largely to a marked change in the export situation since 1929, the em phasis in 1931 was laid upon cigarette grades, which in 1931 sold as high as in 1929 or higher, although prices for xxii.it xxas left of the night, but it was on lx four hours later that she reso ' lutely left him to his work ami re • turned to her own apartment tor a busy day of routine tasks, preparing ' her i lot lies for the following w eek , and art afternoon nap that refreshed I her for the evening, w hen Peter came to take her to a movie. It xx as entertainment which per mitted them to relax as that of the picxious evening had not done; ami although they were In a crowded theater, they might have been en tirely alone for the two hours in whixh thry sat close together in the darkness* and watched the tragedy l of human emotions on the screen '••\olve Into the miracle of happiness. Their own emotions had been tense i in the crisis of those make-believe lives. and it was with relief that they witnessed the Anal dissolution of all 1 strife ami misunderstanding. ! "They always live happy ever after." Petef laughed. "They should, after all that effort to deserve happiness. Not all stories ♦•ml happily, hut I like them a lot better when they do, don't \ou?" "I guess everyone does. Still, you romendier the tragedies longer. I guess that is why a few authors dare to leave them that way. True to life too. There are plenty of real tragedies in real life that never end in happiness.” “Yes, and the saddest ones arc tli* »s* • we never know a boat. Sudden death, murder, failure, are not the real tragedies. The worst ones are lived behind smiles and service, in silence. Hut we are going to have a happy ending," she added cheerfully , and confidently. ! "You know it." he affirmed quickly. “At least, we are going to give the .controllers of destiny a fair struggle. 1 think." I "Just imagine. Peter, you may he in Parts rn less than two months.” she reminded him wistfully. ! "I doubt it If I'm not. I’ll be 1 earning some real money, though.” ! Always, the human mind is forced to measure achievement in financial terms, because the world ruthlessly demands that “with the same meas ‘ ure that ye mete withal. It shall be \ measured to you again”. Each man I measures his neighbor's success by that standard, by which the world i judges him in return. It is no more . fair than the scale of civic justice, but it is irrevocable. Effort and tal ! ent are cast into the discard for the glittering display of possesaidh. ’ Camilla experienced her first meas ure of tangible achievement when she arrived at the office on Monday morn ing and Margaret Blame greeted her with; "Have you seen the new Issue of Weekly Review? Your Tiny Tots scamper all over the center double i spread.” She held out the magazine. A strange exultation rose up in Camilla's bre«gs and she seemed to soar In the air like a flying bird. Her ># v . x x HENDERSON, (N.C..V DAILY- DISPATCH TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1932 export grades were much lower. The heavy leaf grades, ror examples, in 1931 sold off about 21 per cent In the lemon colors as compared with 1929; the orange or medium colors Bold off about 33 per cent, while the ma hogany or dark leaf and low grade lugs were down 60 to 80 per cent. The most significant development of the present market is the improved de mand for export grades. A comparison of recent prices paid at Darlington and P&mpllco with seasonal average prices paid for similar grades in 1931 and 1929 shows that, among the cig arette grades, cutters sold 9 per cent above lrSl and 6 per cent above 1929; medium to good quality lugs sold 20 per cent above 1931 and 6 per cent above 1929. Among the non-cigarette grades which includes much of the export tobacco, orange leaf of medium to low quality sold 40 per cent above 1931. but 45 per cent below 1929; low grade lugs sold 69 per cent above 1931, although 40 per cent below 1929. The marked improvement in prices for export grades of flue-cured tobac co since last year Is. in the opinion of tobacco marketing specialists, one of the most encouraging aspects of the present market and appears to in dicate an Improvement in the foreign market. shining eyes just looked ut the droll little figures. She could not speak. "Well, aren't you thrilled to death to sec them for tlie first time In actual print"” demanded Margaret. She was secret ary to Mr, Weeks and held a profound respect for creative talent. "Os course, I am,” Camilla con fessed. "But what shall I do about it?” "Say. if that was my stuff. I'd make whoopee like an Indian- well. 1 don't knu.v what 1 would do!" "That's just about the way I feel. That is why 1 don’t do anything at Nil. They do look darling, don't they?" she added fondly, quite as if an tone else had created them and she was admiring them. "Do they! If that ad doesn't make the kids notice and demand Wheat hearts. nothing will!" "I hope you are right," Camilla said quietly. Again, that standard of sue cess confronted her. Her work xvould be praised or condemned according to the measure of its return measure in gold to her employers. Margaret's opinion did not make it good, nor the opinion of any critic. But if that fickle composite mind that is known as puhlic opinion, chose to favor her work xxith its passing approval, her work would then turn to gold for her employers and. in turn, gold for her anil her work would be good! t’aunlla telephoned to Peter dur ing her lunch hour. "Have you seen the new Weekly Review?" her voice sarg ’.xith evulw ranee. "No, I liaxen’t." "Well, rush out and get a copy and feast your eyes on that middle spread, dene b\ your very own wife.” "Will I! Don nat ulations, darling. I'm terribly proud of you. When do we eel* hi-oto?" "When you finish the figure. Then it xx ill be a double celebration for the famous Ansons." "How, famous?” lie laughed. "Just among ourselves, for awhile.” "Okay, honey. 1 won't lose a min ute getting that magazine, you can bet. I'll call xou back later, and tell you x\ hat l think of this new Anson artist." Pamilla accomplished little work that day. Every employe and cxecu fixe had to compliment and comment upon the initiation of the Tiny Tots into the world of affairs at large and advertising in particular. Each was optimistic regarding tfuir popularity, and Camilla walked again on winged feet xvith her head in the cloud 9 of hope. Her elation was not obvious. If possible, she was more quiet and re served than usual. For deep emotion is not expressed tn sounds and actions. It is lived within the heart and soul. Only superficial emotion manifests itself in violent demonstra tion. ✓TO BE CONTINUED J THE OLD HOME TOWN Hc|latert4 V 8 Meat Office By STANLEY r —; s xX I SAW FILING \ HOWS YoUf* > SHARPENS \ BUSINESS \ |ALU KINDS OF ( THESE DAVS J r ; i TOOLS ( UNCL-E- I /\ \ LAWN MOnNERS • s y' l fPfF Paii**E P • • J UNCLE BEN POTTER IS THE /r v Y&.
