Henderson, through the tobacco sea
son or certainly until the Christmas
holidays, would inaugurate a Trade
Day, preferably Wednesday of each
week, at which time they would, if
they saw fit, advertise and place on
sale certain bargains from their va
“Properly publicized and with suf
ficient individual advertising by the
merchants themselves it is the opinion
of those with whom the matter has
been discussed that it would very
greatly ad to the advantage of the
merchants and to the tocacco mar.
“If properly conducted, the advant
age to the merchants is obvious and
the advantage to the tobacco market
lies in the fact that farmers would
be prevailed on to bring their tobacco
to this market on Wednesdays in or
der to obtain advantage of the bar
gains which would be offered on each
Wednesday during the season. If the
farmers could be induced to bring
their tobacco here on Wednesday it
would relieve the usual block of the
market, which records show usually
takes place either on Fridays or on
Mondays, at which time it is neces
sary for some farmers, whose ori

bacco here, to take their loads else
where for sale because they could not

days of the week. Any trade which
would have resulted from the sale of
their tobacco on this market was lost
to the merchants, so the general idea
is to relieve this unfortunate condi

attractive day of sale than either of
the two other days.
“Quite naturally, before the 25-15
Club would attempt to give publicity
to such a movement on the part of
the merchants of Henderson, it is
very nece sary that an expression be
obtained from those merchants who
have so generously contributed to and
co.operated with this movement, and
