and years, and what is equally to
the point, the land bas advanced
too. Sensible men say thal Wake
lands have appreciated l" percent,
in value in eighteen months.
Verterduy a farmer, a young man
named Hunt, was here. The past
season he raised on three acte- of
land in Greenville County, tobacco
which he sold in open market for
#1,7110. Negro grower- of the weed
