Wissler, Levi H. - 1881

The Tobacco Market-
The tobacco market continues active and without abatement.  Some of the buyers look at field purchases as being rather premature, and would not at first listen to such a way of doing business.  Now, however, they are beginning to see that unless they, too, enter the field they will be left behind and will not be able to procure any choice crops.

Our half-dozen or more buyers are all active and anxious to secure a certain share of this year’s growth and not a stone is left unturned to secure choice crops if they can be had.  Teller Bros. representative is out from morning till night and is making purchases right and left.  Fry Bros., who had discontinued for a week or so, are again out, besides a number of others.

The following are some of the crops sold in different parts of this township: Addison Lutz, one-half acre at 22, 8 and 3; Manelius Ressler, 3 acres at 12 round; Levi Heffner, 1 acre at 10 round; Silas Zell, 1 acre at 10 round; John Wolf, 1 acre at 10 round; Mrs. John Badegum, 1 acre at 10 round; Alphus Leib, 2 acres at 25, 10, 6 and 3; Frank G. Buch, 2 acres at 11 ½ round; Chas. Hemple, 1 ¼ acres at 20, 10 and 3; John Wolf, ½ acre at 12 round; Wm. Gable, 1 ½ acres at 30, 16, 8 and 3; David Buch and Daniel Bowman, 2 acres at 29, 10 and 3; Reuben Griosh, ½ acre at 15 round; Jos. Kryder, 7 ½ acres at 15; Dan’l Burkholder, -- acres at 27, 8, 5 and 3; Hiram Brubaker, -- acres at 30, 10, 8 and 3; Jacob Kauffman, 2 acres at 30, 12, 8 and 3; Urias Buch, 2 acres at 25, 8 and 3.

Menno M. Fry & Bro. have made the following purchases: Reuben Risser, 1 ¾ acres at 27, 10 and 3; Samuel Bingeman, 1 ½ acres at 30, 12, 6 and 3; Ben. Wissler, 2 acres at 25, 10 and 3; Levi H. Wissler, 1 acre at 24, 10 and 3; Jonas Wechter, 1 3/4 acres at 28, 10, 6 and 3; Levallan Edwards, 1/2 acre at 25, 12 1/2, 6 and 3; H. S. Enck, 1/2 acre at 25, 12 and 3; George Erhart, 1/4 acre at 25, 12 and 3; John H. Brubaker, 1/2 acre at 23, 10 and 3; Jonas Eberly, 1/2 acre at 25, 10 and 3; Henry Leed, 2 1/2 acres at 25, 10 and 3.
