tory of the apple show," said H. O.

which produced so many high averages
or such a vast number of apples so
near perfection." .

that of all Spitzenbergs from' the
Rogue River Valley, with 981. This
year five cars exceeded that record by
a liberal margin, the highest, on Hood

sweepstakes, being 997, or only 3-1000
