Hoaded by tho Chamber of Commorce

with It. Of cours'o business line not
been bad but thoro has not bocn the

Gregg Bros, havo a reputation for
having raised more melons this year
than any other farmers near here.
Yesterday one of tho boys said thoy
had disposed of their entire crop and
that whllo tho price was not as good
as thoy havo. been getting for them,
there was a ready sale. Ho estimated
that they had disposed of twenty
thousand melons during tho season.
This includes watermelons, musk
melons and cantaloupes.
