ORANGES GROWN IN OUR
01 COUNTY OF CASS
Mrs. (ieorgia Creamer presented
the editor of the Journal with an
orange plucked from a tree
planted seventeen years ago on
their home place, near Murray.
This tree has been bearing fruit
for several years, and this year in
a greater quant'ty than ever be
fore. Seventeen years ago Mrs.
Creamer planted a small twig, you
might say, and today she can boast
of quite an orange tree. The
specimen she brought to Ibis
otlice has the color of those sweet,
delicious oranges that come from
Florida. We haven't lasted il yel,
but are keeping il to show our
friends that Nebraska climate is
adapted even to the growing of
oranges, as well as all kinds of
other fruit. Accept our thanks,
