Apples Are Beauties

Article taken from The Portsmouth Times, Saturday, August 17, 1912, p. 3.

William Flowers, who is superintendent of the Holcomb farm near Harrisonville, brought a peck of apples to William Maier Saturday morning that for symmetry and goodness cannot be beaten.  Mr. Flowers states that he will have at least 2,000 bushels of apples and expects them to command a good price.  He sprayed all his trees and will reap the benefit.  There was not the slightest speck in any of the apples he gave Mr. Maier, and he has become a convert to the spraying system.
