Early Melon

Early Melon

Mr. "Jack" Alverson, who lives a few miles north of Tremont, was here Friday of last week, June 26th, and said that he pulled a ripe water melon on Thursday of last week, and brought one Friday to Mr. Casey Gray who lives in Fulton Friday of last week. These are the first ripe melons we have heard of this year in this section.
