American People Heavy Consumers of

In the United States at something over

trees yield more than one hundred

all these apples are consumed it
home, for In years of full crop more
than three million bushels go abroad.
Yet, the apples kept at home are more
than two bushels for every adult, and
child. We are a nation of apple-eaters.

a good part of all these apples are
