BEWARE
WATERMELON FLOOD
There's more watermelons in town today, than there’s been
in many a long year. But, BEWARE of what YOU BUY and
from WHOM you BUY. The passing trucker can guarantee
his melons and praise Its qualities to the sky, but does he
guarantee you can find him, if, when you cut your melon.
It's no good. Then, how about those melons cooled with
ice and water?? Melons absorb water, and being over
50 per cent water anyway, a melon loses its sweetness and
becomes soggy when made cold that way. We GUARANTEE
our melons to be chilled by REFRIGERATION and will
STAY COLD for hours after being removed from our cooler.
We GUARANTEE our melons to be GOOD and you can
have your MONEY BACK if its not good, or keep cntting
melons until you get one to suit yon, and you can always
find at—

NEW YORK COTTON
NEW YORK, July 11-W—Cotton
futures were strong in active deal
ings today with the July, 1947, de
livery reaching 39.49 cents a pound,
the highest price for futures since
1920.
The advance was influenced by
prospects of a tight cotton supply
next season and firmness in out
side markets. Heavy commission
house and trade buying along with
short covering readily absorbed
profit taking. The market at one
time was more than $3 above the
previous close with final prices lip
90 cents to $2.60 a bale.
Realizing sales had depressed
the market as much as $1.85 n
bale, in early dealing. Active in
quiries for textiles and the tight
ness situation o* cotton led mills
to buy futures aggressively for
protection of raw cotton inven
tories.
Futures closed 90 cents to $3.60
a bale higher than the previous
close.
