Banker's Wife Grew Some Reel
Toma loci
The finest. tomatoes the writer of
this has seen in the state of Ore
gon came the other evening from
the garden of Mrs. and Mrs. A J
Moore, of north Twelfth street. 1
The three in a basket weighed
slightly more than one pound each,
and those come from one vine that
has produced more then forty of
similar size. Other tomato vines
in the same garden have produced
almost as prolifloally and the
garden as a whole has been the
wonder of manv visitors. Mrs.
Moore, to whom the banker gives
the credit for the excellence of the
garden, says that ten of her tomato
plants have produced twenty pound
of tomatoes each. Those tomatoes
are wundeifolly smooth and ronnd,
beautiful fruit of the vine, and
however great in size, palatable
to the last degree. Mrs. Moore
