Notes or transcript:  “One of our local market gardeners is said to have conceived an ingenious way of protecting the melons in his patch. Every melon is connected by wire with a battery and a cow bell in his kitchen, and when a bad boy attempts to steal a melon the cow bell sounds the alarm. Eternal vigilance is the price of watermelons. – B. J. Post.”
