Article title:  Well Preserved

Notes or transcript:  “Wesley Yetter has in his possession a pumpkin which he got at the Punkin Show last fall, and it is in as good condition today, apparently, as it was when taken from the vine almost nine months ago. This is remarkable in as much as pumpkins are not supposed to keep for any great length of time. Mr. Yetter may keep the pumpkin until next fall and enter it at the Punkin Show. If age works on pumpkins as it does with liquors, he is almost certain to capture first prize.”
