WITH THE SICK
The condition of James "Jim" Davis who has been ill for many months at his home in Yellowbud is serious. Mr. Davis, before his retirement, was a grower of fine watermelons. Because his watermelon displays often took first prize at the Ohio State Fair, he was dubbed the "watermelon king" in this vicinity. [Scioto Gazette. August 23, 1937. Submitted by Carla Mascara]
