Shelby County Indiana
The Shelby Republican
Sherman Havens, of Marion township, is home from Brown county where he has been looking after the peach crop.
Sherman went prepared to bring home a lot of peaches and he had them and they were unusually good.
He says he paid forty cents a bushel for them and in his opinion they can be bought in two weeks for twenty cents a bushel.
Some of his peach stories would do for a comic almanac.
