J. C. Hahn Raises Mammoth Pumpkins J. C. Hahn, with the assistance of his son William, raised some pie pumpkins this year that for size hold the world's record. This week the pumpkins were cut from the vines on Mr. Hahn's lots south of the Commercial House and the dray was secured to haul them over to the cellar. Six made a wagon load. When placed on the scales the largest weight 127 pounds and the next 110. The entire crop are of extraordinary size. No one seems to know the exact name of the variety or where it originated. The seed from which these pumpkins were raised was obtained from one which John Gaber brought in last fall. Mr. Gaber's pumpkin weighted 104 pounds, and was raised from seed obtained from relatives.
