In our last week’s issue we spoke of an apple that was raised by Tom Wage and which measured 14 inches. Since then this record has been beaten. W. D. Rose brought to our office two apples raised on his farm that measure 14 ½ and 14 ¾ inches respectively. Geo. Beaver has in his place of business one raised by Mike Grasser that has 15 inches to its credit.  But the largest apple we have ever seen was brought to our office, Wednesday morning by Jap Spry which has a circumference of exactly 16 inches.
