To Begin Canning Tomatoes

The Dover Packing Company will make a run on tomatoes one day this week - probably Friday.

The summer drouth held back the tomato crop, but the late rains have brought out the vines and though late there will be a very nice run of tomatoes for the factory.

It is expected that there will be enough tomatoes to put up about 2,500 cases, or 60,000 cans.  This is much less than the company expected to can, but much more than the early part of the season indicated.
