If you want to see your name in the paper, drop by their office with some delicious produce. From the August 24, 1922 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
Brings in Muskmelons.
The News force received a couple of nice muskmelons from the patch of C. E. Hall yesterday. Mr. Hall has about an acre of fine muskmelons this year, and they are doing well. He has a watermelon patch also, but the heavy dews and hot sun are causing them to burst before they ripen.
Mr. Hall and sons have brought muskmelons to town three times recently.
