"A view at Fruitland, Md., as cars and trucks from miles around arrived for the annual auction of wreaths. These are bid on by the load at from 12 to 16 cents per wreath. Wreath-making, for the most part, is a family affair, there being only a few factories manufacturing them."

"This tree, which was living when William Penn came to Pennsylvania in 1682, stands on the farm of Joseph Parker near Salisbury. Through the efforts of interested citizens and Mr. Parker, it is being preserved and has been fitted with a marker."
