 An effort is being made to rejuvenate the board of trade. For several months the board has been Inactive. There is plenty of work for the board to do in Delmar at this time. Industries are ripe to locate here, they will do so if the board gets on the job and holds out proper inducements.

The prospect Is good for an enormous lima bean crop in Delmar. Thousands of poles raised in the air all over town indicate that there has been a large planting.

C. W. Baker, the canning man, has almost obtained the required acreage of tomatoes for his Delmar plant. He wanted four hundred tons at $9 per ton.
