Milton, Delaware April 14, 1913
A carload of fule oil for the 2200 orchard stoves used on the chandler Farm, outside of Milton, has arrived and will be used should the weather become cold enough to damage the peach orchard, which is the most extensive in Sussex county. On nights that are expected to be cold enough to cause frost all the stoves will be lighted in order to avert damage to the peach buds on the trees.
