Schneider is very fond of tomatoes. Schneider has a friend in the country who raises "garden sass and i-ich." Sohneider had an invitation to visit his friend last week, and regale hiuiself on his favorite vegetable. His friend Peiffer bciug busy negotiating with a city produce dealer, on his arrival, Schneider thought he would take a stroll in the garden and see some of his favoritos in their pristine beauty. We will let him teil the rest of the story in his own language : 'Veil, Ivalksshustaliddlevhile roundt, ven I see some off dose dermarters vat vas so red und nice as I nefer did pee any more und I dinks I vill put mineself outside bout a gouple-adozen, shust to gif me a liddle abbetite for dinner.
