Continuing the mythical contest for the longest-stemmed flowers, Mrs. G.A. Briner of Wagner creek, sent to the Mail Tribune office 11 narcissis [sic] blooms with stems all measuring more than 28½ inches. The longest was 31¾ inches. Also on display were several variegated tulips with the longest stem measuring 37½ inches.
