Small Corn Yield Expected in York.
York.-While the York county cot
ton crop has shown marked improve
gnent of late en account of favorable
- weather conditions, the corn crop is
very poor and is causing much con
cern. A York man who has traveled
over the greater part of York county
especially the western half, said that
the prospect for corn production is the
poorest in many years and this opinion
is heard on every side.
Practically all the corn is very late
due to the fact that cotton had the
right of way after the cessation of the
rains last spring. For anything like a
good yield decidedly favorable weath
er conditions throughout the remain
4er of the growing season is essential.
What little early corn that can be
tend is suffering from the ravages of
On top of these handicaps, the acre
age in corn this year is smaller than
uisual, a fact that seems odd in the
light of the weevil menace to cotton.
Last fall when the weevil put in its
aperance here and the price of cot
tnwslow, there was much talk
about planting a big corn crop but
when the price of the staple improved
this sentiment waned. Evidently the
cotton lure is hard to shake off.
Other crops may arouse considerable
vocal enthusiasm but cotton is the
crop that comes in for heavy plant
iag, the farmers themselves admit.
As a consequence of adherence to
~e system of making other crops than
ittonl of only minor importance. many
'rk farmers will be fotrunate if they
escape buying cora in large quantities
next year. acecording to observers of
the situation. And if they have to
buy it with money from boll weevil
cotton, as will undoubtedly be the
case, they may find the corn more

York - .Twenty-five cents a pound
