IMiE WY.UDOT tok0... L
This truly -singular production was first
introduced to the notice of the public in T
1853 by Mr. y. R. Thomas; of Waverley, s
lllinois, who receivid hine grains from tire
Wyandot Indians through a California emi
grant, which he planted in a sandy soil, and N
the product was fiity-eight full-grown ears.
in 1854 there were raised from twenty-five
grains ,planted on the 20th of Nay one T
hundrdadithirtytwo: ear. and from one- T
fouth of an acre thirty.two bushels and
three pecks. of shelled corn. It only receiv. o
ed the common cultivationt given to-other F.
kinds of corn.
This corn is ,represented to possess the
following peculiarities. We -copy from the
circular of M. Thomas:
"First, it requires but one grain to be
planted in each hill; more than one is use* r
less. . Second,'each grain yields from three S
to eight full grown stalks, equal in length .
and strength, being from nine to twelve feet
iigh, andproceed directly from the grain. most
Third each stalk bears from two to four ears suit
of a large and beautiful pearl-white corn, suits
the meal of. whichis equal in,-appearance to spad
tleur manufiactured from wheat. Each hill three
wiill yield from eight to tWenty ears. From Ile f
an.eqiul quantity of seed planted, it vill v;
produco double de quantity of ears' that Alt
eaacbe raised from any other kind of corn o
g rowgathdpatity f -fodder- 'which it nishi
bears 2 isnmpiese, and for stockfeed it is so
perior.toG all. othier varielies. The kernel is str (w
shaped similar- to the "yellow flint," the in~
grain -soit, twelve rowed, and small cob. sra~
Ear from twvelve to fifteen mehe-s long.
"If planted five feet apart each way, (anld
which is near enough,) it will require about
2,500 grains, or one quart of seed, per acre. Ci
Allowing each grain to produce but six ears, fI
(and my yield for the present year, 1855,
wvill average ten ears to the hill,) and the
produce of 2,500 hills is 15,000 ears, anid,
allowingY 120 ears to the bushel of corn, the mi
~result will be 125 bushels per acre. Uy os
actual measurement it has been conclusively dirty
proven that three of the average-sized ears candl
of the WVyandot corn will make one quart, k~j
or nnetysixears to the bushel, say eone hun- the la
dred cars, anid the result is changed from teh
125 to 150 bushels per acre, the latter being gi"'".4
