History of Corn Shows.
"Owing to the intense interest
shown in the South Atlantic States:
Corn exposition," said Mr. Hudson,
"to be held in Columbia, December;
5-8. a brief history of corn shows will
possibly be of interest. The first
corn show of which we have any rec
ord was held in the city of Chicago
just four years ago and owing to the
fact that very little was known of it;
or its ob,ject it was a failure. The
next year it was moved to Omaha and
at the same time expositions were
held in Iowa and Illinois. The bus
iness men had been educated by that*
time to the advantages of a corn
time to the advantages of a ccdrn
show and they contributed liberally
to its support. Educational features
had been added and everything dcne
to attract the man on the farm.. As
a result of this agitation there were
8,000 exhibitors at the Omaha show
alone last year and had the corn been
laid end to end it would have reach
ed a distance of 12 miles. Here corn
from all parts of this country was
brought into competition and the visi
tors were allowed the opportunity to
see for themselves the best type of
ear that could be produced. The edu
cational features consisted of ad
dresses every mort, afternoon and
evening by the leading corn growers
of the United States. These ad
dresses were attended by thousands
of farmers from all sections of our
country. The prizes at this show alone
amounted to over $20,000.
"The exposition managers," he
continued, "work hand in hand with
all corn growers' and corn breeders'
associations in all parts of the coun
try--in fact, the exposition has been
but a culmination of all the work
that these organizations have carried
"In the Middle West one does not
see the scrub or mongrel corn only in
the most unprogressive sections. Corn
is bred as pure and as scientifically
as the best lines of live stock. The
idea has been to secure well matured
and sound varieties of corn that will
:nake the best feed and produce the
highest yields per acre. These peo
ple have had to pioneer their way,
and. of course, have made many mis
takes. but in the end they have achiev
ed wonderful results. The exposition
has aroused the interest in corn grow
ing: it has brought the best minds to
gether and has educated the people
along the best lines. It is a well
known fact that the people who at
tend these expositions and make ex
hibits of corn are producing the high
est yields per acre. For along with
the desire to use better cultural meth
ods and better methods in improving
the fertility of the soil. Take. for
instance. the Corn Breeders' associa
tion of Illinois, whose m.?nbers aro
nmong rno strongest. best ar.d most
onthusiastic exhibitors at these ex
-'ositiers. where tho averag-e yield of

this Way expert corn judges who
judge corn exhibits at fairs and corn
shows ar- trained."
"Every sample of corn is scored by
a competent judge," continued Mr.
Hudson. "and the score attached to
the exhibit so that the exhibitor can
see wherein he failed. This is un
questio::ably one of the greatest ediu
cational features in connection with
the exposition. for it enables eery
exhibitor to take his exhibit and con
trast iz with the winner and see just
wherein he was weak. Some of the
main points of the score cards deal
with such points as average condition,
vitality and such other things of in
terest to the man growing corn. Any
one familiar with corn raising in this
State will knoNN that the question of

by our not knowing how to handle
corn for seed purposes. Then, too,
this will teach us how to judge the
corn we bLly. We have been imposed
upon every year to the extent of mil
lions of dollars by the Western far
mers shipping us damaged corn.
While, of course, we hope that within
a few years there will be no corn
shipped into our State, at the same
time it will be well for us 'to know
good corn when we see it.
"A feature of all of the great expo
sitions has been the display of farm
machinery. We can never hope to
take our place in the fore rank of
agricultural States until we learn to
use more labor-saving machin ery.

position is the outgrowth of the or
ganization of the South Carolina Corn
Breeders' association. This breeding
association was organized at the re
quest of A. G. Smith of the depart
ment of farm management of the
United States department of agricul
ture. Mr. Smith is a Western man
and coming here from the corn belt,
he was in a position to see
and appreciate our weakness in corn
breeding. When the breeders' asso
ciation was organized Commissioner
Watson suggested the idea of holding
the exposition and a committee was
requested to take it up with the Co
lumbia chamber of commerce, with
the result that it was formally launch
ed. The South Carolina legislature
was approached for assistance and
