corn or the best peek of wheat,
but the money will be awarded
to the best yield per acre. The
yield per acre is the all impor
tant factor, and often makes the
difference between success arid
failure. This amount of money
will make it possible to offer a
priie worth" striving for and
worth winning, furthermore, the
man who don't win and tries is
benefitted by having tried.
A good many years ago Engf
land's average wheat yield , was
14.3 bushels per acre, now it
exceeds 30 bushels. How . have
they done this? Simply by study
ing, their conditions, growing
clover and cow peas, and buying
raw rock phosphate from this
country. Germany has done
practically the same thing. It
is much easier for us than it was
for them, but we don't do it un
less we try. The same thing is
true of dairying and hog raising
and other lines of farming. Cape
county has made a good start
and she can take her place as the
foremost Missouri county if the
people say so.
