Popper's Corn Contest
Will again take Place at Versailles Street Carnival. Surely will be the
Greatest in the History of Morgan County.
The corn crop of 1906 is one of the greatest in the history of Morgan County. In the years of 1897, 1N99,
1899 and 1905, we had what we could call at that time, considering everything, successful Corn Shows. This
year surely ought to be the banner year of them all. The corn raisers are again called upon to show what they
have done this year, and will again be rewarded by receiving
