While that may be true, the carpenter

When to Cut and Shock the Corn.
We have had several letters about
when to cut and shock the corn. Many
of these indicate that our readers
have not read our statesments correct
ly. For instance, we are asked if
when the corn is cut before it is ma
ture it will not lose as much as when
the fodder is pulled, or if it will do ,
One of the reasons we advise to cut
and shock the corn, instead of pull
ing the fodder, is for the purpose of
getting our readers to wait until the
corn is mature before interfering with
it. Do not cut the corn until it is
mature. This is about ten days to
two weeks after the stage of develop
ment at which the fodder is usually
pulled. The corn should not be cut
and shocked until the shucks and the
blades below the ear have turned
brown. If cut as early as some peo
ple pull fodder this will reduce the
yield as much as pulling the fodder.
If ei.u too early, it will not lie as
good for seed, but we have never ad
vised cutting the corn until it is ma
The results of a test made at the
(Jeorgia Kxperiment Station indicate
that when corn is cut at the right
time and cured in the shock, as many
pounds of shelled corn are obtained
as when the plan's are not touched
until late in the fi ll. That is. the
corn cut and cured in the shock is1
equal or superior to that left on the
stalks from which the leaves have
been pulled, to take the weather until
the usual time of feathering in October
or November.?Aalelgh (N. C.) Pro

give its forty-second annual fair.
There are a gr<>at many features, as
the people of this state know, to the
annual fair. But chief among tlie.se
are the gathering In Columbia once a
year of the representative cltixena of
the State and the display of the best
products*of the State.

of this year's programme is that the

opportunity of seeing the exhibits anil

the grounds, where they have hereto
fore boon unable to do so. The
grouiids,-will be kept open on the even
Ings of November 1. 2, 3. until 11
o'clock at night! and the price will be
one-half of the usual admission. Of
course, the purpose is to make the
evening* worth while and have all of
tho midway special features in full.
The premiums are more general and
attractive than usual, and it will be
worth while for those intending to
make exhibits to communicate with
Mr. l>. P. ISflrd. secretary. Lexington,
S. <'.. for premium lists.
The races this year will be better
than ever before, hi d that means that
they will be unsurp. ssed in the South.
The racing com mi i e has arranged an
attractive list of purses. For the har
ness stakes over $4.000 has been of
fered, and the running events, now
quite i>opu!ar in this State, have 12
prizes at J100 each. The conditions
can be learned from the premium list.

shows secured through the efforts of
the officers the "Id midway will over
