.lorry II. Moore. Is the champion
corn grower of South Carolina and
of tlie world.
He is I" years of age ami has pro
duced L'L's bushels and :'. pecks of corn
on one acre of land.
This is next to the highest yield of
corn ever produced and is only ex
ceeded by the Drake yield of 255
Jerry Moore is the son of a minis
ter, and the great yield was seemed
on the parsonage land.
This announcement was made by
Ira W, Williams, state agent of the
United states farm demonstration
Young Moore is a member Of the
Florence county Boys' Com club, lie
will win a number of prizes in the
county and state contests and at the
South Atlantic States Corn exposi
tion which is to be held in Columbia
from December 5 to S.
Some time ago It was reported j
thai a boy In Marlboro county bad
produced 258 bushels. This record'
was investigated by Ira YV. Williams1
and he found that there was a mis
take in measuring the corn. Tiie boy
only produced 17!? bushels, which is
far below the record of Jerry Moore.
The following announcement was'
made by Ira W. Williams:
'Alter Carefully investigating and'
having the corn measured of the re
ported 258 bushels per acre, I find
thai the world's record has not boon
broken, that the boy will be second so
far as the reports now aland in the
yield from the boys' corn clubs in
the Slate. I will say however, that
there was no intention on the part
of the boys or the committee or the
people of Marlboro county to give out,
any statement that was not absolutely
accurate, as all of them were anxious
that the facts be known. Tin? mistake
occurred In the method or measuring
the corn. We do not accept any
measurements in regard to the great
est yield in the state except the ab
solute weight of the corn. I think,
however, that this production is the
most remarkable in the history oi
the State's corn production. It Is
certainly more remarkable than the
Drake yield, if the reports as to how
the Drake yield was made are true;
for. in cost of production, it is by far
the least for the large yields produc
ed and the methods ?>?? such thai any
man could follow and expect the most
"There were several boys from this
neighborhood in the contest. This
boy la an orphan boy. his father hav
ing died when he was small. He has
two brothers about his age and size.
