A detailed account of The National
Corn Exposition, which would be hard
to Improve upon, appeared in The
Progress!vc Farmer last weok, having
been written by Edgar B. Moore, a
progressiva farmer of North Carolina.
Mr. Moore says:
"This is the seventh annual expo
sition of its kl nd. Heretofore the
shows have been held in theWcst and
Northwest. The last one was given
in Columbus, Ohio, and the one prior
to that was given In Omaha, Neb.
This 1b the first time It has ever been
secured for the South. It is beyond
a doubt the biggest thing of its kind
over undertaken in any Soutl.orn
city. A $30,000 building was erected
on the ground of the show. There
are also several other adjacent build.
Ings that have been built for the
"It is costing Columbia many thous
and dollars to hold t o show. The
managers had to post a guranto of
$40,000 before It could be gotten for
the Southern States.
"Tho show is absolutely clean.
There Is not one word of advertising
allowed on the grounds. The ex
hibits aro shown without any adver
tising matter whatever on the stands.
Tho only printed 'matter is Informa
tion strickly. There Is not an exhibit
that Is not tho very best the State
raised. Eacli article was passed thru
the State Department of Agriculture
from each State that sent an exhibit.
With this department as a censor,
every thing Is of the best.
"Nebraska had an Interesting ex
hibit. It showed the amount of water
that is requiied to raise a stalk of
corn. On a hot day In August, one
stalk of corn will require one gallon
of water, while to produce a ton of
dry matter it will require 300 tons
"There are apples from almost
every State. Out of tho entire lot,
Virginia has the best display in my
Judgment. This State outstripped
Washington and Oregon. Virginia
raises the largest and handsomest
apples, but confidentially, North Car
olina has everything beat for finest
llavor of tho fruit.
"South Carolina and Wisconsin
havo a most interesting display of
scientifically selected seed corn for'
expert planting. Six grains are taken
from each ear chosen. These are
placed in a home-made germanatlng
tester. Each space is numbered and
the corn rack bearing the ear has a
corresponding number, so that a rec
ord is kept of each grain and car.
When the test is made, the germlnator
will show any ear that comes up to
less than 00 per cent on the test of
the grains. This Is a method that
any farmer can use to a great ad
vantage for raising good seed corn
for ths starting of a selected crop.
"Illinois has a most interesting ex
hibit, of farm co-operation in tho
community. There is a large plot
showing the farm, school, church,
laundry, bakery, lecture hall and test
plot. Thus Is shown to what an ad
vantage the entire community can
"North Carolina has a plot showing
a sloven farmer, who takes no care
of his premises and allows the place
to go to rack and ruin for want of
attention. On the :;ame plot Is shown
what can be done with practically no
expense. It looks like an entirely dif
ferent place. This should be a lesson
to every man who attended the show.
"Another plot that Is of Interest to
all who own land Is shown In the ter
raced miniature farm with running
water. One shows how badly land
washes and how quickly It becomes
worthless. On the opposite sids Is a
well terraced plot. This has not
washed at all, and Is far superior
land. An old Negro is nearby grind
ing about a bushel of corn a day on
the old-fashioned griat mill with two
"In one end of the hall is shown
every kind of the lasest and most im
proved machinery that is used on a
farm. The International Harvester
Company has one of the moBt com
plete exhibits that have ever been
shown In the South. Every kind of
sanitary and labor-saving machinery
that could be used on a farm and
"The milking machines are being
used eacli afternoon with great suc
cess. There is a daily exhibit of dip
ping cattle for the eradication of the
tick. Demonstrations are made of
cattle raised on tick-infested dis
tricts and districts where the pest
have been eradicated. In an adjacent
building a lecture 1? given each morn
ing from 10 to 12 o'clock and each
afternoon from 2 to 4 o'clock. There
arc hundreds of people in the place
each time. I had the pleasure of
hearing such well-known authorities
on agriculture and cattle as Poe,
Knapp, Wilson, Bgleston, Crosby,
T?te, Mitchell, Itlohards and Curtis.
This is in charge of the United States
Department of Agriculture and the
representatives from different States.
There Is also a splendid exhibit of
Jerseys, Holstein and other cattle.
The Ayrshire head Is in charge of an
oxpert from the Ayrshire Club of Ver
"Tho American Ayrshire Club
hold its annual meeting Wednesday
and Thursday. Fancy hogs from many
Statea were on exhibit On Thurs
day there was an auction of fine bred
hogs. About GO were sold for the
average price of $60 each. One sow
brought $300 from a man in Ohio.
The next meeting will be held in
"I witnessed the Judging of the
corn, which was one of the features
of the ?how. Short Brothers of In
diana won the best ten-ear display
prize and also the prize for the best
ear out of about 8,000 displayed. For
these winnings the men were awarded
the Kellogg Trophy, worth $1,000.
This prize would 'have gone to a man
from the same State, but ho fell
down. His display was white com.
There had been two grains knocked
out of the ear. These were stuck
' back by glue and the judges detected
it, and threw the ear out. Virginia
won tho Southern sweepstakes on
corn. Mr. Clore, the recognized corn
judge of the world, was head judge
at the show.
"There were 800 boys encamped
at the sihow as guests all of last week.
These boys were from the corn clubs
of Virginia. North and South Caro
lina. The boys had raised from '.14 to
181 bushels of corn to the acre.
About 300 girls wore present from
the girls* Tomato Canning Clubs of
the three States. Winthrop College
has a splendid exhibition in charge
of the studonts."
