was weighed and found to total

No blame or reflection is attached
to this young farmer. Arch Odom.
The error was caused by the crude
way of judging it. The largest yield
this year was obtained by Marvin
Usher, whu got 188 bushels. His
crop will be fully inspected in a few
days. Young Odom planted his corn

citizens were assaulted or Insulted

WOHLD S RECORD NOT BROKEN'.
Wrong Method Pscd in Measuring
Marlboro Corn Yield.
Columbia, Nov. <J.?Mr. Ira W.
Williams returned this sfternoon
from Benn< ' ^ille. where he went to
Investigate t was said to ha\e
been the " I "'s record production
of corn by - i y Mr. Williams, w ho
is the I'rit i '*? farm demonstra
tlon agent here m ? 'e ;? sistement for
the press thi? (tftemoon which con?
siderably reduces the place of the
boy in the corn production field. In
substance, the r> port of Mr. Wil?
liams is that the t?oy is entitled to
come second in the list of Boy Corn
Club contestants. The error was
made in the method of measurement.
Mr. Williams*! statement is as fol?
lows:
"After carefullw investigating and
having the corn measured of the re?
ported 258 bushels per acre. I find
that the world's record has not been
broken, that the boy will be second,
so far as the reports now stand in
the yield from the Boys' Corn clubs
in the State. 1 will say. however,
that there was no intention on the
part of the boy 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.
The mistake occurred in the method
of measuring the corn.
"We do not accept any measure?
ments in regard to the greatest yield
in the State, except the absolute
weight of the corn. T think, how?
ever, that this production is the most
remarkable in the history of the
state's corn production, it is cer?
tainly more remarkable than the
Drake yield, if the reports as to how
the Drfilte yield was made are trie J
for In cost of productin it is by far
the bast for the large yields produced
and the methods are such that any
man could follow and expert the
most profitable results.
"In a few days, When the exact
amount is given out by the proper
authorities, a further statement In re?
gard to the way the crop was pro?
duced will also be made. 1 think it
necessary to say that the same in?
vestigation was made In regard to
the reported 2i's bushels as was ma !?
in this case, and the same metho i of
measurement applied, which proved
that the |2I bushels was absolutely
accurate and was produced on one
acre of ground."

for the Recorder Thursday in the inca

big harvest was reaped although it
was not a very rich one.
The ordinance against riding bicy?

many tip to plead guilty and to pay

plea was that the ordinance for

much and that the stret was not post?
