Decatur County Produces the Prize Corn
The States of Missouri and Nebraska
are engaged in a little controversy as to
which State can produce the biggest
freak in the way of an ear of corn. A
recent issue of the St. Louis Republic
contains the following article illustrated
with a cut of the remarkable ear ol corn.
Missourians not only insist upon being
shown, but they are willing to show others
when occasion offers, says the KanRas City
Times. When any other Commonwealth of
the Union lays claim to pre-eminence in any
particular, before accepting its claim as valid
the inhabitants of Missouri insist upon posi
tive proof. It doesn't matter whether it is a
question of the annual output of mules or that
of the number of train robberies committed,
Missourians are skeptical, until they are
Nebraska claims to have produced a freak in
the agricultural line which has not been dupli
cated elsewhere It is nine ears of corn giown
within one husk, and is now on exhibition on
West Ninth street. But Missouri has seen
this Nebraska freak and gone it one belter.
Mr. Geo. E.Spraker, who has an office in the
Hall building, brought to tlie office of I he
'I imes yesterday a freak of nature in the corn
line which consists of ten perfect ears, u!l of
which grew within one husk. This '-mon
strosity in the freak line" in now on exhi
bition in a window of the counting-room of
the Times. It was, virtually, "made in Kan
sas City, U. S. A„" as it was grown upon Mr.
8prak r's farm in Jackson County, The freak
contest is up to Nebraska now.
But while Missouri and Nebraska feel
proud of nine and ten eared corn it re
mains for Grand Old Iowa to fro them
not one but two belter. We now have
on exhibition at THK RKPORTER ollice
twelve ears ol corn all grown in one
husk and fastened together. The curi
osity was raised on the farm of .Mr. ,1.
It. Orees, of Grand Hiver township.
Mr. Crees also brought us a curiosity in
the shape of an ear of yellow corn on
which there are five half rows of dark
We will wait for Missouri and Nebras
ka to equal Iowa and if necessary we
can stand the raise.
