Editor Times: Having seen so much
in print, and my friends generally
conversing so frequently about Mr.
Abe Sheppard's corn in response to an
invitation to come down and see, my
wife and myself visited this home
Saturday. I have seen lots of corn
fields in my day,but I can't recall one
that looked so promising as that one
acre cornfield he fertilized so lavishly.
His other corn is magnificent, but does
not compare with this.
Mr. Sheppard is also to be congratu
lated upon his cotton outlook. He has
a fine stand, it's free of grass, lots oi
it being head-high now, a number oi
bolls and still a fruiting. I observed

And hogs—the blooded red breed
Mr. Sheppard raises—are fat and fine,
and are worth $25.00 a pair right now.
Mr. Sheppard's farm is an ideal one,

growing crops thereon and enjoy the
old-time hospitality so prevalent in his
home. I believe he will bag and crib
the banner crop this season, and he
has always made good ones.
