The only available acre of land he had was at the foot of a hillside and had a wash across It. He hauled oaK leaves and put on the land and filled 1 I up the wash as best he could. As a result of his work he made 105 bushels of corn, won a one- horse wagon, a turning plow and $10.00. The following year Chester put into practice a system of crop rota tion by sowing the land to crimson clover, turning it' into the soil, and then growing a crop of peas. In 1918 this same acre was used j in the corn club and the yield was 87 bushels, the season being less fa vorable than in 1916. Last year another crop of cowpeas was grown and the vines turned under. More leaves were also ap plied and corn will be grown on the acre again this year. Chester is using Hickory King corn and says he is going after 100 bushels again this season. His work in building up this acre of land is very commendable, and the time Is soon coming when reclamation meth ods must be applied to largo areas of our present farm lands to check erosion from winter rains.

Tennessee is fast losing out as a wheat State is indicated by a recent report of the Bureau of Crop Esti mates. G. L. Morris, field agent for the bureau, states that the acreage to he harvested this year will be the smallest in almost fifty years. Un favorable fall cowing with, freezes and absence of snow covering during the winter is largely responsible for this condition. Present Indications are that only about one and one half bushels of wheat for each individual of the State will be harvested this year. The same conditions that affected the wheat crop have decreased the acreage of rye. The report indicates that the acreage of hay will also show a slight decline. Clover shows slight increase while grasses re main about the same. The decline in hay acreage will result from a falling off in soy bean ar.3 cov.pea production.
