CORN CROP TO BE BIG.
Despite Drouth Scott County Will
Gather Big Yield.
Joe Wilson, whose home is in the
Cape, but who is known as one of
Scott county's most progressive farm
ers, says that the recent rains have
insured a bumper corn crop on his
farm, which is located near Com
merce. "My early corn will average at least
35 bushels to the acre, 'said Mr. Wil
son yesterday,' and I will gather from
45 to 50 bushels to the acre on my
late corn. A neighbor, whose farm
adjoins mine, has a field near me of
the best corn I have seen this year.
The best of it will make eighty bush
els to the acre.
"My crop was injured, of course, by
the long drought, but it is by no
means a failure. I planted my early
corn May 17, or thirteen days after
the last rain. My corn had been plant
edover one hundred days before we
got a rain.
"My late corn was planted June 4.
It is now in splendid condition, and
the yield may exceed my expectations.
But in spite of the dry weather, I
have already cut my alfalfa three
times and will get another crop this
season. For the four cuttings it will
average five tons to the acre. It is
worth $20 a ton, which shows that we
farmers are not losing money after
"One field of cow peas produced an
average of a ton and a half of cow
pea hay and from ten to eighteen
bushels of peas to the acre. The hay
or straw is worth $12 a ton and the
peas about $2.50 per bushel.
"Wheat and oats were good every
where. And taken on the whole, the
farmers have done very well, despite
the fact that some newspapers have
killed all of the crops several times
