La6t season Pearl McRevnolds selected two exhibits (5 ears each) of the yellow corn and in the springtime planted it. There is about i of an acre of it. and he came to the office Tuesday and told us: "T never saw such corn grow out of the ground. It takes a six footer to reach lots ot it and great a deal of it has two large ears to the stalk and sucn grains I never saw on a cob. I honestly believe it will yield (i acres) 75 bushels. The Democrat has always given corn entered in its Cohn Show to the farmers promising to plant it for seed and the fore going is one of the many re sults. The CoitN Suow is not only an advertisement for this sec tion, but a better educator than 411 Corn Special Trains with fancy paid lectures abroad, be cause they are practical, visible results. Mr. McReynolds will save the corn raised this season from those ten ears and next year will have many acres of fine corn instead ot i of an acre.
