;' As a moans of creating interest in
soybeans a variety test was planted
last spring in the farm of Mr. C. G.
Thornburg, Cor.over, N. C. The ob
ject ;f this test was to compare
the yield and other merits of diM"
erent varieties' for this section,
These soybeans were all planted on
May 10th. The fertilizer used was
300 lbs. of 10 per cent acid and 100
lbs of cotton seed meal per acre. All
varieties were tested alike, and the
land was very uniform. No part
of the plants were cut for hay so
no definite information can be given
in regard to the comparison of hay
The Virginia produced 4.5 bush
els per acre, requiring 114 days to
The Hamberiandt prodied 28 f
bushels per acre requiring 120 d.iys
to mature.
The Hlack Eyebrow produced 21.7
bushels' per acre requiring 1 0-1 days
to mature.
The Mammoth Yellow produced K
bushels per acre, requiring 143 days
to mature. The Mammoth Yellow has
been the? most popular variety in
North Carolina for several years un
til the last few years. But this
variety -is very rapidly being replaced
by other varieties such as the Vir
ginian and Ilanvberlandt. Either of
these varieties will produce in most
cases more seed, make a much bet
ter quality of hay ab' the stems are
not so woody and will mature from
two to three weeks earlier.
The Mammoth Yellow will perhaps
make a larger growth, to be used
as a.-green manure crop, than the
other varieties But ranks very
low in seed production, and quality
of hay. The Mammoth Yellow also
ranks low as a variety for hog pasture.

The famous Danville (111.) district
began sending Mr. Cannon to con
gress in 137-J. Fifteen years ago Mr.
Cannon was heard to say, while in -a
reminiscent mood that Senator Cullom
and himself were the only lilino &' men
left of that old guard, who knew Ab
raham Lincoln; and Lincoln has been
dead nearly 57 years. Today Mr.
Cannon is the sole ' survivor of the
Illinois group that was in Lincoln's
nprinal foilowinc. He became state's
attorney for the 27th judicial district!

was in private life, and then began
the remarkable congressional career
which has not been continuous yet
has been virtually Mr, Cannon's1 sole
occupation for half a century.
Mr. Cannon's 50 years in and out ot
Washington mostly in i',orm a phe
nomenal experience in American pol
tci. It seems trite to say that the
house will not seem the same with
out him, yet that faintly expresses
the situation. For the eight years
of his iron speakership the House
was Mr. Cannon and Mr. Cannon was
the house. His dramatic fall had
elements of dignity that preserved
for him the respect of the country.
Few people can now remember the
name of his immediate predecessor in
the speaker's chair, yet no one who
reads the country's political history
will ever fail to recall Mr: Cannon as

with the purifying of ether as an an.es
