To the Editor of The Journal: In the last issue of The Journal your UnionWlle correspondent asked about the cultivation of corn in dry weather and since the drought has been broken we will answer by saying a few things about l lie growing and cultivation of corn in general. To grow corn profit ably we need a soil high in humus content. The average soils in this section contain only about one and one-half per cent of humus and the average yield is about twenty bushels per acre. Whenever we find a farmer making forty bushels or corn per acre we find that he has attained this yield by Increasing the humus con tent or his aoil, preparing a deeper seed bed, fertilizing judiciously, and proper cultivation. Water is the most important element in the pro duction of crops. It requires about three hundred and fifty pounds of wa ter to produce a pound of dry mat ter in the corn plant on good laud and about five hundred pounds or wa ter produce a pound or dry matter ir the corn is grown on poor land. We see that poor soils requires more rain to make a crop than do rich soils. So at a glance, we see the im portance or improving our soils through the incorporation or organic matter. This can be most cheaplv done by putting on cover crops, such as rye, oats, crimson clover, bur clover and vetch, as winter cover wars was onlv $1.29.

Making two attempts in broad daylight to-day to lynch three negroes held In the Alamance county jail here, an angry mob of over fifteen hundred persons was held off by Sheriff C. B. Story of Alamance, and four deputy sheriffs until the machine gun company sent to Graham to-day from Durham, un der orders of Governor Bickett, ar rived to check further trouble. The mob was oultalked by Sheriff Story. The three negroes, William Lee and Jim Hazel, both of Burlington, and Arthur Veasey of Klon College, are being held in the Alamance jail on suspicion of having criminally hs- iiiulted a while woman, aged twenty- even, of IiMilinnlon, at the home of her husband there last night nt nine o'clock. Her husband, an electrician at :he power house there, had gone up to the li'lsiuess seel ion of Burling ton whi n a negro entered th" home, drew B pistol m the wile, who was alone v illi her little child, attacked her and made his escape. Upon her husband's return home, the alrtn was sounded and the search for Ihe negro continued .til right without result. Sheriff S'ory sent for bloodhounds at KalHtii. which arrived at Cra haui at six o'clock this morning. They Immediately picked up the trail and tinted it a few miles from Bmi ingloj at a ne.gvo house where Jim HaM 'and Arthur Veasey were ar rested at about seven o'clock this morning. The negro Lee was ar resied on suspicion as he seemed lo resemble the description given by the woman of her assailant. He was at rested near the Burlington hospital at the home of his father. He had been employed at the hospital. The negroes were taken before the woman this morning but she was un able to Identify positively any of Ihe three as her assailant. She Is in a rather serious condition and nervous ness lesultlng from the attack helped to make identification Impossible. Ily this time the mob was large ami at about twelve o'clock to-day made the first attempt to secure the negroes and lynch them. Sheriff Story told the mob that none of the neniocs had been Identified as tin miilty person and asked it to dis-iei-e. The mob left the Jail and made no further attempt until live o'clock this afternoon, when a second at lack was made, the mob beating on 'lie doors of the Jail. . Again SlieiiiT Story asked the mob to let the law take Its course, and the mob left again. It was a thoroughly aroiinsed col lect ion of men from Alamance. Iliii'tnrd and Orange counties. None 01 lite members of the mob wore niH-ki. .t six o'clock this afternoon lb Dni'i.iin company of militia arrived, aim t thlriy-flve men under the coi:i iiur..i of Captain Fowler, coming thiii'ivih the country, in trucks and Immediately went to Ihe jail to pre vent mob violence. By this time the ram was falling and the mob began to disperse. The city has quietd down after a day of turmoil and no further trouble is expected. It is the Intention of the authori ties to remove the negroes to the penitentiary at Raleigh fur safe keeping. The request for troops was made to Governor aboui two o'clock to-day by the coun ty com m issloners of Alamance county. The three negroes all deny any connection with the crime. They ran-e In age from about 22 to -years. for we pay for it twice when we get our winter feed by this method. Coker has found that the yield of corn is reduced twenty-five per cent on corn producing forty bushels ht acre. Lloyd in Mississippi found the loss less in some rases, but even higher than those of Coker in others. Duggar or Alabama says that the loss will be from three to five bushels per acre wheu Ihe blades are nulled, he also says, that leaves w ill equal about one-fourth Hie grain in weighr. and this agrees prelly closely with Coker. On a twenty bushel crop, estimated 011 this basis. Ihe weight of fodder. Idry leaves) obtained would be 2S(1 pounds, but if we allow an average or three hundred pounds per acre. at torty dollars per ton. ihe three hundred pounds or rodder is worth six dollars. At two dollars a bushel it would only require a loss or three bushels ot com per acre lo equal the entire value or ihe rodder obtained. In other words, the rodder Is paid for in lessened corn yields and then again in the labor cost expended in pull ing It. We should plan to save the entire corn crop by cutting and shocking when corn Is ripe. There are feed mills on the market that will grind the corn, stalk, and all. or the corn can be shredded. Farmers who have tractors will do Well to investigate these feed mills. There are some or them in use on farms In this couuty and they are a success when it comes to grinding anything in the way of roughage grown on ihe farm. One farmer reports to me that he has put awav four hundred bushels o. oats in the sheaf lo be ground, straw and all. on his mill for his livestock this winter. This farmer also says thai Lis mill will grind the whole corn plant, with ear on, and wrapped from bottom to top with velvet beans, with rapidity. They will grind corn in ihe ear and with the shuck' on. shelled corn, cotton .-eed. wheat n. oat :iliiiw and all kinds of folate. Tho ehl. in eliminate waste in feeding. According to all averages of prog ress of Ihe hull weevil into Pew ter ritory, says Franklin Sherman, State Knioniiilogist, Union county will l.e invaded late tiiis lull, but no damage will be done Ihis year. Most of these weevils will die out this winter und the county will be invaded In greater Torre in 1921, hut not in time to do material damage, ln 1922 the real lest of our preparedness to meet the foe will come. Every farmer ihnt not raising an abundance of food and food for family and livestock will have a mighty hard lime getting any. We had better start now preparing for grasses and clovers for forage and pastures, for corn, wheat, oats, pota toes, beans and peas, for food and feed. I.lme will help the grasses an clovers, peas and beans, and incident ally will help all other crops. Bet ter get your order in for lime now for you will not be able to get it later.
