reMMHiilent How to Successfully
Cultivate Corn.
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

Graham, July IS. 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.

01 lite members of the mob wore

.t six o'clock this afternoon lb
Dni'i.iin company of militia arrived,

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

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
