FRIDAY , SEPTEMBER 10, 1909 - THE DAILY SOLIPHONE NO. 288

STILL THE EXHIBTS COME

WILL ARNOLD SENDS IN SOME CORN THAT CAME FROM LAND WORKED 35 YEARS STRAIGHT.

WILL NEWBERRY , WHOSE FARM IS 7 MILES WEST OF PARAGOULD , SENDS IN TWO EXHIBTS OF CORN FOR THE FAIRS THIS FALL. ONE VARIETY IS THE OLD TUCKER AND OTHER IS CALLED THE FARMER'S INTEREST. EACH OF THESE WILL PRODUCE 50 BUSHELS TO THE ACRE.

W.A. ARNOLD BROUGHT THE SPECIMENS IN AND SAID THAT BOTH CROPS WERE RAISED ON LAND THAT HAS BEEN IN CONSTANT CULTIVATION FOR 35 YEARS . THE CORN IS AS FINE AS ANY THAT HAS YET BEEN RECEIVED AND IT FULLY VERIFIES THE CLAIM THAT NO SECTION OF THE STATE CAN PRODUCE BETTER FARM PRODUCTS THAN GREENE COUNTY .
