Cane Proves Paying Crop.
On a farm over on tho south side,
foiiy acres 'was planted to cane last
spring with the object of securing
rough feed. In the fall, when tho crop
was ready to cut, tho owners conclud
ed to top the heads and save tho seed.
The forty acres yielded one hundred
tons of fodder and the owners have
been offered nineteen hundred dollars
for the seed. The cost of topping the
cane and threshing tho seed was about
$200, lea vim; the owners $1,700 net,
which amount they consider as "found"
as the cane was planted solely for feed.
