before seventy, would never have scon

ho lived to so great an age that ho re

his years of obscurity and neglect,

wpst in states such as Illinois, Indiana, Iowa
and Nebraska. But tho government experts
scouting around soon came to tho conclusion
that as good or better corn than America had
ever known could bo raised In proline quantity
In tho south if only the pcoplo south of Mason
nnd Dixon's lino could bo aroused to the pos
sibilities lying dormant at their doors.
Waking up these southern fnrmors to their
neglected opportunities is tho present work of
one of the most clliclent organizations in Unclo
Sam's agricultural corps. It was nothing short
of nn Inspiration that tho experte hit upon tho
plan of proving that their corn "fairy tales"
could como true through tho medium of tho
farmer boys of tho south. Tho lads wero enlisted
In this country wldo "demonstration work" nnd
46,000 of them have lately been giving their fa
thers object lessons right nt home. Whnt Is moro,
many of tho fathers have taken tho lessons to
heart and after seeing with their own oyeB wjiat
phenomenal yields can bo mado If corn bo cul
tivated as tho "book chnps" at tho agricultural
department prescrlbo they have becomo converts
1 to tho new Ideas and have nnnounced that hence
forth thoy will cultivate corn tho way their botib
havo been doing these prist fow months. It will
mean only a fraction moro tlmo and work and It
means production doubled or trebled or quad
rupled. Of course tho government gavo Instructions
to these lads as to how to till the soil In tho most
advantageous manner, but the enthusiasm which
resulted In corn harvests that havo made tho
whole world sit up nnd tnko notlco was Inspired
by competitive contests for tho winners In which
nil sorts of prizes wero offered township prlzeB,
vlllngo prizes, ciounty prizes, Btato prizes, and
goodness know? whnt, all In tho way of trophies
culminating In each Btato In a "grand prizo" In
tho form of a sightseeing trip to Washington, all
expenses paid, for ono boy. Of course, tho gov
ernment did not offer theso prizes. Unclo Sam
hns no money nvnllnblo for such purposes, but
I Mm dniinrtineiit of agriculture engineered tho
whole bchemo and got the public-spirited cltlzons
of more than a dozen states so Interested that
they put up tho prizes mentioned. Individuals
such ns bankers and merchants nnd orgnnlza
tlons such as boards of trado, county superin
tendents of education, chambers of commerce,
etc., contributed to tho list of prizes which In tho
grand total footed up to moro than J40.000
This wholo movement, nllko to other , similar
eduratlonal crusndes, has boen under tho direc
tion of the division of (armors' co-operative dem
onstration work of the department of agrlculturo
and tho field ofucors of this institution have
brought about systematic effort on tho part of
tho youthful com growers by organizing what
are known ns corn

township clubs all

who won tho biggest prizes paid very careful
attention to tho Instructions on this sroro nnd
plowed their acres from eight to sixteen Inches
deep and thoroughly pulverized their seed beds.
Even moro careful ndvlco Is given tho boya on
tho very vital subject of fertilization nnd ono rea
son why so many of theso lads havo at tho first
go off gotten better corn crops thnn their fnthers
have ever been nblo to produce with nil their ex
perience back of them Ib that the youngsters
have nono of tho contempt of tho old fogies for

In making up the rerordB of tho young corn
growers nnd awarding tho prizes Mint nre qffored
tho government ofilelnls tnko Into consideration
other things than tho moro crop yield, regardless
of crist of cultivation and every other fnelor.
Indeed, In making nwards thero aro considered
In addition to yield, the cost per bushel, tho best

of tho crop prepared by tho boy who raised It,
Not all tho boys who won tho big prizes and wero
personally rongratulnted by President Taft In tho
White House nt Washington mado tho largest
yleldB In their states. Tho economical hide was
nywuys taken Into consideration In giving out
the prizes nnd In apportioning tho diplomas of

sented to tho boys who called on him at Wash

champion corn growers In every Instnnco "mado

1,500 persons havo assembled at a county Beat

tho way to Increased averages of com produc

Tho yields made during tho past season by
