James Terril of Howard countj was Barber of Booce was overcome by the
filing on friends in the city this morn-, heat, since which he has acted somewhat
ing and relating some experiences of hi I queerly at time. Last week, acconi
in connection with the progressive ideas pazied by his thn daughters, he went
as to the growing of corn. He said he ' to the Fullerton assembly. On Sunday
made several testa of corn gro-sing this ! while attending a meeting at the andi
aummer. Ee selected a small patch of, torium he got up and went out. Hd:d
ground, which he plowed at various not come back, and his daughters looked
depths and in which he planted corn at for him some time before they announced
different dates. The different plantings the fact of his disappearance. When
show a very marked difference ia color 1 evening came they ot alarmed and asked
and size'from the same soil, the deeper , the assistance of the sheriff. He called
plowing being decidedly the bet. A for volunteers and two hundred men
very interesting experiment he made on t responded and pnwcated a tnoroutrh
corn that had been sunburned after "and systematic eearcfa until nudniaat
tasselling. Xo sign of earing was viai-land then rested until morning- About
ble. he took a few hills, stripped th
stalks of all dead blades, and dug and
loosened up tne sou about the hills six
teen inches deep. Today those hills of
corn have regained their former fresh
ness and vigor and new ears are shoot
ing out, while corn a few feet away is all
dried up. Grand Island Independent.
Ever ince the opening of the irri
gating ditch east of town there has been
a legion of croakers who have denounc
ed the scheme, declaring that it was of
no use wnatever except to irrurate gar
dens, and that corn could not be irri
gated successfully. Many of the farmers
under the aitch have refused to give it
a trial on their com as long as there wae
any sight for it to make anything with
out irrigating. Bui th Leader believes
