eventually was done. And then the
farmer took the acre away from him.

and wondering If the work Is not too
hard for him, Imagine anything much
meaner? Then the tenant farmer told hi.
youngster if h. would clear another acre
of land he might really have that. What
sort of stuff that boy Is made of can b
judged from th fact that ha took up
th challenge and cleared atioihor acr.
This he was allowed to keep. II. se
lected bis own seed and tested It after
the methods that had been outlined to
htm by the department, and raised his
acre of corn between times when he was
not working on the regular farm.

boy. la that th corn sella for aaed in
their region at several times the market

will turn their attention to raising seed
One cf th tiniest tots of the lot was
Jerry Moore of Winona, R C, who raised
the KS-bushel crop. II. Is the son of a
Methodist circuit rider and tbe youngest
of nine children. Ilo raised his com on
the parsonage lot. and consequently had
no rent to pay for tt, but Ii charged
himself $.1 for the rent, in calculating the
cost of the crop.
Floyd Cayer of Oklahoma Is another
of th llttl fellows. He raised his corn
on land that his father rents from an
Indian. II Is th youngest of three
children, and Is still ut school. He plans
to make enough money to continue
through an agricultural college. This
year, In an open competition with men
at Ardmore, h. won f23 in gold and the
boys' ptlia of ta. The people of Ard
more promised to end the Kiy to Wash

offered th slate prise, and the boy won
that. Next year he plans to put five
acres In cotton. His list of prises Is re
markably various. He won a Jersey row
worth fjo, a pair of shoes, an overcoat
worth $10. two pigs, f,V In rash, a Ji suit
case, a 15 bat, a rug sod, an ax.
Joe Hton of Georgia . another boy
prise winner, who ha. to walk thr.
mile, to school, and whose father farms
on half shares.
These are some sample, of the corn
club boys. Not only have they all raised
big crops, but the corn from neb of
these record crops has been sold for seed
to surrounding farmers for next year at
a high as U a bushel, and each of the
demonstration acre has been visited by
an average of 100 farmers, who wanted
pointers on how It waa don.
No wonder the official of ths Depart
