EXPORTATION OK CORN "*
FROM NORTH CAROLINA.
West Raleigh, Feb. 23.?All the
corn exported from North Carolina
passes through the port of Nor
folk, according to W. R. Camp,
Chief of the Division of Markets
ing. For the last ten years North
Carolina has averaged about 140,
000 bushels per year through this
port, most of the corn going to
Germany. Only the variety known
as Horse Tooth corn has been ex
ported. This corn brings from five
to ten cents a bushel over Western
corn. South African corn is begin
ning to enter into active competi
tion, however. This corn will ger
minate 98 percent., while our corn
germinates only 81 to 88 per cent.
Our corn is more prolific than the
South African, so the corn from
the two places stands oh equality.
No corn has been exported this
season on account of the war.
T. W. Wood & Sons are report
ed to buy about 1,000 buahels a
year of North Carolina Horse
Tooth corn for distribution as seed
in the United States. Norfolk also
handles fronf-10 to 11' thousand
bushels of other corn _from North
Carolina. So under normal con
ditions this would make the total
amount of sale of North Carolina
corn from 136,000 to 166,000 bus
hels a year through Norfolk alone,.
At the same time a great deal of
corn is shipped from Norfolk and
Richmond into North Carolina.
This should not be so if we bad a
proper system of distribution.
The Chowan Club of Oomo was
organized October 26t)i., 1914
with 14 members, but now the
number has increased to 23.
We have met once each month,
and these meetings are always
enjoyed for we strive to make the
programs interesting as well as
At a recital gfvCn under the
auspices of the club on November
30. 1914, the sum of 46 dollars
was realized?which amount was
left in the bands of the committee
of the Alumnae Association, to be
used as they see fit.
Our last meeting was held at the
hospitable home of Mrs. K. A.
Magette, February 15th., 1915.
The meeting was galled to order
by the president and then a very
interesting article was read by
Miss Jessie Barrett. After this
the minutes of last meeting were
read and the roll was called by

Soaaa Gxccllwt Krsulia Show* By a
Summary of a Preliminary Aaaual
Report By State Agent C. R. I lad eon.
The Farmer*1 Co-operative De
monstration Work carried on by
our A. and M. . College and our
State Department of Agriculture,
co-operating with the United
State* Department of Agriculture,
i? sow in operation in 69 counties
.of the State, with a County Agent
in (barge of the work in each
county. During the present year
these men had enrolled as demon
strstors and directly under their
supervision, 5,859 farmers. These
farmers were growing for their
own benefit and as demonstrations
in their respective communities
the following crops, where the
best known methods io agriculture
were applied: 11,086 acres ofcorn,
3.068 acres of cotton, and 55,487
acres of otber crops, or a total of
69,651 acres. This is an average
of over 1,000 acres per county in
During the present year these
agents have made 38,607 personal
visitis to individual farmers. They
have talked to 104,884 farmers in
meetings attended. They have
probaty advised and helped as
many more of which we have no
record. Each demonstration plat
influences from five to one hundred
farmers. Farmers often drive
from eight to ten miles to study
these plats. Aside from this, there
were enrolled about 10,000 other
farmers, some of whom were
Visited, and all of whom received
agricultural -bulletins, pamphlets,
etc, In this work there is not
much stress put upon the method
of giving instructions or advice by
correspondence, still serverai let
ter* have been written in reply to
requests for information by farm
ers. By all of these methods com
ytqed, there has probably been
reached 500,000 farmers, most of
thqm in a practical way.
Aside from this, tbe growing of
the ordinary summer crops,
another valuable feature of the
work, has been the growing and
planting of 50.737 acres of winter
growing crops. A conservative
estimate of these is that ^hey are
wortfi at least $10.00 per acre, or a
total value of over |5?i0,000.00.
These crops consist of 32,510 acres
of clover; 4,240 acres of grasses,
and 12,987 acres of other crops,
consisting of rye, vetch, rape,
small grain, etc.
During tbe season County
Agents have started definite sys
terns of rotation of crops with
1,081 farmers. These will furnish
yalbable object lessons in their re
spective communities, and will
furnish much valuable information
to Demonstration Agents to be
distributed through their counties
