* FARM HEWS
^ By L. A. AMMON
Thy com crop continues, to im
prove in our estimation as the fields
are topped. Much of the valley
will exceed the live year average.
Mr. Geter, the Extension Editor,
and a Federal photographer were
with us. last Wednesday, making pic
tures of things that looked gpra
and being done according to the tst
methods. One or two pictures of
most everything Ave prow was made.
They refused to take any pictures
of corn with the tops, cut off, as it
is considered poor practice.
Why do those who have barn
room for stover cut tops? Figures
obtained from last year's results,
show that it is actually cheaper to
save the entire fodder crop by
shyedding than in and other way.
These are figures from this County.
Those who have tried both ways
claim that one- acre made into stover
will feed twice as far as an acre
topped and fodder pulled. Some
definite figures art being kept this
Friday night's storms did consid
erable damage to the corn crop and
orchards through the Davidson River

Some consistent winning again. This

The rains are coming about right
now. Enough to keep late garden
truck growing, and at the same time
'? allowing the saving of feed.
From many sources I learn that
Macon County "is- the only mountain
County that can ? hold us a light in
farni production this year. These
two Counties have' the least cleared
land, the District Forester says, and
The district Forester was in town
Monday. He ha> appointed Mr. Gal

are sure to be patted on the back
for our luck in not having fires the
last few week.-.
