Hear Farm Speaker
(Special to The Star.)
Ellenboro—More than sixty farm
ers heard James M. Gray, Chilean
nitrate of soda expert from Raleigh,
at a field meeting last Friday to
harvest the com and study the
yields In the com fertilizer test con
ducted cooperatively by the vocc
tional aglcultural department of tne
Ellenboro school and the Chilean
Nitrate of Soda Educational bureau
at the Rutherford-Cleveland coun
ty llhe on highway 20.
The plot fertilized with 200
pounds of nitrate of soda as a side
dressing proved to be the most
profitable way of fertilizing uom
despite ths fact that another plot
m the test made two bushels nure
of corn per acre. The corn was of
ficially weighed and the yields were
found to be: Plot 1. fertilized with
350 pounds of an 8-3-3 fertilizer at
planting time, 14.7 bushels per acre:
plot 2, fertilized with 200 pounds of
nitrate of soda all as a side-dress

plot 4, which was fertilized with
"50 pounds of acid phosphate mixed
with 25 pounds of muriate of potash

gave a yield of 29 bushels of torn
per acre; plot 5, which was ferri.iz
ed the same as four except 300
pounds of nitrate of soda we; j used
yielded 27 bushels on the acre basts.
The cost of the fertilizer per ~cre
on plot one is >83.75 and the profit
above cost of fertilizer $3.53. The
200 pounds of nitrate of soda on
plot two which is worth $5.00 gave
a profit per acre of 815.44 while the
cost of the fertilizer on plot four
figured to be $7.86 with a profit per
acre of $13.63. The $10.48 worth of
fertilizer used on plot five returned
a profit per acre of $9.13 Lasc. sear

Old Man Fall.
Charity and Children.
It is rather a pathetic picture to
see old man Fall, once in the Unit
ed States senate and a member of
Harding's cabinet, sitting in a roll
ing chair and making the battle of
his life to save his reputation for
moral integrity which he failed to
establish before the great body of
lawmakers in Washington. It is a
tribute to the senate that he was
convicted of bribery and left the
trial in disgrace. His punishment
was a long time coming but it came
at last with crushing force. The
way of the transgressor, even of a
prominent transgressor, is hard.
