K It Butler, Sr., in this Issue gives
us his method in raising the acre of
corn that produced over 100 bushels to
the acre Mr. HuUer livea this side of
Arcadia and is the only man among the
nine 100 bushel men that lives in On
tario vicinity. The following is taken
from his noUis:
The land on which thia corn waa
raised had been seeded to alfalfa for
fifteen years and in the spring of the
yesr waa broken up nnd prepared for
the crop. The corn was planted the
27th of April. The earlier the corn ia
planted the In-iter if the ground is
warm enough to germinate the seed.
Yellow dent com was used as it gener
ally produces a more solid and ia gen
erally of super, or iuality. However.
white corn will bring larger results and
is more generally planted.
This corn was planted thick with a
one horse drill and then as soon as it
c.i.ne through the cmun I it wss hsr-
r Ai-il. The corn was plsnled a little
to thick for the best results and
should have been thinned.
Much bin! corn weather was exeri-
enced and did much to cut down the
yield. When the corn waa about a
foot and a half high the frost of Juna
4th struck it. It recuperated from
this attack and then the hail came
which, according to all reports, struck
harder in thia locality. Some idoa of
its (.verity may be gleaned from the
fact that the apples in the orchard
were unfit for packing purposes on ac
count of the bruises.
In raising corn the idea is to keep
from watering it as long as possible.
This corn was watered three times and
each time aa aoon aa it waa dry enough
it was plowed with a two-horae culti
vator. In this way the ground did not
have a chance to crack and so did not
have to be irrigated so much. It was
watered the last time about the middle
of August. In July the suckers were
When the land wss measured and the
corn harvested it was found to have
produced 107 bushels lo the acre. This
measurement was conducted by the
Corn Club ollicials and a reort made
to the Orange.'

Association will be so far straightned
out that the intention to transfer the
cemetery to the city may be accom
plished. According to law one half of the re
ceipts of the association must go into
an irreducible fund the interest on
which, if loaned out, shall be used to
maintain the cemetery.
The Association being in debt $1600.00
the one half of receipts will never be
sufficient to wipe out the indebtedness
and the only way the incumbrance can
be removed ia for the association to
disolve so the fund can be appropriated
or that purpose.
In the event of the city assuming the
management and maintainence of the
cemetery it is almost certain it will be
