. Corn Will Grow in Oregon
The fine stand of corn , in the vicin
ity of Independence is sufficient prooi
that corn will grow in Oregon. On
the road between this city and Mon
mouth there is a field of several
acres of corn that is earing just like
it was grown in a corn country.
Over on Missouri bottom. J. R. Coop
er has corn that stands six feet, with
m .r with 14 and 16 rows on
them and as many as three ears to
the stalk, now that it has been
fully demonstrated that corn can be
successfully raised here farmers
should devote more attention to its
culture, as there is always a ready
market for it at a good price.
