FARM NOTES BY
THE COUNTY AGENT
The practice of replanting corn
does not pay. The first planted stalks
tend to crowd out the replants and
prevent them from making their pro proper

the ears of the replants are usually
not well filled out because of poor
pollinization, due to the fact that the
second planting is in single hills, or
spots, and placed some distance from
Where the stand of corn is very
poor it will pay better to plant the
whole field again rather than to re replant
plant replant the missing hills. If the stand
is fair, the best thing to do is to plant
velvet beans, peanuts or cow peas in
the open spaces. On account of the
slow growth of the velvet bean, it is
to be preferred. It will hold its own
while the corn is making and after
the corn is matured it will come on
and produce just as well as if no corn
had been there.
In applying fertilizers to growing
crops the aim should be to get them
down into the moist soil. It requires
about three weeks for commercial
fertilizers to become t available for
plants, and to put them in dry dirt
may mean that the crop will suffer for
lack of them before a rain comes to
make them available. Should fertilizer
be applied in dry weather and rain
fail to fall for three weeks, it is like likely
ly likely that six weeks will elapse before
the crop can get the benefit of the
plant food. A rank growing, quick

into the tie for first place but each of
them lost one of their final "birds,"
land finished "even up" with 11 hits to
their credit. At that, both of them
surprised themselves and their fellow
members. Martin had never before
j fired at a trapshoot and the straight-
shooting, straight-speaking min;ster,
t although an expert rifie shot had been
able to do little with the scatter-gun.
After scoring three misses with a
double-barrel, he tried a single-barrel
gun and thereafter but one "whizzer"
escaped his aim.
For third place, Thomas L. Hames,
captain of the club, R. G. Betts and
Rex Nichols also shot themselves into
a tie with scores of 10 hits, Betts com
ing from behind and winding up with
five straight "kills," while two of
Hames' and Nichols' last string got
away from them.
As the supply of "birds" ran short,
it was not possible to shoot off the
ties and the honors of the day there
fore remained divided.
Of the other contestants, W. S.
Cogswell, who so easily won the
Belleview's club's first shoot, suffered
an unusual reversal of form and pul
verized but seven of his 15 targets

-as he strange to trap shooting, tho'
a capital bird and big game hunter,
but he has but one arm. The genial

"Uncle Joe," fired ten shots at the
