Promising Crops In Jackson
John Farmer of Jackson county
on the Shady- Creek, says they have
had fine rains and crops are very
promising. This applies to both corn
and cotton. The 'hopper has done
no serious harm and the pest is dis
appearing. Farmer tells us that land
owners on Sandy Creek for several
miles on that stream have cleared
and ditched the broad bottom lands
that had been abandoned for many
years, and have them planted in corn.
Farmer says he reclaimed ten acres
of this land and it is said by all
who have seen it that the corn will
average at least fifty bushels per
acre. The stalks are fifteen feet
high and heavily fruited. There are
some broad flats on this streaiji and
. - t..:ey are brought back into
cultivation farmers will make corn,
wet or dry. Tom Hudson once plant
ed about 75 acres of this bottom in
hay and they made him about $3,000
a year with only the labor of mowing.
He was our first hay raiser.

Road Board Still
For State Mileage
No attention is being paid by the
state highway board to the political
claims made by certain guberna
torial candidates that the board has
only 49 1-2 miles of additional state
highway to allot. Holding that it
has approximately 800 additional
miles to add to the state highway
system the board is going right
ahead with its hearings on the pe
titions of those who desire roads in
On Friday the members of the
>ioard will go to Griffin, where they
will hear several petitions. One of
these requests that the road from
Franklin to Hogansville be taken
into the state system and another
urges the inclusion of the road from
Griffin to Columbus.
Thursday the board heard a num
ber of petitions in its rooms atvthe
state capitol. One asked the relo
cation of the road from- Hinton to
Talking Rock so that it would run
from Hinton to Jasper. Another
urged that the road from Homer to
Maysville be given state mainte
nance on January 1, 1927, instead of
on September 10, 1927 as heretofore
agreed. Still another seeks to have
the road from Maysville to the Hall
county line taken over for mainte

Several months ago the board
mapped. out a program for the mile

every group of citizens who wished
to be heard before allotments ars
made should have an opportunity to
present their claims. The board
also took the position that So many
people are interested in the various
projects that wherever possible it
would be better for the three mem
