GREW IN SPITE OF AGE
Corn Found in Indian Mound Planted and Proved Productive
Floyd Tully of Stout, Ohio has received from a Clay County, Kentucky friend an ear of corn that has a history. It was grown from a seed dug out of an Indian mound in that county, says the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. The seed which was 60 feet under ground, was in a jar, sealed, and was close to a skeleton, that measured 8 1/2 feet in height.
