Grew In Spite of Age
Corn Found in Indian Mound Planted and Proved Productive
Floyd Tully of Stout, O., has received from a Clay county (Ky) friend an ear of corn that has a history. It was grown from seed dug out of an Indian mound in that county, says the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. The seed which was 60 feet underground, was in a jar, scaled, and was close to a skeleton that measured 8 1/2 feet in height.
The corn was planted and proved a good yielder, and the ear presented to Mr. Tully was part of the product. Mr Tully distributed Kernals among his friends, who will plant them this year.
