Scottsburg, Ind., Aug. 24.-Remarkable as it may seem, there are two small fields of corn in Scott county which will yield over 200 bushels to the acre. One is owned by Marion Harrod of Alpha, nine miles north of here, and consist of one acre, off which Harrod claims he will raise 250 bushels. The other is a field of seven acres, owned by E. P. McCaslin, of this city, who introduced it here, and it will gield fully as much per acre as the field owned by Harrod. Last year Mc- Casli made scientific experiments in the culture of corn on his farm, seven miles north of here. He raised twenty-two varieties, many of which are entirely unknown to the farmers of Indiana, and some of which are without name. How McCaslin Got His Seed. His experiments proved highly suc- cessful. The specimen which produced such a remarkable crop was named by the grower cornucopia. The poorest ground will produce at least 100 bushels of this corn. It was originated by a gentleman from Kentucky about four years ago. Removing to a different country, he presented a single ear to McCaslin, exacting from him a promise that he would develop it, unmixed with other corn. McCaslin had exactly 348 grains, of which he reaped a harvest of a little over seven bushels. He sold a small portion and the rest he planted in his own ground. Harrod thus ob- tained some of the grain. Ten Ears on a Single Stock Evrey stock of this corn produces five well-filled ears, averaging at least three, which are ten inches in length, while on some stalks are to be found ten perfect ears of first-class quality, being very solid on the cob, and run from ten to fourteen rows to the cob. Five ears taken from one stalk last year weighed two pounds and eight ounces, which would be over 200 bushels to the acre. McCaslin claims it will yeild at least three times as much per acre as amy other variety known. He hopes from his crop this year to extend its culti- vation to various parts of the state and eventually south and west. In the 1900 US Federal Census for Jackson, Jackson, Indiana, 43-year-old Eugene and 40-year-old Flora [Florida] have been married 17 years. They and their children, 6-year-old Pauline and 1-year-old Clifford Harod, are living at 209 St Louis Avenue. Eugene is probably a carpenter, but the census taker's writing is difficult to decypher. In the 1910 US Federal Census for Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana, 53-year-old Eugene P and his wife, 60-year-old Florra [Florida] are living at 24 Blington (?) Avenue with their children, 16-year-old Pauline and 11-year-old Harod [Clifford Harrod]. Eugene is a carpenter. In the 1920 US Federal Census for Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana, 62-year-old Eugene P is living alone in a house he owns at 5901 Dervey Ave. He is a "house" carpenter. In the 1930 US Federal Census for Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana, 73-year-old Eugene is still living alone in the house he owns at 5901 Dervey Ave, worth $6000. He lists his occupation as carpenter and does not own a radio. In the 1932 Oakland, Alameda, California Voters Registration list, Walter Langley and Mrs Pauline Langley are recorded as living at 4864 Park Blvd. Walter works for the National Ice Company. Pauline is a secretary. Also recorded at this address are Pauline's parents, Eugene P McCaslin and Mrs Flora [Harrod] McCaslin. Eugene is a carpenter and Flora is a housewife. Everyone is Republican. (Oakland Precinct No. 290, Alameda County, 1932, Roll 34, Image 714) Eugene Palmer McCaslin was living with his son, Clifford Harrod McCaslin at 2737 Humboldt Avenue, Oakland, Aladema, California when he died on 26 Aug 1948.
