PEPPER i Continued from Page available for homesteadlng. Although 43 when came to Arkansas, Mr. pepper entered the logging business with his wife and son ns assistants. At first, he slaked out a 120-aci-e homestead In the old Walker's Lake area and began clearing the land. The limber couldn't be sold at Ihat time because the title to this Janet was not clear. A series or suits and appeals In an effort to clear this title finally settled the Issue and he picked out n 160-acre tract on which to settle ami begin his logging operations. The Peppers' first home In Mississippi County was a tent pitched some. 30 yards from the site o Hiclr present homt. His brother in-law moved a poriable snwinll from Cooler and they sold logs l< the larger mills at Blytheville, Ar morel and Tyler, Mo. Built First I.arse Mill In '^^ Mr. Pepper built his first Urge awmill In 1012. This building sllll slands today and is used as a slock barn. The water trough by his barn was made from the boiler used In 'hat mill. Their first home was constructed few yards cast of the present ouje and was made from clap- aid sawed in the pepper mill. This house burned later, however, and forced the Peppers to move into a small shop back of the mill and a barn. The outbreak of World War I and the United States entry In the hostilities l» ISlfi made II Impos slble for Mr. Pepper to ship his logs because of curtailed river transportation. He then began manufacturing finished lumber. Of the 16 residences nnd five barns on the I'cpper farm, all but one were constructed of lumber finish- In this mill. Switched to Asrlcutture After the land in that area became cleared and drainage ditchos i were due. cotton began to make Its] ! bid for prominence. Mr, Pepper' switched from lumber to HRricul- .ure about 2ft years ago when the timber began thinning out. They built their present home in 1916. Mr. Pepper retired several years SRO and uimrd over operation of the large farm to his son Stan- Ion.' During the part of his llfclime that he spent In Illinois, Mr. Pepper acquired n» Interest In corn. What began as a hobby evolved Into n work that made him widely-known among corn-growers. His experiments In selecting and breeding corn varieties resulted In what is regarded by fnrmcrs as a Rood strain of while corn. Mr. and Mrs. Pepper made yearly visits to experiment stations in the corn belt and la nprcmaiuists at the University of Illinois. In addition u> work In the curing of seed. Mr, Pepper maintained soil-testing laboraior. He was one of the first phntr-s In Mississippi Counly to test snll. other growers to lest, their soil, bu*, also first produced the later-verl- ied conclusion that nitrogen was he element that heeded to be added ,o Mississippi County soil to produce better cotton. The Pepper farm Is the only en« n North Mississippi County on which the land has been tiled. Mr. Pepper made his own tile during the depression years of the early 30's, when It was installed. Mr. and Mrs. Pepper celebrated their eoth wedding anniversary thla summer.
