Eats Sweet Corn From Own Garden For Past Two Weeks While other people are husking their corn and bragging about their large yields. L. O Ho*k, 300 Eighth avenue. Rock Falls, i« digging his teeth into toothsome roasting ears daily. And they are from his own garden, too—large well filled, golden bantam ears, succulent and sweeter than those raised during the normal season. Mr. Hoak Is an amateur gardener with vision. He so rotates his gap- den as' to have fresh vegetables from it almost the year around. He surprised himself a bit. however, on his corn, which was planted late in the-season and which he did not expect would fill because of the heavy rains. The late frost appears to have done no harm to the ears and for the past two weeks he has been eating new sweet corn at every meal. Unless there is an unusually hard frost in the near future. Mr. Hoak believes he will continue to pick sweet corn for week or 10 days to come. Al C & D 1-50 AUls Ch Mfg 3Ti Am Can 8P-» Am Car Fdy 37 1 * Am Loco 11 Am Rad Si St &'?
