Capt. S.J. T. Johnson has kindly presented us with a turnip raised by Merritt Drane, of this county, which is the premium turnip of the season. It weights 8 pounds, and measures 29 1/2 inches in circumference. But the curiosity does not end here. It has four fully developed tops with, but one tap root. It is what is called flat Dutch, and was raised on black land. With this specimen we are prepared to call the hand of any of our contemporaries. A few more of this kind would glut the market and drive our western vegetable growers to other markets.

Caleb Curl, 13, of Frost FFA, won grand champion of the commercial heifer show, the first leg of the commercial heifer overall prizes. Unlike a lot of the other animal categories, commercial heifers aren't show-things with smooth coats and stardust on their hooves.
