seed is to select it In the field at this
lime before any hard freezing has oc
curred. By selection In the field the
character of the plant and the condi
tions under which It grew can be con
sidered. Many times there are undcr
strable characteristics In the plant
which should be eliminated as much as
possible The stalk may be too tall
and slender; the foliage may not be as
heavy and dense as la desirable; the
shank may be too long, the husk may
be so light that it does not furnish
the beat protection against depreda
tions by birds and Insects; and the
plant may have produced a large num
ber of suckers These characteristics
are hereditary and care should be
taken to select seed from the plants
showing the best characteristics. Pre
ference should be given to those ears
grown !! stalks which have produced
heavily with out special advantages
of space, moisture, or fertility.
The typo of ear to select will vary
somewhat with the variety. It should
be of good length for the variety, well
filled at the tip and base, nearly
cylindrical In form, and have a rela
tively small cob. Avoid aelectlng

After securing the seed It should ho

BELGIANS OPEN DYKES
Qermsns Trying to Cut Off Antwerp
Caught by Flood.
Antwerp The Belgians, by a re

large force of Germans to the south
west of Mallnes by Inundating the
country and Inflicting heavy losses.
The Qermana had left Brussels la
great force with the apparent inten
tion of cutting the lines of communi
cation between the coast and Ant
werp. When they had penetrated to
within a short distance of Mallnea
from a southwesterly direction, the
Belgians opened the dykes, flooding
the oountry. This took the Germans
completely by aurprlse. They worked
heroically waist deop under a fire of
the forts to extricate their gun and
suffered severe losses.
