CATECHISM FOR CORN QROWERS
Pertinent Questions That Every
Farmer Ought to Study.
Goin' to plant any corn this spring?
Test every ear ; that's no great job.
What does the seed for one acre cost?
About 2S cents at f 2 per bushel.
Now is the time to sprout kernels
from the seed corn you intend to use.
"Is it worthwhile?" It's worth $100
to (1000 when you figure the balance
sheet for the year.
How much difference does it make?
That's a lone story ; some hints of the
answer are civen below.
How do you know? There is only
one sure way, and that is to test the
germinating power of the corn.
The value of every day's work done
daring the season is affected by the
time intelligently spent in selecting the
How much of your seed corn will
grow? Only as much as will germinate
and perhaps little more than will ger
What's the use? It's the use of sev
eral hundred dollars ; you don't have to
grow more than 100 acres of corn for it
to be the use of ?400 or $500.
What disadvantage is there in secur
ing fine seed corn and making sure it is
of high germinating strength? It makes
the hnsking -a bigger job.
How many bushels of the crop will
one bushel of seed influence? Any
where from 200 to 700 bushels; at fifty
bushels per acre it influences 350 bushel.
The best seed corn at f 2 or fa a bushel
is several times cheaper than poor or
uncertain corn as a gift. There are
more elements than cfhe in economy.
Will your seed corn grow if given a
chance? Yes, if the germ is alive and
healthy; no, if the germ is dead ; maybe
so and maybe not, if the germ is weak.
If less than 90 Jper cent, grows the
risk of reduced stand is too great ;
high authority has said that no corn
should be planted that tests less than
There is p'enty of time now to attend
to this, and to get good seed if yours
proves too low in vitality. Will it be
attended to? After awhile it will be too
This is very eiinplejand easy to do,
and it gives a definite measure of the vi
tality of the corn. It's better than all
guesses and estimates. You can't af
ford to be uncertain about it.
Whether you plant last fall's corn or
corn of the previous year, your own
com or that bought from a seed dealer,
be sure that it will grow by planting
some of it now and seeing whether it
What wages can I make by giving a
week's time to selecting corn and ad
justing the planter? The biggest wages
of any week in the year. Five dollars
or $ 10 a day "isn't in it" with the wages
of this work.
Does it make any difference what
kind of sed I plant? Yes, it may make
the difference between a common crop
and a bigger crop ; the difference be
tween a small crop and a large crop ;
the difference between success and
Oh, I don't want to bother with these
college ideas; I've'been selecting seed
corn for years and years. All right ;
one economy paves the way for another,
and the chances are you won't have to
bother with handling so much com
Should I lend my influence to these
fellers who are selling Euch high priced
seed corn? Not unless you want ; select
your seed from your own or your neigh
bor's corn, but the point is to get the
best seed, no matter where you get it
or how much it costs.
The time and money and labor and
sweat and weather and soil are going to
be the same in raising a crop of corn,
whether the seed is good or poor, but
the single item of seed selection may
change the results or the returns from
all these elements in making the crop.
How .many days of toil in preparing
the ground, cultivating and harvesting
the crop are influenced by the few days
or hours spent in selecting the seed? It
isn't hard to figure; just add up the
number of days' work you and your
hands spent during the year on the corn
crop and compare it with the time you
spent in selecting the seed.
What is the relation between the in
vestment and the returns in the pro
duce from a bushel of seed corn? The
value of the crop,is from 40 to 140 times
the value of the seed, and may easily
be seventy times. In quantity the
crop is 200 to 700 times that of the seed
with the chances easy for its being 350

Fantagrapb, which is published where
they know something about corn grow

Have you whitewashed that hen bouse
this month? If not, you should do so.
Bemember the early bird gets the worm.
It is also that the early bird gets the
best chance at the shows next fall.
Give your little chicks plenty of wheat
and email grains. Too mnch corn is
very injurious to them.
Have you tried an incubator yet? If
not, it will pay you to get a small size
and learn the trade. You can increase
your flock much more rapidly.
Care is what it takes in raising young
cnicks; so don't Ietjthem out on wet
days and not too early in the morning
as the damp grass is injurious to them.
Do not give one hen too many chicks
to care for. Ten to fifteen is a sufficient
amount for one hen to care for.
A few guineas aro very profitable and
are of a little trouble or cost to a farmer.
They will keep off hawks and crows,
which are very injurious to a farmers
flock of chicks.
It will pay you to send to some good
breeder and get a setting of eggs this
spring to build up your flock next year
When setting one or more hens in the
same nest, at different times, always
clean the nest out thoroughly. White
wash and place in some new chaff or
hay and burn the old Jittery as there
may be lire in it.
It is a very goyd plan to sprinkle your
setting hens once or twice a week with
good 1U8 powder, Don't
them get lousy.
The Farmers' Advocate Eayat "The
goose no longer has the distinction of
being the only fowl that can lay a golden

A light, sandy or gravelly soil is best
for a poultry farm. Land that has good
natural drainage towards the south.

People who desire to obtain decent in
comes from poultry farms must be sure
that the hen cannot be depended upon
to do the hatching. The hen is all very
well for a family affair, but not for busi
ness. Quantity calls for the incubator.
The old hen is unprofitable. Do not
keep laying stock much over the second
year. This item will be dispute.! by
people who believe they know some
thing about the business, whereas they
only think they know.
A writer in the Canadian Poultry
News says that few fanners realize that
the cost of a setting of pure blood eggs
is very often no more than the selling
price of three or four scrub chickens,
and the surplus males of a single setting
of pure bred stcck, even if sold to the
poultry buyer, will usually bring sev
eral times the original cost of eggs.
Still better returns can be gained by
letting your neighbors have extra males
at a small advance on market prices.
The Western Poultry World says that
it will not cost-more than one-half a
much to properly house a pair pigeons of
as a pair of hens. A barn loft, gable,
or, in fact, auy out-of-the-way place
where you cannot keep anything else,
will make a home for Mr. Pigeon and
his wife, with which they fall in love
and from which they will never wander
except to find their feed. They will be
at homo every day of the year; Mr.
Pigeon may go out after feed morning
and evening, but he will take care of the
young and sit on the eggs during the
day anil let his wife get a little fresh air.
Apples as a Moral Influence.
"Scarcely too much can the apple be
extolled Eince it bas been almost entire
ly the creation of man. Starting with
the crab apple of Europe, man has pro
duced a fruit that has no comparison
with its original. Nature could only
furnish the germinal, and is not given
to making improvments. When Supt.
Stimson the pomology department of
the World's Fair says: "There is "no
doubt tnat apples are a cure for the
drink habit, the tobacco habit, the 'In
dian' habit and many others that may
be called objectionable" we appreciate
deeply what the apple ha-j done for man
and still more deeply what man has
done for the apple. Prof. Stimson adds:
"Apples elevate the morals of persons
who eat them and if the United States
were a greater apple-eating country we
should liave less crime and fewer woes.
When you want to smoke, eat an apple
and vou will find the deaire in a meas
ure satisfied. Do the same if you want
It will be seen that the apple is the
enemy of the saloon and of the vice of
smoking. The moral effect of apples
has been too much neglected. We have
tried to reform entirely with the Gos
pels and moral suasion. Had we gone
into the haunts and hotbeds of vice
and crime with an apple in onj hand
and the Bible in the other we might
have had better success.
Mr. Stimson says that apples are good
for the "Indian" habit. This is- some
thing that has never been tried in all
the efforts to reform St. Louis politics.
The "Indians" have not had apples
enough. Barrels have been opened in
plenty, but not apple barrels. Clayton
conventions would be impossible on a
diet of apples. Hereafter the sturdy
farmer should go to his convention with
a dozen apples in one pocket and a
well oiled .44 in the other.
Sartorial Art ami Rotundity.
There Is trouble in store for the ro
tnnd gentleman who cherishes the ldia
that he can enjoy the pleasures of
comfort In dress and remain In the
fashion that is. If the decrees of the
London tailors count for much In this
"land of the free and home of the
brave." These tailors, whom we have
been wont to regard as the sartorial
dictators not only of the "tight little
Island," but of a good part of the rest
of the civilized world, have Issued an
edict setting forth that a man to be
In fashion must wear padded hips and
bare a small waist Lest any one may

who do not get enough outdoor air and
good oxygen in their lungs. There are too
many white blood corpuscles in such cases,
and there is often a peculiar sound in the
heart, called a murmur, in cases of anemia.
This heart murmur is caused by thinness
of the blood passing through the heart.
The murmur of anemia disappears .when
the blood regains its natural consistency
and richness. It is not heart disease.
Sometimts people suffer intense pain over
the heart, which i i not heart disease, but
caused by the stomach. It is the occasion
of much anxiety, alarm and suffering, for
which its victim is dependent upon reflex
disturbances from the stomach caused by
indigestion. In the same way many bad
coughs are dependent upon these reflex
disturbances of what is called the pneumo
pstric nerve. To enrich the blood and
increase the red blood corpuscles thereby
feeding the nerves on rich red blood and
doing away with nervous irritability, take
Dr. Pierce'n Golden Medical Discovery,
which promotes digestion and assimilation
of food so that the blood gets its proper
supply of nourishment from the stoiuach.
Get as near to nature's way as you can. A
medicine made entirely of botanical ex
tracts and which does not contain alcohol is
the safest Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery contains no alcohol or narcctics.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the
best livsr pills.
A woman usually passes through sev
eral stages on her way to that condition
of serai-invalidism which limits the ac
tivities of so many of her sex. For a
time she suffers in silence and ignor
ance, not able to relate her sufferings to
their proper cause womanly disease.
When, presently, she makes the discov
ery that her general health is related to
the local womanly health, she casts
about for help. She dislikes to see the
physician, she shrinks from talking to a
stranger of the intimate matters of her
woman's life, and when at last misery
drives her to the doctor, her modesty is
np in arms at the faintest hint of exam
ination, and she finds excuse to put the
matter off and goes home to endure
another period of suffering.
It would seem a strange thing if the
sacrifice of modesty were necessary to
the restoration of yomanly health.
Such a sacrifice is not necessary. Wom
en suffering from womanly ailments in
almost all stages have found a perfect
and permanent cure by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
A FREE OFFER.
To those women who suffer from dis
ease in chronic form. Dr. Pierce offers
the privilege of free consultation by let
ter, thus avoiding the unpleasant ques
tionings, indelicate examinations and
obnoxious local treatments deemed nec
essary by some local physicians. All
correspondence held as strictly private
and sacredly confidential. Address D
R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
This offer of free consultation bv letter
should not be confused with offers of
"free medical advice" which are made
by persons without medical knowledge or
experience, and who are barred, legally
and professionally, from the practice of
medicine. Though these people cannot
oractice medicine, because the law would
be prompt to punish them, they can of
fer " free medical advice." Anybody can
give advice without incurring the pen
alty of the law. It is well to remember,
that the " medical " ad vice of an unquali
fied person, man or woman, is worse
thn worthless; it is absolutely danger
ous. As chief consulting physician to the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y., Dr. Pierce, assisted by
his staff of nearly a score of physicians,
has, in a little more than thirty years,
treated and cured hundreds of thousands
pf weak and sick women. Write, there
fore, to Dr. Pierce, and get the opinion
of a specialist upon your disease.
"About two years ago my health be
came very poor," writes Mrs. Winnjp
Hamilton, of Akron, Plymouth County,
Iowa. "I suffered with pain and sore
ness in left side of abdomen and such
bearing-down pains across me. Could
scsrcelv walk at times, and would have

eo to quash tho measure and prevent
it getting before the House. At that
time, It is said a majority of the mem
bers of the House committee favored
tho bill and stood ready to report it, if
given an opportunity.
Thero has been great reversal of senti
ment, however, duo to tho admifsions
made by George H. Maxwell, president
of the National Irrigation Association.
During the hearing on the bill he told
the committee thai transcontinental
railroads and large holders of scrip had
oeen contributing foO.000 annually to
maiuiain his association, and that thee
eontriuu'ois looked to the organization
to exert itself to secure the repeal of the
timber and stone, desert land and home
stead commutation laws.
This admnion has been generally
lateen by members ol the House to
mean that lliwe scripholderii have been
making systematic attempts to secure
legislation which would compel person?
seeking timberlands and large holdings
of others to buy from the railroads or
purchase blocks ol scrip. Iu other
words, members generally believe that
the agitation for land reform is instigat
ed entirely by the railroads and scrip-
holders with a view to increasing the
value of their lands and provid
ing a ready market for them. So strong
has become tli'fi belief that all chance of
