Ear-rot Ib different from corn smut,

This fungus (diplodta Zeae) lives

on no other portion of the plant. It

Obviously the thing necessary then,
is to take out of the field and destroy

Of course a better remedy is to rotate

OUT THE CORN CROP
Easy to Do Part of Work In Barn ]
During Inclement Weather If
fRv GEO ROE K. BROWN.)
In sections of (he country where the
corn crop is quite large it is almost
impossible to shuck out the entire j
crop in the barn, hence tho most
handy and economical method of disposing
of the corn and fodder In tho
open field during the early fall months
Is sought out. This Is tho way wo
gather our corn:
As soon as the crop is ready to haul
into the barn wo nil up our large base- |
ment floor, which holds about two \
Rood days' husking, nnd keep it stored
there for bad autumn days which are
sure to come.
When we are driven from the fields
by stormB we husk and bundle this
stored fodder out, and by the use of a
sling attachment fastened upon our
hay rope we easily pull the bundles,
about fifteen at a load into the mows !
with the use of the farm team. In j
this manner the basement fiocv ,
ready for more shocks from Uv field
as soon as the weather permits.
Out in the fields on nice days we can
keep the husking moving by employ- '
ing the low farm wagon unon which !
is fitted a combination wagon box and
rac k. Tho wings of this rack closed
np form a tight box and by lotting
ono wing dovn and driving alongside
the shock row each shock is readily
husked out. the corn thrown directly
into the bed, the fodder bundled, and
shockcd or piled into bunches. Each
evening after tho day's husking is
store d in tho cribs tho same wagon i
i is employed in gathering in the day's ;
husking of fodder which is hauled to
the barn and securely stored away.
In tliis manner each day's work is
finished tip clean and no concern is
felt by us as to what the weather of the
next day or two may he. In one cor- !
ner of the wagon bed is a hox for
choice ears of seed, selected as wo
go along. If the fodder is to bo
shocked up in bunches for stacking
later on, we carry a discarded kero- j
sene can, fitted with a temporary battorn
into which has been placed a ball
of twine with one end threaded out
through the spout.
From this ball we cut out our supply
of twine for tying the bunches and
have no trouble from the twine entangling
among the fodder.
We aim to get all the corn into the
cribs and the fodder into the stacks
and barns as early as possible, for
after winter storms set in, fodder rapi
idly depreciates even in well shocked
I bunches in the open field.

BABY'S SKIN TORTURE

Ho said it was eczema and from that

and hands were a solid sore. There
was no end to the suffering for him.
Wo had to tie his little hands to
keep him from scratching. He never
knew what it was to sleep well from
the time he took tho di&easo until he
was cured. He kept us awake all
