LABOR FOR CORN BREEDERS
Better Quality and More Bushels Per
Acre Should Be the Watchword
of Every Farmer.
111Y 1R1O). A. T. WNTAINCKE.)
F~itst, I would say, begin corn breed
ing work 1uon a small scale. I would
emphasize th!s becasie you can give
a. small plat more attention and it is
better to make a big improvement in
a small lot of corn than a small hi
provement in a large lot. A small
plat planted with the few very best
earo will produce enough to provide
a flne quality of seed corn for the gen
eral crop the following season.
To heg~n with, you should secure a
fe.w god ears of the very best va
riety for your conditions. If you have
not already got it, it may be advisable
to Conduct It small variety test of
those varieties which appear to suit
your conditions. In this prelIminary
work the varieties should be planted
side by side tnder the same conditions
and a careful study of each iade.
Having selected the variety with
which you wish to begin, give up all
others and keep the varIety pure by
careful selection and keeping the
breeding plant. isolated so that pollen
from other fields cannot reach it.
You ean always find a spot upon the
farm wl:ere a small plant can be iso
lated. There are just as good rea
sons for keeping a varIety of corn
pure as there are for keeping a breed
of live stock pure.
For the breeding - plat we should
always celect a good, clean pieco of
ground, where the corn can be given
thq very best attention. Don't be
afraid of spending too much time on
this small plat. If you use the pro
duct as seed for the next year's fle'd
crop, you will be many times repaid
fcr the extra trouble. .
Plant each two ears in alternate
rows and detassel all the rows of one
of the cars, to prevent in-breeding,
and select seed for next year's plat
from the detasseled rows.
All breeding should be towards a
single, defilnito' type. In carrying'out
this we must keep ih mind the size,
form and color of the ear; the form,
depth, shape, roughness and hardi
ness of the kernel; the covering of
butts and tips; the time of maturity,
etc. The character and size of the
stalk and the root and leaf develop
ment, as well as the position and char
acter of the shank, must also be kept
In mind. A good, vigorous stalk may
make the difference between a good
and poor crop, esp~ecially when sea
sons are unfavorable.
Producetiveness must, of course, al
ways be a leading Interest and all
batren and wveak stalks should be
decstr-oyerl before they shed piolien.
The car-eful cotrn breeder shotuld be
personally acquainted with each and
every stalk in the breceding plat andI a
record of the pedigr-ees of each se
lected for seed in the breeding plat
should be kept.

PLAN FOR SEED CORN HOUSE a
Detailed instructions Given for Con
struction of Building to Be Sot
on Concreto Piers.
The small seed corn house shown
in the accompanying diagrams should
be built at least 3 feet off the ground
1111d set on concrete piers. writes J.
1)wight Punk in the Breeder's GaizettQ.
The building is 16 feet square and 10
feet from floor to square. There are
live rows of piers 4 feet apart and the
viers are 4 feet apart in the row.
Five GxGs, which are 16 feet long, aro
laid on the fivo rows of piers. Sills
iinswer for joists. The floor is of 2
inch stuff. 1'he studding are 2x6
inches and are spaced 2 feet apart.
The rafters are 2x4 inches and spac
ed 2 feet apart. Shingles are used for
the roof, which is one-third pitch, and
there are two ventilators in it. The
studding is 2x0 inches and 10 feet i
long, making 10 feet from floor to
square. There are two rows of up
rights from the floor to the rafters, V
the uprights being 2 feet apart nud
the rows 4 feet apart; each row is 6
feet from the outside wall. Alake '
floors of wire cribbing every foot from
tle floor to the square between the
studding and corresponding rows of
uprights, using 2x4s on which to lay
the wire cribbing. Theso 2x-i sup- '
ports aro 2 feet apart in each floor.
The floors are 1 foot. apart. Place a
6-inch board at side of each floor to T
keep corn from rolling off. There are

side; they are 2 feet wide and 9 feet
high. Keep them open in fair weath

floor. There will be 11 floor-s to each
