Dr. Moye of the Watertown ball
team recently submitted a challenge
to Manager Olson of the Princeton
team, to have these nines clash on
neutral grounds, for a substantial side
bet. The proposition was accepted so
promptly as to make doc's head swim,
and the Monticello diamond- was
designated as the place of the im
pending battle. Upon second thought
Mr. Moye* concluded that he could
scarcely afford to donate one hundred
simoleons to backers of the Princeton
teami and called it off. Princeton is
in the game for the sport of it, and
is not soliciting side bets. But it does
not propose to be bluffed.

Do you think a salary of twenty
five dollars a day would tempt you to
work harder or for a longer time?
This is what you may make by spend
ing from one to five or six days select
ing and caring for your seed corn.
Good seed corn means at least $25
to $50 more money for the average
farm next year. If every corn grower
in this section would select seed corn
carefully it would mean an increase
of $50,000 in the community's wealth.
Selection in the field may develop a
variety that matures well, grows on a
good stock, and yields more grain in
proportion to the total weight.
