Grow Your Seed Corn on Your Farm.
Some days since a man said: "I
looked at my oats they were very
light so I am going to buy my seed."
This man was sincere in wishing to
get good seed but his plan may be
open to question since his production
was more than fifty bushels per acre,
considerable higher than the state ave
rage, and his crop was grown in north
eastern Minnesota which suffered less
from rust and blight than the prairie
districts. Consequently his oats are
good for seed.
Where does the seedsman get his
stock? Assuming that he is a high-
class merchant, he either grows or has
grown for 'him certain approved
strains. These are threshed and run
through the fanning mill, once for]
choice seed and twice for select seed.
The original cost of the stock, shipping
charges, the milling and bagging, the
freight to consumer and a margin of
profit are all added together. The
farmer buys the seed and pays the bilL
The moral is evident it applies to
potatoes as well as grains. Grow a
good strain of barley, oats or potatoes,
do the grading for seed yourself, and
save your money. It is common prac
tice to feed the home-grown oats and
then to buy seed. This is hardly profit
table when feeding oats ordinarily
sell at forty cents a bushel and seed
oats at from eighty cents xo one dol
lar. Potatoes are profitable at $1.50
a bushel, but they are also expensive
to buy back, for seed at $2.00 to $2.50
when they are uncertain stock at that.
On the other hand, it hardly pays to
plant the seed potatoes or sow the
oats directly frpm the bin regardless
of grades when it has been repeatedly
demonstrated that for the labor of se
lection a man is repaid by approxi
mately 15 or 25 per cent crop yields.
No investment except a little mental
and physical effort is required in se
lecting seed potatoes while a small
fanning mill is a light investment for
a farmers' club.M. J. Thompson,

A DANGEROUS TROUBLE.
Princeton People Tell How to Act in
Kidney diseases are very dangerous.
They come on silently, gain ground
rapidly, and cause thousands of deaths
that could have been prevented by
proper treatment in the beginning.
Nature gives early warnings of kidney
diseasebackache, twinges of pain
when stooping or lifting, headaches
and urinary disorders. If these symp
toms are unheeded, 4here is grave dan

a reputation for their effectiveness in
kidney troubles, -and are known and
recommended the world over. Prince
ton testimony proves the merit of
Doan's Kidney Pills to our readers:
