The State Warehouse Grader.
Mr. S. B. Nicholson, our State
Grader is doing good work for the
system. He is taking in new ware
houses and informing the farmers in
regard to the State Warehouse. The
State Warehouse is a great benefit to
the farmer who wants to hold cot
ton, PS he can issue his receipts and
they are as good collateral as any
bank should ask. The insurance is
much less than he can get any other
way and the expense of holding cot
ton in his-own warehouse is nominal.

iSie sole purpose of hunting down,
eliminating and punishing lawless

Select Seed Corn in Field.
s Clemson College, Sept. 19.-It is
very important to have good seed
corn to plant next spring and now is
the time to begin to get it ready. It
has been the experience of nearly all
good farmers as well as experiment
stations, that field selected seed corn
gives better results than crib selected
In selecting seed ears we need to
know the kind of stalk that the ear
grew on and the chance it had to
succeed, suggests Prof. C. P. Black
well, agronomist. We should not use
an ear of corn for seed just because
it is large _ojfa~good show ear. We
should take our seed ears from stalks
that grow under average conditions
and not in skips. We should consider
the whole plant and its environment,
the number of ears it has produced,
size of the ears, the shape and gener
al perfectness of the ar, the anngle
at which it stands to the stalk, the
covering of the tip by .the shucks,
and freedom from disease. All these
things should be kept in mind in se
But selection alone will not give
us good seed corn unless it is proper
ly cared for after it is selected. It
should be thoroughly dry when har
vested and should be stored by hang
ing in a well ventilated dry barn and
should be kept frea from mice and
rats and weevils.
More than enough to plant our
crop next year should be selected so
that they may be some to. discard
at planting time next spring.
Making these selections now will
mean much for the success of the
corn next year.
