Improved Methods of Corn
Raising Are Certainly
vaiiUAijm: to con.v guowkks
Tho farmers of this country aro
losing more than half a billion dol
lars on their corn crops every year.
Maybo they don't know It, but thoy
nre. And tho worst of It Is that this
enormous loss could bo prevented
In such a simple and easy way that
to follow It seems like child's play.
"What's tho matter?" the farm
Tno anawor Is. simple: "You
don't tast your seed."
"Why, man alive," the farmer
exclaims, "don't you know that any
farmer can toll good seed corn
when ho sees it? Or If ho can't tell
by tho way It looks, ho can by
cracking It with his teeth or cut
ting it open with a Jack knife."
It is evident that something has
got to be done to get these fellows
out of tho rut. Agricultural teach
ings, so far, havn not had tho do--8ired
effect. Thoy have been too
much along tho Hne3 of the old
fashioned camp meeting revival. A
small percentage of tho farmers
have been brought to the mourn-
JP.l'iUiSJLSJiiJL0. i25E?Jii Ji.li! '10 ma"
jorlty of them have backslid, as
converts have over done.
Realizing that old - fashioned
methods must bo supplemented by
sometMng new, the Crop Improve
ment Committer) of tho Council of
Grain Exchanges, who as a body
and as individuals aro as much in
terested in tho success or failure of
the corn crop as the farmer himself,
Eet about to devise ways and means
for cracking tho shell of tho man
who thinks he knows it all because
ho has "always done It that way."
Finally thoy hit it.
"Eureka!" they cried. "We'll
teach the- men -through tho ' boys
the father through tho son. We'll
establish argicultural kindergartens
In tho rural schools, and whon the
fathers and uncles and big brothers
see what the children know about
testing seed corn, we'll land them."
This is having Its effecti The
farmers are coming to realize the
value and practicability of the
methods advocated by the Crop Im
provement Committee, and while
some of them profess to scoff at
these methods, they aro secretly
putting them Into practice. '
Tho method employed In the ag
ricultural klndorgartens Is the "rag
baby test." The "rag baby" bears
no relation to Httlo Mary's home
made doll. It is merely a simple
Httlo device for testing seed corn,
or any other kind of grain, and its
mysteries can bo solved by any boy
or girl in a few minutes.
Tho "rag baby test" is conducted
In tho following manner: A piece
of heavy sheeting about 15 Inches
wide and four or five feet long Is
marked off Into a dozen or more
spaces about three inches square,

others, knowing of their value. For
somo time I suffored Intensely from

ruunlng through the center of tho
strip. Tho squares aro numbered,
say from one to twelve. An oqual
number of cars of corn nro selected
for the test and nro numbered to
orreFpond with the squares on the
flnth. Tho cloth In then thorough-I-
moistened and spread out In
front of tho cars to bo tested. Plvo
or six kernels nro takon from car
number ono nnd placed In squnro
number one, and bo on until all the
squares have boon Illlod. Then the
sides of tho, cloth aro folded over so
tho edges will overlap In tho center
and tho strip rolled up, beginning
at cither end. If tho cloth is well
moistened, the kernels will not be
displaced. After the cloth Is rolled
up, a string or a rubber band is tied
loosely around each end, nnd tho
"rng baby" is finished. It Is not
necessary to limit tho number of
squares to twelve. From twenty to
thirty ears can bo tested In each
I After tho roll is tied up it is then
placed in a bucket of water, where
, It Is allowed to remain from two to
eighteen hours, as tho operator may
I prefer. The water is then poured
I off, the roll placed on a couplo of
I small pieces of wood to keep It from
I touching tho floor, and n damp gun-
nysack placed over it to keep it
j from drying out. The bucket la
then turned upsldo down over tho
( roll, one edge of tho pall being rals
I ed half an Inch to give ventlllatlon.
It Is important that the corn
I should be thoroughly moist, but
I not so wet that seed will smother.
(Care should also bo taken that tho
corn is not chilled. Tho best re
sults will bo obtained If It Is kept
In a temperature of about 70 de
grees. At the end of four or five
days the kernels should begin to
sprout. The "rag baby" Is then op
ened up aqaln, the kernels aro ex
nniinpd ca'-pfully and the boy or
tvo boy's father can see at a glance
whlch of.j.h opars are ; good seed
and which should bo thrown away.

Blood Was Wrong
All women, who suffer from the aches and pains, due
to female ailments, arc urged to try Cardui, the reliable,
scientific, tonic remedy, for women. Cardui acts promptly,
yet gently, and without bad effects, on the womanly system,
relieving pain, building up strength, regulating flic system,
and toning up the nerves. During the past half century,
thousands of ladies have written to tell of the quick curative
results they obtained, from the use of this well-known medicine.
Mrs. Jane Callchan suffered from womanly trouble for
nearly ten years. In a letter from Wjiiteville, N. C, she
says: "I was not able to do my own housework. My
stomach was weak, and my blood was wrong. I had back
ache, and was very weak. I fried several doctors, but they
did mc no good. I used Cardui for 3 or 4 months, and now
I am in the best health I have ever been. I can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try Cardui.
