are comparatively very cheap and will

N io Corn Bears Ever Come South

Fertilizers For Corn.
We have referred to fertilizers as
though we could not grow corn witi
out it, but this is not the case, as
niany linve good lands that grow pay
ing erops witiout the use of any fer
tilizer. If we had to confine our
choice to only one side application
we woul p111p l itrate of soda at
Our observation and experience
with the Williamson method is Ihat
planting the erop early and down in
tle water furrow and the late side
application of solible fertilizers con
tribues more to the success of 'the
Williamson method than the "stunt
ng'' of the plants.
Selecting the Seed.
We prefer a hIard white -rainl and
not less than-two ears to the stalk.
We used to want one bi - ear on ac
:'otit of hand-shiuking and gather
i, but now we, do aill the stuit of
l.ia estng, shuckin, fodder-pull I inl(
aid shredding by Inachiiinery. and the
1iumber of ears to tle stalk has no
1onsideration in the imlatter. In al out
100 tests of seed corn taken from
planting machines in Towa the Ames
Nxpei-iimeint Station test showed a
:iff'rence of 20 bushels to nearly
100 bushels in the seed to the acre.
That.is a good seed, gave sometimes
50 bushels increase to the acre.
Curing a Critic.
Tle daughiliter of a certain. states
ian has a liusband Iiwho is disposed
to be critical. Most of his friends are
nen of great wealth who live extre
nely well, anid association with thenm
has iade him somewhat hard to
pleasein the matter of eookiing. For
some time the tendency has been
.rowing on him.
"What is this meant for?'' lie
would ask after tastinig an entree his
wife h' ad racked lier brian to prepare.
"What on carti is this?'' he would
ny when dessert vame on.
"Is t his supposed' to be salad?'' he
would inquire sarcastically when the
lettuce was servedl.
The wife stood it as long as she
could. One evening lie cam'e home in
a particularly captious humor. HI-s
.wife was dressed in her most benom
ing gown and fairly bubbled over
withI wit. They went to dinner. The
50u11 turieein was broug~ht in. Tied to
one handle was a card, and on that
card the information in a big round
''This is soup1.''
Roast beef followed with a p)lacar'd
" Thiis is roast beef.'
The~ potatoes were labelled. The
gravy dishi wuas plaear'ded. The olives
>ore a caird marked "'Olives, '' sal
ad bowl car'ried a tag marked ''sal
ad '' and when the ice pudding came
ni a card announcing " 'this is ice
yudidinig'' waus with i't.
The wife talked of a thousand dif
ferenit thuing's all through the meal
never onice refrming by word or look
to the labeled dishes. Neither then
ior thereafter (lid she say a word
about them, and never since that eve
ning has the captious husband ven
lured to incouire the nme of any
t.hing set before him.-Tit-Bits.
