CAREFUL PACKiNG OF PEARS
Care -Should Be Exercised .Not to
Have Fruit Hang Too L.ong,.a

(By c. C. vmNCET.)
While the packing of any fruit Is
largely a matter of experience, there
are certain principles which apply to
all fruits, though more care must be
exercised with some varieties than
with others. The pear Is a very per
iablhe fruit and reqaires the most
careful handling. The picking season
yaries with the prevailing climsatic
conditions each year. Whenever, on
slightly twisting the stem and turning
the pear upward, It will snap off, the
fruit Is ready to pick. Of necessity
It must be picked for shipping while
yet In a green state. Great care should
be exercised not to have the pears
ang too long, for It deteriorates the
shipping qualities very materillyr.
fter picking, the fruit should be
'acked and shipped as soon as possi
ble, as they are quite perishable.
The boxes for pears must be lined
ith wrapping paper and the pears
thmevsalso wrapped. There is an
icreasing demand for fancy pears,

EEED SELECTED EARLY
Farmer May Be Reasonably Sure
of Corn Stand Next Year.
Consideration of Strength and Char
acter of Corn Stalk, Height of
Ear From Ground and Size of
Shank Should Be Noted.
(By C. P. BULL.)
One of the main reasons why seed
corn should be selected early is to be
reasonably sure it will grow the fol
lowing year when planted. Early se
lected seed corn is the corn that usu
ally gives the best stand. Without a
good stand it is impossible to get a
marmum yield, and it costs no more
to raise a field of corn with a perfect
stand than it does to raise a field with
a 60 to 70 per cent. stand.
Every good kernel of seed corn has
in it a live, though very small, corn
plant. This plant is tender and easily
injured, unless kept under favorable

Few farmers save enough seed corn.
One bushel of shelled corn will plant
from seven to eight acres. One hun
dred to one hundred and twenty se
lcted ears will make a bushel of
shelled corn. At this rate it will take
from twelve to fifteen ears to plant
one acre. It should be remembered.
however, that the first selection In
not always perfect; and oftentimes
upon second selection and germina
tion test, half of the fist selection
will be thrown out. Thus it is seen
that there should always be selected
in the fall at least twice as much
seed as the farmer expects to plant.
There is little danger of getting too
much seed corn. Any surplus, if the
seed is good, can usually be -sold at a
In case one has no "special seed
plot" In which his .best and earliest
maturing ears were planted, it Is then
necessary that his seed be selected
from the field. The most practical
method to do this is to go through
the field with a sack tied across one's
shoulder and select the choicest and
best matured ears. ~Two rows of corn
may easily be examined at once. Dur
ing the process of selection, consider
ation of the strength and character of
the stalk, the height of the ear from
the ground, and~ the size of the- shank,
should be noted.
A stalk does not necessarily have
to be large to be a big producer. A
tall spindling plant lodges very eas
iy. The stalk should be of good size
and strong at the base, gradually tap
ering, and not necessarily tall. Strong,
vigorous stalks of medium height,
usually produce the best and earliest
matured ears. The ear should be at
tached to the stalk by a medium-sized
shank, which Is long enough to allow
the tip of the ear to hang down.
All ears in a cornfield will not ma
ture at the same time. A variation of
fifteen days in maturing of ears in a
field is not uncommon. One of the
reasons why a good selection of corn
cannot be made from the shock or
from the field late in the fall, Is that

Drainage of Wet Lands,
For the management of wet lands
the usual advice is to tile drain them, .
but an intelligent German farmer now
living in this country suggests that it ,
sometimes pays bettor to make arti

acre of fish ponds is often reckoned .
worth more than an acre of wheat.
The dams may be built with farm -
labor at small expense, and the ponds
add considerably to the beauty of the -2
scenery. Very often, also, the ponds
can be used to some extent for irri- -'
gaton, and irrigation will work won
