READY TO BECIN RECEIVING
AND SHIPPING SEED CORN
Definite plans have been worked
out by the Christian County Board
of Agriculture for the aale and dis
tribution of seed corn for the farm
era of this district and other sections
A storage room has been secured
in the Hille Building on Main Street
between 11th and 12th street. Any
farmer may bring hia aeed corn here
and have it tested or retested and
it will be looked after by either
Messrs. J. W. Keeling, John Bouldin,
or Kirhard Bouhlin. A secretary
has not yet been arranged for but
one will be put to work next week
to handle all moneys received and
make the disbursements. He will
handle all correspondence connected
ith the carrying out of this work.
Several orders for seed corn have
already been received in answer to
advertising already done, and these
orders were accompanied by checks
which already amount to nearly S2,-
000. It now seems as though this
plan is going to work out to tha mu
tual advantage of both those who
have good aeed corn and the farmers
who have to purchase.
All moneys for seed com sold out

Every farmer who has good corn
should arrange at once to teat same

situation is critical and the farmer
who has good seed corn should be
willing to dispose of the same at
$5.00 per bushel less 10c for the
selling and shipping of same.
