Corn contains nearly the same
quantity of nutritive clemtns as an
equivalent measure of wheat,
while the stover of the corn is
worth so much moro fdr animal
feeding than the straw of wheat,
that the total food value of a
bushel of corn with its stover is
much greater than that of a bushel
of wheat with its- straw. More
over, in average practice in 'the
greatest corn states moro than
twice as many bushels of corn arc
grown to the acre as of wheat, so
that the potential food value per
acre of the corn crop is more than
double that of wheat, although the
average price of the bushel of com
is only half that of the bushclof
The wqrld's annual production
of corn and wheat is about four
billion bushels of each crop. The
United States produces about
three-fourths of the world's coi-n
and about one-fifth of its wheat.
"" Corn this winter is of unusually
" low quality"" due to frost damage.
Only 55 percent of the Ohio crop
fully matured,, according to esti
mates of the U. S. Department of
Agriculture. Only about one
fourth is fit for seed. Seed corn
chosen in the fall should be well
dried out before freezing weather
comes. Storing it in an attic or
dry furnace room will insure a
-ji'igher percentage of sound ker
nels next snn'ng. Any seed corn
chosen last jear will likely still be
fit to plant next spring if properly

Soon Over His Cold. '
Everyone speaks well of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy after having
used it. Mrs. George Lewis, Pittsfield,
N. Y.. has this to say recrardinc it:
"Last winter ray little boy, five years
old, was sick with a cold for two or
three weeks. I doctored him and used
various cough medicines but nothing
did him much good until I began usinc
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He
then improved rapidly and in a few
days was over his cold."

Beginning with the Red Cross
work in Pcrrysburg last April, the
women oi the Pcrrysburg branch
of the Toledo Association have
faithfully and in the face of many
obstacles in the way of proper con
veniences, steadily adhered to
their work and have produced a
quality of work in advance of
many similar organizations for
Which they have received marked
approval from the Toledo Associa
tion. Since the beginning there has
been used 45 bolts of muslin from
which have been made :
. 30G3 bandages.
Approximately 6000 surgical
172 hospital garments.
They have knitted 600 hanks of
yarn, making :
227 pairs socks.
71 pairs wristlets.
For nine months these women
have met conscientiously every
LTucsday and Friday morning at
U:dO a. in. and worked until 4:30
p. m., only stopping for lunch, and
in many cases bringing their
lunches, so as to utilize all time
Through the courtesy of The

at their expense in order to better

The average attendance of the
workers has been from 20 to 25
women daily and now that a

There is also needed additional
sewing machines in order to get

The women, who have given their
time so faithfully and in many
cases under great inconvenience to
themselves several coming by foot
from long distances) now feel that
more of the women of Pcrrysburg
should support the work and make
the plea that every woman having
the good of Perrysburg boys at
heart, whether it may be her boy,
or some other mother's boy, should
rally to do her bit and in Avorking

The boys of this camp arc very
sorry to send the news that from
now on their letters to the Journal
must contain nothing that could
possibly be used to advantage by
the enemy. Tho orders were read,
to us today and the captain ex

though each) letter in itself would
convey nothing, but parts Of differ
ent letters could be put together
and much information could be
gathered in this way. So we will
comply with the order. Wc were
also requested to be very careful
in our private correspondence as to
me movements ol troops, etc. All
cameras must be registered and all
pictures must be censored before
they are sent away. Pictures which
are .sent home must not be pub
