2-1. Taken together with some
fifty exhibits made by farmers, ;
the corn show held at the State
Fair this year is probably the
largest and best that has ever
been held in the South. Twenty
one parish boys' clubs made ex- is
hibits as follows: R
Avoyelles, Bienville, Bossier, S

Tangipahoa, Union, Vernon, ni
Webster and Washington. Ship- is
mients of corn made by the clubs ri
of East Feliciana, Lincoln and
Winn were not received. u
The display from these ci
parishes comprised 242 in- a
dividual exhibits of ten ears and ii
100 exhibits of one ear. The o
average of the corn shown was ii
approximately 20 per cent better p
than it was mn 1909, and twice as o
large, The total awards made to s

Care of the
One source of less to the Iouis
iana farm arises from the too
general practice of leaving- all
sorts of implements exposed to
the weather unnecessarily. The
life of the plow or cultivator that
is left on the turn*row between
seasons of use can be doubled by
being stored under shelter when
not in use. The same, of course,
is true of the wagon, hay press,
Another point that needs me.
ljhasis in this connection is the
careof the wood parts of imple.
ments.. A coat or two apllied to Ný
implements during the idle days na
sof winter will protect wood and
iron, prolong the life of the im- NI
plement and pay a good dividend
on investment. Broken parts Ni
should be repaired at this time
bolts tightened, and the imple
ments stored away from damp to
places. Plow shares should be
. cleaned before being stored, even
for only a few days. The im
plements of the average farm L
represent a considerable outlay,
tand if the aninal wear and tear
can be kept down to 10 per cent
I instead of being allowed to run
up to 20 or 25 per cent, it means
s a considerable saving to the
L. farmer. b
