If the com you are raising is
i that long eared, cobbed, shallow
! grained and few rowed variety
! you will not need to waste any
(time selecting or caring for seed
Icorn now. Your corn will grow,
i no matter what treatment it gets
I th is winter, and as for selecting
I the best cars, a scoop shovel next
spring at planting time is as
good a method as any.
But if your corn measures from
,71 to 8 inches around and is from
9 to 11 inches long, each weigh
ing over a pound when thorough
ly dry, cob small carrying IS to
24 rows of seed, uniform grains,
no spaces between rows, and
butts and tips well filled out, you
would better select your seed
corn now and see that it is put
away where it will thoroughly
dry out. Such corn, although it
yields well per acre, must have
care or it will not grow when
planted. Nor can we keep such
high standards without continued
selection. The law of variation
causes undersized cars to come
in the best of corn ; but the same
law also produces a few excep
tional ears. It 13 these eare that
should be selected for seed The
average of the ears produced
from these good ears is much
above that produced from the
poorer ones. Here, then, is the
reason for the continued selec-
Stion, that a high standard once
I reached can be maintained.

Diphtherie is caused by a germ.
After the patient has recovered
from diphtherie this germ may
remain in the secretions of the
mouth and nose for a long period
of time a number of months
such a person is called a diph
theria carrier. When a carrier
coughs the secretions of the
mouth and nose containing diph
theria germs are thrown about
the room or directly into the
mouths of those near by. In
this manner diphtheria is spread.
Diphtheria is most common dur
ing the months when children
are in school. Here the chil
dren come in close contact with
one another and the opportunity
tor receiving infection trom a
carrier is greatest. Diphtheria
carriers . should be detected by
a bacteriological examination
of the secretions of the mouth
and nose. Thi3 is more impor
tant when diphtheria is known
to be present in a community.
