Even today we don't really appre
ciate corn. We still fe;d most of
our crop to hogs and steers, In
this way millions of pounds of the
finest tasting work and beef are
produced. If the corn crop was led
directly to human beings, it would
furnish five times as much food
value, and we would appreciate
more fully how wonderful the plant
Every year we are using corn
more and more as human food.
Some we grind into corn meal and
use for mush or corn cake. Some
we eat in the form of breakfast
foods. Part of the corn crop is hull
ed and made into hominy. We eat
sweet corn green and pop-corn pop
ped. Little by little we are com
ing to appreciate what cheap, fine
tasting foods can be made from the
Hundreds of things we do every
day are influenced because of the
corn plant. The syrup you pour on
your pancakes tomorrow morning
may come from com kernels. The
collar you wear to church on Sun
day is probably starched with
starch of the corn grain. It is pos
sible that the boots you pull on as
you go to do the chores are made
partly from the corn plant. If you
either smoked or drank whisky,
you would probably pay tribute to
the corn plant. Most of our whis
ky and beer is made from corn ker
nels, fermented with barley. The
"Missouri Meerschaum," or corn-cob
is said to be the cheapest and best
of all pipes. If you ever go to a
high-class hotel and eat fancy salad
it may possibly be seasoned with
corn oil. As you wash your hands
yeu may be using soap which is
made party from corn oil. Many
kinds of candy are made from glu
cose, a kind of sugar which comes
from the corn plant. Some kinds
of mucilage are made from dex
trine, a corn by-product.
Corn stalks are used for almost
as many different things as the ker
nels. They make good stock feed,
fed whole, or shredded, or cut up in
to quarter-inch lengths and put in
the silo. Today they are learning
to use corn stalks in the manufac
ture of paper. As I am writing
these words I have before me some
paper made out of corn stalks. In
appearance, it is as good as the pa
per on which Wallaces' Farmer is
printed. It would not be surprising
if some day you would do most of j
your writing on and your reading !

If You Don't See the Advantage
of owning a farm in the Big Horn Basin, it is undoubtedly due
to my inability to properly describe the country, crops, climate,
etc. Mow here is a proposition for you. The Burlington Route
will run Special Homeseekers' Excursions to Powell, Wyoming,
on November 19 and December 3. If your fall work is in good
shape, why not arrange to go with me on one of these excur
sions and see these rich farm lands, irrigated gy the Govern
ment, where you do not have to pay a profit to anyone? All
you have to do is to return to Uncle Sam the actual cost of
irrigation during the next 12 years and that without interest.
There you can see nearly 12,000 acres of alfalfa now in stack.
It is a wonderful showing and tells you better than I can, what
what you could could do on a homestead there. Within four
miles of Powell you can still secure just as good farms a3 those
now growing these bumper crops. Get a copy of our illustrated
folder from your local agent, or write me and I will tell you
how to join one of these parties.

Corn is the most wonderful plant
in the world. No doubt the China
men and the Japs disagree with this
statement. They think rice is the
most wonderful plant Canadian
and Dakota farmers will stand up
for wheat The Irishman thinks
that the potato is deserving of a
position among the most wonderful
plants, while the negro of the south
can scarcely see how any plants can
be more wonderful than the cotton
and sugar cane. We can't get along
without rice, wheat, potatoes, cotton
or sugar cane; but I assume you
will agree with me when I say that
corn leads them all in being the
most wonderful plant grown any
where on earth.
An acre of corn will gather more
sunshine at the expense of less labor
than will an acre of any other crop.
That is the real reason why the
corn plant is so wonderful. During
the last ten years people have just
begun to realize how wonderful the
corn plant really is. They used to
think it was good mainly as a feed
for hogs and steers. They didn't
even feed much to milk cows and
horses. Occasionally they ground
it for corn cake, but the negroes
ground up and the germs are taken ; beer and whisky. They change
out. The germs are dried and corn corn starch into sugar by means of
oil is pressed out of them. What ; ferment which is found in barley
remains is either sent to Europe or kernels. 1 he germ and the Horny
cake or is ground
cheaply than any other plant, I am
sure that it will be used very ex
ensively. It will be pleasant for
you and me to watch the increased
use to which the corn plant is put
year by year. Wallaces' Farmer.
