"Your attention is at this time call
ed to rule 2 of the rulqs of the con
test, which reads as follows:
"'Each contestant is to furnish and
ship to the commissioner one sample
bushel of corn in the ear from each
acre grown (except in the case of
live-acre contests, for which one bush
el Is sufficient), to be Judged, and then
sold for benefit of expenses of con
"Your attention is further called to
the fact that your growers' manual,
properly Idled In, acording to notice
given In the manual, must he in my
bands in Columbia not later than Oc
"Notice is hereby given, also, that
the furnishing or at least one quart
of shelled corn, put upin a glass bot
tle as near the date of harvest as
possible, and properly marked with
the name of the contestant and the
variety of corn is required to be for
warded before October 15 to the
commissioner of agriculture at Co
lumbia. This requirement is for the
purpose of submitting all varieties of
corn grown in the various sections of
the State to chemical analysis for
moisture content and nutritive power,
with a view to ascertaining by com
parison all aarletles of corn suitable
for the various sections of the State.
It is essential that this corn be shelled
and put in a dry bottle and sealed as
quickly after the harvest as possible.
This corn should be sent by express
to Columbia as quickly as possible,
and in no event will it be received
later than October 15.
"I trust that every contestant will
realize that the two dates fixed for
the receipt of these specimens are
essntlal to a proper judgment upon
the quality of the corn grown this
year. I wish It very clearly under
stood, nlso, that the date fixed will he
rigidly adhered to, and the failure of
any contestant to have his specimens
In my hands by those dates will dis
qualify him in tlio competition for
tlie State prizes."?The State.
