FALL CARE FOR CALLA LILY
Size of Plant and Flowers Are Largely
Covcrned by Size of Pot In
When n calla has bloomed in the
house during the winter, It should be
kept watered until summer, then
bedded out in a sunny situation In tho
garden, There let nature care for It
until fall, when it should be repotted,
flays Park's Floral Magazine. If you
have a large tuber, and you wish large
flowers, then use a largo pot. If you
want a dwarf plant, use a small pot.
The Bize of the plant and the flowers
arc largely governed by the size of the
pot. When a plant fails to develop
properly, It is mostly because the soil
is sour or unfit for the growth and
development of the slant.

The little brown slug that defoliates
the pear, plum and cherry trees during

easiest of our Insects to control. No
one need allow this Insect to do any
serious harm to his trcs, if he will
thoroughly use the remedy here given
Steep two ounces of fresh white helle
bore In one gallon of water, and use
as a spray when the slugs are first
seen. Stir the mixture often; or,
better yet, have an agitator attach

Is a second brood of the slugs, neces
sitating a second spraying.

Testing Seed Corn Before Plant- *
Seed corn which has been stored
through the winter under ordinary
conditions In South Carolina, is often
thought to need no testing before
planting. Hut the high price of land
and the additional expense of replant
ing the field demands that the progres
sive farmer know more about the qual
ity of seed that he is to plant.
The proper time to make the germ
inating test is about three weeks be
fore planting, so that if any had ears
are found in tho lot and discarded,
the ears which nre to take their place
may also be tested before the seed are
placed In the soil.
A convenient sized testing box for
the average farmer Is one that Is 24
inches by ,24 nehes, and about 4 to 6
inches deep. This box can he made
from six inch plank or a soap or
starch box sawed down to the desired
depth can be used. This box should
have a layer of at least two inches of I
wet sawdust packed tightly over the
bottom. It will be found convenient
to wet the sawdust In an old sack
by letting (the sack containing the
sawdust) soak In warm water for 20
to 30 minutes, so that the sawdust
may have an equal moisture content
Having completed the box, take a
piece of white cloth, which should be
a little larger than the box, and mark
off one hundred squares 2x2 inches.
Number each of these consecutively
from 1 to 100, then dip this cloth Into
a bucket of water and stretch it even
ly over the sawdust.
When the tester is complete, take
the ears of corn to be tested and num
ber each ear. Then tage six kernels
from each ear. two from opposite
sides of the butt, two from opposite
sides of the middle, and two from op
posite sides of the tip. See that no
two kernels are taken from tho same
row, and if the butt and tip kernels
are taken one Inch from the end of
the ear, this will be an average sam
ple. Having taken the kernels from
the ears, place them in the square
which is numbered to correspond to
the number of the ear. Allow no two
of them to touch, place them withe the
heart side up, and all of the tips
pointing in the same direction. When
grains from all tho ears have been
placed in the squares which corres
pond to the number of the ear from
which they were taken, place another]
piece of wet cloth on top of them and
cover this with 2 to 3 Inches of wet
sawdust. Then place tho box In some
plnco where it will remain warm. At
the end of four days dampen the saw
dust again by sprinkling some warm
water over it. At the end of a week
the tester should be examined by care
fully removing the sawdust and top
cloth. The numbers of all squares
which do not show six big healthy
sprouts should be ascertained, and the
enrs which have the corresponding
numbers should not be planted.
