I woncer If there's any use saying "Corn" to Connecticut- There hasn't seemed to be, in the recent past. In fact the Intense ami - - complete lack of all Interest in this particu lar crop on the part of Connecticut farmers has been one of the most striking features . of the local agri cultural situation. The state used to raise pood eorn. Occasional and sporadic spurts at the old work by here-and-there exception al farmers have shown that the state can still raise good corn. Most of the lands now devoted to tobacco are nearly' ideal for corn. Probably there is more .money in the weed than In the grain. If there is it would be a manifest waste of good printers ink i to suggest 'any change, there. But, outside the" Valley,; there .are big- areas of land, not suitable or available for the culture oi the plant nicotian, which are. nevertheless. either naturally intended for corn or capable of being made so by cornpe tent tied i men u why, -hen. Is the cultivation of this peculiarly American and enormously vajuaoie crop at present so utterly neg lected in our state? animal reeding Included, wheat is out t me running entirely." It isn't forgotten in others. Even in the south, where cotton was so long: throned king, the better farmers are . turning to corn as an alternative which, in seasons of small cotton yield or low cotton prices, will serve as an anchor to windward, to hold them off the shoals of banKruptcy. In the mid dle west, where, as in Xew Kngland, corn culture had been for thirty, years decreasing, interest in it .is renewing itself. It is in New England, where larger crops and better paying crop's can be grown than in even the south or west, and where its value, per se, is greatest, . that -apathy stil seems to reign. An ' Ohio correspondent of Hoard' Dairyman calls attention to the fact nat corn ana wheat are now at prae--Jcally tne same price per bushel. He joes on-: "You can raise from two to three :imes more per acre than you can of wheat. A bushel of corn is worth nore fo- food' than a. bushtl of wheat, md thi- is ' true if" we confine the omparison-to the grain only and eon ;ider it solely as a human food. "When the entire plant is ' considered and LOUIS E. KENNEDY DANIELSON Undertaker and Embalmer Special Atteri'en to Every Detail. This la absolutely and indubitably correct. The average wheat yield of cue uimea states runs romewhere around fifteen of sixteen hushela per acre. A yield of twenty-five bushels is exceptional. Yet corn yields of Amy ousneis are common) yields of seventy-Ave .bushels are not unusual, and yields of a hundred bushels have been scored on more .than one Con necticut acre. Some one says: "Tee. but it takes more labor to. care for an acre of corn than an acre of wheat, and labor a scarce ana mgn.

These gardens are" to-, be found in about every section of the town and their number runs into the scores.
