Nov. 21.?No doubt many farmers have gone oveer 'their fields this fall and carefully selected good seed corn for next year's planting. They should now -be interested to nowk how the corm can .best be cared for until planting ; time next spring. P. H. Senn, Ex. tension Plant Breeding Specialist, makes the following suggestions on the subject. Seed corn, before it is stored away, should be thoroughly dry. If it ig stored damp ft is likely to mold or freeze. It should never be placed in or about a damp place, such as near a well or old cellar. A <rr^\A Tufaxr fj-k kpotn com is ^ ? -X- j to place it in good tight boxes or barrels. Flour and sugar barrels^ make good containers. The barrels! . I should Ibe placed where the air is. . dry and circulates freely. Such a, place is usually found in the barn ( i loft. . Com weevils, rats and mic? are the worst enemies of seed cornj Damage from these pests can be .pre -v.. j- vented by properly storing and fumi gating with a gas caQled carbonbisulphide, which can) be purchased at drug stores in' a a liquid form. A j pint can costs about forty cents and is enough to fumigate about four barrels of corn. . . After the barrels are in position and the cars of corn have been j ! placed carefully in. them pour about oare-fourth of a pint of the liquid 1 carbon-bisulphide' over the corn in each barred. The liquid f?orms a gas when it comes in contact with _ < the air, and it is necessary that the barrel be tight so that the gas will ^ not leak out through the cracks. ( Spread a corn sack over the top of ( the barrel and on this place a good ^ board or tin cover. Weight down , the cover with a heavy rock or brick j v so that the rats and mice will be , kept out. Pick a clean warm day , on which to do the fumigating. Thig gas can bfe used by any farm j er, but there is one thing he must < be careful about. There must be no ^ ftra near, not even a lighted pipe cigarette, or lantern, for the gas will explode on coming in contact wim nre. < Leave the com m the barrels until next spring, looking after it occa eionally to see that it is not being 1 [ disturbed. ] ' 1 t .. . *1 RETAIL COST of FOOD < INCREASED LAST MONTH ? ! Washington, Nov. 21.?An indi- i cated increase of 2 per cent in the i retail cost of food to the average family in the United States during tho month ending Oct. 15, was reported today by the bureau of labor statistics of the deparement of labor, based on the priccs of 43 articles in 51 cities. By cities, San Fran cisco with an increase of 6 per cent , while Boston, L03 AngeJes, and Philadelphia showed 4 per cent, and Buffalo, Cleveland, and New York were included in those representing 3 per cent. No city reported a docrease bu^ increase in a number, including Chicago, Indianapolis and Milwaukee, was lees than one-half of one per cent. Of the food articles, 14 showed ' an increase which was indicated to be largely seasoned., such 21 pep cent for fresh eggs and 10 per nun* f r\f "kllf-rov lirVvllo 10 cHnWP^ .n decrease and the price on ten remained unchanged.

HOT DOGS HIGH IN GERMANY Washington, Nov. 21?High prices for hot dogs have hit Germany, th Commerce Department has been ad vised by Consul John A. Scott at Dresden. "One of the chief topics of the daj jn Germany" he says, "is the tra mendous increase in meat and sau sage prices. The consumer places th< blame on the butchers, while the lat ter condemn the slaughter houses n-nA f-rnm thprp the hich Drices art OUU **V441 W? 0 A passed on down to the fanner wh< blames high cost of feed. Beef, mutton and pork have risen over 100 pei cent in the last 60 days whil< slaughter house fees have risen 20( ,per cent." VETCH FOR SOIL BUILDING Clemson College.?Hairy Vetch because of its adaptability to all the soil typos jof South Carolina, is the safest legume to sow as a winter soil building crop. It does well on soils ranging from sandy to hea\y clay and will make a fair growth or soil so low in fertilty that crimson clover would be a complete failure. Vetch is a nitrogen gatherer of first importance. A growth sufficient to produce one ton of hay will contain approximately 50 pounds of nitrogen, and the stubble and roots of this will contain about 12 more pounds of nitrogen. This sixty-two pounds of plant nitrogen is equal to the nitrogen in about 417 pounds oi nitrate of soda. Three-fourths of this is gathered from the air by the legume bacteria on the vetch roots and is a clear gain for the farmer. Besides converting air nitrogen intc an available form vetch prevents the loss from the soil by leaching and erosion of approximately 50 pounds of nitrogen per acre. Vetch may be planted either alone or with any small grain, suggests R, W. Hamilton, Specialist in Legumes, who says that on poor soils rye and vetch will give the largest amount oi growth for turning under. Twentj pounds of vetch with one bushel oi rye or two bushels of oats per acre should be used. Seeding may be done broadcast or in the drill. In drilling oats and vetch together the seed ir the hopper should be kept well stirred or the planting will not be even. Inoculation of vetch is absolutely necessary for its successful growth on land that had not previously jrown vetch. Inoculation may be ione by the pure culture or by the joil method. Soil where English peas or sweet peas have grown and produced nodules on their roots may oe used, as these two legumes and fetch are inoculated by the same strain of bacteria. Further information regarding the growing of vetch may be obtained from county agents or from the Ex tension Service of Clemson College. PLAN FOR BENEVOLENCE Preibjrtcrian Church Sets Abide $15,000,000 Atlantic City, Nov. 21.?The Presbyterian Church will have a benevolent budget of $15,000,000 for 1923. According to the decision of the :hurch's budget committee announced today. This is an increase of ?500,000 over the last budget, but is less than was asked for by the Various boards and agencies. FEDERAL OFFICERS ATTACH CAJLU-CURCI'S RECEIPTS Otawa, Nov. '21.?Federal internal officers have attached Madame Galli-iCurci's share of the receipts of a concert given here Jast week in an efforc to obtain payment of income taxeg of $2,000 alleged to be due for concerts in different parts of Canada in the. late two years.

DESTROYING STALKS dcta one u/rpuit e ACtiniU/iJ TTJbCiTlLiJ Fight Carried on in Fall Doe* Muck To Injure the Success of the Next Crop. Clemson College, Cleaning of the fields the destructions of the stalks and the planting of cover crops constitute the most powerful weapons for weevil fighting now m the hands of the farmer, says Prof. A. F Conradi, entomologist, who say3 that by efficient fail from managements the farmer can dictate to a great ex! tent how many weevils shall pass the winter on his farm. Though much warning has already been given by the entomologists and though county agents are preaching stalk destruction right and left many farmers are apparently not convinc1 ed of the need foq immediate stalk destruction, says Professor Conradi,; and do not realize that this is prac| tically the most important single stop in any system of fighting the weevil. Boll weevils multiply in cotton until frost kills it. Many thousands of weevils may occur in each acre of cotton.

The earlier the cotton stalks are destroyed the fewer weevils that will survive the winter, and consequently the smaller the damage to the next crop, As far as possible the stalks should he destroyed two weeks before the first killing frost. In some sections the stalks are uprooted yiled nd burned. This method is very serious disadvantage in 1 destroying a large amount of vegetable matter, which should be turned under. Whenever the farmer is equip ped with plows and mules so that the stalks may be turned under five to six inches after they have been cut down with the chopper, it is a very effective plan, A less effective methods to graze off all green cotton within a period of a few days. What ever method one employs, the destruction of stalks must be thorough. The following are a few of the many advantage? secured from clean ing the field and destroying the Get Your i PH I ij 6 $12.50 [ j 24 $8.50 B [! ? , 10 $7.50 , I E 19 $3.50 C ?! r-p| |i These are I t |j if you are !j this line it i\ I j Opera House ft AND MRS.
