CARE OF SEED CORN
N01emson College. 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
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!
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. ]

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

statistics of the deparement of labor,

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.

Fight Carried on in Fall Doe* Muck
To Injure the Success of the
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

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.
